“Great location and excellent service”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Terrific new property with great service. Checked in late at night with very competent and friendly front-desk team even late on a Sunday. Called the help line three times for HVAC, internet and housekeeping questions. All were immediately addressed correctly. What a pleasure.

We were very disappointed with this hotel. We have found most Doubletree hotels to be clean, comfortable and to provide great service. We stayed for 5 nights at this hotel. We asked for some additional towels upon arrival and had to ask two more times before we got them (and when we did, we got a blanket instead of towels--we had to ask for TOWELS). We asked for the toilet paper holder to be fixed (it was falling apart) and the shower to be fixed (it was not draining and we were standing in our soapy/dirty water when we showered). They fixed the toilet paper holder, but it took 3 calls to the manager (and almost as many days), to get the shower fixed. We wanted to use the Internet and the code they gave us upon check in didn't work. It took an hour of talking to people on the phone, being transferred from person to person to find someone who actually knew the right code to get logged in. Our bathroom was only cleaned on the weekdays that we were here (what?!). That was ridiculous. On one of the days the bathroom was cleaned, they did not leave a bag for the ice bucket or toilet paper, and did not replenish all of the towels. There is an inch of dust on the table lamp in the room, indicating that it hasn't been dusted in a while. My husband also complained about the size of the hotel room, however, I think it's pretty much on par with most NYC hotels (postage stamp size).
The pros about this hotel is it's location. It's a 10-minute walk to Grand Central Station and a 20-minute walk to Broadway and most of the theaters.

I stayed at Metropolitan, NY, but my room was just next to their lifts. During night, terrible noise of lift was there in my room, so that I could not have any sleep that night.... Be carefull abt our room location when you make a booking. Bcz of a high season, I paid more than US$500 per night, it's not worthy for it at all.

We are Hilton Gold and so got free breakfast which was nice. The beds were softer than we would like and the bedside lamp was more a desk lamp that made it hard to read in bed. Vickie was great at check-in although there always seemed to be lines for check-in. There's a sign at one desk that says Hilton Honors and it's unclear whether the expectation is that Hilton honors members should all register there. There was a nice sitting area on the main floor for visiting with a few people. I asked for different pillows and received them quickly, however I had a message on my phone asking me to call and confirm that I'd gotten the pillows, but no one answered at the number I was asked to call. Guests were always waiting in line to talk to someone in registration. I got a late check-out but had to gets my keys re-done so I wasn't locked out at noon and I had to wait several minutes just to do that.

Room Tip: It's New York City and all rooms probably have outside noise.

This hotel has a fantastic location, as it is within walking distance from my number of attractions and it is literally right next to the 6 train line.

The hotel itself is OK...not great but not bad. We had a couple of problems during our stay, but the staff made up for it.

Your excellent and responsive staff overcame room cleanliness problems. The shower curtain was mildewed and smelled horrible-it was changed immediately upon request. Unfortunately, the toilet seat was loose and needs repair and the tub is chipped. Not major issues, but for an elite brand and price like Hilton's, unacceptable. The hotel location is terrific; wonderful neighborhood, good walking and restaurants. Major plus is access to mass transportation.
