Best thing is location, rest only ok

This Hilton is mediocre for a 4 star, full service hotel. The lobby is poorly designed (after you get to it from an elevator at street level), crowded, unattractive. The hotel bar is less appealing, right in the middle of the lobby and elevator area with zero ambiance. If you want to spend time at the hotel bar and restaurant, this one is not the one, but if you are just going to sleep and shower there, it's fine. We went to another hotel bar to meet friends instead. The staff are nice enough when you ask for something, but do not seem to have the 'make sure the customer is happy' attitude. Room service was ok, but badly set up; no plates or bowls and creamer in a drinking glass with no spout. The best thing about this place is the location to the Broadway shows and Times Square, which is as good as it gets. Overall, not up to Hilton quality for me.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Stay near the area you intend to spend most of your time in because the city can get jammed up for driving and that is a real problem for being on time to shows and dinners. There were several 'demonstrations' the weekend we were there and walking or the subway were the only options.

Excellent Location - Heart of Manhattan!

I was there for a convention at Jacob Javitz Center. Fifteen minute walk from hotel to convention center. Perfect! Didn't need to wait for crowded convention buses or taxis. Wonderful hotel! huge room; clean; quiet. Excellent staff. Excellent value!

Beautiful hotel

Right in the heart of Times Square but without the noise! Though I room didn't face Times Square, we could see from our window The Statue of Liberty, the Freedom Tower and the Empire State building. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat!

Great hotel for business trip

Clean, comfortable newly renovated room in the perfect location for business in Times Square. I could walk to my meeting. Also very quiet given the location. The staff were very helpful. I'll definitely stay here again.

Worth paying a little extra

My daughter and I stayed 5 nights and I was thrilled at the location but nervous that it would be noisy at night time due to location. Our room at night was so quiet with zero noise from below and in the corridors. The standard of room is without a doubt 5 star with peter Thomas Roth being products of choice they leave in your bathroom which was a real treat. Safety and security in this hotel was ideal. We felt very safe at all times which for me was important. Excellent staff , overall couldn't have chosen a nicer hotel.

Nice location

The location was great (right in the middle of Times Square), but our A/C did not work at times (overheating according to the engineer). The staff wasn't that helpful other than for checking in and checking out. Could never give us one answer for our inquiries, such as specifics for our room (complimentary breakfast and what not) we would get different answers depending on who answered.
