Hilton New York is now known as New York Hilton Midtown

Hilton New York, which is the biggest hotel in the city, has now been renamed as New York Hilton Midtown. This move has been taken as an homage to the forthcoming 50th anniversary of the property as well as a way to better define the location of the property.

The hotel started its business in this place in June 1963 and it is situated on the 6th Avenue between the 53rd and the 54th streets. It has 1980 rooms that edge out the New York Marriott Marquis that has 1949 rooms. Still, New York Marriott Marquis is the largest hotel in New York.

In a statement, Mark Lauer, the general manager of the New York Hilton Midtown, told that as they approach their 50th anniversary, it is a fitting tribute to restore the name that their founding father, Conrad Hilton, provided. This hotel brand has 7 Manhattan hotels.

Today, JetBlue Airways launched their New York’s only nonstop air service to the city of Albuquerque. Dave Barger, the president and CEO of JetBlue was joined by Richard Berry, the Albuquerque Mayor, during the first flight’s departure ceremony at the Kennedy International Airport.

During the event, Dave Barger told that they are really happy to announce that JetBlue now serves Albuquerque International with the only daily nonstop service to the New York Metro Area.
