The New York Hilton Midtown on Sixth Avenue, which, with 1,878 rooms, is Hilton’s largest property in the continental United States, reopened its doors to guests on Monday after being shuttered for over 18 months.

The hotel closed on March 20, 2020 in the early days of the pandemic, one of many properties large and small to be forced to do so amidst the coronavirus pandemic-induced decline in travel.

The hotel’s general manager, Diarmuid Dwyer, said that his team used the time during the closure “to reinvent our customer and guest experiences.”

Located across from the Museum of Modern Art and close to Radio City Music Hall and many Broadway theaters, the Hilton is inviting New Yorkers to be a part of its reopening celebration, offering complimentary live music from DJs, subway performers, and choirs in the coming week.

In addition, as a thank you to essential workers in its immediate neighborhood, the hotel said it will be “surprising” such workers – the people who kept the city going during the darkest days of the pandemic in pharmacies, grocery stores, and restaurants – with complimentary weekend stays at the property.
