Good choice.

We paid $219/night and stayed for 8 nights. The room was older, but clean. Large room, large bathroom. My husband thought the king size bed was too firm, I didn't have any problems with it. We were on the 32nd floor. The view was amazing--Chrysler building right outside the window and the Empire State Building was down the way. Ice had to be delivered by room service--but we weren't charged on our bill for it. The lounge was relaxing, although expensive--nice for a quiet drink at the end of a long day. We didn't try the restaurant. We went to the pool once--beautiful. Big change rooms, and they have a bathing suit dryer..try it, it's nice not to have a wet suit dripping in your bath tub. Staff was always friendly and helpful. Room was always clean when we returned at the end of the day. Lots of security and trained dogs around the hotel due to the delegates of the United Nations. Note: Do not go into the stairwell to walk down to the main floor. My husband tried, and couldn't get out at the bottom. He had to walk 29 flights back UP to find a door that would open to let him out. Excellent location. A few blocks from Grand Central Station where you can eat or catch the subway. John's diner is one block west--we ended up eating breakfast there every day...quick, reasonably priced, and will keep you full till lunch time. The hotel had internet, but it was expensive ($10 for 30 minutes). There is a small convenience store (with a yellow awning)just west of John's diner that has computors. You buy a code and can use it over several visits--much cheaper. Second Ave had: pubs, grocery stores, quick restaurants, formal restaurants, and a pharmacy--everything is close by. We walked to Broadway (approx 20 minutes), but I believe there is a shuttle from Grand Central Station to Broadway and there are always taxis. Overall, it was a good choice for us. We felt safe and were well situated to walk to places or access the subway. In other cities, you might expect a fancier room for $219/night, but in New York, I think that we did pretty good. Hope my reivew was helpful.

I have stayed at this hotel at least twice a year since 1982, through several changes in flags. The staff has remained pretty stable, however. It is my first choice in NYC. Great location and neighborhood, great, friendly service (cannot say that about too many NYC places) and greeat views and rooms.

This hotel is very well appointed with spacious rooms and good views allround. The only down side was that the restaurant lacked some atmosphere, but there is no shortage of places to eat at in this city. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

When staying in NYC, it's worth trying for a hotel in mid Manhattan. The Millennium UN Plazza is located within walking distance to the main attractions and has the added bonus of having superb views, mainly because the lowest room is somewhere like the 28th floor. Our room was overlooking east river and Roosevelt Island, to be honest I just wanted to lie in bed with the curtains open and admire the view! The staff is helpful and there is little to find to criticise about the hotel. I have read reports that the foyer is horrible, but in my opinion it's certainly unique and worth a look.

Went to NYC around Easter 2002, and stayed at Millenium UN Plaza. As a young, recently established couple, we normally would've opted for a low-budget hotel, but we got a good deal, and spoiled ourselves. And it was really worth it! The room was great - big, with bar and wardrobe, great view over East river, UN building and 1st Av. Service was excellent; the concierge really helpful and pleasant, efficient room service...good restaurant with nice staff; a little expensive maybe, but good food...
The location was good too; not "right in the middle" of everything, but within convenient distance. We even relaxed a little in the pool; with a great view over East River; that was cool! Would definitely stay there again if a good offer came along!

This is an excellent hotel for the business traveller - in a quiet location yet central for everything. Rooms have wonderful views of the New York skyline and the East river. Large rooms by NY standards. Staff are friendly and helpful. The restuarant is very overpriced, and ice is only available from room service. Very close to John's Deli which is great for breakfast!

We have stayed at this hotel a couple of times. The views are excellent, the rooms very good, and the staff competent. I'd go there again (depending on price, of course; in NYC, prices seem to fluctuate a lot.)

When in NY last year, I was on business and very tired, I really enjoyed my stay with the UN PLAZA, very comfortable and cozy despite the very cold weather at the time. I particularly enjoyed resting in bed, having a gorgeous view over N.Y. at night. Besides, the room service was very friendly and efficient. Food was excellent and warm. When going to NY next time, I will certainly reserve a room with your hotel.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Millennium UN Plaza Hotel

Fantastic hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights from the16th feb 2004 and can honestly say it is a fantastic hotel with very friendly staff, always willing to help.Had a room on the 40th floor, facing downtown with a great view out of the window of the Crysller building and the Empire state, go for the 40th floor for great views.Went in the swimming pool and you view the Un building from there.Good place to eat(went every morning) is "JOHNS PLACE" for breakfast,cheap aswell.Had a meal in the hotel one evening and was very impressed, well worth a try.Overall a great hotel,good base and would definately stay there again.

Amazing View, Great Room

from A TripAdvisor Member
Thanks to Priceline paid a rock-bottom $100 for a 30th floor room, king bed. Only stayed one night, but saw no signs of aging other posters saw. Room was immaculate and, for a nice change, furnished modernly.
Could even open windows (increasingly rare in a high rise). If needing to be in the mid-town east region then go for it. Might be too far east for a general trip.

The view was fantastic

from A TripAdvisor Member
Really pleased with the hotel. We were on the 34th floor, and were lucky enough to have a corner room. FANTASTIC views of Long Island, the East River and 2nd Avenue.

The room was very clean, smart & modern. And unusually for New York large and airy.

The location is the only thing that holds this hotel back, its quite a hike to the nearest subway - so Taxis are the only transport really.

Loved the hotel, and the staff were very friendly.

