Just returned from New York - a 9 day stay at the Millenium Hilton in the Finanicial District of NYC. Hotel was perfect. Our room, on 33rd floor, was spacious, modern & clean with a great view over Ground Zero and the location was a perfect base for getting around New York.

We didn't eat in the hotel, but food in local Deli's was fresh, plentiful and great value.

We loved the City - exciting & well organised, and the subway was efficient & cheap. There was loads to see & do, we found it safe to walk around day and night (perhaps because it was absolutely swarming with police).

In any case, if we are ever lucky enough to go back, we would definitely stay at this hotel again.

We stayed here during 22 - 29 November.
We arrived around 2.30pm and were checked in and taken to our room. We were on the 39th floor overlooking Ground Zero.

This was our first time to New York and we loved our stay here. The room was spacious with a huge 42” plasma screen (not that we had much time to watch it).
The bathroom was very clean and fresh towel everyday.

We stopped B+B and the concierge was very helpful and friendly. We never encountered any unfriendly staff during our stay.

The Buffet was hot and cold choices, for example bacon, eggs, toast, bagels, fruit etc.

We thought the hotel was ideally situated, the subway right outside the hotel. Another bonus this hotel was great to get away from all the hustle and bustle to grab some peace and quiet.

Loved New York, loved our stay in the Millenium Hilton. Would definitely visit again.

Just back from 8 days at this hotel . The staff were excellent as were the rooms . The concierge was very helpful and never phased by our requests . We were a party of twelve and we all felt that this hotel was excellent. Room service was prompt, taxis readily available . Plenty of places to walk to . I have stayed in other hotels but this was my fourth visit and I was gald to see that since 9/11 it had lost none of its charm on reopening

Stayed on Dec 26th for 3 nights, they checked us in early which was a bonus. Booked the city view room directly overlooking Ground Zero, for $150 per night from the Hilton website.

Room was clean and a good size, especially for NY hotels. 42" plasma tv screen was great and the "Hilton Heavenly Bed" is the most comfortable at any hotel I have stayed at.

Very quiet room and ideal for getting away from the busy streets further uptown. Century 21 is right next door for those who are looking for shopping bargains.

We had breakfast once at the restaurant, had good choice in the hot and cold buffet, which cost $16 each. However, on the other days we went to the numerous cheap delis and cafes around the hotel, you'll never be short of choice.

The tube stops are right on the doorstep, and is only a 10-15 min metro ride to Times Square, very convenient, and only costs $2 for a single trip. Taxi from airport is $45 flat fee (metered in other direction), but suggest you get the metro from/to Howard's Beach ($2) and the AirTran ($5), takes about about 40 mins.

Would agree with some of the other reviews that not all the staff are friendly, however would highly recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

stayed at the Millenium Hilton from 18 Dec to 23 Dec, had a fantastic time staying there and had no problems checking in.

The room was small but clean, the bathroom had everything you needed and the plasma TV was a bonus. It was great to use the pool every morning and the gym is more than adequate. We didn't eat at the hotel during our stay as we thought it was a little expensive but with the Stage Door Deli around the corner and plenty of small restaurants in the vicinity, especially Yori's Japanese on Fulton Street, we didn't see the point of paying out in the hotel.

If you want to stay in NYC but want to be able to return to a quieter area away from the crowds the Millenium Hilton would be perfect for you.

the only complaints we'd have would be the staff seem a little cold and disinterested when enquiries were made and we were charged for using the mini bar when we hadn't, they quickly reimbursed us the over payment on check out though.

all in all our stay in NYC was near perfect and the Millenium Hilton was a big part of it!

Room not ready upon arrival even though it was after check-in time. We were told that there were 5 pages of guests waiting for their room as well. Front desk said that they would call us when our room was ready...they never did.
Also, this hotel is AAA rated 4 diamond and yet you can only get heat or air conditioning depending on the time of year. Granted, we were there in December but a very warm stay and we were uncomfortable the entire time. Opening the window helped slightly. For this rating, you should have all the comforts of home...a choice of heat or air!
Room service breakfast was delivered fast and hot but it appeared to annoy servers if you didn't leave an extra gratuity almost to the point of rudeness. That's unacceptable!
Would we return to this hotel?
A definite NO!

Hi all

Just returned from the Millenium from Sunday 19th - Wednesday 22nd December. Stayed in room 4206 overlooking ground zero.

The hotel was amazing and the room was first class we paid extra for the city view and it was well worth it.

The bed was so comfortable, the plasma tv was great, the bathroom was spotless. There was a hairdryer in the bathroom. With Sham

We never ate at the hotel, but shopped at Century 21 right next door!

Bought a Metro Subway card which we used all the time, it was nice to come back to the hotel at night away from all the hussle of the city.

We asked the conceige about a transfer back to JFK we said it would cost $72 one way! so we used the underground from fulton street to howard beach and then got the air train, $5 each for the air train, so if we want to save some $$$ use the underground back to JFK.

We ate at Buba Gump (from the film Forest Gump), Hard Rock Cafe & Planet Hollywood.

We also seen the Knicks at Madisson Square Garden you can book online from ticketmaster.

We loved our time in New York, it also snowed on Sunday night which made our trip even more special.

Thank you Hilton for making our visit so special. We will return.
