“Nice but small hotel”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Stayed at the Hampton Inn Manhattan/United Nations for one night. The hotel is brand new (2 months old). The reception area is quite small unsure how they would handle an influx of people. The front desk staff were very friendly and professional. Breakfast if free but the small breakfast area fills up fast (get in there before 10 am), the food is basic but good. Our room was on the 20th floor, quite small - sleeping quarters approx 196 sq feet. The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet. The bathroom was a good size with a shower (no tub), basin and toilet. The gym and business center were in the basement and set up quite nice. Found the hotel to be pricey, but then again probably the same price as other Manhattan hotels.

Spent three nights May 3-May 6. This new hotel is very clean with a wonderful staff. Everyone was so helpful from the front desk especially Felix to the breakfast room staff. This made our stay so enjoyable. The location was so close to Grand Central Station.
We will be back.

Room Tip: Higher floors are quiet, also king room is small. The double room is larger.

The room was wonderful. You could still smell that awesome new-construction smell. Great location and a great price. If you're staying in the mid-town area of NYC, this is a great option for you. The bathroom was spotless, the bed was great and the towels were brand new and comfortable.

Excellent hotel. It is convenient located with easy access to public transportation and the FDR drive. The rooms are decently sized for NYC rooms. The breakfast selection was good and changed on a daily basis with great variety and the hotel staff were very courtesous.

The staff couldn't do enough for us. Everyone went above and beyond. The hotel is new and a great option if you want to be on the east side and near Grand Central Station or near the United Nations. I stay in Manhattan often and am used to the small room size, but I actually had room to break out the ironing board and move around comfortably (King Room).

Hotel is satisfactory overall. As others have posted, rooms are extremely small. I stayed in a balcony room with king size bed. The balcony did make you feel like you had a little more room so that was good. The rooms are like new and very, very clean. Front desk staff was helpful with info about the area. Quality of free breakfast is not good but there is a Starbucks right around the corner and also COSI. Excellent location -- you can see Grand Central while standing in front of the hotel as it's just 2 blocks down the street.

I booked this hotel with my Hilton Honors points and it was well worth it. The location was great and the staff was very friendly. We arrived at the hotel at 10:30am and they had a room ready for us, I was was very impressed. The room that we had was very big, maybe because it was a handicap room (that was the only option I had when using my HH points). I had a great stay! The only thing that I didn't liked was the breakfast area was so small. It looked that the hotel was full and it was very hard to get food and find a table. I will definately recommend this hotel.
