Hilton Times Square

234 W. 42nd St., between 7th and 8th Aves., , New York, New York 10036, USA

Jessica Colley Clarke

A glass-and-steel skyscraper atop a 335,000-square-foot retail complex (that includes a movie theater and Madame Tussauds Wax Museum), the Hilton Times Square towers 44 stories above Manhattan. Panoramic views of the city skyline and the Hudson River are a nice feature, but the Times Square location can be chaotic and the property lacks character.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Expect annoying nickel-and-dime charges, from expensive internet connections to overpriced food and drink.

room

With an average size of 330-square feet, rooms are more spacious than nearby options at this price. Rooms start on the 23rd floor, which generally equals a quiet stay. All rooms have work desks with ergonomic chairs and big windows that open enough to let in fresh air.

This property offers “Pure Allergy” rooms that are designed with improved air quality for guests with allergies or asthma.

bathroom

With shower/tub combos and bathrobes, bathrooms are clean and functional.

lobby

Neutral-colored marble and wood panel walls decorate the lobby. The bright space has a large front desk and plenty of space to lounge.

dining

Located 21 stories above Times Square, the restaurant has large windows with city skyline views (booths by the window are the best tables). The restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch.

drinking

The Pinnacle Bar serves drinks on the lobby level. It's what you imagine a Hilton lobby bar might be.

LOCATION

Getting Around

Located in Times Square, this hotel has the theater district and attractions of midtown Manhattan on its doorstep. Central Park is about a 20-minute walk away. Subway access is nearby with the A, C, and E trains at 42nd Street/8th Avenue and the 1, 2, and 3 trains at 42nd Street/7th Avenue. Taxis and Uber are widely available, but traffic congestion is a common problem.

Restaurants

Set in a landmark building, The Lambs Club (7-minute walk) is an Art Deco-inspired restaurant from Chef Geoffrey Zakarian that is known for excellent oysters and dry aged ribeye steaks. In a neighborhood of chain restaurants, Tavola (9-minute walk) is a refreshing sight—this rustic Italian restaurant has two wood-burning ovens and a devoted following of Italian expats. According to New Yorkers, Shake Shack (4-minute walk) is the place for a quick and reliable burger and fries.

Bars

Rum House (9-minute walk) is a candlelit bar known for its quality execution of classic cocktails. The Houndstooth Pub (4-minute walk) is a spacious bar with lots of seating and TVs.

WHY WE LIKE IT

Skyline views from the restaurant and rooms are one of the hotel’s best features. The location is ideal for Times Square entertainment and is convenient for public transportation.
