"Great small hotel in mid-town. "
The Hilton Garden Inn Mid-town Manhattan is a small hotel close to restaurants, subway, Rockefeller Plaza, Fifth Ave., Central Park, Madison Ave., St. Patrick's Cathedral, and the United Nations. The building itself is tall and narrow, with only 8 rooms on each of 28 floors. The lobby always had welcoming snacks and beverages available. There are a few high-top tables in a small courtyard at the entry where you can sit and "people watch" or just relax with the daily USA newspaper provided in the lobby. The rooms are well appointed with beautiful bedding, n flat screen TV, complimentary free WiFi, convenient outlets for plugging in devices, reading lights, microwave, refrigerator, Kureg coffee pot (coffee provided), and hairdryer. The room we stayed in was a handicap accessible room which also meant a very roomy bathroom with a large walk-in shower. However, there was a pedestal sink of which I am not a fan, since they provide no storage or counter space. The room overlooked the city which was a beautiful view at night. There is a restaurant in the hotel, but we did not use that at all. There are lots of small neighborhood restaurants, delis, luncheonets, etc. within a block or two of the hotel. Staff was always pleasant and helpful. Finding a great hotel for less than $180 a night in Manhattan is a challenge, but Hilton Garden Inn certainly was a bargain at $172 with all the necessary amenities as well as a great convenient location. I would highly recommend HGI.
