“Elegance Without Attitude” (Michelangelo Hotel)
The Michelangelo Hotel is located at 152 West 51 Street, near Times Square and the Broadway theaters. Its slogan is "Elegance Without Attitude."

The Michelangelo Hotel
152 W 51st St
NEW YORK, NY, US 10019

The Michelangelo Hotel in Manhattan, N.Y., lives up to its Italian heritage, from the piped-in opera music to Baci Perugina chocolates provided during turndown service. Travel + Leisure magazine named the Michelangelo as one of the world's greatest hotels and Conde Nast Traveler placed the hotel on its "Gold List for Best Places to Stay in the Whole World." Guests in the city that never sleeps are in a prime location, within walking distance of Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center, Broadway's bright lights and Fifth Avenue's shopping temptations. Within three miles are Carnegie Hall, Central Park, the Metropolitan Opera and numerous museums.
Decorated in neoclassical, Art Deco or country French styles, the Michelangelo's guestrooms average 425 square feet and feature Frette Italian bathrobes, two televisions, and Bose stereos and CD players.

For "elegance without attitude," the hotel's motto, and a prime Midtown location, travelers can't miss by staying at the Michelangelo Hotel.
