“Great Stay!!!”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

The hotel staff was great, all those we came in contact with were extremely nice and helpful. Great location 2 blocks from Grand Central station so, there was no problem catching the train or a cab. The room was just as pictured on the site, a little on the small side but, its New York. The usual free breakfast I expect from Hampton, it would have been nice had there been a meat selection.
Hotel would also sit out some desert that tasted like a cross between cheesecake and banana pudding....mmm mmm good.

Dear BKW1,

Thank you for writing a reader response! The Marble Cheesecake was a hit, but our guests have loved the warm cookies that we place out now that the weather is a bit chillier. I'm sure we will have another, new, delicious treat by the time we see you next!

Sincerely,

We spent several nights in the Hampton Inn United Nations in September. It is in a good location if you like to stay in a quieter part of NYC.Saying this it is a short walk to Grand Central station. It is quite close to the UN and appears to have a large clientele of diplomatic types staying there. I guess because of this, the hotel is very quiet. It is a small hotel with few rooms per floor adding to security and quietness. It appears that most affordable hotels in NYC have quite small rooms and the Hampton is no exception. Having a small family in one of their rooms is quite a crowd. But being in NYC, a hotel room is not somewhere where you spend a lot of time. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and clean. The furniture is matched to the room , small. Air conditioning works well and was not noisy. Wifi was free and easy to use. We liked the included breakfast. The food provided was not brilliant but quite adequate. The quality of the fresh fruit though was high. Very sweet, juicy apples! I loved the coffee / tea / hot chocolate bar being open all hours and the little treats at the front desk. The staff we dealt with were very helpful and professional. In short, pretty good value for New York accommodation (but would be over priced in many other cities). Secure and clean due to the clientele. Great staff.

Hello Desktop_critic,

Thank you for taking the time to fill out a response for our hotel! It's great to hear that you enjoyed the little treats that we put out at the front desk; we spend more time than we probably should looking for new treats to put at the desk (spoiler alert: we will be greeting the cold season with hot apple cider!). Hopefully this message reaches you well, thank you again for taking the time to rate our hotel!

Sincerely,
Hampton Inn United Nations TEAM

This is a great hotel in NYC and was perferctly located for my needs!! The staff made me feel really welcome when I checked in. The room was clean and quiet with a small balcony and great view. The business center is located in the kitchen/dining area and easily accessible. I needed to sign and scan and the staff helped me out with this. This is a preferred hotel for me when staying in NYC!!

Stayed over a weekend in mid September 2013; excellent location close to the UN headquarters, close to Grand Central station, close to Time Square. Neat and clean, great parking arrangements, secure and quiet. Great value for the convenience of staying in Central Manhattan; will definitely go again.

Fantastic place for the get up and go visitor to NYC. Almost in the heart of everything, a walkable to everywhere else. Check out the map and you'll see! The hotel manager worked hard to accommodate my request for double beds instead of one king. They truly value their clients. It's not big, but cozy and appropriate. It's not a resort, it's a sleep and walk the city place.

My recent visit to this Hampton was for my birthday celebration weekend. We chose the hotel for the location and the pricing. Very reasonable price for NY and the staff was excellent. As a Hilton Honors member, they noticed it was my birthday and upgraded my room. Staff was excellent, room clean and quiet. The continental breakfast area was large and unique. Provided all the great breakfast items. Highly recommend this hotel if you stay near the United Nations in NY.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights recently. We were in NY for a couple of broadway shows and the Giants-Broncos game, and were looking for a reasonably priced Manhattan hotel. Based on the reviews on TA we picked this property, and could not have been happier with our stay.

It is conveniently located on E43rd street about a 3 min walk from Grand Central Station. We walked to Times Square in 20 mins. The staff were all excellent, especially the front counter staff who seemed genuinely happy and eager to offer assistance. They were personable and friendly every time we dealt with them.

The rooms are small but very comfortable and modern. The bed was excellent and we slept very well. The bathroom shower was spacious and the room exceptionally clean and quiet. No complaints there whatsoever. The breakfast is standard Hampton fare, which is a good thing. My only real complaint is with other guests who seem to think it is beneath them to clear their tables after eating, like it is the job of the next person. The eating area is small but we never had trouble finding a table.

I will definitely stay here again when we return to the Big Apple. For the price paid, it far exceeded our expectations. I would strongly recommend it.

Room Tip: Higher up the better to be far away from any street noise

Shakkazulu,

It's awesome to hear that you were in town for the Manning Bowl and hope you had fun! It is also great to hear that you didn't find difficulty sleeping with the city noise and got a good night's sleep. We genuinely appreciate that you took the time out of your day to fill out a response of our hotel and look forward to seeing you during your next visit to the Big Apple!
