The worst Hilton that I ever stay. The rooms are size of a cheap side road motel, maintenance is bad and hallways are so narrow as you will have difficulties rolling your suitcase through them. The only positive aspect of this hotel is location. Definitely does not meet the Hilton standards.

The hotel has pluses and minuses. Front desk staff were very friendly, and helpful, though by phone not always available. Twice we had to go downstairs to ask for help on something re our room, because no one answered the front desk. Our room was clean, functional, and the bed was very comfortable. The room was generally quiet, although the heating made a dripping sound in the middle of the night, except when we had a person next door who made a lot of noise (the walls are very thin). The bathroom was accessible, but done in a makeshift way, e.g., water came out on floor outside shower, curtain too short, floor not correctly leveled. Bathroom door is sliding and did not shut completely, annoyingly! The bathroom sink has no space around it to put your travel bag. Our refrigerator had been turned off and we could not turn it on without help from engineering. Likewise, our TV was not working. We had to wait 24 hours for engineering to get us a new one. Finally, the lobby was surprisingly small, which we did not realize from the pictures online, and extremely crowded most of the time, so that we could not hang out there with our friends also in the hotel. NY doesn’t seem to care about COVID anymore! Finally, the restaurant connected to the hotel is very expensive (Empire Steakhouse), but food was good. The price was right for the hotel, but I think I will go elsewhere next time I’m in NY. Read less

Most of the staff where not nice. Once i tried to ask about something to the officer at the front desk, he talked to me while still playing at his phone an not even looking at me. But the guy that standing in front of the front desk was really really nice

This Hilton Location and the staff on this location are causing harm to the Hilton brand - I can say this for sure, have spent many nights in multiple Hilton locations, a diamond member as a result of it ( HH 1184895868) - screw up on my laundry because the front desk folks forget to put the laundry paper in the bag - for the screw up offers me two breakfast coupons; not going to make up for the time lost. - the wi fi sign in the landing page is so spotty- never had this bad experience ever any hotel anywhere in the world - busy lifts even in the non peak hours; cleaning staff, working staff use the same lifts - keep the lift doors open to chat.
