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.

Hotel is in walking distance to any broadway show. View of times square and the empire state building from hotel room window was great. Try to be on the upper floors for the best view (we were on 40th floor)

Convenient Location! Modern Upgrades!

This hotel felt like a quiet oasis in heart of Time Square. The modern conveniences like wireless internet and the business centre was a plus. The room was tidy and the hotel employees were always helpful and curious.

Awesome Girls Weekend!

I loved this hotel and have already recommended it to friends. It is a great location, and fairly well priced (considering where we were at - Times Square). The staff was so friendly and we always felt safe. I don't think we came home with bed bugs - that would make it perfect!

Great location for shows and sightseeing

We went to 3 Broadway shows and took the City Sights hop on hop off tour!! It was all right there!! Our room was bigger that a lot of NY hotel rooms and it was your typical Hilton room. It wasn't plush, but way better than average. The staff was very congenial and helpful. The ground floor was a little strange, but the lobby was nice.It was close to all, hard to figure out where to eat, as the restaurant was the only thing that wasn't very appealing!

nice facility

Staff very friendly and helpful. Concierge was great! Did not like being solicited by honor's program person every time we went to the elevator. Did not feel the CC level was secure. This is the only place where one could print a boarding pass.

Very friendly and helpful

It's in a great location and the staff was very helpful. I checked in way early and they called me the minute they had an open room. The only thing I didnt like about the hotel was the fact that by the elevators to get to the street there is a condo selling booth. While listening to the speil you get a free drink in the bar the saleman who was there was kind of a jerk and condecending when you tell him you are not interested plus the fact he solicits as you get on/off the elevator is irritating. That is my only complaint so all in all a great experience.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

The subway system is really easy to navigate and extremely close to the hotel. It was so much easier to deal with if it was too far away to walk then dealing with cabs.
