Recently, I did a staycation at DoubleTree by Hilton Times Square West. Located at 350 West 40th Street, it’s the perfect hotel for proximity to Times Square and Hell’s Kitchen. The lobby has a very art deco feel with theater-inspired artwork and lighting. The 37-story hotel has 612 rooms along with a state-of the art fitness center, meeting and banquet facilities, and a business center.
When I checked in, I received a warm DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookie, a signature element for the hotel brand, along with a candy tray as a special welcome. My room included a king-size bed, a small sofa, a closet, a work station, a flat screen TV, and a modern bathroom with Crabtree & Evelyn products. It also had theater-inspired photographs on the wall and a coffee maker. It’s certainly a comfortable setup. I love how new the furniture and decor looks. The hotel just joined the Times Square area in February 2017.
Additionally, the staff is attentive, both at the front desk and in the housekeeping area. Everyone is helpful and ready to assist you with any questions or needs that you might have. It’s a nice addition to the Times Square area for tourists and locals alike. My weekend staycation experience was definitely enjoyable!
