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
The hotel has been improved a lot in the past 2 years since Hilton took over. The staff is well trained and very helpful. The breakfast now offers a great variety of fresh fruit, pastries, egg, cheese and fresh coffee. The hotel is in the safest location in probably the whole city since the UN building is just cross the street. I highly recommend it for business or family vacation as well.
I want to compliment the reservations manager of this hotel, PATRICK GOAD, for excellent customer service.
We made a reservation at this hotel through Trip Advisor, However when I was asked for payment, the company that actually made the reservation was a company called Cancelon.
After I made the reservation, I immediately called and cancelled because I booked the wrong Hiton Hotel. Even though I cancelled within minutes, Cancelon charged me a $186 cancellation fee.
I disputed this charge through Trip Advisor, Cancelon and American Express. But my disputes were denied. However when I contacted Patrick Goad at the hotel, he called Cancelon and got them to refund my $186. Thanks Patrick
We ended up staying at the Hilton Garden Inn on 54th which was great.
I was stuck at Laguardia airport after a combination of errors and weather ended up causing my flight to cancel. Our company travel service found a room for me at the Millennium Hilton at the UN plaza. I checked in late after a long day and was happy to find out the kitchen was still serving. I had a nice chopped salad with chicken that satisfied my hunger. The bartender was cordial and provided good service. My room was on the 35th floor and had nice views of the city. The room was clean and quiet and I woke up rested.
