Just off Fifth Avenue, the cozy fireplace and shelves of books of the Mansfield's welcoming Club Room have been lovingly restored to their original beaux-arts splendor. Designed by the architect of the New York Public Library and St. Patrick's Cathedral, the Mansfield is one of New York's truly precious architectural treasures, evoking its glamorous past as much as it is keeping up with the modern present.
Modern Luxury in NY
The Mansfield's historic guest rooms are anything but stuck in the past, providing an iHome radio/alarm clock portal, flat-panel LCD televisions and on-demand movies, a full mini-bar and 24-hour room service. The pet-friendly Mansfield is ideal for families, providing cribs upon request, WiFi in public areas and offering laundry services for a small fee. The hotel's M Bar is one of the most elegant lounges in midtown.
Scenes of Manhattan
Ideally situated at 12 West 44th Street, a stone's throw from Grand Central Terminal, the historic grandeur of the Mansfield is a bare handful of steps from the heart of New York, Times Square and the world-class shows of Broadway whilst nearby Madison Square Gardens provides sporting spectacle. For guests of the Mansfield simply wanting to relax a little tranquility can be found at Bryant Park, which is just two blocks away.
I used to stay here all the time. First time back in 14 years. The location is awesome and the staff is still very attentive and friendly. The rooms are very comfortable if you like boutique hotels. It has a wonderful charm and is clean.
It was very unfortunate that the bar/lounge was closed during my stay. I have always loved having cocktails in there and was looking forward to it. On another note, I was surprised to find a Dell TV in the room which did not display a good picture.... The TV was probably put in 14 years ago along with the A/V system. One issue of note is that a my Verizon cell service barely had 1 bar on an interior room(not the fault of the hotel but a reality). I would recommend the Mansfield give away the Wi-Fi for free.
The staff were helpful and very friendly, especially the bellman and the reception staff The hotel was very clean. The rooms and public areas were also excellently furnished.
The bathroom was very small - It was not possible to sit on the toilet and close the door in room 803! also the bathroom floor was higher than the room, resulting in a cut foot on the first night
Helpfullness of front desk staff and central location of hotel
staff attitude and promptness
lack of towels unacceptable
the room was disgusting: small, dirty, not comfortable at all !!!
The location was perfect, our room very pretty
