This 4-star midtown-east hotel puts guests right in the heart of Manhattan but far enough removed from Times Square to keep things a bit calmer. The Maxwell is within a few blocks of plenty of NYC destinations including Rockefeller Center, Saint Patrick's Cathedral and MoMA. 

Accommodations range from one-queen or one-king rooms up to sprawling penthouse suites with a rooftop terrace. We like the one-bedroom suites for their large windows and great city views, loft-like style and separate seating area that offers plenty of space in which to stretch out. All rooms include minibars, flat-screen TVs, bathrobes, Bliss Spa amenities and Wi-Fi. 

On-site dining includes cocktails and small bites at the Oasis Bar and Living Room Lounge; breakfast, lunch and dinner at the restaurant, Heartbeat; and there's 24-hour room service. The hotel also features a fitness centre and valet-parking service.

Likely one of the best value hotels in NYC. Location, quality of room, added benefits make the Maxwell an excellent choice.

Need to update furniture. Peeling sofas in lobby. Wood furniture chipped and out of date.

Took quite a while to get checked in (long line). At a 4 star hotel I don't expect to be waken at 230am to a woman screaming profanities at her SO. There was something missing from the snack bar and I did not notice until the morning...informed them...not sure they cared and hoping they don't charge me.

Location was great, easy access to Grand Central, theaters and many restaurants.
Other Comments
We arrived in the city early and stopped to leave our bags before going to explore the city. The check in person was friendly and very accommodating and said she had a room available. She proceeded to ask if we wanted a high or low floor. It was a pleasant surprise. They also provided a voucher for the Living Room bar, which we enjoyed after our day. We will be back.
