Great place for a quick visit!

They let us check in early and our room was comfy and clean...and the view was breathtaking. We left the curtains open all night to enjoy the color changing lights! Great location, convenient to shows and restaurants. Our room was near the elevator but we were not bothered by the noise of guests coming and going.

The Super Shuttle from Laguardia to the Hotel was horrible. We waited 45 minutes for a shared van and still picked up several more passengers until the van was filled to capacity. Then it took over an hour and a half to get to the Hilton Times Square....not worth the savings! Take a car or cab! The lovely concierge desk found us a car in 2 minutes for the ride back to the airport!

in the middle of the theater district

very unfriendly staff. overpriced, especially the breakfast. Buy the breakfast on the street and eat it in your room. very close to Times Square.

Short Stay.....

On arrival found that one of the exits was under renovation but this didn't impact just caused inconvience as the access to the hotel was the reason we booked it.. Have stayed in sister hotels and have found them that little bit better by way of hotel facilities... e.g breakfast others have an area in reception where you could buy pastries/fruit e.g croissants, bannana's but not this one breakfast inhouse and room service very expensive.. Apart from that our room keys seemed to cause probs leading to numerous trips up and down to reception but all were quickly resolved.

A Pleasant Oasis

Finding an affordable hotel room in NYC that still delivers a quality experience has become increasingly challenging. The Times Square Hilton is a pleasant exception in that it is located in an ideal location and, given its unique layout, nearly every room provides a fine view and is far enough away from the noise of the city that you would swear you were in the country. The rooms are spacious & clean and the amenities are just about on par with hotels costing far more. Totally recommend it as a pleasant oasis to escape the stresses of the city.

thanksgiving shopping trip

The hotel was nothing fancy, but clean and nice. The location was perfect except that the entrance was closed on 42nd street and you had to use the one on 41st. It was no big deal but would have been even more convenient with other entrance. It was right in the middle of times square but quiet and comfy.

Do not be afraid to use the subway. It is very convenient and saves you tons of money. There is an app on the iphone that helps. We took two cabs which were 10-11 dollars apiece. The subway got us most places quickly.

Beautiful Hotel Friendly Staff

After locating the Hotel we were greeted with the bell men on the street level and directed to the elevator to the lobby which was beautiful we were offered a complamentry upgrade and gladly took it. The young woman waiting on us told us there was a beautiful view and she wasn't kidding. It was a beautiful room - so clean and bright and the view was fantastic. We were struck, during our stay, at how friendly everyone was and we felt very welcome and almost sorry we had to leave!

Don't miss the 9/11 Memorial. It was the reason for our trip - it is a wonderful tribute to those who died and for the City of New York
