“Terrific location, adequate in all other ways”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2009

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.

We stayed in a standard two-double bed room for Memorial Day weekend. The room was on the larger size of those we've stayed in in NYC before, which was nice. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom was tiny. Overall, the room was clean. OK, so there's the good stuff.

Only two sets of towels were provided, and it took forever to get extras. Despite having 4 sets hung up on the morning of day 2, when we returned in the afternoon - two sets of towels again. Another wait for additional linen.

Check-in was a nightmare. The line for "non- HHonors" was 8 people long, and they kept letting the HHonors people have priority to ALL of the registration agents. After 40 minutes on line, we finally made it to the front - only to be told (at 2:30PM) that the room wasn't ready and to come back and stand in line AGAIN any time after 3PM. Same MO at 3PM - waiting for all the HHonors guests to get first dibs at all the registration folks. Needless to say, we joined HHonors program - think it's a plot??

Overall, we guess we can get past the check-in. We might consider staying here again. The location is great.

I have been here before and once again the room was great, quiet. I asked for a quiet room and non-connecting and got an end room.

Just came back from New York with my girlfriend and we stayed at the Hilton. The place was very nice and the rooms were very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The bed was super comfortable. The only thing I found that sucked was that nothing was really included. We asked for a water bottle in our room and they wanted $5.50 for it, you might as well go across the street to the Pharmacy and get one for $1.00. The internet is not free either but you can usually catch a wireless signal from the building across the street. The bag storage is not free either, it is roughly $3.50 per bag. I'm not sure if it is like that everywhere in New York but some places, bag storage is included in the price of the room.

The location is excellent, however. you are just a few blocks from central park and just 10-15 minute walk from Times Square. You are really close to all the flagship stores on fifth avenue, so if you're going with a women, you might want to hold on to the credit cards. Also, very close is the Rockefeller center which you can pay to go up and see the view.

Stayed at this hotel in mid-May for a weekend visit to Manhattan. This was our first visit and we were looking for a hotel near Broadway and other tourist attractions. The location was perfect - took the subway from Penn Station and there is a stop about a block from the hotel.

Room seemed recently renovated (king deluxe suite). Bed was comfortable and the room had a wide-screen TV and a couch. Bathroom had a full-size shower but the sink and toilet area reminded me of cruise-ship bathrooms.

I stay at Hilton brand hotels often on business and found this property to be consistent with the others.

Only two negatives:
1. Staff selling timeshares were too aggressive even by NYC standards. They should not be allowed to shout out at guests as they walk by.

2. $3.50 per bag charge to store baggage before or after checkout.

We needed a hotel close to Radio City for the Leonard Cohen concert so I chose the Hilton for its location. The hotel is large and busy, but our floor (36) was quiet and from the window we could see a small slice of Central Park. The room was clean and attractively decorated. The bathroom, small, but was clean and the marble sparkled. There was a small patch of peeling ceiling in the bathtub/shower from the humidity. The staff we encountered were friendly. Housekeeping greeted us whenever we passed them in the hallway. The concierge helped us with a reservation at a nearby restaurant(IL Gattopardo) which we both enjoyed. Dinner was $118 for two with wine and dessert. Check in and out was quick and pleasant. We were only in the city for the show so this hotel was perfect for being close to the venue and the nearby dinning saved us time.
