Occupying a gleaming glass tower built in 2009, West 57th Street by Hilton Club combines up-to-the-minute amenities, gracious service, and a prime location just 2 blocks south of Central Park. With a small lobby and just 161 spacious studios and suites on 28 floors, this upscale hotel is a welcome retreat from the bustle of surrounding Midtown, where many of New York's most popular attractions are just a stone's throw away.
Step outside, and you're less than a block from Carnegie Hall. For art aficionados, the Museum of Modern Art's masterpieces are about a 5-minute walk from the hotel. And if shopping is your bag, Fifth Avenue's fashionable flagship stores and boutiques beckon less than 5 minutes away. To make your visit to the Big Apple complete, take in a blockbuster Broadway show: Times Square is a 15-minute stroll from the hotel, and you'll encounter a host of theaters along the way.
To prepare you for a day in the city, West 57th Street by Hilton Club serves a complimentary continental breakfast each morning. Enjoy yogurt, fresh fruit, and freshly baked muffins in the club lounge. The hotel does not offer lunch or dinner, but the neighborhood is host to numerous restaurants. A half-block away, the Russian Tea Room satisfies a range of palates, whether your taste runs to caviar and champagne or borscht and beef Stroganoff.
There's no need to feel guilty about overindulging: You can always burn off calories in the hotel's Precor fitness room. If the day is drizzling, the hotel provides an umbrella.
The relaxation continues when you retire to your studio or suite, where beds are dressed with pillowtop mattresses and luxury linens. You can check email with complimentary wireless Internet access, kick back on the patio, or unwind with a movie on the LCD TV. An iHome clock radio with iPod dock sits bedside. A kitchenette with microwave is also available in room. And you'll awaken to glorious views of the city from floor-to-ceiling windows.
