Terrific family vacation.

I read positive reviews on the Double tree Hilton Metropolitan. I am so happy this is the hotel I booked. We stayed one night to sight see in the city. The warm chocolate chip cookie was a yummy treat upon arrival. I also thought this hotel was in a great location. Walking distance to many sights and shopping. The subway is directly across the street! The Metro Cafe is next door and open late friendly staff great for late food and drink.

One night's stay

The hotel was fine for the price. The room was small but not really a problem if you are just needing it to sleep in. The bar staff were not particularly friendly but a for a place to sleep only, i would return.

Nice location, horrible front desk service

All staff at front desk are very rude! This is the worst check in experience in my life! I had to sit in the hall room for more than three hours to wait for an available room. They kept telling me there is no room available, but people came after me all checked in successfully! I went to ask the lady and her attitude is extremely rude! She was kind of warning me I told you! Your room is not available! This hotel destroyed Hilton ' s image in my mind. I will never ever book Double Tree and all other Hilton ' s hotels again in the future!

Excellent

I'm a New Yorker now residing in another state. I go back home twice a year, this hotel has been the best one to date. It's perfectly located, the subway is around 15 steps next to the hotel. Lots of places to eat nearby. The hotel is clean, comfortable, the staff is extremely friendly, and has free wifi. I plan on staying here again when I go back in September. Have no doubts when booking this doubletree.

Avoid at all costs

Terrible check-in service. A friend was with me waiting for me to check in, and he (independently) also said he had never seen such rude and crude check-in service before. It was clear that the lady did not want to be there. Very noisy hotel throughout the night. Bathroom had peeling paint and dirt where the bath joined the wall. Very cheap and minimal furniture. I travel a lot, but this was close to the worst hotel I stayed in, in a major city.

Great location for the price. Many restaurants nearby and easy to buy whatever you may need for the room. Will use again next year for the business meeting.

complain

The night before my checkput I requested a cab to arrive at 3am. I even called at 2am to remind the staff but when I came to the lobby the taxi didnt arrive and we had to take a street cab. My second complain is that we bought a city tour with the company cityexperts. This included a night and day tour. We also bought 2 tickets to Les miserables with the concierge that cost $139.99. The actual cost was $77 with a difference of $63. When we complained to Leslie a Puerto rican girl, she said she was going to call the company and they offered to return $15 from each ticket we bought. We did not accept because we considered it to be a robbery. We understand the company has to gain a profit, but this is considered excessive. This is going to be reported to NYC consumer affair public office. We were 2 friends travelling and choosing Doubletree by Hilton to feel secure and safe. I am a Hilton cardholder of Hilton Honor, and have been in other locations but this has been the worse experience.
