Review: Hilton Times Square New York

This is a long overdue review of our stay at the Hilton Times Square New York. Hilton has quite a number of properties in New York and since it was our first time visiting New York, we opted to stay in the heat of the action at Times Square. Rooms were going for ~$250 a night during our stay so we decided to use points during this stay. Since we were staying for 4 nights, each room cost 42.5K points a night, instead of the usual 50K a night thanks to the AXON rewards for elite members.

We arrived around noon and the tiny lobby was crowded due to a number of checkouts. Once we did get to the front of the line, check-in was prompt and we were provided the usual breakfast coupons and internet passwords as Gold members. We were also told that we were upgraded to a corner room.

The room itself was nothing too spectacular but I guess was relatively large in New York standards thanks to the corner room upgrade.

The breakfast coupons were good for the full breakfast buffet which was appreciated considering that there are some Hiltons in the US that limits the breakfast to a continental selection. Tips however wasn't included and service during breakfast was spotty at best.

Overall, it was just an okay stay. We did stay at Times Square due to its location. Sure it was close to the subway, shopping, theaters and food but we did get overwhelmed by the crowd and people after the first few days. We would probably stay somewhere else on our next trip to New York city.
