If you're thinking of staying at the really large corporate Mausoleum of a Hilton find out first if they have any availability here because this place was truly a gem so different than the larger Hilton which is only two blocks away. The quality of the rooms the quality of the service the quality of the location it's all an upgrade from the other one so find out if they have space here first. Or ask for an upgrade only they don't think of it as an upgrade they think of it as like a poor relation but truth is this is a far nicer, better rate and more hospitable atmosphere then the mega hotel of Hilton properties.

Staff: Very friendly and responsive. I did have two issues at the hotel and the made BOTH of them right. The first was the A/C wasn't working, but boy was it working when I got back later that day. Second was a fire alarm went off at 1:30am, they evacuated everyone, but they comped us for the night. Room: They are old rooms, it is an OLD building. Mine was clean. I did not have the issues that others had. Bar Manager/Bar: Great cocktails! Bar manager is knowledgeable and friendly. Location: You actually can't get much better if you want to be in the center of Union Square with all of the shopping and attractions. Summary: MY reason for the 3 star room rating is for business travel, without a desk, not ideal. Also, no views, in fact, my room faced a wall.
