Our first visit to New York, arriving in a snow storm echo of the Arctic Vortex. We had paid a little extra for view of Times Square and were given a room on the corner of the building with great views to the square in two directions around the 30th floor. The room was what we wanted and expected. We hadn't paid top dollar for 5 star but the suite was comfortable with king size bed and efficient (non-noisy) room heating. The room was close to the lifts (elevators) but we were unbothered by noise throughout our stay (either from the lifts or neighbouring rooms). I' read reviews saying that the lights from the Square kept people awake but out room had blackout curtains and lights were not a problem for us. The lounge area had a wet bar, desk, enough power sockets, chair, sofa, filter coffee machine and adequate supply of coffee to keep us going. TVs in lounge and bedroom. As we were on Hilton Honours list we could choose a bonus and we took 'free wifi' which was reliable and good enough for Skype video. Bathroom was clean and bright with good water pressure in the shower and plentiful hot water. We could have done with a little more cupboard space or a couple of strategically placed coat pegs for outdoor coats. There was refurbishment work being carried out in (upstairs) lobby area; as a result this appeared a bit dark and was a bit chilly - made up for by the warmth and friendliness of the staff who were consistently helpful. With New York all around we didn't eat at the hotel, very happy with diner breakfasts (one just a couple of minutes walk away) and plenty of affordable variety a few blocks over in Hell's Kitchen etc.. We stayed for 4 nights and the hotel's great location was perfect for us to wander up to Central Park, across to Grand Central, over to the Hudson, stroll over to Hell's Kitchen/Chelsea or grab a subway down to the financial district. Our room was at the lower end of the price range at the hotel (just upgraded to get the view of the Square). It was comfortable, well maintained and functional but not luxurious - exactly what we expected/hoped for the price. If I get back to New York, I'd be very happy to stay again and would be happy to recommend to others.

Room Tip: Corner suite/views of Times Square were worth the upgrade.

I travel frequently for business and stay at many different hotel chains. I had recently begun to shy away from Hilton properties to see what other Hotels had to offer. However, I will be back to Hilton properties as my go-to hotel chain after my excellent stay in New York in January.

Although the lobby construction was not the most convenient, the location was great for the cost and the staff was above and beyond excellent during my stay. When we arrived in our room we even had a complimentary bottle of champagne waiting for my girlfriend and I for our anniversary! When you take service to that next level and add that finishing touch like this, it really sets the trip off right.

And because of going that extra mile, I will continue to use Hilton properties for business and personal travel.

You can't beat this location. We also loved staying in a suite and having the convenience of a living room. That way one of us could watch TV in the other room without waking up the other person. What a nice touch to give out chocolate chip cookies! They are incredible!

This hotel is in a great location, and is good for both families and business travellers. Breakfast is served in the hotel restaurant, and there is a good selection of continental through to cooked breakfasts and made to order pancakes and waffles etc. The rooms are all comfortably furnished, and general amenities are provided with fridge, microwave, coffee maker etc. The location is central, in times square. You get a nice view from all floors. Overall a nice hotel. Be aware renovations are going on that can give public areas a temporary feel.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor away from the elevators. A room facing south faces onto times square.

Other than the lobby construction and elevator problems from the ground to the lobby, this hotel was an excellent value and location for a few days in NYC. Our room, up on 38, had spectacular views of Times Square--and the M & M video billboard with Ms. Green making googley eyes up at my husband and everything! The room was enormous with plenty of space for a family with a microwave and mini fridge for quick meals and snacks. Self parking was a breeze once we figured out where it was. We did decide to drop our car and drag our bags the block to the hotel because the traffic--aided by the lack of snow removal--was a nightmare. It was easier upon checkout when my husband could get the car and then come get me and the bags without going around the block. Dragging the bags was worth the $15 a day savings over valet. Since we are Hhonors gold members, breakfast was included. The buffet was lovely with omelets to order and a nice selection of other breakfast foods. Because of the construction, there wasn't much to see in the lobby so I look forward to our next visit when it is completed. The location of the hotel is terrific. Lots to walk around and see in Times Square, a quick subway trip from anywhere and of course cabs are plentiful. This is my new go to hotel in NYC whenever we visit!
