HOTEL REVIEW | Hilton Times Square

Gloriously central and fabulously touristic, the Hilton Time Square is the perfect place to book if you re staying in New York for the first time.

One of the things you ll find if you re staying in Manhattan is that hotel rooms come in two sizes. Small and extra small that is unless you re staying at the Hilton near Times Square. Some may argue that the location is too conventional and too safe and that the real New York happens several blocks away, but if you re a Big Apple novice and you re looking for a friendly place in a city of over 8 million people, the Hilton is the perfect choice. The spacious rooms come with all expected standards, including superfast internet connection across all of their 460 rooms. Standard rooms which are 330 square feet start on the 23rd floor up until the 32nd from the 33rd Hilton has even larger standard rooms which are 360 sq ft, which is large by Manhattan standards.

In your room you ll find a gorgeously comfortable bed and although the hotel offers different types of pillows you probably won t need them. The set up is perfect. The staff have the typical Hilton-Nothing-Is-Too-Much-Trouble and every question asked is answered with a friendly smile from the doormen to the housekeeping.

Apart from the well appointed, slick rooms, you ll notice the oversize picture window which offers some incredible views of the iconic New York skyline and from some rooms you can even catch a glimpse of the famous Time Square New Year s Eve glitter ball.
