Striking modernist Midtown East hotel with rich, colorful history
The blue façade of the Doubletree Metropolitan Hotel New York City, shaped like a rolling wave, makes it hard to miss. The lobby reflects a contemporary version of 1960s chic. The earth-toned rooms feel warm and modern. The hotel is a historic landmark, and amenities such as 24-hour business and fitness centers meet the needs of today's travelers.
Highlights
  • Complimentary 24-hour fitness center
  • Easy walk to Fifth Avenue shopping, Rockefeller Center and more
  • Two blocks from Citigroup Center and Madison Avenue
Rooms

Expect rooms decorated in soothing earth tones with down-filled duvets and triple sheeting on the beds. Amenities include Internet access and flat-screen TVs with complimentary HBO. The slate and limestone bathrooms have Neutrogena bath amenities. Junior suites include a seating area, and some have a pullout sofa and balcony. PURE allergy-friendly rooms are a draw for travelers with allergies or asthma. PURE rooms are cleaned with anti-allergy cleaners and have improved air quality.

 

Features

The Doubletree Metropolitan is the largest Doubletree hotel in the United States.

Renowned modernist architect Morris Lapidus originally designed the hotel. The hotel was designated a historical landmark in 2005. Marilyn Monroe made history here in 1955 while filming for the "Seven-Year Itch." Monroe was posing in front of the hotel when a gust of air from a subway grate blew up the skirt of her white halter dress.

Dining

Met Grill, off the main lobby, serves breakfast until 11 a.m. daily. The menu features a la carte selections and a breakfast buffet. Room service is available. Off-site restaurants offer a variety of food within easy walking distance. Brasserie for French food, Pescatore for Italian, Dos Caminos for Mexican and Smith and Wollensky steakhouse are within four blocks.

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.

MODERATE

I've been staying for 2nights , it was pleasant , but interior is a bit old and the furniture in the bathroom may have damage, other than that it was good for the price.

Nice weekend stay

Very close proximity to major NYC areas. A few blocks away from Central Park, fashion district, and Time Square. Check in and out was very quick, easy, and efficient. Fiancé noted that the bed and room was, "one of the best night's sleep he's had in a while." The room was very quiet and you couldn't hear any outdoor noise or indoor guests. Great value and nice location. Would definitely recommend to friends and family and would use again for weekend trips to the city.

Great One Night Stay

Booked the room for a trip to NYC to attend a squash tournament at Grand Central Station, visit friends, and dine. It was an ideal location for all 3 purposes. The room was clean, updated and actually spacious by NYC standards given the price. The staff was very helpful and upgraded us from queen to king without having to ask. The 6 subway line was right next door, very convenient. Very pleased with the stay.

Great location!

The room was fine, and the bed was comfortable. The housekeeping crew were very friendly and polite. I was disappointed that the room did not come with a coffee maker, refrigerator, or free wifi.
