Right in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, within walking distance of the Empire State Building and the Macy's flagship at Herald Square
This Hampton Inn's location is one of its biggest draws. It's just a block from the Empire State Building, the Macy's at Herald Square, and several subway lines. It's also a short walk to the transportation hub of Penn Station, with LIRR, NJ Transit, and Amtrak service.
The hotel also sits in the unofficial area of Midtown Manhattan known as Koreatown, surrounded by tons of Asian restaurants and karaoke joints. It's not hard to find good Korean BBQ or bars in the area, and unlike other business districts or areas of Midtown, the neighborhood doesn't shut down at midnight.
This mid-size chain hotel has a convenient location in Midtown Manhattan -- less than a block from the Empire State Building -- and is one of the best options for the area in this price range. Big, contemporary rooms come equipped with flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and USB charging ports. The numerous freebies include hot breakfast, gym access, business center use, and coffee and tea service throughout the day -- but you may have to share an elevator with the cleaning staff. The Holiday Inn NYC - Manhattan 6th Avenue offers a comparable experience, so it's worth comparing rates.
