From reading the reviews, both hotels seem to be good; there is not much difference in their quality/price. Hilton Times Square is rated 12th best by TripAdvisor, whilst Garden Inn 35th Street rated 17th best (out of over 400 hotels).
There is also not much of a price difference between the two. Hilton Times Square is only around $200 more than Hilton 35th street (over 9 nights, that's only an extra $20 sumthing dollars per night). Hilton Times Square seems to be in a little bit of a better location? whilst Hilton 35th street has been voted by trip advisor to be 'top value'.
We want to stay somewhere central and in a good location, and close to main attractions, shopping, action etc, and plan on getting around the city by walking or subway/public transport. Both these hotels seem to satisfy these needs? Or can you recommend one over the other?
Would really appreciate your help in recommending which hotel would be better suited for us :)
