“Two quick days in the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

This is a small hotel, very close (1 1/2 blocks) to Grand Central. It is a new, very clean, property with pleasant staff and a decent breakfast that is included in the price. I got this room for $152 plus tax/night...fabulous rate for a good place to sleep. I had no trouble with noise (either from the city or from other guests). While the rooms are small, they serve the purpose...a place to sleep after spending all day walking and shopping in NYC! The location is very good. Within walking distance of everything we wanted to do, and with GC so close, you are on a train anywhere you want to go in minutes. Parking right next door is only $28/day with a voucher from the hotel. I would definitely stay here again on a trip to the city. The price, location and cleanliness would be well worth the stay!

New York can be overwhelming for most and especially when arriving from the South Pacific so the Hampton Inn Manhattan/UN was a great find and a delightful hospitality experience at a reasonable price. The room was nice, clean, and cosy and as a female from afar, I felt very safe there. Nice hot breakfast with a lot to chose from and not your usual Continental inclusion that you find in most hotels. The hotel is also very close to the UN HQ for meetings and recommend this hotel to everyone from the South Pacific region as it is truly a home away from home. The staff are attentive, professional and helpful. This made my stay as I arrived late at night and it was quite cold and a young man by the name of Jason (as per is name badge) checked me in quickly and also offered me a pastry whilst attending to my reservations. I would stay there each time and will definitely recommend the Hampton Inn Manhattan/United Nations to family and colleagues who may visit New York.

Like other reviewers, I was impressed. NY is a tough city in which to find a reasonably priced room. NY is a tough city in which to find a quiet room. The room was reasonably priced, quiet, recently renovated. The front desk service was professional. They gave us a coupon so that our parking next door was $28 instead of $65 for 24 hours. They kept our bags safe for us after check out until we were ready to leave the city. This will be my new go-to when I go to NY.

Room Tip: Room 1701 was quiet.

Hi My_AZ,

We appreciate your great review of our property and the time taken to write it. New York City is a tough place to find a quiet room especially when trying to keep close to all the city attractions. Noise and bright lights will definitely become a factor in determining which property you choose to stay with, we are glad you chose the Hampton Inn-United Nations for our off centered location gets one where they need to be quickly but also gives the tranquility one needs when it’s time to rest! We hope you enjoy your future stays with us and take advantage of all the amenities we complimentary offer as well.

We at the Hampton Inn-United Nations wish you a Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!

Very nice and clean room. A little pricey but in a good area. Located within walking distance to Grand Central Station. Breakfast was satisfactory not much to choose from but what was available was good. Hotel staff was very helpful and attentive. I would recommend this hotel if you would like to be close to Times Square but want to escape the higher price of Times Square hotels. You would have to take a cab to Times Square, about ten bucks.

This hotel has very friendly and helpful staff who go out of their way to ensure you are taken care of. If you need access to the United Nations or Grand Central Station, this is the place to stay. Lots of variety at breakfast, although it's a bit crowded at times and you my need to wait for a table. The rooms are immaculate and very comfortable.

Great location, staff always attentive and friendly, comfortable beds and very nice modern rooms. The only downside is the pipes is noisy, but this is because the hotel is built on an old building site I think.
And I was unfortunate enough to have a room right next to the ice machine which added to the noise factor.
I will definately stay here again though. Very good hotel.
