This is my first time I stayed at the HGI on W 35th in New York. The location is excellent: Empire State Building, Time Square, theatre district, and Penn Station are in convenient walking distance. If you like Korean food, there are some fabulous restaurants on 33rd street. Try "Tous Les Jours" for some amazing desserts. The rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn were pretty much standard size for a moderately prized hotel in New York. Decor was updated and pragmatic, everything was clean and convenient. Bed was super comfortable and one of the best features of the room was that it came with a refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom was way beyond expectation: really huge marble walk-in shower with the best shower head and water pressure I have had in a hotel in quite some time.
Another surprising plus in this hotel was the prompt and efficient front desk service, everybody was very helpful and friendly. We arrived really early for check-in on our first day and no rooms were available at the time. They took my cell phone number and ACTUALLY CALLED within half an hour. Another example for the great service was that the battery in our TV remote died the second day of our stay. I called the front desk and had a new remote in less than 5 minutes!!!
The breakfast buffet was plentiful, cooked to order eggs, good coffee.
You are not staying at the Four Seasons, but for a budget hotel chain in New York, the Hilton Garden Inn exceeded all my expectations. You receive excellent value for your money here and I will be happy to come back.
