Great Location

Our overall experience at this hotel was average. However, one thing we absolutely loved was the location. It is within walking distance to Times Square and many other places such as Broadway theaters, Rockefeller Center, Bryant Park, Empire State Building, and more and only a few minutes away if you take a cab to Central Park, Chelsea, Soho, the financial district, Chinatown and Little Italy. The staff service was average except for the representative who did our check-in. He was extremely courteous and professional.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Night in the town is an excellent tour. Tour begins at 6pm and ends around 10:30 pm. They take you around the city at night and then to the ferry to go around the statue of Liberty including a champagne toast. Also, you get to go inside Chelsea Market, Highland Park and you have dinner at Little Italy and tickets to go up to the Rockefeller Tower. Great value tour!

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.
