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.

Mellisa at the front desk was awesome, we booked the hotel initially for 3 days from hotels.com. We loved the hotel and wanted to make another reservation for another 3days she was super helpful and gave us the best rate.
Samantha was also amazing, after 12 hours flight I arrived before check in time and I pleaded with her and she checked us in earlier. I recommend this hotel anytime and I would always come back
Service at the hotel was prompt and the staff were friendly. The location was ideal being near enough to major attractions. It was very quiet at night ( maybe we were just too tired from our daily excursions!). The only thing is the lobby is small and at check in/ out it can get pretty crowded. Overall a pleasant stay and we would definitely go back.
If you want to be centrally located to all that New York has to offer than I cannot recommend the Belvedere Hotel highly enough for location alone. Close enough to walk to a lot of the Tourist highlights and right beside a Subway station for those that are not walking distance. Countless restaurants to choose from in the locality. Very clean and comfortable rooms.
"Great stay at Broadway @ Times Square"

Had a great stay here. Location was very central. Breakfast was plentiful-no full Irish but plenty of juice, tea, coffee, bread, bagels, eggs, pancakes, eggs, fruit and yogurt and as much as you wanted. Around 9.30 a.m. seemed to be the busiest time. Staff were always very pleasant and helpful. We didn't use hotel facilities to organise tours etc. but this was available. No restaurant or bar in the hotel but plenty to choose from in the area so this was not a factor for us.
Top class hotel in everyway,from staff to location to cleanliness & service,would highly recommend this hotel to friends & family & will definitely stay here next time I visit New York ! 10 out of 10 !
