We stayed at the Hilton New York for 4 nights in mid-May on HiltonHonors award points. As Hilton Gold members, we received coupons for a beverage and a pastry at the lobby Starbucks each day (though NYC is one place where we could easily have found an inexpensive and much better breakfast) and got free internet access as our "MyWay" benefit; the internet worked fine, though the connection was slow.
Our 2 double bed room on the 36th floor was of reasonable size, clean, and well maintained except for peeling ceiling paint in the bathroom and a scruffy, banged up safe in the closet. A small, but nice touch was having 2 luggage racks. The mattresses were the low point (pun intended). We only needed 1 bed, but tried both. They were ok, but both sagged considerably on the night stand side. Another annoyance was that there was only the center night stand. I did manage to pull a little side table somewhat near to my side of the bed to hold my glasses, etc. at night. Our north-facing room had a tiny view of Central Park and an even tinier view of the Hudson River, but it was nice to see more than just tall buildings. The noise level from both inside and outside was remarkably low.
The staff were courteous, though with the exception of the housekeeping staff and the person who checked us out, I wouldn't characterize them as friendly. We never waited long for help. The Hilton Club hucksters at 2 booths in the lobby were aggressive and annoying--they are best avoided.
Finally, the best thing about the Hilton New York is its location, It's an easy walk to Central Park, Lincoln Center, the Empire State Building, and much more. It's also of course near Times Square, but far enough away (a plus in my book). Subway stations and bus stops are nearby. Though the hotel is large and impersonal, this really mattered little to us as our goal was to enjoy the city--the Hilton's location made it the perfect home base.
