The New York Hilton Midtown Hotel is the best business hotel to be found in New York City. The Hilton is well equipped to handle hundreds of meetings that are hosted each year. Some rooms are extremely attractive and modern, while others are still dated with classic furniture.

The Hilton hotel has 1980 rooms, 45 floors, and hundreds of important conferences are organized each year. With 1,980 rooms, the Hilton is the largest New York City hotel. There are silent rooms on the upper floors, served by slow lifts, including a lobby and attractive bar. In many ways, Hilton is a microcosm of the city itself: crowded and cash-driven.

As the hotel hosts hundreds of conferences each year, Hilton is strongly relying on business travellers. A quarter of its guests are corporate groups. Individual business travellers represent a healthy part of the remaining 75 percent.

The hotel is located in downtown Manhattan, between Midtown West and Midtown East. The surrounding area is a business destination but many important sites, including Times Square and Central Park, are within a walking distance.

Surrounded by tall office buildings, the Hilton is just a dozen blocks from one of the world's most intersections crowded in 42nd Street and Broadway in the heart of Times Square. Even though it is technically in the theatre district, there is a corporate feeling in the area. More sidewalks in the area are tiled and nearby buildings feature open-air logs suitable for cigarette breaks and outdoor dining.

The neighbourhood becomes quieter at night. Still, security is not a problem. If you are visiting New York for fun, the Hilton is centrally located - 10 minutes to Midtown's most popular sites. MOMA is just down the road. Carnegie Hall, the Rockefeller Center, and most Broadway theatres are five to ten blocks. Central Park is five blocks North and is easily accessible.

The hotel is just 30 to 90 minutes from three airports. New York City has three nearby airports - JFK, LaGuardia and Newark (New Jersey). Getting into town by JFK or La Guardia is usually cheaper than by Newark, but travel times are heavily dependent on the time of day and traffic conditions. From JFK, a taxi in Manhattan costs a lump sum and takes about an hour on average. From LaGuardia, a taxi ride in Midtown Manhattan can take 30 minutes if the traffic is light, three times that if it's bad. Rides from Newark can take more than 90 minutes.

Those who are looking to save some money can use the privately owned shuttle buses that are available at all three airports. For more information about shuttles, go to the Super Shuttle or the New York Airport Service. Public transport is also available for a minimum of $ 7 per person, but travel can take up to two hours and involve a lot of bagging up and down the stairs.

Rooms are in good size and attractive in New York. The renovated rooms are much more modern, while the old rooms are old.

Classic rooms are dated. Deluxe rooms are slightly more modern, with large headboards and elegant bathrooms. Premier rooms are the newest and most beautiful, with modern ferns no coffee maker or mini bar. Premier rooms have a mini-fridge.

Upgrading to an executive room or a suite comes along with a complimentary breakfast and coffee during the day, as well as additional features like a bathrobe and bottled water. Suites also feature a spacious living area with large furniture.

The Hilton means business. As a host of hundreds of conferences each year, the hotel knows that it buys its bread and has acted accordingly - boasting over 150,000 square feet of meeting space on the property.

There is a fitness centre. It contains dozens of machines of all kinds, in addition to various free weights, personal trainer, and personal television screens for cardio machines.

Wi-Fi is fast and reliable throughout the property but costs a daily charge.
