New York Hilton Midtown

NHSMUN 2020 will take place at two main venues: the New York Hilton Midtown and the United Nations Headquarters (availability permitting), both in New York City. All conference participants are required to stay at the New York Hilton, with the exception of schools located in New York City that desire to commute to and from the conference. Committee sessions, presentations, and conference activities take place at the Hilton, sometimes running until 11:00 PM or later (ask us about our midnight crisis sessions!). For this reason, all participants stay at the Hilton, creating an immersive environment for everyone involved. NHSMUN has the benefit of a hotel in one of the best locations in Manhattan, offering endless opportunities for delegates.

The New York Hilton Midtown is located in the center of Midtown Manhattan, very close to the city’s main attractions and popular destinations. Steps away from Central Park and Times Square, it is easy to enjoy the uniquely cosmopolitan experience of New York City. Just like our staff volunteers, the Hilton staff is ready to cater to participants' needs. The options for tasty meals are endless: from quick grab-and-go meals to higher-end dinners, the location of the New York Hilton Midtown offers countless different possibilities and will enhance your experience at NHSMUN. There are dozens of very affordable restaurants, cafes, shops, and food establishments in the immediate vicinity of the hotel, within a very short walking distance.

Instructions for making hotel reservations at the discounted group rate are released to all accepted groups after registration. As will be explained in the Reservations Instructions Packet, you will need to submit a Rooming List for your group, listing the dates of arrival/departure and the name of each room occupant. Please do not attempt to make your reservations until the instructions are released. Reservations will be submitted through a hotel team dedicated specifically to NHSMUN (hotels@imuna.org). The Hilton will direct all reservation requests to this team.

The NHSMUN Hilton rates are per room, per night, and are based on type of room. For those looking to extend their stay for tourism or sightseeing, these rates are also available in the days preceding and following the conference. Rates will be posted in August and are expected to remain the same as the 2017-2019 rates. As with these previous years, on average, rates work out to be approximately $100 per person per night when space is maximized. Individual delegates should expect to pay this amount as well ($100 per night).

NHSMUN group rates are accompanied by flexible change and cancellation policies, and they include premium wireless internet access throughout the hotel, both in the sleeping rooms and the meeting rooms (rare for New York City!), as well as private overnight security and other group benefits. The prices do not include a porterage fee and sales tax, if applicable. Hotel reservations are made through NHSMUN's hotel team, and you will be assigned a dedicated hotel contact who will manage your reservations. For those desiring to do so, you will be able to combine conference and hotel fees in one invoice. If you have any questions about the hotel stay, please contact hotels@imuna.org.

United Nations Headquarters (availability permitting)

Located on 1st Avenue between 42nd and 48th Streets, the United Nations Headquarters overlooks the East River. NHSMUN has been very fortunate to have the opportunity of hosting its past opening or closing ceremonies at the United Nations Headquarters. Please note that sessions are subject to availability of space at the United Nations. Meetings and sessions of the United Nations understandably take precedence over Model United Nations conferences. NHSMUN is most grateful to the United Nations, availability permitting, for allowing delegates to visit the heart of world diplomacy!

The United Nations is located within walking distance of the New York Hilton. The majority of groups choose to walk between these venues. However, public transportation is also easily accessible to and from both locations.

Please note that the New York Hilton Midtown and the United Nations are fully ADA accessible.
