Hilton Garden Inn New York- Central Park South

New York, USA

The hotel

About as close to the Big Apple’s core as you can get, this Midtown hotel’s hugged by the theatre district, Central Park, Fifth Avenue’s shopping, and all those ‘cover story’ sights Manhattan’s famous for. It has a story of its own too – being on the hallowed turf of The Hit Factory, where stars like Michael Jackson, Madonna, and Stevie Wonder made music. At Hilton Garden Inn Central Park South, they know you’re here to experience the city, not a hotel room, but that hasn’t stopped them adding comforts like evening room service, in-room microwaves and mini-fridges (ideal for treats from their Pavilion Pantry market), and complimentary WiFi. When you’re not dining ‘in’, you can head down to the hotel’s Empire Steak House for prime beef or seafood specials, or go ‘out out’ to one of Midtown’s must-try restaurants.

Next time your traveling to New York to see a Broadway show, go to Times Square, see the Stephen Colbert show, right around the corner or just come to NY, this is a great place to stay. I also felt safe as you need a key to access the floors.

We stay at many Hilton’s worldwide and selected this hotel for its close central location. The staff are all exceptionally helpful and welcoming.

We stay at many Hilton’s worldwide and selected this hotel for its close central location. The staff are all exceptionally helpful and welcoming. When we had a query on our room rate the girls behind the counter were super patient. The breakfast is a little limited and gets very same ole same after two days. So we decided to venture further afield for our meals. Was surprised that there were no pancakes available at breakfast. All in all a great central hotel. Read less

The lifts are slow at times, but that’s the only negative. Quiet and spacious rooms, with coffee in the lobby in the morning. They have a washer and dryer (additional charge) and gym which was important to me. Business centre was good too, and friendly staff. Location is convenient.

I stayed here for a week, redeeming my Hilton Honors points. I expected the service to be of low quality, noting is this Midtown Manhattan. I was pleasantly surprised! On multiple ocasiones, I was greeted by multiple staff members at the same time! My initial room was right in front of the elevator. Once I asked for a quiet room, I was placed in a corner room on the 24th floor. (I had a Gold status with Hilton Honors, so your mileage may vary.) I really liked the serenity of the room. Another feature which was a nice surprise for me was the guest laundry facility, wherein one could do their own laundry for prices in line with what NYC residents pay (Ioved in Manhattan for 6years.) Housekeeping was somewhat inconsistent: the 2 complimentary bottles of water promised to Gold members were forgotten on 2 or 3 occasions, no new bath soap for a couple of days, and worst of all, the bath sink had standing water in it when I returned one day. Overall, I was happy with the experience! Read less
