Midtown - Times Square

The Mansfield Hotel

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love It

  • A regal 1903 Beaux-Arts building with bay windows
  • Refurbished, clubby library with marble fireplace and wood panelling
  • On a quiet side street less than two blocks from Times Square, between 5th and 6th Avenues
  • A neighbourhood full of similarly handsome landmarks, like Grand Central Terminal and New York Public Library

Rooms & Rates

Just east of Times Square is a neighbourhood full of turn-of-the-century landmarks. The main branch of the New York Public Library is a colonnaded Beaux-Arts beauty with leafy Bryant Park as its backyard. A few blocks away rise the soaring arches and pediments of Grand Central Terminal, right next to the silvery deco of the Chrysler Building. Within four blocks of all of this is the quiet, cozy Mansfield Hotel, a handsome building from 1903 that emanates history through its hallways and lobby.

One of the hotel's most famous guests was Max von Gerlach, a flamboyant socialite who may have been the inspiration for the Great Gatsby. The lobby certainly seems fit for a baron, with a clubby parlour covered in honey-coloured wood, with stocked bookshelves, leather armchairs pulled around classic table games and a gray marble fireplace.

History also means historical proportions, so hallways are on the narrow side and rooms are compact -- the petite room lives up to its name -- but they are clean and comfortable. Wi-Fi is complimentary in the lobby, club room and M Bar.

Times Square and Broadway theatres are less than two blocks west. Just around the corner to the east starts the most popular stretch of Fifth Avenue shopping.

Like all NYC hotels of that vintage, a little shop-worn. Unable to regulate overheated room.

The location was good.
Other Comments
The room and bathroom were tiny -not enough space for 2 adults. The hallways were way to small. The elevators were slow and very small. There wasn't a coffee/tea maker in the room. There wasn't an ice bucket. The shades did not close, the window unit air conditioner was noisy, the television was fuzzy. They have not updated the rooms to accommodate charging devices.

The location isn't that far from Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and a few other stops.

The rooms have been updated and no, there is no central heat and air. Really,if you are visiting and running around you will only be in the fron to sleep and shower. The bed is comfortable, the staff is helpful, and overall the hotel is a good place to stay.

This hotel is excellent as long as you book it knowing exactly what to expect. Yes, the rooms aren't overly large, they're on the dark side, and the bathroom is quite small. However, the location is excellent and the staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. It also has that ambience and character that you won't find in newer hotels.

The size of the room was ridiculously small, there were no amenities, there was no temperature control in the room, and it was very very loud

Classic architecture, within easy walking distance to Times Square and the Theater District (as well as great restaurants) and a clean on-site exercise facility.
