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.

it is very conveniently located just above the 34th street subway station. it doesn't come with breakfast and a safe in room, but that's ok with me. the room is small but decent. the free wifi works very well.
"Convenient and very comfortable"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Dec 30, 2012
The room with 2 Queen beds was large and comfortable for my husband and myself, as well as two teenage boys. It was very well maintained and quiet (we requested for a reduced noise room). The pillows were fabulous and gave us a very comfortable sleep. There were convenience stores and eateries surrounding the hotel, and we felt safe walking around at night. I will definitely choose to stay again when in Manhattan.
"Excellent Location - next to Madison Square Garden"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Dec 22, 2012
Excellent Location - next to Madison Square Garden, lots of food and shopping like Macys and H & M within walking distance. Very close to Times Square too. Only downside is no breakfast but room was big with two double beds. Will definitely stay here again.
