Take a Trip to New York Hotels

The Big Apple is one of those cities that everyone seems to talk about visiting but not all of us do. New York hotels often seem to get as much discussion as the city itself with many visitors commenting on whether they had a view of Central Park or which part of Manhattan they stayed in.

Dubbed the 'city that never sleeps’, the US's largest city is one of the world's most famous destinations and one that every traveller, no matter what their taste, should experience at least once in their lifetime.

There’s more to New York than just drinking cocktails like the Sex And The City girls, or enjoying a coffee a la the gang from Friends; although there’s plenty of places to do both of these if you fancy following in their footsteps!

New York has so much to offer that it’s no surprise it’s one of the most talked about and visited cities in the World. One aspect of New York that cannot be ignored is the shopping, which is almost as famous as arguably its most iconic structure, the Empire State Building.

Where to start with so many world famous stores is probably the only dilemma any shopper will face when they find themselves in the Big Apple. Stores such as Macy’s, which features stock from all the big-name brands, are usually top of the list for most people looking to spend some of their hard-earned cash.

There’s also Madison Avenue which is a full 15 blocks of designer outlets with everything from Prada to Chanel. You can even buy yourself a pair of Fratelli Rosetti shoes to walk around in, although they’re probably better saved for a more elegant occasion.

Talking of designer outlets, no trip to New York is complete without a visit to Barney’s, which houses lots of the biggest names in fashion all under one roof. When it comes to everything under one roof, then Saks department store on Fifth Avenue is the epitome of that idea and rightfully one of the most visited stores in the city.

If all that shopping makes you feel a little peckish then it would be near-criminal not to take a trip to Grand Central Station and try some authentic New York cheesecake. The station, which has recently been restored, houses the world famous Oyster Bar and Restaurant as well as Godiva Chocolatier and many other eateries.

The great thing about the ‘city so nice they named it twice’ is that it has a lot to offer for the culture vultures among us, who don’t just wish to spend their trip eating and shopping.

Central Park has been a focal point of the city for over 150 years and both visitors and New Yorkers love the green space it has to offer. The park has numerous restaurants and is ideal for either a picnic, or maybe a romantic horse drawn carriage ride for those seeking something special to do with a loved one. Central Park is also home to the Metropolitan Museum, which is far from being the only museum in New York. Believe it or not, the Big Apple is home to over 80 museums, which means that if you’re a history lover you’ve come to the right place.

One of the most well-known museums is the Guggenheim on Fifth Avenue, which houses several exhibitions and even performances.

Of course you don’t need to go to a museum to watch performances in New York, as Broadway is up there with London’s West End as one of the premier theatre spots. If you don’t want to travel all the way across the pond to the US to enjoy a show, then a trip to London could well satisfy your theatre-going appetite. After all, there are enough London hotels to accommodate even the most particular of travellers.

However, a visit to New York’s Broadway district may just have the edge even over London’s West End, as it is home to some of the biggest shows and stars in show business.

You can enjoy well-known favourites such as Mamma Mia! and even Britain’s own Billy Elliot, or even try American Idiot, the new show that everyone’s talking about.

The great thing about the truly mesmerising city of New York is that its hotels are arguably as famous as some of its sights.

Whether you want to stay in a more upmarket accommodation or are simply looking for a cheap hotel to lay your head for a few hours in between important trips to the shops and shows, there’s enough to suit all visitors.

A lot of hotels in New York are known throughout the world. They pride themselves on being as memorable and enjoyable a part of your trip there as anything else you do.

Speaking of landmarks, New York has so many that it’s difficult to fit them all into your trip; especially if you get carried away with the shopping or fall in love with going to Broadway shows.

It may no longer be the world’s tallest skyscraper, but its classic design and rich history make the Empire State Building one the wonders of New York. Every year, hundreds of thousands of people make the trip up the truly awe-inspiring monument to man’s achievements, enjoying the views of over 80 miles.

Manhattan’s Cathedral of Saint John the Divine is one of the largest Christian buildings anywhere in the world. Like the Guggenheim, the cathedral is more than just an impressive monument, actually being home to classical concert performances.

New York is one of the most talked about places; not just in the US but also anywhere in the world, and for good reason thanks to its plethora of stores and renowned shopping districts, not to mention its sights. Then there’s also the entertainment side that New York has to offer, be it Broadway or something along the lines of an exhibition or performance at one of its museums.

With a wide range of expensive to cheap hotels, there’s enough in terms of accommodation to keep all the Big Apple's many visitors happy.
