"I recently took a weekend trip to New York City and wanted to truly experience life in the big apple. There isn’t a better way to experience all New York City has to offer than to stay at one of the most popular attractions, Times Square! "
"I was able to use points I’ve saved up from previous trips to stay at the Hilton Times Square, which is right in the middle of all the action! Not only was the hotel exquisite, but there was certainly plenty to do within walking distance of the hotel as well."

The rooms are only above the 23rd floor, which helps to minimize any street noise. We were on the 38th floor and had a direct view of where the ball drops on New Year’s Eve. We didn’t hear any noise from the ground, which is great for those who are light sleepers and want a quiet room.
The room was very large for a New York City hotel. The bathrooms looked like they were recently remodeled and the room had an “elegant charm” to it that was different from the other Hilton’s I’ve stayed at.
The best amenity of the hotel has to be the bar/restaurant, which offers a phenomenal view of the city. They have an award winning breakfast, which is free for those who have free breakfast vouchers or are diamond members.
It was nice to start our day by enjoying the skyline of the city we were about to explore! In the evening, we enjoyed a drink at the bar to take in the sights before heading out for a night on the town.
The concierge was very knowledgeable and gave us great recommendations for night life. They also helped us get tickets to a show that was said to be sold out for a fraction of the face value! They truly went above and beyond to make sure that we made the most of our stay in NYC!
This hotel, like most in Times Square, is extremely expensive and I wouldn’t have been able to afford this without my past guest points.
The restaurant and bar are also very expensive, even when compared to regular New York City prices. The other con I want to point out is the fitness center was very small for a hotel, so those that need to exercise on their trip (for medical reasons) should be aware of this.
There also wasn’t a pool for those that look forward to the hotel pool on your vacation. Besides for these cons, I highly recommend staying at the Hilton Times Square on your next trip to New York City!
