The name alone might conjure up images of a generic chain hotel, but the Hilton Times Square, built in 2000 to compete with the area’s boutique lodging options, is actually a modern and sophisticated option. Significantly less monolithic than the bland, big-box Hilton on Sixth Avenue, this property claims its 460 spotless rooms are the “largest standard size rooms in midtown,” and it’s probably true: There’s enough space in each for an honest-to-goodness seating area, not merely a chair stuffed into the corner. The Hilton corporate influence is still present—see the unimaginative sandy tones that permeate the rooms—but the 21st-floor sky lobby is especially stylish, with ultra-bold-print carpets underneath neutral, mod comfy chairs. Plus, since all the rooms are at least that high up, the views can be great, especially in those facing the Empire State Building. And while the location across from the Port Authority is less than elegant, once you’re up in your room, the cacophony fades more than enough to make this a solid pick, especially for young couples cashing in on rates that are cheaper than the bona fide boutique hotels nearby.


Many Times Square hotels have sky lobbies, but this one’s is the highest, which means that the views from many rooms, which go up to the 44th floor, are excellent.

Its 42nd Street location is loud and frenzied, though first-time tourists likely won’t mind being in the middle of it all.
