This is a typical hotel in the city - smaller than average rooms, narrow hallways and small elevators. The location is great, and the staff was great. I just find it shocking that full service Hilton hotels have that horrible Herb N'Kitchen as the only option for food. I ended up ordering in, because the food at the Herb N'Kitchen...

I travel to NYC very infrequently and consider it somewhat intimidating. Last week I arrived at the Hilton Manhattan East only to find out that my work partner failed to make a reservation for me. I was very concerned having just flown into town and knowing little about big, scary NYC. However the Hilton employee at the desk, Cynthia, was...

We met friends in NYC for a weekend of Broadway shows and sightseeing. Very convenient location, especially since we arrived at Grand Central Station by train from Connecticut. Easy walk to Broadway and subway connections to uptown and mid-town. Easy walk to Rockefeller Center, etc. Hotel room rate was great, but everything else at hotel was a little overpriced, especially...

First of all, upon arrival we walked into a closet sized room where the bed is offset from the tv. If you are laying on the bathroom side of the bed, expect to have your tv viewing partially obstructed. First order of business after arriving was using the bathroom. Quickly found out that the toilet was not functional, but that...

This is an older structure that has undergone some rehab work. I definitely agree that your experience depends on which room you get. Some are extremely tiny, while just next door the room can have a very large bathroom and windows on 3 sides (corner room). They do have issues with the cable/tv system (which occurs in many older hotels...

The hotel is in a quieter area and is conveniently located near grand central station.

The lobby/ seating areas are really useful especially to catch up using the free wifi! We...

On the plus side, this pretty central location (between Grand Central and the UN) is quiet by NY standards. The staff were efficient and pretty friendly, the lobby is well thought out for business visitors with places to sit and work. On the downside (in my case at least) the room was very small with essentially a view of a...

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
