The moment you experience the cozy lounge spaces and wood accents of the Hilton's modern and sophisticated lobby, you realize this isn't your run-of-the-mill chain hotel. Room perks include pillow-top mattresses, down comforters, and spacious work desks. The rooms located at the Lofts on 5th Avenue, a boutique hotel within the hotel, offer extra-high ceilings and Frette linens; some have whirlpool tubs. An outdoor terrace off the New Leaf lounge is furnished like a comfy living room and has a fire pit. You can't beat the location: the trolley whizzes by, the convention center is across the street, and nightlife and restaurants are just outside your door.
