Just returned from a girl's weekend in NY city. It was the first time visiting for all of us. This hotel is in an ideal location. It's close to everything. Although it's right at Times Square the lobby is on the 15th floor with rooms above so noise is not an issue. Apparently the hotel was recently renovated. The rooms were very spacious, modern and clean. Couldn't ask for better. The hotel staff were a wealth of information and very friendly, especially the guys downstairs at the door. Check out is at noon. We had an evening flight so they looked after our luggage and arraged our car back to the airport so we could enjoy one full last day. Pax, directly across the street was a great option for a fast meal.Delicious breakfast for $5 but also a great option for other meals. Many healthy choices as well. Chevys, also across the street was the best Mexican food I've had (outside of Mexico). Their frozen margharitas (can be bought by the pitcher) are worth the visit alone. The subway system is easy to master. Once you have a pass you can easily reload it. We always travelled together so we got one card and passed it back for the next person to use. When in doubt ask for directions. People were very friendly. Be sure and take in the theatre. We booked our tickets ahead of time to be sure to get a good seat but you can purchase "day of" tickets and may luck out. The Cake Boss Cafe is on the next corner. Treat yourself. It's worth it! A few highlights for me were the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, Brooklyn Bridge, the UN, Grand Central Station (celebrating it's 100th this year) shopping of course and my main reason for going "The Jersey Boys". I wasn't disappointed. We were only there for four days so we didn't see everything but we'll definitely be back and definitely stay at the Times Square Hilton again!
