The sleek, modern facade of this 44-story building makes it a notable Times Square attraction, and many of its 460 rooms look out over vibrant Times Square, the New York City skyline and the Hudson River. Visit Pinnacle Bar in the lobby for coffee, cocktails and other delectable beverages, and enjoy innovative, Zagat-rated fare at Restaurant Above, which overlooks the iconic digital screens and billboards below. Hilton Hotels & Resorts have been wowing guests since 1919, and the Hilton Times Square houses 24-hour business and fitness centers, plus modern event spaces and a freshly revitalized lobby.

The best over night stay... ever

Me and my partner are in our early 30's and we decided to choose this hotel for its location. Everything about the hotel was perfect. Would book this place again for sure. Loved it.

Great Stay in Manhattan

I typically stay at more expensive hotels in the city but found this cheaper alternative to be very satisfying. Location was good, although I am not a fan of being so close to times square, I prefer a quieter locale. That aside, there was nothing to complain about, friendly and helpful staff, clean room, quite satisfied.

Go to Century 21 department stores, they have great designer brands for significantly lower prices than retailers.

Great place for a quick visit!

They let us check in early and our room was comfy and clean...and the view was breathtaking. We left the curtains open all night to enjoy the color changing lights! Great location, convenient to shows and restaurants. Our room was near the elevator but we were not bothered by the noise of guests coming and going.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

The Super Shuttle from Laguardia to the Hotel was horrible. We waited 45 minutes for a shared van and still picked up several more passengers until the van was filled to capacity. Then it took over an hour and a half to get to the Hilton Times Square....not worth the savings! Take a car or cab! The lovely concierge desk found us a car in 2 minutes for the ride back to the airport!

Short Stay.....

On arrival found that one of the exits was under renovation but this didn't impact just caused inconvience as the access to the hotel was the reason we booked it.. Have stayed in sister hotels and have found them that little bit better by way of hotel facilities... e.g breakfast others have an area in reception where you could buy pastries/fruit e.g croissants, bannana's but not this one breakfast inhouse and room service very expensive.. Apart from that our room keys seemed to cause probs leading to numerous trips up and down to reception but all were quickly resolved.

A Pleasant Oasis

Finding an affordable hotel room in NYC that still delivers a quality experience has become increasingly challenging. The Times Square Hilton is a pleasant exception in that it is located in an ideal location and, given its unique layout, nearly every room provides a fine view and is far enough away from the noise of the city that you would swear you were in the country. The rooms are spacious & clean and the amenities are just about on par with hotels costing far more. Totally recommend it as a pleasant oasis to escape the stresses of the city.
