Took my parents to NYC and we stayed at this hotel. Staff were personable, helpful, and positive. We rented a motorized scooter for my mom and they helped facilitate the return since we had to fly out before the scooter company came to pick up.||Our room was great for the price we paid. It was always clean and restocked on time whenever we requested that they clean our room. We also love the free breakfast buffet and the rotating menu of hot items. I also loved the gym downstairs despite it being small. It had functioning machines, free weights, ample space to do yoga, and even a cable machine.||Highly recommend, will consider staying again when I'm back in the city.

Don’t be fooled by all the good reviews like I was. The location is perfect because it is so close to Grand Central, but that is about how good it gets. The actual hotel is very basic and old. No upgrades available for a Gold Hilton Member (you just get a bottle of water lol). You will hear your neighbors talking or slamming their doors shut. Rooms are tight and the toilet is facing the bed, which is a turn off. The queen size bed is spacious and comfortable though. They were in the middle of replacing all their mattresses with new ones when I was there. There is a good sized TV in the room. Only 4 pillows provided and they were way too soft. One of the main reasons why I booked this hotel was because of the Breakfast buffet, but it is also very poor to average. They make good bacon and sausage patties, but that’s about all I liked. They constantly run out of food/utensils/juice/milk and they do not have enough staff to refill quickly. Or maybe they don’t care to. They also don’t have enough workers to keep this food area clean. Floors are always sticky from spilled juices. Counters dirty with scraps of food. They also advertise a 24/7 tea and coffee station, but then the hot water was empty with and no one in the kitchen to replace it. A very disappointing stay overall and I will not be coming back.
