More Room Types

Aptly named for the intersection it presides over in Midtown East, Hotel 48Lex New York is designed to feel like a home away from home. Guests are greeted curbside by an attentive staff that whisks them through check-in and directly to their rooms.

The intimate property has 116 rooms and suites, each modeled in the fashion of a luxurious Manhattan apartment. Pied-à-terre accommodations are elegantly appointed with floor-to-ceiling windows, stocked kitchenettes and marble bathrooms with glassed-in showers and deep soaking tubs. Complimentary Wi-Fi and large desks accommodate business travelers, while Egyptian cotton linens and in-room spa treatments pamper all guests. Designed primarily for business travelers and couples, most rooms fit only two guests. Visitors staying in suites enjoy extra luxuries, including higher floors with excellent skyline views and terraces large enough to host dinner parties.

Waking up in the city that never sleeps, guests can grab an espresso, Americano or cappuccino in the lobby lounge before starting the day or sit down to the free breakfast spread of fresh fruit, Danishes, meats, cheese, parfaits and more. After hours of meetings or sightseeing, visitors are welcomed back with a complimentary wine and cheese reception, offered nightly. For heartier fare, the Lexington Brass serves New American cuisine and a pantry of Dean & Deluca snacks and sommelier-chosen wines is available around the clock for late-night cravings.

The hotel’s gym is open 24 hours a day, or guests can head four blocks east past the UN to run or walk along the East River Promenade with views of the iconic “Coca-Cola” sign in Long Island City. Just a 10-minute walk from Grand Central Terminal, the property is near Bryant Park and the New York Public Library Main Branch, Times Square, the Theater District and subway lines branching out to the rest of the city.
