North America’s largest Hilton Garden Inn opened in New York City in January. The Hilton Garden Inn New York/Central Park South-Midtown West is five blocks south of Central Park and Columbus Circle, and is within blocks of most subway lines. The hotel has two meeting rooms with a total of 1,300 square feet of space. The 330-sq.-ft. Carnegie room can accommodate 16, and the 620-sq.-ft. Sullivan room can hold 20-40 people depending on setup. Wi-Fi is free throughout the property, and the business center is open 24 hours. Audiovisual equipment is available to rent.
There are 401 guest rooms in the hotel, and all have flat-screen TVs and work desks. The fitness center is open 24 hours. The hotel is a mile and a half from Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, and its prime location makes it a draw for groups. It is walking distance to some of New York City’s most famous attractions, such as Times Square, Broadway, Museum of Modern Art, Rockefeller Center, Carnegie Hall (and the adjacent Carnegie Deli) and Central Park Zoo, and is around the corner from Ed Sullivan Theater, the current home of “The Late Show with David Letterman.”
