Hi all

Looking for info from locals concerning central New York hotels.

Recommendations? Near to all the action? Busy and safe?

Thanks in advance.

I just returned from a weekend trip to New York with our forum member Ndebele. We stayed at the Pennsylvania Hotel (http://www.hotelpenn.com), it was nothing special but it was directly on the opposite of Madisons Square Garden/Penn Station so you have to walk less than two minutes to the next subway station. Time Square and Empire State Building are approximately five minutes away, you are in the middle of all the action.

Have fun in this great city!

Patrick

The Embassy Suites in Battery Park City neighborhood of Manhattan is an excellent hotel, it's in a great neighborhood close the World Trade Center and World Financial Center.

These two hotels the Soho Grand and the Tri-beca Grand are some of the trendiest hotels in Lower Manhattan.

The W hotels are really nice..

There are some nice Holiday Inns/Crown Plazas. Especially the one one Herald Square. http://www.ichotelsgroup.com/h/d/hi/1/en/hotelsearchresults;jsessionid=MH5ASTMYFWPYZJICRZLSHPVFAKHDGIY4?_requestid=46302

And right across the river in Jersey City there's a brand new Hyat Regency built on a pier over the Hudson River, awesome views of the City and a 3 minute trip across to Lower Manhattan via the PATH or Ferry

I´ve had a great stay at the Millenium UN Plaza Hotel last time when I was in New York. They have some very good rates during summer and their rooms are well above NYC standard, modern, roomy and comfortable. Plus, as the lowest floor you can get is the 28th, a great view of either the East River or downtown Manhattan is guaranteed.
Another hotel I was staying at two years ago is the Grand Hyatt but I found it to be overpriced and in need of a complete renovation (however, the lobby is quite spectacular and the breakfast buffet fantastic).
The Pennsylvania Hotel which Patrick mentioned should be the cheapest hotel in Manhattan that could be considered as being centrally located.
Well, wherever you get to stay, have fun in this absolutely amzing city!

Another Hotel I would recomend is the Millenium Hilton, this hotel was damaged in the 9-11 attacks and just recently re-opened after an extensive renovation.

Is that some sort of glass sculpture attached to the front? If not, it looks hopelessly out of scale with the building behind.

How much does the Path train cost into Manhattan from Jersey City?

Wasn´t the Millenium Hilton in serious danger of collapsing after 9/11? Great to see that they managed to open it up again. I remember that it always was a very expensive hotel from Monday thru Thursday but quite affordable on weekends. Do they still have special offers on weekends?

The Sheraton Russell is also quite nice; when I am staying in the city, this is where I stay. It was built in the 1930s as an apartment building, but has been converted into a hotel. It has a very nice ambience. It is located on Park Street between 36th and 37th; 3 blocks from the 6 Train 33rd Street Station, 5 blocks away from Grand Central (4, 5, 6, 7, and Times Square Shuttle trains, as well as MetroNorth). It is about a 10 minute walk to Herald Square/Penn Station (34th and 6th for Herald Square, 34/7 for Penn Sta.), and about 15 minute walk to Times Square.

The Millennium Broadway is great. It's in Midtown, Times Square area. Close to all the subway lines. It's busy and action filled outside, but when you step into the lobby you can exhale and relax. It's a great hotel. The rib joint across the street is one of my favorites. Get the hush puppies!!
