In view of some of the negative comments, we were looking forward, with trepidation, to our stay at the Hilton. We took our two ten-year old grandchildren, who are extremely well-traveled, as part of a AAA special Christmas tour and were very pleasantly surprised. Even the grandchildren approved and they are used to five star hotels! It had been at least 25 years since we had stayed at the Hilton but remembered the "old days" when it was new and one of the glitziest. We found the rooms clean and well decorated, the beds are redone with the wonderfully deep mattresses, feather duvets, and lots of pillows, and we had a great view from the 34th floor. Our bathroom was very large with a handheld shower and lots of thick towels (maybe because it was a handicap room). Although not requested, I must admit it was welcome because of the extra space usually involved in the bathroom areas. We ate a breakfast and lunch at the Marketplace and found it to be reasonable with pleasant food. The staff was accommodating but the Concierge sent us around the corner for lunch to a new restaurant with a menu featuring only four entrees and two salads and boasting a mighty price, knowing we had two children with us. She half-heartedly tried to get us a reservation at Tavern on the Green, and was non-committal when I said I had heard that the Tavern had gone down hill and was now barely more than a tourist trap. Our son had been in NY the week before and given us this info. Because of the wonderful location: Radio City across the street, MOMA in the next block, four blocks to Central Park, six blocks to Rockefeller Center, and a block off Fifth, you could hardly get a better hotel for walking everywhere. We discovered Rosie O'Grady's Restaurant/Pub behind the hotel on Seventh Ave. and enjoyed the great food and very fair prices, and as previously mentioned, Starbucks is across from the front door. When you consider we spent $199. per person for two nights at the hotel, four seats at the Rockettes Christmas Show, and a 2 1/2 hour Grayline tour of the Christmas Lights, it was the very best deal in town!
