Midtown Manhattan is one of the most popular areas to stay for visitors because of its central location. Times Square is at its center, Hell’s Kitchen to the west, Grand Central to the east, and the Empire State Building to the south. Travelers have their pick from tons of activities and accommodation options. From classic New York charm to trendy rooftop bars, these are the seven best hotels in Midtown Manhattan to choose from, listed from most affordable to most extravagant.

Across the street from Grand Central, Club Quarters boasts a lounge and terrace on the 27th floor with north and south views along Lexington Avenue. The rooms are clean, and get great sunlight – unusual for such a congested area of Manhattan. Suitable for business or pleasure, the hotel is in a great location to explore the city by subway, and by light rail, should your travels take you to the wider tri-state area. In the basement, Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse serves up power lunch classics, including a particularly fantastic crispy chicken liver appetizer.

Not only does the boutique Bernic Hotel now offer a seasonal open-air rooftop lounge with views of the Chrysler Building, most guest rooms come with a private balcony (or, at least as “private” as anything really gets in Manhattan). Its location can’t be beat, especially if you’re coming in via train to catch a Broadway show: the Bernic sits on 47th Street between Lexington and 3rd Avenues, making it a convenient walk to both Grand Central Station and Times Square.

The Library Hotel is so named because of its location down the street from the New York Public Library in Bryant Park. What could feel like a gimmick here, actually isn’t. Each room number corresponds to the Dewey Decimal system and features its own miniature library of books. The hotel is packed with old-school New York charm, and the inviting dark wood and tufted leather is the textbook definition of cozy. The 14th floor bar and terrace, named the “Writer’s Den” and “Poetry Garden,” offer stunning views of Midtown’s Art Deco architecture.

Who wouldn’t want to rest their head in a place that hosted former President Barack Obama and the Sultan of Brunei? The brownstones of the storied Lotte New York Palace Hotel, and its gorgeous courtyard, have sat on Madison Avenue and 50th Street since the mid-1800s. The 55-story hotel built on top of it was constructed in the 1970s. A favorite location of production studios to feature in film and television (including, most recently, Gossip Girl), the luxury hotel is a fun slice of New York pop culture – if you can afford it. Rates start around $500 and up.

Admit it: no New York hotel is more famous than The Plaza. Overlooking Central Park South, it’s as quintessentially New York as Carrie Bradshaw (who shared the small screen with The Plaza in one of the most iconic scenes of Sex and the City). Once facing an uncertain future, the hotel has seen many different owners (including the current president of the United States) and has undergone several changes. Half of the building has been converted into condominiums, and an upscale food hall open to the public has been installed on the concourse level. To many, though, The Plaza will forever be the home of the beloved children’s book character, Eloise. The hotel honors the fictional character with a tea and gift shop in her name, as well as her very own suite, outfitted by Betsey Johnson, which guests can rent by the night for a cool $995.
