The hotel was very central to everything you would want to do in New York! The room was clean but a little bit small but that was expected in NY. I would recommend this location and would stay there again.
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Good location. But very very limited housekeeping even on request.

Hotel is in a good location. Accommodations were ok. But good luck if you want any housekeeping even on request. While I understand due to the pandemic housekeeping services are limited, to every 4th day, but to my understanding across all the Hilton brands other than their luxury brands, housekeeping service can be requested for more… Read more
Hotel is in a good location. Accommodations were ok. But good luck if you want any housekeeping even on request. While I understand due to the pandemic housekeeping services are limited, to every 4th day, but to my understanding across all the Hilton brands other than their luxury brands, housekeeping service can be requested for more frequently. Apparently not at this property. Now I don’t need the linens changed but I like at least everyday the room freshen up (change out the towels, take out the trash, make the bed). Hey I’m paying for it anyway. Well this property doesn’t do it even on request. And was pulling teeth to come in every other day. Again I understand the limited service and that should be an option to each guest if they don’t want the daily service fine, but when a brand has a policy that it can be requested and you don’t do it, now that’s a different issue.

This hotel is in convenient location for business and leisure. The service is lacking. This was our second stay and it seems the service is declining. We were not informed of service options, the room was not cleaned well and we were not advised we could opt out of room service. Will look at alternative property in the future.

Terrible service, the room was dirty and old. We asked for the room to be cleaned 3 days in a row and they just didn't care, they did not clean the room in our whole stay (7 days). Staff was rude. I don't recommend staying here! Wifi does not work well, elevators are not sufficient for the amount of people. Room phone does not work if you want to… Read more

Look for Park central hotel...' much better. Read less

This Garden Inn provides an extremely well located and reasonably priced (for NY) location in the city, just off Broadway, on the edge of Hells Kitchen for great eats, and a quick jog from Central Park (to work off those calories). Rooms are spacious and comfortable. And it hosts a convenient bar and restaurant with good patio seating right on… Read more
This Garden Inn provides an extremely well located and reasonably priced (for NY) location in the city, just off Broadway, on the edge of Hells Kitchen for great eats, and a quick jog from Central Park (to work off those calories). Rooms are spacious and comfortable. And it hosts a convenient bar and restaurant with good patio seating right on the street. The one regular issue is the elevators .. only two (of 3) seemed to be working when we were there, and waits could be interminable. Having stayed before we know to take a low floor room so we could go by the stairs (8 floors, mind you)- be warned. One reason we stay in Garden Inns is that they have the best breakfast in the Hilton chain (a big plus for Diamonds) … but this one was not providing it, supposedly because of Covid. Seems a lame excuse when you have a patio area, and could presumably seat the vaccinated inside, no problem. Looks like cost-saving to me. Similarly with housekeeping: Covid is the excuse for no service, garbage piling up and no express checkout. Really? Read less
