My wife and I are both in our late 20's, live in London (although we're both New Zealanders) and have now stayed at the Millennium Hilton twice in the last year. We stayed for 8 nights last Sept for the US Open tennis and then for 6 nights in the first week of May for a shopping trip (to take advantage of a public holiday in the UK). Based on conversations with friends and work colleague, I don't think anywhere offers better value - PROVIDED you want to stay in a hotel of at least 3 stars. The best news is that the Hilton is a 4 to 5 star hotel with no inconsistencies in the rooms - and this was a prime consideration as we didn't want to have to deal with the disappointment of pictures on the websites not reflecting reality, I guess this is the benefit of staying at the Hilton. The rooms were very roomy for NY (on our first visit we had to stay a couple of nights at Club Quarters Downtown because of the Republican Convention so we can make the contrast), the bed was big and comfortable and the plasma screen topped it all off. We stayed in a standard room with views over Ground Zero both times, on the 17th and 23rd floors respectively – the rooms and experience were identical. Our nightly rate was USD200 and USD280 respectively (booked direct through (---) as their rates are cheapest) - for a hotel in NY that is not a lot and I personally think this is exceptional value as you'll pay a similar amount to stay at the Pennsylvania near Madison Square garden and I don't think the two hotels compare (check out the reviews and real pictures on this site). There is easy access to everywhere via the metro. Just beware that if you're coming from JFK, because the hotel is downtown then the advertised "flat rate" of USD45 does not apply because that only gets you to midtown - this is not helped by the fact that a lot of taxi drivers and private car drivers do not know the downtown roads very well. We never had breakfast there as a) it was expensive and b) we’d rather eat out of the hotel so I can’t comment on it’s quality, but if you want a nice NY breakfast then go to The Kitchenette on 80 W. Broadway at Warren St.

We stayed in a parlor suite over the Memorial Day weekend for my daughter's 7th birthday. We were on the 53rd floor with a view over the World Trade Center site - would have liked a city view but the parlor suites don't have that view. The parlor suites are made out of 2 regular rooms with one room turned into a living room with a queen sleep sofa. They are nice since there is a full bath in each room - good for families or business travelers who need a meeting room and want to block off the bedroom. The bedroom had a king bed, desk and TV - nice but nothing super. The room was clean and service was good. The plasma TV is nice but nothing new anymore. Being a primarily business hotel, the TV lacked children's channels and there was no way to hook up a DVD player to it so our daughter could watch movies. The bed was fine but one night the sheets were a bit scratchy so it was hard to sleep.

We had a good package that included valet parking (at $45/day a good deal if you drive) and we got free breakfast with my husband's gold hilton membership. They had a nice breakfast buffet, but quite expensive unless you plan to really eat a lot. If our breakfast had not been free, we would not have eaten there but the food was good and the selections plentiful. You can also order off the menu.

The indoor pool on the 5th floor was very nice - the main reason we chose to stay there since our daughter loves to swim. The fitness facilities were also quite good for a hotel.

Transportation was convenient but if you plan to rely on taxis and want to get to mid or up town, it can take a while. It is best to know your way around since the cab drivers were inconsistent and sometimes seemed to be trying to make money out of their trips.

Overall, we had a really good experience and our daughter loved the various views from up high. We would stay there again.

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel in Downtown, New York. The rooms were really clean, the employees were all very helpful and nice. The view of where The Twin Towers used to be is breathtaking!! Also the view from the rooms of the New York skyline is really nice. It is within walking distance of Tribeca and other areas to explore. If you are looking for somewhere to stay that is close to Times Square....this is no the hotel for you....because Times Square is about 20 blocks or so, which is fine if you are training for a race or are a really good walker.

Stayed here May 26 to 29 with my girlfriend. Had read lots of positive reviews. We weren't disapointed. Room was ready on arrival. Although we had asked for king size and got queen. Went to front desk and had room changed right away. Beautifull views of course. Away from all the action of uptown but only 12 minutes by subway, station is footsteps away. Not even 5 minutes to canal street, Little Italy and Chinatown..... You must visit Little Italy, its worth the trip. Starbucks coffee right around the corner and stage door deli 1 block away, serve amazing breakfest (try the 4 egg western omelet.wow).. The room was spacious, very modern and clean. Bathroom was amazing, lots of space, pressure and hot water.
We checked in Thursday at around 7:00pm, checked out Sunday at 12:00 but were only charged 2 days of parking wich was cool cause at 45$/day, it gets expensive. When we checked out, they stored our bags til we left town wich was appreciated. Guys, if your wife likes shopping, Century 21 is a must, just accross the street but a little tip, be patient..The store is huge, full of brand names and really crowded, easy to lose your wife...Ladies, you can very easily spend 3-4 hours in there, mine almost did.
All in all, a wonderfull weekend in New York, but then again, how can you not a fun in New York..Soooooooo much to do. If you're looking for a broadway show, BROOKLYN, THE MUSICAL may not be well known but trust me, worth every penny...amazing voices.
All of the people we met and talked with, staff, store employees, policemen, were ALL VERY POLITE AND COURTIOUS, I WAS ACTUALLY IMPRESSED.
The city has changed lots over the years, very clean and alot safer than expected...
I highly recommend the millenium. A few minutes away from all the action
A definite 4 star at a 2-3 star price...

While we were anxious to go to NYC, after reading so many horror stories about hotels there, I was feeling a little stressed about finding an affordable, decent place to stay with our daughters and 4-year-old grandson. Since we were going over a long weekend (May 20-23, 2005), someone suggested the Financial District and so we booked ourselves at the Millenium Hilton at 55 Church Street, directly across from Ground Zero. It was wonderful in every respect. Super convenient to the subway--station was directly across the street and we were able to get to Central Park, Natural History Museum, Intrepid Museum and ferry to Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island without having to transfer subway lines. There are several places to get late night/early morning snacks (Starbucks, Burger King, deli, TGIFridays, Caruso's Pizza) within walking distance so you don't have to pay for hotel-rate food.

The staff was very helpful, especially the concierge who let us check our luggage upon arrival and also the day we departed. We had a large room with two double beds and a rollaway which easily accomodated the five of us. We were on the 11th floor, overlooking Ground Zero. The room was very upscale, IMMACULATE, wide screen TV...all the amenities. Nice pool and fitness center on 5th floor which we also enjoyed. And the weekend rate was only $215/night as opposed to hotels in midtown Manhatten that raise their rates on Friday and Saturday. Highly, highly recommend for families who come on the weekend for its convenience, quality of service, exceptional value, and 4-star rooms. I can't think of one complaint!
