Building in New York’s Times Square that houses very popular Hilton affiliated hotel is about to go through redevelopment and there has been lot of confusion when this DoubleTree Guest Suites is closing.
The hotel employees were first informing guests that the hotel was closing its doors at the end of November (read more here). Hilton spokesperson contacted us that the closure had been postponed until the end of January (read more here). Hilton was contacting members this week and also confirmed us that the hotel was closing on December 22 (read more here). This has all changed yet again.

Here’s reply that we received from Hilton spokesperson on Wednesday:
DoubleTree Guest Suites Times Square, LGASF will be closing on Dec 22. Our relocation team will be happy to assist any guests who need to find alternative Hilton accommodations.
And updated note late yesterday:
I just spoke to the DoubleTree team again and they let me know that the date has changed. The hotel will now be accepting reservations through January 2019, so still through New Year’s Eve. Our teams are always here for any guests with questions about an upcoming stay.
Here’s award availability as of now:
Here’s paid availability as of today:
Note that there is no minimum stay requirement for Diamond members who book using points unlike there is for December 31 if you pay.
The availability for this hotel right now is really weird. Awards are blocked from January 15th onwards while paid rates are available until the end of the month.
Hilton Honors was emailing its members earlier this week and confirmed us too that the hotel would close tomorrow and now this has been again postponed until sometime in January. You would think that this negatively affects their occupancy rates?