Great base for all attractions

from A TripAdvisor Member
We have just got back today from a four night stay in this Top notch hotel. All the staff were friendly and helpfull. As it was my birthday whilst we were there we were given a corner room overlooking the east river, Queens and Brooklyn. It was amazing in the morning to wake up and watch the sun come up over the skyline, then nip down to the swimming pool to have a dip then relax in the sauna before the days onslaught of things to do. The local Johns cafe was all we had read about, with friendly service and cheep food. there was also a 24 hour deli who would deliver to your room, and no one will bother you if you have things delivered. For english people the subway can be confusing as you have to make sure you enter the right platform when using a all day pass, because we not only once but 2-3 times got onto the wrong platform and were then locked out for the next 18 mins. As has been said befor dont touch the mini bar or snack basket, but also we would advise that you sort out your mobile phone as the phone calls from the hotel are expensive. but this is normal for hotels. If you are looking for a secure hotel you cant get any better than this. with being a stones throw from the UN building all the stops have been pulled out to keep the area safe. We did a lot of walking, but Taxis are cheep and plentifull, and just think of hailing one down on times square before going back to relax in the hotel. Cant wait to be able to afford to go back to this hotel again.

We stopped in this hotel January 2004 Our room was 2737 on the 37th Floor, a corner room with panaramic views over midtown manhatten. From our room we could see the Empire State building and the Chrysler building as well as the East River. The hotel was quite plush, all the staff were very helpful. The room was quite small but clean and tidy.
The food etc in the hotel was quite expensive by New York standards but it was an excellent base for sight seeing in Manhatten. The nearby 'Palm Too' restaraunt serves excellent steaks (if a little pricey) and the local bars were full of character and very friendly The location of the hotel meant that Macys, Bloomingdales, Empire state building ans central park were all within easy walking distance. We had a great time in New York and will definately return.

Loved the UN PLaza

from A TripAdvisor Member
Have just come back from a week New York and stayed at this fantastic hotel. Although it was absolutely freezing, we had an amazing time! We stayed on the 35th floor and had breathtaking views of the Empire State and the Chrysler building. The night views are just amazing! Hotel room was neat and tidy, just a little dusty- but the bathroom was clean.
Room was cleaned to a high standard every day. Hotel is in a great location, a short walk to Grand Central Terminal.There is a fantastic chinese restaurant across the street called the Sichuan Palace which delivered to our room after our long days exploring the city. Food is amazing, we lived on the prawn curry & rice for days! I will definately be going back to stay there and I cant wait! But next time I'll be going in the summer!

Highly recommended - Dec 2003/Jan 2004

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed in this hotel for a week with my g/f. We were both very impressed by at is we paid just £80 a night for our stay. We were on the 38th floor, looking out over East River with fantastic views of the Empire State and Chrysler buildings and of lower Manhattan stretching down into the distance. The views at night down to lower Manhattan out of the room window were stunning and we were able to get some fanastic panoramic photos from the comfort of the room. Avoid the snack basket and mini bar, the prices are extortionate. The hotel don't pester you if you bring snacks and drinks from outside the hotel anyway, so get them from the shops in and around Midtown. This is a great base to explore NYC from. Close to most things and the subway is very accessible for getting down to lower Manhattan to see the other main things outside of midtown. Highly recommend Cafe Metro for breakfast and The Olive Garden italian restaurant in Times Square for dinner in an evening, or Applebees for a grill. Saw a Broadway show at the Plymouth Theatre - "Taboo" by and featuring 'Boy' George o'Dowd - fantastic! Only cost £25 a ticket too, so don't believe you can't get good VFM on tickets for Broadway (that was direct from theatre box office by the way, not from the TKTS booth where you queue for ages).

Nice Hotel, But needs updating

from tiev
The Millennium UN Hotel was nice, but needs some serious updating. I was in a one bedroom suite and the furniture was old and some of it chipped. The room was also very dark and almost dreary. When I checked in everything in the mini-bar was warm, and I called to have it fixed.
Service was very quick but the repairman informed me that a whole unit was needed and it would take several days to get this accomplished. His suggestion was to call room service for ice. I cannot believe that there was not an extra minibar in storage, but ok. Then the shower was another whole mess. There was no liner in the shower, so everytime we took a shower the bathroom floor became a small pond. I informed the front desk of this, and it never got fixed. The view was beautiful although, overlooking the east river possibly. Livingroom was well appointed for entertaining, had a couch and two chairs. There was also a dining room table. The nice part was that there was also a half bath.
So my girlfriend could use the master bath, while I shaved in the other half bath. Staff was courteous and nice, but could have paid more attention to detail. Overall I would return, but maybe ask for an updated room if there are any.

My 16 year old son and I stayed at the Hotel for 7 nights and found it an excellent and enjoyable stay.

nice place, bad workers

from A TripAdvisor Member
I went to New York to stay for the weekend, something important came up and had to go back home the next day. the manager wanted to charge me the whole weekend instead of one night stay. she didn't want to explain and was avoiding me. the only way to solve my problem was to bring in the NYPD. Everything settled.

Top Local Tips for New York City

Attractions?....It's New York!! Attractions? where to start Empire State Building Circle Line Cruise ( a must, this is a 3 hour cruise around manhattan you find alot of interesting facts out about the various momuments and history)

Get a metro map Go to any ticket desk and you can get a metro map free. This is really good as unlike other country's metros there is only limited maps on the train itself. Then make sure you read the sides of the trains as more than one route if on the same line.

River Cafe Book before you go. It is a wonderful restaurant, the staff are attentive and very professional. The restaurant is located under the Brooklyn Bridge, the view is unbelievable. The cost is $95 per person. There is a pianist playing wonderful background music all evening. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
