“Great stay”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

I stayed at the Hampton Inn Manhattan/UN the first weekend in October with my parents. We had a great stay. The rooms were a little bit bigger than many Manhattan hotel rooms (the rooms with 2 double beds were more spacious than the rooms with 1 king bed). The rooms and bathrooms were updated and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was the typical Hampton Inn breakfast - a few hot items and other continental-type items.
The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. I was waiting on a last-minute delivery from Rent the Runway and they called my cell when it arrived.
Location was outstanding - short walk to the subway, easy to get taxis near the hotel. I would definitely stay here on my next trip to NYC.

My family needed a place to stay for the night in Manhattan due to emergency work being done on our apartment. We chose this Hampton Inn due to the price, cheaper than most Manhattan hotels, but also due to the consistent quality and accomodations Hampton Inn provides across its chain of hotels. You know what you're getting with Hampton Inn. The only negative was that the room smelled a little musty when we first entered it. Opening the window and running the air conditioner helped.

We spent three nights here and were very impressed by the friendly and helpful staff, all of whom really do care about their guests' level of satisfaction. The hotel is centrally located and while the rooms are rather small, as is typical in midtown, the space is well used.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors are less affected by inevitable street noise.

Stayed 2 nights in Sept, and found this hotel b/c my usual option was booked due to the UN conferences in town. Front desk staff was very friendly and had water, snacks in a bag at the desk for the HHonors guests. Room was large and very clean. I also used the gym in the basement and it was better than most hotels you find at this level with multiple machines. This location is perfect for restaurants as one of the best sushi places in the city is just down the street. My only pet peeve is just 2 elevators, but would definitely stay here again .

The experience of staying at this hotel was exceptional. All of the staff were very professional and went out of their way to be helpful. The rooms very clean, comfortable,quiet and a good size for a NYC hotel. It was easy and cost saving to have a free breakfast. The breakfast offerings were numerous. To the other reviewers who complained about the size of the breakfast room----the room size was adequate it was the rude guests reading their smart phones or lingering over a cup of coffee for long periods of time. The hotel also has a deal with the parking garage 2 doors away which saved me $100. I would definitely stay here again.

Down the street from Grand Central station. Great staff who are very friendly and accomodating. New location with nice rooms and good use of limited NY space. Great addition to the Hilton family in NYC.

Stayed here for 3 nights with my 1 year old son. I love how clean the room was. I'm a germ-a-phob and loved the fact they wash the duvet cover for each guest and they have a sticky on the bed to tell us they did so. The room was so clean that I didn't mind my little guy crawling on the floor. It wasn't too small, we had a king sized bed and still had enough room to store our umbrella stroller and large luggage. Our room was near the elevator (which all rooms are) we heard it open and ding, but it didn't bother us.

There is no in room fridge, however the staff was super awesome to store my baby's milk in the fridge and allow me access to it whenever I needed. They keep it locked at all times. They even stored my ice pack!


The breakfast had hot and cold items, essential items to hold us over until lunch.

It was everything I expected based on the reviews here. Short walk to grand central. Would stay here again!
