Convenient location; our room was noisy

Stayed in a king room with a couch bed with my two grown kids in mid-July 2011. We have all traveled extensively both in the U.S. and abroad. Bed was comfy and adjustable; couch bed was a little firm because it was just a pleather fouton, no mattress, made up with two flat sheets and a blanket from the closet. Second floor corner room with a very bad view of a broken generator next to some HVAC equipment. Felt the vibrations from the subway, and heard lots of street noise. Bathroom amenities included ear plugs, as well as Neutrogena products. Bathroom was a little small, but it was very clean. Refrigerator and microwave were very clean and handy. Free wi-fi was very convenient, and there were a lot of electrical outlets. Did not eat at the restaurant; chose instead to go across the street to the grocery store/deli for $4 breakfast sandwiches and snacks, and out for lunch and dinner. Property was very convenient to subway stations, theaters, and nice dinner restaurants: within easy walking distance to all. Easy (for us) walking distance to upper Midtown attractions such as Grand Central and Rockefeller Center. One stop from Columbus Circle/Central Park, two or three from Union Square. Felt very secure since there were often two very competent-looking employees asking to see room keys before guests could enter the elevator. Check in was maybe 5 minutes; check out was maybe 1 minute. The one concierge I spoke with about theater tickets was very helpful, professional, and knowledgeable. (In the end, however, I decided to use my Playbill discount, and not the concierge service.) The 24-hour convenience store within the hotel was stocked with just about one of everything, from tummy medicines to protein bars to I Heart NY nail files, and the clerks were friendly and helpful. I would stay there again, but request a room above the third or fourth floor, because of the noise and vibration.

Grocery store across the street offered egg sandwiches and a cuppa joe for a few dollars, as well as microwavable nationally-branded soups and noodle bowls. Lots of street food carts in the area as well. Some good lunch and dinner restaurants nearby, which we found by carefully reading reviews posted to social media apps and websites.

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.

A Train Runs Through It . . .

Great location, clean comfortable room, but the rooms that you book through [...] that are on the lower floors (and more affordable) are directly over the subway. So it sounds like a train is coming through your room. About every 20 minutes or so. Desk staff was wonderful - good humored, apologetic. They comped us for breakfasts at the restaurant next door, offered to move us up a floor though we would still hear the train. Just be sure to book a higher floor or call the hotel and ask them in advance for a room without the subway running under it.Otherwise the hotel was great, very clean, decent room, parking next door, plenty of dining choices nearby, great location for Times Square and transportation.

Great location -- Bad Room

The location is great -- right off Times Square. The room that we had was adjacent to the linen closet and all night long the staff was banging around in the room so it was hard to get a good night's sleep. Also, the pillows sucked -- it was like sleeping on a towel instead of a pillow -- far below the standards to which I would hold a Hilton establishment.

Good location close to every thing.

On arrival hotel computer system was down and initially we were allocated x2 rooms already occupied' 3rd allocation was to a smoking room that had to be changed the next day to non smoking as per booking. Reception staff not good under pressure. That said most staff friendly / helpful, very good location and I would stay there again. Alan Payne.

The good and the bad

The staff at the hotel were exceptional. However, I encountered a problem with the bathroom lights. The lights were on motion sensors and kept going out despite movement. If you were in the shower, they went out. If you were at the sink or toilet they went out. Light switch was outside the bathroom and to turn lights back on you had to open bathroom door. Management was aware but could do nothing to fix these lights. Very inconvenient.
