Midtown West, Manhattan, New York City

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Clean, modern rooms with flat-screen TVs
  • Microwaves and mini-fridges
  • Some rooms have views of the Empire State building
  • Within walking distance of the Empire State building, flagship Macy's store, and Madison Square Garden
  • Near Penn Station and multiple subway lines
  • 24-hour fitness and business centers
  • Great American Grill serving cooked-to-order breakfast
  • 24-hour Pavilion Pantry
  • Free coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and afternoon cookies
  • Lobby bar
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Rooms ending in "02" are the smallest
  • Rooms are on the small side (common in NYC)
  • Wait for elevators can be long

Bottom Line

Those looking for a clean mid-range chain hotel right around the corner from the Empire State building can't do much better than this Hilton Garden Inn. Rates are affordable (for New York, at least) and the location is extremely convenient for seeing the sights -- the flagship Macy's store, Madison Square Garden, and multiple subway lines are also within easy walking distance. Just note that rooms ending in "02" are the smallest, so steer clear if you want a bit more space. Some of the city-view rooms have great views of the Empire State building, and all rooms have the microwaves and mini-fridges that are standard for the chain (and particularly helpful for saving money on food in pricey New York City).

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Right in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, within walking distance of the Empire State Building and the Macy's flagship at Herald Square

The hotel's location is one of its biggest draws. It's just a block from the Empire State Building, the Macy's at Herald Square, and several subway lines. It's also a short walk to the transportation hub of Penn Station, with LIRR, NJ Transit, and Amtrak service.

The hotel also sits in the unofficial area of Midtown Manhattan known as Koreatown, surrounded by tons of Asian restaurants and karaoke joints. It's not hard to find good Korean BBQ or bars in the area, and unlike other business districts or areas of Midtown, the neighborhood doesn't shut down at midnight.

  • 17-minute drive to LaGuardia Airport
  • 26-minute drive to JFK Airport
  • 5-minute walk to the Empire State Building
  • 2-minute walk Herald Square
  • 2-minute walk to the B, D, F, and M lines; or the N, Q, and R lines
  • 4-minute drive or 8-minute subway ride Rockefeller Center
  • 5-minute walk to Bryant Park
  • 6-minute walk to Times Square
  • 6-minute walk to Penn Station, with Amtrak or commuter train lines, and A, C, or E subway lines
  • 6-minute walk to Madison Square Garden
  • 6-minute drive or 9-minute subway ride to Central Park
  • 10-minute drive to the Metropolitan Museum of Art
