Great Location & Stay

This was a perfect location--a short walk to theaters, Times Square, restaurants, etc. The rooms were not the biggest, but very clean and comfortable. The staff is exceptionally friendly and accommodating. Would definitely stay there again.

If looking for economical but a variety in food choices, the food emporium on the corner is great. It has a ton of great tasting prepared foods upstairs and a grocery store downstairs.

Great hotel in the heart of Times Square

Parking was close by, and the hotel validated (saved a few bucks). Room had an interesting view down 48th St., not scenic, but looking down the street was better than looking at buildings directly in front. Room was cool and clean. Location was ideal! I used to live in this neighborhood, and it has never looked better. Breakfast coupon was nice touch. The cost of the actual breakfast would have been ridiculous even by NY standards, but the price was included in the room rate. The selection was a little better than expected, more European than American style, but nice offerings and very good strong coffee. WIll definitely put the HGI on my list of NY favorites!

Use the parking deck next door. You can find cheaper, but if you love your car, you cannot beat the indoor garage.

Perfect location

This is a great hotel for those in town to see Broadway shows. You can walk to all the theaters. Clean, nicely appointed rooms and helpful staff. Some street noise, but better than staying directly on Times Square. In-room coffee maker and microwave, small refrigerator and free Internet access in room. Nice linens, reasonable price, no attitude.

Great location and good value

I went to Manhattan with my wife and 15 year old son to see a play, go to the museums, go to little italy for dinner and take in New York. We had been to NYC many times and had stayed in mid-town before, but this was by far the most convenient location yet (1/2 a block from the theater where we saw Lombardi, 1/2 a block from the subway and a few block from time square.) Also the rooms were clean and big enough for 3, the service was friendly and helpful and we felt as though we received very good value. We recommend the Hilton Garden Inn Times Square.

great affordable vacation!

The Hotel was very clean and the hotel staff was very helpful. This Hilton is walking distance to everything, especially Time Square & to the Broadway shows. The views from my room were great! I was very happy with this hotel & we will revisit this hotel again!

Great Staff, Location, and Amenities

I was on the third floor in a room next to the linen room. I could always hear the subway trains go by, noise from the street, and noise from the linen room. Having lived in the city before, all the noise didn't bother me. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. The room had a queen bed, large desk, large dresser, and plenty of space in which to move around. Having a microwave, coffeepot, and fridge was great! There was a nice sized flat screen TV, complimentary wireless (or wired) internet, and remote printing available. The in-room AC worked great; the room was never too hot or too cold. The only minor issue I had was that the water in the shower took a good 7 or 8 minutes to fully heat up. The hotel is in a great location; just a short walk to The Lion King, Wicked, and the subway. The walk to/from Port Authority was not bad either; took about 10 minutes. Overall, the hotel was great and I would stay there again.

Take advantage of the microwave in the room. Bring some bowls and spoons and heat up a can of soup instead of buying an expensive meal.

Hilton Garden Inn Times Sq

Staff was wonderful and very helpful. Location was wonderful. We walked everywhere as everything we wanted to see or do was close by. The only thing that could have made the visit better would have been a make-up mirror and heating lamp in the bathroom. We were in New York with our grown married grandchildren taking in the sites and a show.
