The New York Hilton Midtown is the largest hotel in New York City and world's 101st tallest hotel. The hotel is corporate owned and managed by Hilton Worldwide.The 47-floor building located on the northwest edge of Rockefeller Center at Sixth Avenue and 53rd Street has hosted every U.S. president since John F. Kennedy as well as the Beatles during their 1964 visit to the Ed Sullivan Theater. The world's first handheld cell phone call was made by hotel guest Martin Cooper in front of the hotel in 1973.HistoryThe project was developed by Hilton Hotels Corporation, the Rockefeller Group, and the Uris Building Corporation. The original architect was Morris Lapidus and he proposed to build a curved Fontainebleau Hotel-style building. However, Lapidus had to withdraw since he was also designing the competing Americana Hotel (now the Sheraton New York Hotel and Towers) a block away.
