Hotel 373 Fifth Avenue Rating: 3.0 Pearls
Gramercy and Murray Hill, Manhattan, New York City

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Short walk to the Empire State Building and Times Square
  • Two to four blocks from nine subway lines
  • Small but well-equipped rooms feature flat-screen TVs and iPod docks
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Pets under 20 pounds welcome (fee)

Cons

  • Cramped standard rooms only fit a full-size bed
  • No fitness center (guests may buy discounted passes to a nearby gym)
  • No on-site restaurant or bar

Bottom Line

Hotel 373 doesn't offer much -- no gym, no restaurant, no business center, not even much of a lobby -- and its 70 rooms have barely enough space for the bed (in the case of the standard rooms, that's only a full-size bed). In Murray Hill, there are better, equally well-located hotels for the price, like the Affinia Dumont.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the northern, suit-and-tie section of Murray Hill, directly on the famous shopping stretch of Fifth Avenue (though most of the upscale designer shops are about 20 blocks north)

Hotel 373 is located directly on Fifth Avenue (meaning its street-facing rooms are a bit noisier), next to a Starbucks and amid beautiful old buildings and a wide range of shops. Grand Central Terminal, Bryant Park, the Morgan Library & Museum, and the Macy's flagship store are all within walking distance, as are many restaurants and bars. But most of the iconic designer shopping -- Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Tiffany's, and more -- is about 15 to 20 blocks north.

Primarily residential, the neighborhoods of Gramercy and Murray Hill don't have the tourist crowds of Times Square or Midtown East. For most visitors, the main draw is that it's a quiet, convenient place to stay, just outside the theaters, funky shops, and restaurants of the East Village (to the south) and the business-focused hub and high-end Fifth Avenue shopping of Midtown East (to the north).

  • Two blocks from B, D, F, M, N, Q, R, and W subway lines; four blocks from the 6 subway line
  • 20-minute bus ride to Central Park
  • 10-minute walk to Times Square
  • Five-minute walk to the Empire State Building
  • 30-minute subway ride to the ferry terminal to visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
  • 15-minute bus or subway ride to Rockefeller Center
  • 25-minute subway ride to the American Museum of Natural History
  • 30-minute bus or subway ride to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (the "Met") and 20-minute bus ride to the Museum of Modern Art (the "MoMA")

 Airport Transportation

About 30 to 90 minutes from three airports

New York has three nearby airports: JFK, LaGuardia, and Newark (in New Jersey). Getting to town from JFK or LaGuardia is usually more convenient than getting there from Newark, but travel times are heavily dependent on the time of day and traffic conditions. From JFK, a taxi to anywhere in Manhattan costs a flat rate of $45 and takes around an hour in average conditions. From LaGuardia, a metered cab ride to midtown Manhattan costs about $40 and can take 30 minutes if traffic is light, three times that if it's bad. Rides from Newark cost at least $50 (plus tolls) and can take more than 90 minutes. It's customary to tip your driver 15 to 25 percent.

Those looking to save some cash can use the privately run shuttle buses that are available at all three airports for about $15 per person. For more information on the shuttles, go to Super Shuttle or New York Airport Service. Public transit is also available for as little as $7.5 per person, but travel can take up to two hours and involve a lot of lugging bags up and down stairways.

 Bottom Line

Hotel 373 doesn't offer much -- no gym, no restaurant, no business center, not even much of a lobby -- and its 70 rooms have barely enough space for the bed (in the case of the standard rooms, that's only a full-size bed). In Murray Hill, there are better, equally well-located hotels for the price, like the Affinia Dumont.
