“Ideal Location and Helpful Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

After a horrible Super Shuttle ride from JFK that took nearly four hours in average traffic (partly due to the driver's attempt to deliver us to a different Double Tree) my sister and I were grateful to be welcomed by the Doubletree's very friendly doormen and efficient front desk staff. I had stayed at this Time Square Doubletree with my husband and son a few years ago and thouroughly enjoyed the convenience and excitement of the location.

This being my sister's first visit to New York City, I thought that it would be an ideal hotel for seeing the City highlights, and we paid the extra for a view of Times Square. After checking our bags with the bellman, we headed down the street to find a Wednesday matinee offering rush tickets. Thanks to the Doubletree's excellent location in the Theater District, we secured tickets to "Matilda" within minutes, and had time to scout out additional shows within a few blocks.

Upon return to the Doubletree, we met Daniel who gave us our keys and then took the time to talk about all that New York has to offer. He suggested ways to maximize our enjoyment of the Big City, provided instructions on how to get to the pier for our upcoming cruise, and gave advice about the best shows to see. It was all good information, and talking with Daniel was a treat. Plus, we got warm chocolate chip cookies. How could we not love the Doubletree Times Square?

Room Tip: If the cost is not prohibitive, the higher floor rooms offering a view of Times Square add a lot to...

Booked this because it was in the middle of the action in Times Square and considering this the rooms were nice and quiet, however, we looked over the roof of an adjacent building. The room was advertised as having a kitchenette - there was a frig and microwave, a coffee maker and a sink but strangely enough no cutlery and no crockery. The coffee maker had paper cups provided- not pleasant and a little tacky! Wouldn't rush to stay here again.

Conveniently located, although very dark. However they debited $300 from my cash card, without telling me, as a security, which left me short of some spending money. Surprisingly for NYC, the manager was useless. I'm back home, still waiting for my money!

Room Tip: Sofa in suites was awful

Located directly across the street from TCKTS, this is an outstanding location for theatre goers. The hotel has recently been refurbished and is a delightful facility. The suite rooms consist of updated living room and bedroom along with a very modern double sinked bathroom. We travel to NYC at least yearly to see as many plays as we can in 3-4 days and usually stay in Hilton properties. This is our first time staying at this particular hotel but it will not be the last.

Room Tip: We liked room 3308 a lot. Two queen beds, microwave, safe, 3 sinks and frig.

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.

Room Tip: Request a higher floor if at all possible simply for the great views of the city

My family I stayed at the Double Tree Times Square. The rooms were satisfactory, they were clean, the bathroom was well kept and large and the beds were comfortable. The restaurant, "Ginger's" was adequate. We purchased our Broadway show tickets from Brandon the Concierge, and my family and I were very unhappy. We bought tickets for 3 different shows, seating was not what we were told it would be as well as being overcharged with a brokers fee which was not told to us upon purchase of the tickets. Brandon had promised us that we would all sit together but we didn't and the children were unable to see the shows. We also took his suggestions for restaurants for dinner reservations which were over priced. He was also quite agressive with this which we did not like nor appreciate. New York is a great city and I would reccomend anyone visiting there BUT I would not reccommend working with Brandon the Concierge.

I had a great experience at this hotel last week. The location was excellent, close to public transport, bars and restaurants, Broadway, and Central Park was an easy walk. The room was large, with a separate lounge and bedroom. Things I liked: coffee maker in room, café in lobby for quick breakfast stuff, ice machines, excellent bar. Things I didn't like: nothing
