The hotel

We were close to Times Square and the Broadway shows. The breakfast was great to have each day before we started sight seeing. I would definitely stay here on my next trip to NYC. All of the employees was friendly and helpful.

Incredible location. I wasn't sure which Hilton to choose in Times Square and I would definitely stay here again. Just slightly off of Times Square and so close to everything. Breakfast is typical Hilton complimentary breakfast (waffles, oatmeal, eggs, proteins, breads, yogurt, juice, breads). Yes - the elevators are a little slow but it's not a… Read more

Breakfast is typical Hilton complimentary breakfast (waffles, oatmeal, eggs, proteins, breads, yogurt, juice, breads). Yes - the elevators are a little slow but it's not a huge inconvenience. I was on the 25th floor. Even number rooms face Times Square; odd face the Empire State Building. Very quiet. Decent bed. Hot shower. Excellent price. Would stay here again. Read less

Great location, easy to walk to Times Square and Empire State Building. Hotel was very clean as was the rooms. Free internet worked fine. There aren't any vending machines but there is a little pantry in the lobby that you can grab things and charge to your room.

Great location, easy to walk to Times Square and Empire State Building. Hotel was very clean as was the rooms. Free internet worked fine. There aren't any vending machines but there is a little pantry in the lobby that you can grab things and charge to your room. There aren't many rooms on each floor so its fairly quiet inside (though you still hear the noises on the road). Rooms are a bit small, but probably normal for Manhattan. The bed wasn't the most comfortable and there wasn't much shower pressure. The biggest annoyance is you have to ask at the front desk every single day for housekeeping and several times they didn't even do it. They also often didn't answer the phone (probably short staffed). Also for a building this tall, they only have 3 elevators, and when we were there it appeared the third elevator was broken. This resulted in long waits and crowded elevators. The breakfast was OK but there wasn't any variety day-to-day other than changing between sausage and bacon. No fault of the hotel, but this area of town now seems to have a lot of homeless, drug users, and mentally ill people walking around, all the way from here to Times Square and Broadway. Overall, it was fine but it could have been much better. Read less
