Spacious rooms with plush-top beds and flat-panel HDTVs, with Rockefeller Center three blocks away, provide a great Gotham getaway for our guests at Doubletree by Hilton Metropolitan Hotel. Designed by the renowned Morris Lapidus in 1959, the 20-floor Metropolitan has a retro modernist exterior shaped like a perpendicular blue wave. The hotel has a fun history: the famous scene in "The Seven Year Itch" where a subway vent blows Marilyn Monroe's skirt up was filmed in front of the hotel. The 759 contemporary rooms have granite countertops, flat-panel HDTVs, Wi-Fi (surcharge) and signature Doubletree beds with custom-designed mattresses, baffle-box, down blankets, and high-thread-count cotton linens with triple sheeting. Property amenities include a restaurant, a lounge, a fitness center and concierge service. Valet parking is available for an additional fee. The Doubletree is at Lexington and 51st Street in Midtown Manhattan. LaGuardia Airport is eight miles, JFK is 16 miles, and Newark Airport is 15 miles from the hotel. All of the Big Apple, and we mean all of it, can be viewed from the Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center, three blocks west. Radio City Music Hall is four blocks, and the Theatre District is five blocks west. It's a short stroll east to the East River and the United Nations. A subway stop is next to the hotel.

The location of this hotel, comfortable beds, spacious rooms and overall cleanliness has brought me back time and again. I have even referred friends to this location who were visiting NYC. But after this experience I will not be back.
I have stayed at this same hotel 3x now. Upon arrival , which was 1:38 pm , I asked if I could check in and was very very rudely told that my room wasn’t ready and check-in is at 3. I was just in NYC at the courtyard Marriott in the upper Eastside two weeks prior and was allowed to check in earlier. I do understand that sometimes rooms aren’t available for early check in but it was the way Taryn at the front desk spoke to me that I didn’t appreciate. Then our fist day ..we left our room at around noon, our room was not cleaned so I had to ask for clean towels. Day of checkout I called front desk to see if I could get late check out (I’ve never had a problem getting an extra hour) ..guy on the phone told me latest he could do was noon which is normal checkout time anyway so that was annoying. I go down to checkout and again Taryn is at the front desk and was just as rude as the day I checked in. I have always had good experiences at this hotel but due to the rudeness of the person at the front desk I don’t think I will be back. I checked in at about 5:30 pm and was not allowed to check out even 1/2 hour later.
