Whether you’re a first-time visitor or a frequenter of the Big Apple, the spectacular Hilton New York Grand Central is the unique Midtown Manhattan retreat dreams are made of! And with Hilton having just been named Logo’s most “out and proud brand” of 2017, it is essential for the LGBT community to get in on the action and check out all this wonderful property has to offer.
Location and History
Nestled on the banks of the East River in Manhattan—just two subway stops from the buzz of Times Square—proudly stands the historic Hilton New York Grand Central hotel. Located in the residential district dubbed Tudor City in the late 1920s, merely steps away from landmarks such as the Chrysler Building, the United Nations, and Grand Central Station, the 20-story Neo-Gothic structure was originally christened the Hotel Tudor in 1931, the neighborhood’s only transient hotel. Although recently renovated and renamed as a member of the Hilton family of hotels, the property still boasts in its historic charm, all while reflecting the desires and needs of the twenty-first century traveler.
Services and Accommodations
From the moment guests step into the elegantly recessed lobby of the Hilton New York Grand Central, it’s easy to see why it’s THE choice amongst choices.
Displaying a rich conglomeration of modern décor and vintage appeal that spans from its entrance to the uppermost floor, the property also prides itself on hospitality services incomparable to any other NYC hotel experience. Complete with all the necessary conveniences and accommodations (concierge services, valet parking, fully equipped fitness center, luggage hold, international currency exchange, up-to-date business amenities, multilingual staff, etc.), not to mention its outstanding level of accessibility, the Hilton New York Grand Central is certain to exceed anyone’s expectations.
