Location is great .. staff was super friendly ... being from the South .. I was afraid everyone would be rude ... LOL .. I found all the New Yorkers to be very nice .. it is the tourists that are RUDE.
Hotel was very clean .. felt very safe .. the doorman was very helpful getting a car for me to go to dinner ... (All of a sudden .. there were NO Taxis) .... would stay again

Used Hilton Honors points to book a quick getaway with the husband. Was a little concerned about staying in Times Square. Totally unfounded. The hotel was very nice and clean. Room was remarkably quiet. All of the staff were friendly and professional. Nathan went above and beyond assisting us in getting our bearings with the Subway system. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends.

The morning crew, Raquel, Coretta and Safet are some of the friendliest, helpful I've come to know in my travels. In addition to making me feel at home, I've seen them on occasion being confronted by hostile guests who come to them with unreasonable demands. They are cool, calm and gracious, even under fire.

I suspect the rest of the deskers whom I don't know well are similarly gracious. When the hotel's prices exceed my company's limits (as they tend to do from about May-December and I am forced to stay elsewhere), it is their hospitality I miss the most.

This has been my "go to" hotel for business trips to NYC over the past 14 years. I count on the this property's quality & consistency and the staff's thoughtfulness to ensure I sleep well and am refreshed for all NYC has to offer. Even when the hotel has groups it still feels nice and calm in your room - which are oversized compared to other properties. As others have said, it is central to everything and easy access to EWR or LGA (I prefer EWR). The bedding is great and I love the fact the bathrooms have full-size countertops instead of the half size countertops at some other properties (cosmetics fall off the half-size counters). Not sure what I think of the new sinks with faucet on the side, but that is a minor item. One of the best Hiltons around.

Room Tip: I usually request a room facing the Empire State Building to see the sunsets.

I made reservations to stay at the Hilton Times Square, along with three other couples, between Christmas and New Year's. I talked with the hotel staff about where the car valet service was, plugged it into the GPS, drove right to it and was inside the street level hallway, with our bags, in less than 5 minutes. No stress, no problem, and at $52.00 per day, reasonable and very convenient.

At check in, a very accommodating young man named Marvin, helped two couples in our group get adjoining rooms, and the third couple only one floor up. I appreciated his helpfulness and extra effort, especially during the holidays, when patience, and helpfulness are often and understandably, in short supply.

We found all three rooms to be clean, enormous (by my standards) comfortable and convenient to one another. Throughout our two night, 3-day stay, the front desk service and concierge were very helpful. The street level staff were quick and efficient in procuring taxis large enough for our entire group.

Checkout was smooth, and our wait for the valet service to get the cars at the end of our stay was about 5 minutes.

The Hilton Times Square made this visit to New York City hassle free and relaxing. And the hotel location is 5-star!!

Room Tip: Check ahead id you want adjoining rooms, they are available!

The best of the stay is that the building has access to both 42nd and 41st Streets and depending on yourself you can choose either go to the crowed NYC or going to explore the city by the "backdoor". Hotel amenities are well maintened, but the staff is a pandora box: you can get attended by a very nice person or by a bad mood bell (like in my case)
