I booked this hotel a couple months out through United Airlines because I had some miles that I wanted to get rid of and this seemed like a good opportunity.

The service was great even though I didn't book through Hilton. Sometimes you have to watch with that. I've had a couple Priceline experiences at other hotels where I've bid on rooms, paid way below the regular rate, and received service from some front desk employees who weren't too concerned with how my stay was. Not this time, though.

I had a high room and the hotel went the extra mile and made arrangements for me and the other people I was with to have adjoining rooms. I was really impressed. The lobby bar was nice, but expensive. It is New York City, though, so I didn't take it personally.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Times Square New York City

Great Value, Great Location

from

I wanted to experience the 4th of July Fireworks I had only seen a glimpse of on TV so I planned a trip to NY. I had been surfing for good deals on hotels through all of the normal channels. I came across a couple of modern style hotels with really good prices for NYC on a holiday weekend. Somehow, I was directed to tripadvisor and I was so glad I read up before booking. The reviews had nothing good to say about these particular hotels and the complaints were covering things I didn't want to think about dealing with. So, I looked at a couple of other hotels at a little higher price range. I found the Hilton Times Square and saw nothing but rave reviews. I thought I would experience it for myself. The hotel was in a great location. The rooms were good size for a midtown hotel (have stayed in much smaller rooms). I really appreciated that we had 2 teenagers with us (both 17 years old) and we weren't charged extra for them staying in the same room. The room was clean and cool (much needed after coming in from 94 degrees) and something great for the summer was Cold Stone Creamery opening up right across the street! If you haven't tried their ice cream, you're missing out!We found a good price $143/night on Expedia, but when I went to the Hilton web site, they had a special offer if you paid the 1st night non-refundable, it was only $127/night with a minimum 14 days advance purchase.The hotel was very close to food, theatre (across the street from the show 42nd St), more food, more entertainment, corner drug store, more food, and more entertainment and a subway station. The price was right and in my opinion, you can't go wrong with a Hilton Hotel.The only drawback I saw was the advertisement on the Internet (on the Hilton website) listed them as having a pool. When we got to the front desk, they told us they have told the management numerous times and it still hasn't changed. They haven't ever had a pool in their location. They apologized for any inconvenience, but the only thing we went to the hotel for was a shower and some sleep.The fireworks were fabulous! 4 barges on the East River (there were more down at Battery Park). They let off 30,000 fireworks within 30 minutes. I wish I had done a little more research on where to watch the fireworks. They had seats available on Roosevelt Island for $18 per person. If I had known, we wouldn't have been in the front of the huge crowd at the waterfront getting poked and pushed by the kids behind us.All in all, it was a great trip and having a decent hotel can make all the difference in the world.

Great Location, great hotel

The Hilton Times Square was wonderful. The location was perfect, the staff was very accommodating. You felt very safe in this area, and the hotel, and policemen were all around the hotel all the time. Security also checked your room key each time you entered, just to be sure you were a Hilton guest. I definitely recommend this hotel, it's great

Great Location

from

We loved the location - being able to walk out the door and being right in the theater district. The hotel is only a five minute walk to the Port Authority and there are several very good places to eat close by.

We will definitely stay here the next time we are in NYC.

Great experience

from

Stayed here June 2003 (deluxe room) and it was a great experience.

Large, clean rooms with lots of extras. Nice robes in room, nightly

turndown service, coffeemaker in room, hairdryer, refreshment center.

Bellmen and Doorman were very friendly, efficient and courteous. Housekeeping was excellent.

The location is great! Easy walk to Broadway shows, TS attractions, and PA Bus Terminal is steps away. Lots of dining options close by. 24 hour

Duane Reade (full service pharmacy similar to Walgreens or CVS) steps

away.

I felt very safe here, and Times Square area was very well patrolled by local police and TS security.

NYC in general, seems to have a much increased police and security

presence.

I would recommend this hotel without hesitation and will be back!

We stayed at the Hilton Times Square for 3 nights over spring break this year. We got the room on Hotwire (fabulous price). It couldn't have been better. First of all, the front desk staff was very friendly and helpful (gave us a choice of views - the room we got had a view of the Empire State Building). The room was spacious. The lobby is nicely decorated and very vibrant. The room decor is very nice, albeit a little more "standard" than the Westin Times Square, where we stayed for several days earlier in the week. The location can't be beat for tourists - near the theatres, public transportation, etc.

Great hotel

Spent five nights in the hilton times square. rooms were great, very big and being on the forty third floor, we had great views of times square. the staff, from housekeeping to the concierge were excellent and nothing was too much trouble for them. we will difintely return to this hotel in the future.

A Gem at a Great Value!

My boyfriend and I got a great deal for the Times Square Hilton through Hilton.com - $179 a night! What a great price for a luxury hotel! The property is beautiful, the staff are pleasant and really go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. Everything was clean and smelled nice, the room was quite large (standard king) and the view was spectacular. One final note--there is an Applebee's Restaurant which is accessible from inside the hotel by the 42nd street entrance--take advantage of it, because the prices at the hotel restaurant are ridiculous!

Beautiful, Classy Hotel

from

I rented one of the suites at the Hilton Times Square and the view was fabulous! When looking out the window, to the left was the Empire State Building and to the right was the river. The room was large and comfortable, with two bathrooms, living room, and a bar area. The service was excellent, and the lobby area was quite elegant. I couldn't have stayed at a nicer place.

Highly recommended

i have heard horrible reviews on hotels in new york. the hilton times square is in the heart of manhattan and only 2 yrs old. we had a great room at the cheapest rate- larger than most in new york city. the room was very clean and the service was great. i would definately go back there if i made another trip to new york. the friedly staff made the service all the more enjoyable. be sure to habng out the above bar in the lobby, the do some great martinis

Positive experience!

Stayed here on 7/19/02, the room was a standard size, very spacious, very clean. Great placement off of Times Square, super convenient to theater area. Our room shared a wall with a bank of elevators and we never heard the sounds of the elevators EVER! Our view faced downtown, we could see the Empire State bldg to our left, and New Jersey to our right. I'd stay here again!

To give you an idea of the day and how far we walked (my feet are killing me) we saw, times sq, grand central station, the Rockefeller centre, soho, Greenwich village, Brooklyn bridge, the court house and lots of sights in between! We went to a great American restaurant in Greenwich village which had been recommended to us called the corner bistro! It was quite a walk but worth it! Simple American ...
