Nice and good location

My co-worker (another lady and myself) and I went to New York for the weekend. We requested two beds, but could only get a kingsize. We kept requesting a change, but did not get one. I feel like they should have been able to make that change. They didn't seem to make an attempt to change it.

HiltonTimesSquare-good but not exciting

Nice hotel. Nothing about it says "You have arrived", rather it is more functional [tired looking] than anything else. "Lobby" is on the 21st floor. People are very nice, but we were expecting more due to its name. I would say this is more not like a Hilton than others that I've stayed in.

A decent stay for the price

This Hilton is right smack dab in the middle of the Theater district, so it's a great location. You have to navigate two elevators to get to your room, which is not bad because it does take you away from the commotion on 42nd st. Apart from location, the rooms have the usual Hilton amenities. The minus points are the following - very slow Internet connection for the $14/ a day we had to shell out, very limited counter space in the bathroom for two people to keep their toiletry items, no mirror in room - only one in the bathroom, and small TV screen for the size of the room, also with limited cable access. If these things don't bother you, then you are good to go with a great 35th floor view and lots to do as soon as you step out of the hotel.

nice hotel, good location

The room was clean and the service very good. We had an awful trip on a shuttle from the airport. The Bellhop who took us up to our room the first night arranged for a town car for our return trip to the airport. It was cheaper, easier, and a lot more relaxing.

Time-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Ask about the subway and how to navigate it. Saves time and money. Cabs are great but know where you are going and how far away it is or they will take you the long way and it will cost you. We had a small map and let the cab driver know where were going.

Nice location

The location was great (right in the middle of Times Square), but our A/C did not work at times (overheating according to the engineer). The staff wasn't that helpful other than for checking in and checking out. Could never give us one answer for our inquiries, such as specifics for our room (complimentary breakfast and what not) we would get different answers depending on who answered.

Best thing is location, rest only ok

This Hilton is mediocre for a 4 star, full service hotel. The lobby is poorly designed (after you get to it from an elevator at street level), crowded, unattractive. The hotel bar is less appealing, right in the middle of the lobby and elevator area with zero ambiance. If you want to spend time at the hotel bar and restaurant, this one is not the one, but if you are just going to sleep and shower there, it's fine. We went to another hotel bar to meet friends instead. The staff are nice enough when you ask for something, but do not seem to have the 'make sure the customer is happy' attitude. Room service was ok, but badly set up; no plates or bowls and creamer in a drinking glass with no spout. The best thing about this place is the location to the Broadway shows and Times Square, which is as good as it gets. Overall, not up to Hilton quality for me.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Stay near the area you intend to spend most of your time in because the city can get jammed up for driving and that is a real problem for being on time to shows and dinners. There were several 'demonstrations' the weekend we were there and walking or the subway were the only options.
