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.

"in the Heart of Time Square and NY City"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Jan 19, 2013
The hotel staff were excellent and helpful, Olga helped book shows and transport to airports and gave ideas on places to visit while in NY. The reception staff were so helpful and when my husband arrived to surprise me at the hotel they helped in every way to get the surprise set up...while the rooms were compact they were perfect and above all spotless with daily room service, to us a top class stay at an exceptionally affordable price. Will be recommending to anyone in the future
"Small but comfortable room in great location"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Jan 5, 2013
Stayed there for one night. Great location. Clean room with all the basic hotel comforts. The room was a little small but the hotel was in a great location close to Chinatown, Little Italy, Soho and Greenwich Village. Would stay there again.

This hotel was amazing. I stayed here for 8 days in my 21 days Manhattan-visit. The price was very price-worthy. The location is amazing, the only place with a better location is Time Square. I mean, this place has about 6 different Subway stations within a 4 minutes walk and shopping everywhere. However, the room is very limited. It's very dark, it's very small (especially since I am 6,5 tall or 197 centimeters). It's shared bathrooms etc, but the people who lives there are very well dressed. I would definitely stay here again if I just want to be here for a few days business, but it's not a good place for more intimate nights since you basically don't have any roof and all the rooms next to you will hear everything you do.

simple, nice and efficient hotel. superb location . breakfast is nice. mini fridgein the room was very empty so we could fill it- very helpful . the only cons were the carpet in the room was filthy . Quite unpleasant. some other little things were broken . not enough hooks to hang clothes neither in the closet nor in the bathroom.
