One of Hilton’s largest and upscale property in New York City. Located to the far end East side of Midtown, it is a little removed from the noise, crowds and super-busy streets of Central Midtown (i.e Times Square). For many this is a welcome quality, especially if you have a few days of visits. The neighborhood is fairly flat and easy to navigate with a wheelchair. It boasts dozens of friendly eateries, including the best bagels in NYC Ess-a-Bagel. Public transportation is fairly easy with main accessible bus lines running South-North on the avenues and East-West on the streets. Main attractions such as Bryant Park, Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, etc are all within short walking/rolling distance.  The hotel caters to a lot of visiting diplomats of the UN (literally across the street) thus having a superior level of service and attention to details and diverse cultures. Their accessible rooms are very well appointed. The management has a good understanding of mobility/disability issues and always ready to assist when special arrangements are needed.

If you are used to smaller hotels, the Millennium might be a little daunting at first. Its grand entrance across from the UN, flags and all, its expansive lobby and extensive use of glass and reflective surfaces in its atrium might read more like a convention center than a hotel. But don’t be put off by that. The rooms are actually very cozy, very comfortable and inviting. There are no bad views, especially from the upper floors, either to the US and the East River or toward Midtown. What makes this hotel stand apart is the level of service. Having a personal contact with a director helps of course, but the entire staff is trained to address travelers’ mobility issues with courtesy and professionalism. This of course is largely due to the fact that the hotel caters to a demanding clientele of diplomats working or visiting the UN across the street.
