The DoubleTree Metropolitan was an easy 30 minute taxi/cab trip from JFK (recommended). The 51st E subway station was also just outside if you are adventurous enough to catch the train from the airport. Upon check-in hotel was clean and comfortable. We even received a cookie upon checking in, and free cookies were handed out in the early morning. This... More

Our experience was just wonderful from start to finish. The ease of booking and check-in were fantastic. The staff was helpful, courteous, & really friendly. We were so pleased to find our room so spacious & pristine. The morning breakfast was varied & well prepared, a great start to the day. We will certainly be returning!

I have stayed at this hotel many many times. It is my preferred hotel in New York. It's right next to the subway and a few small cafes for breakfast or a fast lunch. The breakfast at the hotel is superior too, a great buffet. As far as the hotel staff - they are the BEST! I am actually going... More

Room 747, cramped, A/C adjustments did not work and unit was loud, room stayed at 75 degrees all July evening... bathroom wallpaper was stained with what looked like dripped coffee or hot chocolate – gross. Called front desk, transferred to I think maintenance but the phone rang and rang, no one picked up at 10 PM

If you are not a preferred hilton member, you will have to pay for Wifi. I found the room clean and sufficient for the purpose of the stay, if I were to vacation there, I would find a place with a refrigerator or more space. Since it is a small room and no refrigerator. But it is centrally located and... More

After reading the reviews and based on the star rating I expected clean and comfortable but nothing elegant. Unfortunately, we didn't get either of those things. The first room we were in the floor was wet and the air conditioner did not work at all. After complaining we were moved to another room in which the air did work but... More
