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 in located in the center of Manhattan, walking distance to a lot of places.
Crossing the street there is a market where breakfast and snacks are served, there is another place in the corner of the 45 st and 2 ave where food can be purchased. There are also bars and a lot of shops near to the property. Room are comfortable and the customer service is good.
We are Worldmark members and needed a place for a couple days in Manhattan so we used the Club Wyndham arrangement for our first time. This was a really nice place with a great location, friendly staff, lovely rooms and a fun roof garden/lounge (only it was rainy and cold, so we didn't really take full advantage). Nice rooms. And their restaurant suggestions even included a Szechuanese restaurant, Land of Plenty (see my reviews) that was in walking distance. A great experience all round!
It was such a great place, modern accommodations, and amazing staff. We could walk to almost everything we wanted to do from here. We paid for parking in a garage across the street that was also very convenient because we drove there. Walk to everything, or Uber to farther away. Will definitely return! We had a view of the Chrysler Building from our bed when I woke up. Awesome!!
We stayed right after New Years at the Wyndham 45 in New York City. This was my children's first visit to the Big Apple (ages 9 & 3) and the Wyndham 45 did not disappoint.
First, this is a timeshare property. And, the rooms were not quite as large as other Wyndham properties, but I think in New York that is to be expected. And, I imagine the rooms are much larger than most hotel rooms in the midtown area. Ours was maybe 600 sq ft.
The rooms and lobby are very modern and expertly decorated. There is no restaurant onsite, however, several within walking distance. There is a cafe right across the street and an Irish Pub right next door (serves food & drinks).
We had a one bedroom suite that looked out to the Chrysler Building. The living room windows looked towards the Hudson. We were on the 23rd floor and I was very impressed with our views. The hotel is very conveniently located as Grand Central Station is only a few blocks walk (maybe 5 min), as was Rockefeller Center, and most places we wanted to visit. Your are smack dab in midtown and with no shortage of restaurants within walking distance or things to do: Top of the Rock, Rockefeller Center, Bryant Park, Empire State Building.
Our room had a kitchen with a full size refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, and a table with four chairs, as well as comfy sofa and chairs. There is a washer/dryer on the third floor and it is free to use (very helpful). The hotel gives you a starter kit for coffee, dish soap, shampoo, etc. We were only there for 3 nights so we did not have a midweek cleaning, but understand this is not a "hotel property". Your room is only cleaned once in a week. That's okay with me because I prefer this to daily strangers in my room.
Our one bedroom had a King in the master and a pull out couch in the living room. The pull out couch was VERY comfortable. And, I really wish all Wyndhams had this type of pull out mattress. My kids loved it and it is not your typical 'spring buster' style mattress. The king in the master was also extremely comfortable. There are only 6 or so condos per floor so the entire complex is really very small compared to other Wyndhams.
The diner and several restaurants you get a 15% discount if you tell them you are staying at the Wyndham. But, my favorite overall was Davios Northern Italian Restaurant about 2 min away. The restaurant was FABULOUS. And, the manager (Sean) came out and gave us a free appetizer. It was shrimp spring rolls and they were absolutely delicious. They made my small chidren feel very welcome; my husband and I were absolutely impressed with this recommendation by the Wyndham staff.
I found the timeshare sales staff very helpful as they acted as concierges. We did not do the tour or presentation, but I believe they acted very respectfully towards us. Some people complaining just don't know how to say 'no'. Don't let that stop you. This is a great condo/hotel, and the staff works very hard for their guest.
I travel frequently and highly recommend Wyndham 45 as your headquarters while visting the Big Apple!
The gift they give you for listening to the pitch of lies is only good for 44 days. They tell you a year and they will not help you if u missed the date. They make you pay $45 in advance for a breakfast that consists of cold eggs and chewy bacon.
