Although Murray Hill might not be as well-known a New York neighborhood as, say, Times Square, it's lack of national recognition means it's a popular place for locals to settle. It also means it's a great place for visitors to find a quiet night's sleep.
Though this location is not typically within walking distance to big sights: Grand Central Terminal and the Chrysler Building are within a 20-minute walk or a $10 cab ride. The United Nations, Times Square and the Empire State Building are within a 40-minute walk or a short 10-minute cab ride. This location is better for visitors looking for an off-the-beaten-path option away from the crowds and traffic noise.
At the hotel, rooms are particularly spacious for Manhattan, with a pillow menu that lets you pick from six fluffy options. Head further up to the top floor to reach the rooftop bar. Open seasonally, it serves up views of skyscrapers along with fancy drinks. Accompany your drinks with gourmet burgers that are available in the lobby restaurant.
