New York Hilton Midtown , the hotel with the largest event space footprint in New York City, reopened its doors recently. The iconic 1,878-room hotel, owned by Park Hotels & Resorts, is welcoming back guests with celebratory experiences and inviting event planners to host their next gathering with special offers.

The hotel boasts the largest fitness center in Manhattan with Peloton bikes, perfect for keeping up with any at-home fitness routine on the road, and is pet-friendly, welcoming new fur-legged members of the family. To provide guests with an added peace of mind, new elevated cleanliness and disinfection processes and Team Member training have been developed with Reckitt, maker of Lysol and Dettol, to help New York Hilton Midtown guests enjoy an even cleaner and safer stay from check-in to check-out. 

"Reopening the doors of the New York Hilton Midtown is another step in the recovery of the great city of New York," said New York Hilton Midtown general manager, Diarmuid Dwyer. "Our team has used this time to reinvent our customer and guest experiences, and we are excited to welcome guests back to the hotel and the city." 


To welcome back guests and the neighborhood, New York Hilton Midtown is offering a number of surprise and delight performances throughout the week in its lobby. New Yorkers are invited to walk the Hilton "Blue Carpet" into the hotel to hear live music from DJs, subway performers, choirs and more.


With the city re-energized, traditional city events, like the Thanksgiving Day Parade, are expected to return this fall. Located directly on the parade route at the corner of 54th and 6 th Avenue, New York Hilton Midtown offers several comfortable rooms at the premier vantage point for watching the 95 th annual parade. Guests can watch the balloons pass by while enjoying breakfast and a warm cup of cocoa from the comfort of their hotel room. For more information, email ThanksgivingHiltonNYC@Hilton.com.


From the largest ballroom in the city to 47 suites, New York Hilton Midtown is the ideal backdrop for brainstorming sessions, intimate networking receptions, or large-scale events. As attendees return to New York City for face-to-face experiences, New York Hilton Midtown has redefined and rebranded its Event Experience Team to serve the 150,000 square feet of event space. The property has reinvented what is known as the traditional banquet and is focused on driving one-of-a-kind experiences for gatherings and events of all sizes.
