Courtyard New York Manhattan/Fifth Avenue
Affordable comfort in a convenient midtown location.
Business travelers looking for a break from hard-on-the-expense-account midtown hotels will find respite here. Formerly the Hotel 5A, this property is right in the center of it all. The 30-floor tower is near Times Square, the Empire State Building, the New York Public Library and Grand Central Station. With just seven rooms per floor, guests can enjoy the quiet they probably crave after a day of midtown rush rush rush. The hotel has 181 rooms and four suites. Be sure to ask for one with a view. The rooms have straightforward but pleasant enough contemporary décor and are equipped with the expected amenities, such as cable TV and in-room movies. This fairly priced hotel bumps up its value with complimentary Internet access. Spacious desk areas and ergonomic chairs offer office-away-from-home comfort. Salmon River Restaurant specializes in seafood, as well as New American cuisine.
