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.
"Convenient Location, Close to all the best places."

I was at Sheraton New York for 2 days and overall I think it was a great experience. The room was nicely lit and very modern appearance. If I get the chance I would definitely return to stay at Sheraton again.

1) Great conveinent location around Time's Square. There's also a subway around the corner so it's easy to get to places.
2) Although the room was a tad small (especially the toliet), it had a cosy vibe. And a modern feel.
3) Beds were cushy and comfortable
4) They had an ipod dock with an alarm clock. Great for conveniently charging your phone and listening to music.
5) Doors felt secure and safe.
6) Great unobstructed view
7) Area is pretty quiet at night, so you can sleep well. But abit of noise from the traffic sirens just before midnight.
1) Really small. No space for big luggages. We had to unpack our stuff in the drawers and place our 2 big luggages in the closet and on the floor.
2) No gym in the hotel so we had to go to their sister hotel nearby to gym. A little inconvenient.
3) No Kettle, fridge or tea/coffee. Which was a bummer cos it was winter and we wanted to drink hot water to stay warm.
4) No idea how to operate the heater. it would just suddenly rattle and turn on by itself. Becos of this room was sometimes a bit stuffy so we had to open the window a bit to let cool air in.
Overall, i felt it was affordable and had a good location. I would come back to this hotel again becos i like the cosy room and conveinence. Anyway, if you're visiting new york, it's unlikely u'll stay in your room all the time so this works perfectly. It's good for couples or two people cos of small size..
