Great location

Room was a nice size but on second floor overlooking all air conditioners with absolutely horrible view. The breakfast information described was very misleading since it is only free available for Hilton Gold members . Two nights we had to call for toliet tissue because no extra rolls were left by housekeeping. Plumbing issues in hotel caused toliets and all running water to be disgustingly brown and the toliets looked like backed up sewage which hotel described as sludge. Did send bottled water to room so I could take medication. As far as location...It is great for theater and Times Square. Management did present restaurant certificates after I complained and breakfast was very good. You can not earn hotel points when boking with third party ! Lesson learned.

Stayed one Night after Broadway play

Reservations and check in very smooth! We arrived an hour and a half before check in and went right to the room with no problem. Very convenient location to Times Square and the theater district. Ten short blocks to Central Park. 8th Ave is a little seedy in spots but still some good restaurants and bars and we felt safe even at night.

Great Girls Getaway

The location is wonderful. It is an easy walk to Fifth Ave and all the associated sites, i.e. tv studios, theaters and resturant row etc. without the noise and crowds. The staff was friendly and informative. The hotel resturant was very good and its staff was also excellent. Would gladly stay there again.

Great location in NYC

Get at Metrocard and use the Subway, station very close to the hotel and from there you can link up to anywhere in the City. Cheap, fast and convenient.

Perfect!

This hotel is perfect. It's right in the center of everything and you can walk to dinning, shows, shopping, Times Square. The rooms are great, clean, modern, and spacious. There were three women in this room with plenty of room to spare. No tripping over each other. The staff was very helpful and always greeted us with a smile. Highly recommend this hotel.

Nice for the price

Right in the heart of mid-town. Close to Times Square & Central Park. Nice hotel. Comfy mattress. Only problem; couldn't tell if the walls were paper thin, or our neighbors were screaming at one another. Fridge and microwave in the room made breakfast easy. Priced right.
