“Great Views, Rooms and Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

This is a great hotel for Manhattan. It is recently renovated so rooms are clean and comfortable. They are good size with plenty of room for desk, chairs, large flat screen TV, and king bed. I requested a high floor and from my room on 44 I had open views of The City including The Empire State Building, Freedom Tower and The Hudson River. Even lower floor have great views since the hotel rooms and lobby start on the 15th floor or so. The room was very quiet, which is unusual for NYC.

I also liked that the hotel had an entrance on 41st street so you can avoid the tourist zoo on 42nd. As a former NYC resident, Times Square is not the area I would usually stay, but rooms were tight this week and I am glad I tried this hotel. Most tourists will like the area as it is central with great subway access.

The staff was friendly and accommodating. I ordered room service one evening (I could not pull myself away from the view!). The food was expensive as you would expect in a hotel like this, but it arrived hot and fresh.

The only negative here was the lack of an executive lounge. Hilton seems to be limiting these more and more and I think it will hurt them. Similar flags (Marriott, Weston) almost always have them. They did offer coupons for free breakfast, but I missed it since I had other plans. Also, you need to take 2 elevators to get to the street level, since the lobby is not on the ground floor. however, they were never that busy so it was not really a problem.

I would definitely stay here again and am happy to recommend this hotel for a great stay in New York City.

Not sure about these reviews....are people paid to lie. Here is our true experience.
True: Recently renovated, big rooms, friendly service, decent fitness center, adequate bathroom. Metro (subway) is very close. Great location , nice furniture and bed.

What isn't being said: Thin walls...I could hear my neighbor sneeze. Street noise even from a high floor is easily heard. Finger nail clippings on rug, hairs on toilet and used coffee cup welcomed us to the room. New sinks are very high. Toilet is low but with high water level ...so expect a splash in your nether region.

It was ok, but we certainly did not feel pampered.

Our room was beautiful - modern, clean and with great views. The hotel is right in the thick of it, with metro station about a 5/10 minute work. Service was fantastic and exceeded expectations. My flight got cancelled and they allowed me to change dates and even gave me an early check in! I just wish I could've stayed longer. Will definitely go back!

Every time I go to NYC, I stay in a different hotel because I never leave totally satisfied... until now. I was hesitant to book here because I thought it would be super loud being on 42nd St., but I was pleasantly surprised. We got here four hours early and they allowed us to check in right away, which was awesome. We could not believe how big our room was, the biggest I've ever had in NY, that's for sure. It was tastefully decorated and the bathroom was spacious as well. We got a room on the 38th floor and could not hear a single sound from the street below. The view was great, we couldn't be happier. Well, maybe if the price was lower, lol.
Peter checked us in and had an amazing personality and treated us great, thanks Peter!

Room Tip: The higher, the quieter!

I am a Hilton Diamond member. I stayed at the Hilton Time Sq 234 W 42nd hotel and Peter Arons (Guest Serivce Agent) is the best Service Agent I have met at any hotel or resort. Peter was outgoing, fantastic personality, and had great ideas on hotel reservations. If you stay at the Hilton Times Sq, make sure you ask for Peter Arons.

Room Tip: Talk to Peter Arons :)
