I had a very nice stay with my bf. We only stayed one night on the 21rst floor. Although our view was the back of the hotel it was still a nice view. I’ll recommend to family and friends! Super close to Time Square about a 5 minute walk. Breakfast was packaged bagels and muffins. But other than that good stay!

Was not aware of an additional $60 per night for parking. As a diamond member, they did not welcome me and did not offer any water bottle. Not sure if it’s a New York location thing or not. Location was good

We stayed here for a quick family visit, and this hotel made it perfect. The desk and housekeeping staff were very accommodating, and we were very close to the subway station. The room was clean and had a great city view. We’d definitely book here again.

I am a diamond member with Hilton properties. I travel a great deal and primarily only reside at Hilton properties. Especially, since Covid-19, I really love the fact that all Hilton properties has partnered with Lysol. This particular hotel has dropped the ball! Broke the Lysol seal... entered the room.Toilet seat wide open with hair inside the toilet, sink & countertop were filthy. I was in shock & took a video. At check in I was informed that I would NOT receive any service for my entire 5 day stay. Now, I'm not a nasty person, so I don't require housekeeping to make my bed or take my trash everyday but I do expect a CLEAN ROOM AT UPON ARRIVAL!! The room was slightly small but most rooms in the city are fairly small.These rooms are also not equipped with a refrigerator or a microwave. I was on the 26th floor, so every time I needed to heat anything up I had to go all the way to the lobby to heat my food...ridiculous!!! The staff wasn't the nicest but I understood to a certain degree only because I am a native NewYorker...it is what it is ,but some take it too far! So, one afternoon my husband & I were laying in bed relaxing & watching tv. I was naked and my husband only had his underwear on. One of the hotel staff entered our room UNANNOUNCED. When my husband popped up & said excuse me.... the staff quickly left the room. My husband ran to the door & asked him why he entered our room. He quickly said sorry, didn't explain anything & left as fast as possible! This in it self is UNACCEPTABLE!!!!! I feel like I should've started my review with this....but cleanliness is absolutely important too!!! This is a non-smoking property that you can get high off of the contact from all the tenants smoking weed in there rooms!! I definitely will rethink ever staying at a another Hampton Inn! Definitely disappointed in this property period. Read less

I would strongly recommend a stay at the Hampton Inn Manhattan/Times square. The staff was courteous, the hotel clean and well situated to points of interest. I felt comfortable and safe! The rooms were quiet and I was able to sleep soundly!
