Over the summer we enjoyed another great stay in NYC at the Doubletree Guest Suites Times Square (July 8-12) . This place still continues to be a great location -- subway right outside our door -- easy access to Times Square activities, restaurants, theaters. Room located on the top floor provided excellent view of the City. Overall check in/check out excellent -- staff friendly, polite and willing to help out whenever/wherever needed. Room clean, spacious for family of five. We were able to put our room requests in early with the staff and even though we are Hilton Honors Diamond Members, I don't think it made a difference in how we were treated -- everyone we spoke with received the same warm, generous hospitality. The safety of the hotel is amazing -- no one gets in or out without going through security on the ground floor. Even though the City continues to grow and update and there was some construction going on around outside the hotel, we were able to get where we needed to go. Shopping on Fifth Avenue, Yankees game, Grand Central Station, Lower Manhattan, Central Park, Upper West Side, Wicked, and many other things.The Hop On/Hop Off Pass was great and the subway is easy to navigate especially with the App for the Iphone now. At the recommendation of a good friend, enjoyed a great bar in Manhattan called 230 Fifth -- open outdoors all year long -- everyone should have at least one cocktail there.
