The Wyndham Midtown 45 sports ultramodern style and spacious guestrooms suited for extended stays and large families. The minimalist lobby welcomes guests with vaulted ceilings, a sleek inset gas fireplace and low-slung leather seating. Chandeliers dangle inside iron cages and industrial bare-bulbs light the Atrium area. This simple sleep also features wood and leather furniture designed by architect David Rockwell.
Bed and Bath
The 199 apartment-style guestrooms feel like bachelor pads, with tricked out tech, leather furnishings and plush pillow-top bedding. Cream, beige and chocolate accents lend an earthy vibe, as well as the custom blond wood furniture. The studio, One-Bedroom and Two-Bedroom Suites offer multiple closets, Poggenpohl kitchens with Gaggenau cook tops and SubZero fridges, plus Sharp flat-screen HD TVs in every bedroom, living area and bathroom. While limestone bathrooms are on the small side, they come with rain showers and Earth Therapy amenities, including facial soap, a shave kit and mouthwash.
Stay in shape and hit the third floor for a workout at the 24-hour gym, which is stocked with treadmills, ellipticals, benches and weights. Although there’s no on-site restaurant, studios and suites offer an ideal kitchen space to whip up a tasty spread. Hit the Sky Lounge on the 33rd floor for sweeping city views and a happy hour wine and cheese reception (Mondays and Fridays at 5-6 p.m.). Or, grab a bite at the top eateries nearby before heading to the city’s best sights and shops, just steps from the hotel.
In the Area
The Wyndham Midtown 45 is a stone’s throw from the iconic Grand Central Terminal and Bryant Park, which hosts movies in the summer and ice skating in winter. Go on a New York-style shopping spree down Fifth Ave or wander the galleries inside the Museum of Modern Art. For a hearty slab of steak, try Sparks Steakhouse (paired with a Cabernet from its impressive wine list) or the historic 1920s Palm restaurant. Sushi Yasuda, one of the city’s most distinguished Japanese joints, is only a few blocks away, and The Perfect Pint next door to the hotel is ideal for some late-night Irish brews.
How to Get There
The hotel staff was very pleasant, we had a few complaints and they hand wrote us a letter to apologize and left us some cookies.
To start when we came in at check in time (4pm)they told us 30 minutes it was 2 hours before our room was ready. The bathtub looked like it hadn’t been cleaned around the glass and the tile grout was dirty. There was only one small trash can in the entire place and the coffee machine was like a tea bag heater. They did offer coffee all day in the lobby so that was good. They did come in to clean the suite but the tub still was mediocre. There also wasn’t any thing for breakfast. Luckily there were some really good places on the same block.
You could hear the people in the rooms on the same floors alarms going off and talking(clearly)
I would probably not stay here again because it was very expensive for the things we actually were happy about.
Once again I want to state the staff was amazing! And the view from the 33 floor were nice as well.
We recently went on a trip to NYC. We stayed at this hotel because we looked at pictures online and the rooms looked big and modern with large windows. When we arrived we came to our room that was the size of a dorm room with about 1.5ft on each side of the bed. The one small dorm window stared at a brick wall. The bathroom cannot accomadate more than 1 person at a time due to the size. Our room stayed at a stifling 75 degrees. They are constantly trying to sell you and if you refuse they have no use for you. They will not bring you more towel except for trading out you wash cloth and towel upon request. Forget about getting a new floor towel or hand towel. Also, they leave a cart in the middle of the hall with trash bags to put your used towels in. No room service, no restaurant, no cleaning. We will NEVER return. Save your money and go somewhere else.
Very spacious room. And the location is great, walking distance to subway, rockefeller and many restaurants around the hotel. Staff are very helpful. I love the heater/AC it operates very quietly. One thing I noticed is that you can hear loudly conversations from outside the room.
Excellent accommodations and staff very friendly and hard working . Location is excellent ,a hidden gem in Manhattan . The only challenge was the aggressive sales people in the lobby , stay clear of them and you will have a grand time. Activities are mediocre , outdoor deck at night amazing . Check out the Chrysler Building white lights and the Hemsley building green lights .
A very good hotel. I just have a question the hotel charged me 150 dollars for security deposit. I used my debit card and i checked in twice so i was charged 300 dollars. how many days will i get my money back. travelling from the philippines.
