Birthday Trip to NYC

Jump to last reply

Four of us will be headed to NYC in late July. I know....it'll be HOT! It's big birthday for one of us and we plan on spending as much time as we can in air conditioned comfort. Our original plan was to get a VRBO condo in Manhattan. But, now we are thinking of two hotel rooms (4 people total...at least for now). A hotel might just be more fun.

I have researched many great options through the Tripadvisor countdown, but most of the Manhattan properties are just too pricey for us. I am now thinking of the Marriott Residence Inn Times Square as an option. It includes breakfast and that's a plus. Plus, it's really reasonable price wise and gets really good reviews.

We are certain to see a Broadway show and we are leaning towards, South Pacific. We want to see a couple museums and have other sites and have 4 full days to do it. A walk in Central Park and the water tour of the Statue of Liberty. Great food too...of course!

I have looked at the Costco New York Access card and that's looks like a good deal. Any opinions, suggestions, etc? Thanks so much!!
