Good Value for Your Money

I've seen my share of Hilton and Marriott hotels and this one provides a good value for your money. Located a quick walk from Grand Central, the Hilton Manhattan East is very centrally located and easily accessible. There are numerous restaurants and bars nearby, however you are a little off the path enough to be outside of the hustle and bustle of mid-town. The price was reasonable, and although the hotel is "historical" (read - a little on the older end), you have a decent sized and comfortable room. The staff was fantastic from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. They held our bags after check-out so that we could enjoy the city, hailed cabs for us, and were very friendly. Overall, a good place to stay for your money.

fun away from home

I just love this hotel. First time for everything... the it's my man birthday and I wanted to treat him to something nice away from our home and stumble right into this great deal hotel ...staff was very kind and pleasant... the only con I had was my room wasn't ready by check-in it was ready an hour later but it was ok because they were so nice and sincere that they gave us a late check out. My room was the one king balcony room it was very spacious bed was ridiculously comfortable big screen tv mirrors and windows every and my balcony view was wonderful.....my partner just loved everythingg... location was awesome 4 blocks down from Grand Central 42nd st.

Family trip

The hotel was nice, the room was a bit too small and the view we got was just brick walls. The staff was great.

Great Value for location

Hotel is great. The breakfast was hosted in the basement due to renovation, but was a great place to stay. Save $20 and an hour by staying on the East side when flying into .

Would stay there again

Close to Grand Central Station. A few minute ride on subway to Times Square. Room was reasonable for New York and very quiet, comfortable and clean. Was not happy with the breakfast buffet at a price of 50+ for two. Average selection for a buffet. Not worth it unless you are a large eater and don't mind cold eggs. Learned our lesson and ate elsewhere the rest of the trip. Other than that, was great and would go back.
