Trip Report An overnight stay in NYC to see 2 shows

Jump to last reply

DH and i had not been to a Broadway show in ages, so we thought we would extend our family visit in NJ with an overnight stay in NYC to see 2 shows, a Tuesday evening and Wednesday matinee performance. We stayed at the Hyatt Times Square, a property that recently opened in .Jan. The location was perfect for our purpose, 45th St. between 6th and 7th Ave. The room were an adequate size for 2 people, with a refrigerator and coffee maker. The bathroom was decent size. The room was clean and comfortable with a gorgeous view of the NY skyscrapers. (We were on the 21st floor).. My only complaint about the room was that there was not a closet or hangar in the room, only a wall hook to hang clothes in the bedroom. Valet parking was $60/ day which was convenient on arrival, but not at check out. It took us 35 mintes to get our car from the time we called for it. We were told it should have taken 15-20 minutes.

We wanted to see 2 musicals so we chose Newbies for Tuesday night and Jersey Boys on Wed. We printed out discount coupons for both. We bought the tickets for Jersey Boys at the box office on Tuesday for the Wed. matinee. On Tuesday afternoon we tried to use the printout discount at the box office for Newsies, but they told us that not only was the discount not good for the entire week (it was school vacation week), but that they were sold out for Tuesday night. We were going to get tickets to another show when I decided to take a look at what was on the board at TKTs. Sure enough, Newsies was up at 30% off, so we stood in line for about 45 minutes and got 2 single tickets, for Tuesday night, both perfectly situated in the front of the orchestra and front of the mezzanine. We enjoyed both shows.

After the matinee we made a quick stop at a highly recommended place for soup, Hale and Hearty, on 54th and 8th Ave, and at a bagel place called Pick a Bagel to bring home some really good NY bagels. We left the city at 5:30 and were home in 4 hours, after a very enjoyable 2 days.
