Laurent has stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn Times Square Central conveniently located in Manhattan and wanted us to look back on her experience.

So I will let her present her experience and perhaps make us want to stay there too. 🙂

Meanwhile I will remind, if you also want to share your tips, you can do so by taking this article (see link here) as a template and send it to me by email.

Where is the Hilton Garden Inn Times Square Central?

This hotel is located in Manhattan on 42nd street and between 6th Avenue and Broadway, that is to say in the heart of New York’s agitation par excellence: Times Square.

To give you an idea, the hotel is less than 1300ft from the TKTS steps,  500ft from Bryant Park, Madison Square Garden half a mile and less then half a mile from Grand Central … So you understand that this is an exceptional location where restaurants and shops abound.

What benefits does the Hilton Garden Inn Times Square Central have?

At the lobby, there is a restaurant (pizzeria type) where you can dine in the evening or have breakfast (personally our offer did not include breakfast). At this level, the Hilton has installed 2 computers with a free access printer and even an ATM.

You should know that the hotel was fully renovated (deco design and refined) and reopened in September 2014.

Heating (for us was the period February-March) is effective.

We had a room for 4 of us, with 2 queen beds with excellent comfort. The closet space was sufficient (wardrobe, chest of drawers).

 

We were on the 30th floor (of 36) with a diagonal view of the Walgreens Times Square.

What are the rates at the Hilton Garden Inn Times Square Central?

So compared to the prices, do not forget the special location of this hotel, which can justify prices ranging from 140 to $ 250 / night depending on the time and for a 2 bedroom with a double bed

 

But it could seem really pricey at the time of booking! That said, sometimes there are accommodation coupon sites according to the number of selected nights.

Conclusion

I think the Hilton Garden Inn Times Square Central is a real good plan with an unbeatable location, rooms with complete service and excellent bedding, obviously with above average prices, but justified by the very recent renovation of the hotel.

I find that for a first trip to New York and the proximity to Times Square, the Hilton is a good compromise.
