About YMCA Vanderbilt
Located on the east side of Midtown Manhattan a few blocks from the United Nations, the YMCA Vanderbilt is a bustling neighborhood center. By day, thousands of New Yorkers rush past it on the commute to work. By evening, neighborhood residents take advantage of the Vanderbilt’s gym, and its host of community outreach programs, either pacing on the treadmills directly behind the glass wall separating the gym from the reception area or dropping off their wards.
Visitors to the city also converge at this community hotel, using it as a convenient, secure, and affordable Manhattan headquarters. Guests of the hotel get access to the YMCA Vanderbilt’s fitness facilities, while taking advantage of close proximity to city landmarks including the New York Public Library, Bryant Park, and the Theatre District/Times Square. Neighborhood dining options also include landmark eats including legendary steakhouse Smith & Wollensky and the Waldorf-Astoria’s Bull & Bear restaurant.
The lodgings are dorm style with shared bathrooms and free wi-fi accessible only in the lobby, but the YMCA Vanderbilt is no rowdy college dorm. Quiet Hours go into effect after 11pm, and only registered guests are allowed upstairs.
Tourists and business travelers on a tight budget will most appreciate the YMCA’s secure, affordable rooms and proximity to key Midtown sights including the United Nations.
From street food to sandwich shops to pricey power lunch venues, dining options abound in every flavor at every price range in the immediate vicinity of the YMCA Vanderbilt.
