After a $30 million renovation, One UN’s West Tower shines as a sophisticated destination for international diplomats, savvy business travelers and smart tourists. This Kevin Roche–designed black glass building rising between First and Second Avenues is directly across from one of the world’s great landmarks, the headquarters of the United Nations; it’s also just a quick walk from Grand Central Terminal and close to the Theater District, renowned restaurants and even Upper East Side shopping.
Bed & Bath
With 154 guestrooms and suites starting on the 29th floor of the 40-story building, every West Tower room offers panoramic views of the Midtown skyline or of Brooklyn and Queens over the East River through floor-to-ceiling windows. Modern and spacious, guestrooms start at almost 370 square feet and are done up in bronze and taupe for a relaxed yet sophisticated feel. State-of-the-art tech amenities include touchscreen environment and lighting controls, iPod docking stations, Nespresso machines and free WiFi. The granite bathrooms are big, with glass-encased showers and double vanities.
Your stay in the new West Tower includes access to the 30th-floor Skyline Club, which serves continental breakfast, all-day refreshments and evening cocktails and hors d’oeuvres — not to mention premium Manhattan views. The club has its own concierge available for everything from setting up wakeup calls to making reservations for a big night out. The hotel also has a full fitness center with top-notch equipment, an indoor tennis court and locker room facilities with saunas.
How to Get There
This Hotel is updated and in a great location for my stay in New York. The staff is amazing from the front desk staff, house keeping, and the Concierge service. They have security dogs at the entrance 24/7. It is easy to obtain a Taxi as well if needed.
The Millenium Hilton is a luxury property located near the United Nations Building, & a short walk to Grand Central Station and many other subway stops.
We were visiting our son in NY, and had a 3 day stay here.
Having booked a corner room with a view of the river, we were shown to our charming room, with great views.
Only when we had unpacked, did we start to notice some problems.
Dust on the table pedestal & window sills, children's finger prints on the window glass, luke warm shower water, the bathroom sink would not drain, some bulbs were burnt out, the bedside clock was broken and the TV was very dark & unwatchable at night.
All of these faults are fairly minor, but when added together became more serious!
A sign at the Reception says that they will make right any problems.
We reported the various problems to Susan at reception, & found her to be most helpful and empathetic.
All we wanted was for the problems in our room to be fixed, but instead we were given the remaining 2 nights in a 2-level suite.
She did try to "make things right"
The suite was very tired, with old brown carpeting, and there were cigarette burns on both bedside tables.
There were 2 small bathrooms, 1 with a shower, & the other with a bath tub.
Both had a single sink, & modern square fixtures.
Unfortunately there was no full length mirror, & no coffee cups beside the coffee maker. It was small details like these that made us think that no supervisors were giving final approval before guests were moved in to each room.
In both rooms the beds were super comfortable, although there was no night time turn down service. Different pillow types are available.
Security too was excellent. To gain access to any floor, the room key had to be swiped, & WIFI is free.
Some rooms are newly renovated, but many are not!
Our feeling was that this potential 5* hotel was being managed in a 'Hit & Miss' fashion, & didn't deserve a higher rating at this time.
business trip to nyc convenient location on east side. maintenance needed on facade. staff are fabulous and rooms are very clean. tech is spotty at times (wifi and cable service). fitness center recently updated.
