1 out of 6 elevators operated so you were squished in every time with 10+ people due to only one working. Hotel staff weren’t helpful with queries, hotel was not at all expected, didn’t live up to its famous name was disappointed really & no R on our pillows as per pictures.

This Manhattan hotel is in the Midtown West neighborhood, 0.8 mile from Times Square and within one-half mile of the New Amsterdam Theater and Madame Tussauds ...
Great location, great hotel. Guess the only reason I didn't give them an overall rating of 5 stars is because of the price but then again I guess it is Manhattan so you can't really expect to find anything cheap! Rooms are quite cosy, wouldn't want to share it with anyone you just met!!

The staff were very efficient and helpful, the facilities clean and the location excellent. A great bagel bar around the corner! The only drawback was client noise and the constant slamming of doors, when one could almost feel back at college. For quite a premium price, perhaps the door weights could ...

It was a let down as the rooms didn't come with a fridge, tea bags or even worse a kettle. These are all basics which I have never a hotel not supply. They were nice enough to bring up kettles of water when needed, however the wait could vary from 10 to 30 minutes depending on how busy they were ...

Things happen fast in New York City, but even your easy-going holiday self will find some time to get lazy while relaxing in Washington Square Park or sitting back for a hot new Off-Broadway show. You might even see a future Tony Award-winner before she’s famous.
Kick-start a culture fix with world-class art galleries throughout the five boroughs, sample fare from any corner of the globe in Brooklyn and shop till you just can’t anymore in Lower Manhattan. Book your flights to New York City and chow down on the “Big Apple”!
NYC is full of people, sure, but there’s always room for travellers in New York City accommodation. If you want easy access to the entire city, then book accommodation near Central Park. If you stay south of “the Park”, you’ll be mere blocks from Grand Central Station and major attractions, like Times Square, the Theatre District and Rockefeller Center.
What can’t you do in “The City That Never Sleeps”, besides sleep? The answer is nothing, that’s what. You’ll still want to reserve a hotel in New York City, though, for wardrobe changes. Speaking of wardrobes, shop off the beaten rack in vintage stores and boutiques in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
But fashion isn’t NYC’s only photo-ready feature. The best cityscape views can be found from the lush High Line Park, a repurposed portion of elevated rail line tracks in Lower Manhattan. While you’re in the area, pause at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum or catch the ferry to Staten Island to greet Lady Liberty as you float by…then grab an ice cream cone and float right back. In Manhattan (aka “The City”), load up on street food (bagels, anyone?) or fine dining on every corner.
Museum-hoppers can go a little bonkers in NYC, too, from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Central Park to the tiny Mmuseumm, a gallery of artefacts in an old elevator in Tribeca. And let’s not forget our four-legged and feathered friends at The Bronx Zoo. If you’re feeling knackered near the northern borough, you can always relax in accommodation in New York City’s Hudson Heights neighbourhood, with views of an idyllic monastery on the Hudson River.
NYC is serviced by two major airports—John F. Kennedy International (JFK) and LaGuardia International (LGA)—both located in Queens. You can also fly in to Newark International Airport (EWR) in New Jersey. All three airports connect with public transport via the free AirTrain shuttle —and you thought NYC would be expensive. With an extensive subway and bus system and taxis galore, you can reach your New York City hotel and all the stops on your itinerary without your own set of wheels, though you may want to look into one of Wotif’s car hire options.
If a lot can happen in a New York minute, it’s no surprise that NYC’s events calendar is always quadruple-booked. Summer is warm and balmy—the best time to be out in the streets for a festival. Get the season off to a big start at the annual Pride Week parade, which dances its way down Fifth Avenue the last Sunday of June.
Speaking of dancing, SummerStage—a free concert series with international headliners—kicks off in Central Park each June and runs through September. As summer turns into autumn, the whole city puts its best foot forward in designer pumps for New York Fashion Week. If you’re planning your holiday around the best food in New York City, then visit in time for the Feast of San Gennaro; for 11 days you can eat your weight in cannoli and other Italian delights.
You’ve probably heard a thing or two about Central Park. From the iconic Bethesda Fountain to mellow Sheep Meadow and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Central Park makes all the other green spaces jealous. When you want to put your feet up on a bench and chat with squirrels, you’ll run right into this grassy oasis smack dab in the middle of upper Manhattan.
You don’t have to be uptown to get your tranquil on, though. If Brooklyn is more your scene, then check out Prospect Park. Tromp through The Long Meadow or float outside The Boathouse during the warm months. Here’s a local tip, too: Prospect Park is a great place to slice across an ice rink without the crowds of onlookers at Rockefeller Center or Bryant Park.
Not really the outdoorsy type at all? Stay above the tree line with a Helicopter Tour of NYC Landmarks. You’re welcome.
If you’ve got just one day in New York City, well, good luck. Haha, sorry. NYC bucket lists can get lengthy, but if you have to be picky, go straight to the top. No, not at the Empire State Building—you can’t admire it if you’re standing on it. Instead, look out over Manhattan from the Observation Deck at Rockefeller Center. Take a turn around the deck to see a panorama of the Chrysler Building, Times Square, the Theater District and the Empire State Building. You can even see New Jersey and Queens, depending on where you’re standing.
This isn’t the only landmark you’ve got to add to your itinerary, but it’s an awesome place to start. Just look out over the city, point and say, “That’s next”!
