I'm in New York almost every week and this is my go-to hotel due to its central location and proximity to a wide range of restaurants (from low-end pizza to high end steak joints) within a few blocks and transportation modes (Grand Central-Rail, Bus, Taxi, Feet). The hotel staff is very personable and eagerly assist all hotel guests, especially those...

We had a lovely weekend stay at the Hilton in Tudor City. Our room was spacious with a charming balcony overlooking Tudor City and views to the river and UN.

Jose the doorman will always greet you with a friendly smile and welcome you to the hotel in style. Your experience continues with a great front desk staff as well. As cold as the weather has been, Jose always maintained a welcoming attitude.

We price lined this room for 100 / night on a Saturday night. We got a great deal for this 4 star hotel. In a safe location near the UN and in midtown near subways and a short cab ride anywhere in Manhattan. I guess for this price they didn't give us the best room. We got a small room...

Great Location Friendly Staff rooms were a bit small. Very good pricing for the area convenient to trains. Make sue that you have cash to tip the door men or you will feel their coolness. But one bad apple shouldn't scare you away.

My first hotel in NYC with a balcony complete with patio furniture. I'm sure it would've been great if it wasn't a rainy day in December. Nice location, a short walk from Grand Central and a few restaurants near by, yet surprisingly quiet.

Good restaurants nearby. Far enough removed from the noise of Time Square but close enough for a quick walk. Everything was fine during my stay. I spent very little time at the hotel over the weekend, but it was a perfect pied-à-terre to catch a few hours' rest.

Perfect location for happy days in New York. A lot of diners restaurants for breakfast in the area. Good room cleaning, both kiosk Food and restaurant Food in the hotel. Use airport bus (Go) when arrive and departure, not pirate taxi or Yellow cab. Bus is cheap, 20 USD pr passenger each way.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
