“Very Pleased With This Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

I was very pleased with this hotel. I did not have high expectations, based on some previous reviews. However, I was pleasantly surprised. This is an older hotel,but, in my opinion it was well maintained. The rooms were clean and comfortable and relatively large for NYC standards. The bed was very comfortable. The staff was excellent. They were friendly and helpful. This location is excellent. Close to all of the tourist sites and business areas. I will stay here without any hesitation.

Great location but this hotel has the standards of a cheap motel. Lights in the room were broken and not fixed by room service. Bathrooms from the dark ages. No coffee / tea makers or mini-bar in the room. No staff in the gym (which was average). Room service menu was limited and the food quality was poor. The use of leaving voicemail at services (eg laundry) is frustrating. One just receives the impression that the hotel is short of staff.

Stayed here for 3 nights before checking out and moving to another hotel! On arrival we were greeted by a rude member of staff who rushed to check us in and send us on our way. We were sent to a standard room despite having booked an executive room - after having traveled for 16 hours my patience was wearing thin. After returning to reception we were moved to another room but told the room we had booked was not available that night - not pleased! The room was very small and dark, the bath was tiny and i could have done a better job cleaning the room myself. On waking we were greeted by the loud noise of the housekeeping staff which continued for 3 hours every morning as they ran up and down the corridors shouting at each other. We did not try any of the food at the hotel. Despite being a Hilton Honours member we did not receive free WIFI despite asking several times - since returning home we are aware that WIFI was included in our package but they are incredibly unhelpful! If you try to contact the concierge from the room, they NEVER answer the phone! On visiting the concierge downstairs to find out how long it would take to get to a restaurant by taxi we were told to take a subway!! We did point out that we didn't want to take the subway but she was adamant that i should and made sure i felt stuck up and spoilt - i was on holiday!! If the hotel was not in such a great location we would have left after the first night... instead we left after the third! The gym is the best feature of this hotel and has a great view. This Hilton hotel is not of the same calibre as any other Hilton hotel i have stayed in.

Fantastic hotel, truly capturing the essence of Manhattan! We stayed for 10 nights in a deluxe queen sized bedroom, and could not have wished for a better hotel in which to enjoy our first trip to New York.
Bedrooms were lovely, airy, modern and spacious. The bed was the best I have ever slept in as far as hotels go. Our room was kept spotlessly clean throughout our stay, and had all the amenities you could wish for. Also had a lovely bathroom, offering bath and shower, and had complimentary Crabtree& evelyn toiletries replenished on a daily basis. Lovely touch for pampering yourself after a hectic day sightseeing and shopping
Eating in the hotel was ridiculously expensive, particularly for what you got to eat; cafes and restaurants on the hotel's doorstep offer far better value for money in terms of quality and
ambience, which to me is the whole point of coming to the Big Apple, for the atmosphere and variety of cafes, restaurants & bars on every street corner.
Location was exceptional, literally 2 minutes walk from 5th Avenue, Museum of Modern Art, Rockefeller Centre, Radio City Hall, and 5 minutes walk from Central Park.
Would highly recommend this hotel, and would certainly stay here again.

Good Tip: don't book directly through Hilton website; we booked through lastminute.com and got our 10 nights £1000 cheaper than booking direct.

Very nice hotel, very busy but staff seems to keep up with all requests. Very clean rooms and great location. We were there to visit our daughter who was playing Carnegie Hall. There were taxi's on every corner, very convenient. Several good eating placing within walking distance of the hotel. The hotel has many amenities and sundries in the event you forgot something. Nice restaurant, especially for breakfast.

Room Tip: Close to businesses, art museums, taxi at every corner. Downtown and close to nice restaurants as w...

This hotel is big, noisy and in need of a major facelift. The staff are extremely friendly though, and the location is great. We booked as part of a Hilton Vacation Club promotion, what a mistake!!! Our appointment was for 1:30pm and the sales person didn't show up until 2:30. He was relentless, and wouldn't let us go, until finally at 4 pm, I said I'd had enough!! What a waste of a beautiful afternoon in New York.
We had pre-booked a king room 2 months before, but upon our arrival were told that all the king rooms were gone. I am a honors gold member, and asked for a room with executive lounge access, but there were none left. So beware, if you are gold, but do not have an executive room booked, you are not allowed in the lounge. What's the point of having a gold card then?
The rooms are old, dated and tired, but are clean. The lobby is like Grand Central!!! So many people. We stayed for 2 nights, then moved to the Grand Hyatt. It is a lovely hotel, that has had a complete facelift. Much nicer.
The New York Hilton is OK, with a great location, but there are much better hotels in Manhattan.
