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.

Disappointment

When we arrived we were not given our breakfast vouchers. We were unaware of needing them which lead to a embarrassing situation the next morning at the restaurant the next morning. Our room was next to the linen closet and elevator. We did not get one good nights sleep out of the four we stayed there. The refrigerator in the room did not work and the microwave would cracket and pop when used. All the activities in NYC was great as usual and we will be back to NYC in the summer but not at this hotel.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

For an experience not to be missed is to eat at The Russian Tea Room. It is a little expensive, but well worth it. The food is excellent as is the service and the interior is too beautiful to describe.

"Too Noisy"

Very friendly staff, clean room, great locations. They gave us a room on 2nd floor on a Sunday night stay. It was horribly noisy. Not being familiar with New York, it took us a while to realize that the noise was due to the Subway passing under ground. As my 5 year old commented, the subway noise was not very disturbing outside of the hotel, but inside it was a different story. Got some sleep after mid-night on Sunday night and woke up very early Monday morning due to subway noise. According to the Staff, the noise is not as bad on higher floors. If so, then they should not have any rooms on 2nd floor and dedicate the entire floor to sport center or for other purpose. The room had a view over looking the 8th Ave, but not a whole lot to see on 8th Ave. Bad experience. Family was looking forward for a nice stay, but totally dis-appointed

Great stay

Easy and close to the subway, Times Square, and Broadway. A central location to be able to branch out to the rest of the city.

Great location, but a bit expensive

On the plus side, hotel was nice and clean and in a really good location. The staff were fine. The ergonomic chair was sold as a big plus, but is probably more suited to business clients. On the minus side, the lighting in the room was very poor and the coffee maker was difficult to fill, because of its position - these are two problems that could easily be fixed with a little thought. I discovered too late that the New York Today newspaper is included in the hotel price as a default, and guests have to opt out or they are charged. This is petty and wrong.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Check out the New York Pass if you're thinking of seeing the big tourist sites - Met, MoMA, Empire State, Liberty, etc. as you may save money if you're doing all 6 of them!

Double Charged

Although I pre-paid for my hotel, the hotel charged my credit card for the full amount. The hotel would not remove it and stated that I had to call my bank to resolve. Their attitude was "oh well, technology mistakes happen". The desk clerk even told me its happened to her, as if that was supposed to make me feel better?
