Great place at lowest rates! A review of Seton Hotel
I searched for a long time before finding The Seton. It is the only hotel situated in central Manhattan, offering a double-room w private bath below $100. And I think they are more honest than any other hotel, including everything in the given rate, so there are no 'hidden' extras (like tax, local tax or other fees). Sure, the rooms are old and rather worn. What would you expect with an old house, and such low rates? But I cannot agree with the above reviewer, saying that it's not clean enough. Everyday the cleaning-woman had been in our room, making it tidy and aired. If you want new & shiny interior - stay at Hilton or Trump International - and pay $500 to $1000 a night! No option for a regular Swedish vacation-traveller! We found The Seton in '99 and returned in '03....and next time we will stay there again, although the rate rised from $85 to $95. Still the most value for money! Just a couple of blocks from Grand Central, great security (always staff in the entrance - no one gets in unallowed), fairly roomy w nice fresh bathrooms, TV, fridge, aircondition...what more can one ask for? If you're on a budget & don't care for luxury - this is the one!
