This was a convention hotel for me, and I am a HHonors member. I did get the business upgrade and thanks to this site, I asked for a room in the renovated area. I got the 11th floor. Total price including city and state tax, around 300/night. For this, I got... a room. Fit and finish were very good, the bed was nice and firm, the cover was clean and all the other things you expect were there. There was an odd internet set up with a flatscreen (extra charge, of course). As noted in the other reviews, simply everything else had a charge, from parking to internet to the fitness center/pool. I am sure administration would say they are saving money for the patrons that do not use these features. My view was an anonymous wall of the hotel across the street; I guess they haven't figured out how to monetize this.
ATT wireless, like you get with your smartphone thru ATT, works fine.
Not sure why, but I don't feel this violated in downtown New York City. If you you stay downtown in a major city, you will pay. And pay. This Hilton takes it to the maximum. Stay here because of the location, and plan ahead so you don't get sticker shock. Next time, I will stay a block or two away. Still very expensive, but a better value. The interior architecture was grand, particularly the renovated area on the first floor.
