We just finished 4 days in Manhattan with the family and I just can say that this a great option. Closed to the center, good prices and exceptional professionals. I have to make special remarks from Robert Ibanez and Jose Ramirez. These 2 professionals among others make Hilton a great choice for business and personal trips.

Great stay nice room, no bed bugs! Close to broadway and everything else. Nice prices, we parked car for $20 a day and took subway. Best site to see was Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty. Went to see wicked and it was marvelous.

Had a few lovely stays at this hotel. The rooms are a great size for a New York hotel. And all decorated very well. The showers are great and the beds really comfy. Location is first rate, far enough from the madding crowd to be quiet, but minutes walk to the hustle of times sq. the thing that makes this... More

This is my preferred hotel when I travel to NYC for business. As a Hilton Honors VIP I like the benefits the hotel provides. The staff are always very attentive, especially the morning restaurant staff, Pablo and Balal. The Hotel is an older one so the rooms sometimes are a bit small but it can also encourage you to get...

This was my first stay at the Hilton Manhattan East in NYC. As a Hilton Honors Gold member, I have stayed in several Hilton hotels, and my stay here was one of the best I have experienced.

My boyfriend and I had plans with friends and needed a convenient hotel for the night. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

The Hilton in East Manhattan was a life saver.

This staff and this property make one's stay very comfortable.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
