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.

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.

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 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!

Perfect location and value

The location is centrally located in Times Square with the subway on the same block. We had a great view of the Empire State Building. The entrance is plain and easy to miss but the hotel is great. Beds and rooms very comfy and clean. There are plenty of coffee shops and bakeries within a couple blocks. The Brooklyn Diner is very close and has great food. I have stayed here quite a few times and have always been very pleased.

The Bryant Park Grill is only a couple blocks away and has good food and a really cool atmosphere. You will think you are in Paris in a park.
