Known as the "Crossroads of the World", Times Square is a dazzling intersection famed for its lavish neon signs, grand theaters, and pulsating crowds. Whether you're on your way to a Broadway show, a buzzing bar or one of the family-friendly restaurant that line the streets, look out for iconic structures like the Paramount Building and One Times Square – site of the celebrated New Year's Eve ball drop.
One of the art capitals of the world, Chelsea has literally hundreds of renowned galleries to explore, including the Gagosian and the Gladstone. A taste of New York life can be had at Chelsea Market, a vast warren of artisan food stalls. The High Line, an elevated promenade, offers fantastic views of this upscale neighbourhood, while the Chelsea Piers – intended destination of the Titanic – is a great Manhattan landmark.
Think "New York City" and the sights of Midtown East will spring to mind . There's the towering Art Deco splendor of the Chrysler Building, the gleaming edges of the Empire State Building, and the opulence of Grand Central – arguably the world's most famous train station. For top flight shopping, make your way to Saks Fifth Avenue, and you can even walk the corridors of power at the UN Headquarters.
Anyone visiting the Big Apple will want to explore Midtown West – this is where the razzle dazzle of Times Square is, after all. Take in a show on Broadway or, if you fancy giving your mind a workout, take a tour of the celebrated Museum of Modern Art (or MoMA). And when your tummy starts rumbling, check out the French brasseries, sushi bars and Russian eateries on Restaurant Row.
Sandwiched between the winding Hudson River and lush Central Park, Manhattan's Upper West Side is home to New York's most exclusive high-rise apartments, as well as Columbia University. The American Museum of Natural History makes it a history-buff's dream, while the Lincoln Center showcases everything from opera to jazz. A stroll around Riverside Park in full bloom is a fine way to spend a sunny day.

Walking distance to Madison square garden, Penn station, Macy's, empire state building, k town, and other sites. 3min from subway. Great service, nice daily breakfast. Would return. Very happy with stay.
"Near the best museums"

A small cosy hotel rather like those in London and Paris. What set it apart was the excellent service provided by staff. They were genuinely friendly, helpful and attentive. The room was small but pretty -- it even had a small chandelier! Really close to the Guggenheim, Metropolitan Museum of Art and others.
"great location, better service expected though"

My friend and I stayed in the hotel for close to 2 weeks for christmas and new year. Excellent location for the countdown, times square, broadway, subways. There are restaurants, supermarket, pharmacy around. However, I do have mixed feelings about the hotel service. It was great to have 24 hour hot water, coffee and tea available. The housekeeping staff has great service - we come back to a clean, comfortable room daily. We returned to the room in the afternoon for a rest and the housekeeping staff came with extra towels. I was disappointed with the staff at the front desk and conceige. I would expect better service than the one provided to me being the face of the hotel to customers. One of the incidents at the front desk: Our keycard was faulty and had to make a change. My friend told the lady our room number. I reckon she could reconfirm our room number than to say that we had provided a wrong room number (which I was sure we did not).
