Historical Traveler Reviews Millenium Hilton New York City
About as NEW as you can get!
We just spent 5 nights at this all but brand new hotel. Marble floors and walls with granite counter tops in the bathroom. Comfortable kingsize bed. Nice flatscreen T.V. Missing a microwave & refrigerator and inroom coffee for mornings. The ONLY negagives I have is the early morning construction noise from ground zero which didn't seem to ever let up but it was pretty muffled and the Restaurant was a little pricey so we didn't eat there because there are so MANY other places within a block. Buses and Subway right out the front door. Pretty easy and fast to get anywhere from downtown to midtown. Got the room thru Priceline. When asking for a complimentary breakfast as others had indicated they received, they just laughed. We would definifely go back.
Loved the 'MIllenium'
The Millenium Hotel is beautiful, especially @ a rate $149 a night (when I stayed). The customer service was excellent, and the bed felt "just like home". The 42' plasma TV, cosmopolitan decor, and huge window were only some of the perks the hotel had to offer. The only thing that I can really complain about is parking. I drove to NY on this occassion, as I always do, and the hotels parking accomadations were terrible. I was afraid I would come outside the next morning and the car would be towed away. Oh, and the "World Trade Center Whole" can be a little much. If your still traumatized, don't stay here, but if not, go and sleep in one of the most comfortable rooms in NYC.
Convenient and comfortable
More convenient than the Holiday Inn Wall St, and nicer rooms but small (avoid the rooms just before the corner suites). Plasma screens beg for DVD players (they are not available from the hotel), but business travelers can connect their laptops to the screen with a Male-Male VGA cable for computing or movie watching. Unfortunately, the staff can't help you there.
Best mother daughter hotel
stayed weekend Oct. 17-19 and loved the Hilton! Subway directly in front of hotel to go uptown westside and 1 block away subway takes you anywhere. There's always cabs and Jerry the doorman to help you with anything. Century 21 discount department store is great! My daughter purchased Juicy shirts for $24.00 and Miss Sixty jeans for $50! The room is incredible! Large, clean, comfortable and huge bathroom counter so that we could put on our make-up at the same time. Unheard of in most New York hotels. Breakfast was included in our rate but it's not so good unless all you want is a bagel but it gets very crowded so Sunday morning we went next door to the Stage Deli and had a great cheap breakfast. Another secret is that if you want great knock off designer bags you need not go into Chinatown- they sell them right in front of the hotel. Have fun.....
No HAL 9000 in sight
The Millenium is a thoroughly up to date modern iteration of the Hilton ethic. The 57 floor structure is a sleek design, influenced no doubt by the black monolith heralding civilization in Kubrick's film '2001'.
Ironically, Hilton's monolith was witness to the real 2001's near unravelling of civilization. Enough of that. The Hilton is a very good, if not great hotel, well located to lower Manhatten, Seaport and Tribeca sights. Staff was very good. Not all rooms overlook ground zero, and not all rooms have the plasma TV. Ours was one, but the view of the estimable Woolworth's building more than made up for it. Very good value, no doubt in effect until more people feel comfortable staying in this area. We drove in without problem, although the parking fee is high, even for New York ($45/day)
Betetr than the average at a great price
Stayed here just after it reopened. As stated before, don't stay here if you have any negative feelings about being so close, in fact overlooking, Ground Zero. Got a great rate, rooms are just fine, trendier decor than the usual Hilton style, fabulous 42" tv screens.
Internet access is a bit flakey on them. Business centre a little short of workstations and closes too early for most business users. A mix up on my booking meant the reception staff had to scramble to get me a room and this they did without much fuss. Restaurant slow, but good solid food quality.
Keep up the good work
Really liked this place, from the rate (134) to the decor, to the HELPFUL staff ("helpful" and "staff" are usually not used in the same sentence when talking about New York hotels). Great TV (42" plasma), great view of the Hudson from the 29th floor, and good recommendations from the concierge desk. Will DEFINITELY return
Excellent value for money
Let's face the main fact first. Every room in this hotel directly - and I mean directly - overlooks the World Trade Centre pit. If you're not happy with this, don't stay here. However, you'd be missing out. This is a new hotel (1999ish) and, in any event, had to be completely rebuilt internally post 9/11 and has only recently reopened. It currently offers excellent value for money - I paid $134 in August from the Hilton website and, as a Hilton HHonors gold card holder, also got free breakfast (worth $19) and a junior suite upgrade. One third of the rooms are suites or junior suites so your chance of an upgrade is good.
It has a nice pool and the staff are noticeably more courteous than average. The rooms are not so large - even my junior suite - but the plasma TV, CD player, free mineral water, wrap-around windows and new, high quality furnishings more than compensated. The metro is directly outside and it is as good a spot as any for tourists, even if all the local restaurants, even fast food ones, close at 9pm as Wall Street winds down!
Average to little above average at the Hilton
I thought the location of the hotel was prime for downtown. The size of the rooms was on the small-average size. The tv's inside the room were nice 42' plasma. The room was decorated ok.
Quiet and comfortable
The Hotel was comfortable and was quiet. Nothing special about the decor nor the size of the room. But there weren't any 'surprises' to darken my stay. I'd stay here again!
