Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Located in the Midtown East section of the city in a neighborhood known as Murray Hill, The Court – A St. Giles Premier Hotel is contemporary and convenient. A five-minute walk to Grand Central Terminal means easy access to four subway lines to zip around the city. The New York Public Library and eateries around Bryant Park are a 10-minute walk away.

Rooms are spacious by Manhattan standards and designed in the hues of an extravagant box of chocolates, with dark brown and coffee tones and cherry-red accents. Upgrading to a terrace suite gives you direct views of the shimmering Art Deco Chrysler Building, a well-known icon on the city’s skyline. Call the hotel’s Beer and Buns restaurant a day in advance to have them prepare the $250 Indulgence Burger -- a savory blend of Kobe beef, foie gras, caviar and white truffles.

Other Comments: one little problem: shower curtain was hung too high--did not reach down beyond tub wall. Not easy to avoid flooding of bathroom floor.

Enjoyed Most: room size great for NEW YORK CITY.
Other Comments: the thermostat in my room was broken. room was 80 degrees when I went into it - after numerous hours after the engineer fixed it the room finally became comfortable. when I mentioned this to the front desk in the morning the manager just said sorry. I think they could have taken a discount off or offered coffee or something for the inconvenience.
