The sleek, modern facade of this 44-story building makes it a notable Times Square attraction, and many of its 460 rooms look out over vibrant Times Square, the New York City skyline and the Hudson River. Visit Pinnacle Bar in the lobby for coffee, cocktails and other delectable beverages, and enjoy innovative, Zagat-rated fare at Restaurant Above, which overlooks the iconic digital screens and billboards below. Hilton Hotels & Resorts have been wowing guests since 1919, and the Hilton Times Square houses 24-hour business and fitness centers, plus modern event spaces and a freshly revitalized lobby.

Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum, Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum, Radio City Music Hall and the 24/7 nexus of Times Square are all nearby. Shoppers can give their credit cards a workout by hitting the shops along Fifth Avenue, and cuisine-lovers can dine on Restaurant Row before taking in a musical at one of the Broadway theaters surrounding the hotel.

Fathers Day Gift

Took my husband here for a Fathers Day gift. Its in a great location. From the room we could see down to 42nd street and the view from the 28th floor was spectacular. We took in a Broadway play and had dinner nearby. All in all, a great gift.

Perfect time.

All went well from check-in 3 hours early with no hassle to calling a private limo for our trip back to the airport for only $2.00 more than a cab ride. Everyone was very accommodating.

Great Times Square area location

The hotel appears to be recently remodeled. The room was clean and fresh, and the staff was great. You cannot beat this location to be near Times Square and the Theater District.

Must Stay Here When You're in NYC

This hotel had the perfect location, just steps away from everything. It has the most comfortable bed and the room was quite spacious and clean. For what I paid for, I would say it was definitely worth it. I would recommend people to stay here.

Times Square Location Was Perfect!

Check in was fast. They gave us a room on the 36th floor with a view of 42 Street. Granted you have to look straight down to get a glimpse but you can see it. Times Square lights at night are spectacular from the room! We also had a view of the Hudson River. Coffee maker in room. Had to call & request bathrobes and a couple of extra toiletries and they were delivered within 10 minutes. Beds & pillows are extremely comfortable and gave us a great nights sleep every night! Lobby is not on street level so it seemed strange going in at first. Only a bellman is there. Lobby is higher up and is quite small with the front desk on one side and an open lounge/restaurant on the other side with the space being narrow. Room service for breakfast was delicious and delivered within 20 minutes as stated. Staff from front desk to concierge to housekeeping are pleasant & friendly and greet you both coming and going. Would definitely return to the Hilton at Times Square!!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

I thought this was the city that never sleeps but we found many places right outside the hotel on 42nd street closed early! The wax museum was closed at 6pm. Many brand name shops were closed by 9 and 10 pm. Make reservations for restaurants to guarantee a table. Planning is everything in New York if you want to see all the tourist sites.

1st timer NYC

Great. Location was perfect for easy walk to Macy,s, Rockefeller Center, Radio City, broadway shows, Times Square, Empire State Building, and several other tourist attractions. Staff was very helpful and in partcular the doormen. Lots of helpful tips. Room was very clean and comfortable with great shower (I am 6'4" and did not have to bend over. If you like people watching this is place to stay. Plenty of restaurants and shops. Get a subway pass and use it. Only took 20 minutes from hotel to CitiPark for a Mets game. Take the bus tour (where you sit on top) with copy of city map. These are on off so if you decide not to get off but see later you know where you are in relation to hotel. Use hotel for transportation to airport. Its about same as cab but a lot more comfortable and drivers are fun. Don't know if they will pick you but I suspect they would if make arrangements in advance. If you want to be near Times Square area would heartily reccomend this hotel.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Be careful of passes you pay for tourist attractions in advance. Its crowded in NYC and seeing things takes a lot more time than you think. Just to get into ground zero, with all the security) took almost 40 minutes.
