Maybe a trip to NYC will make my 16 year old think Mom's okay

Jump to last reply

As a Christmas present, I'm going to take my daughter to NYC for four days in mid-February. Although I've visited in the past, albeit years ago, she's never been, and I know she'll be very excited at the prospect. So a couple of questions for the always generous Fodor's contributors.

We're not big chain hotel types, so I'm thinking either the Benjamin, the Iroquois, 70 Park Ave. or The Ace. I expect we'll be walking a lot, and taking the subway, but I don't have a good sense of which of these hotels might be better situated for a four-day trip. Any thoughts, recommendation would be appreciated.

Now for the important question. If you were travelling with a 16-year-old girl (think cell phone surgically implanted, ability to shop 24/7 but also eager to travel, curious, and open to new experiences), what are the top three things you think are must-do's? Any particular shows that wouldn't elicit eye-rolling?

As ever, many thanks in advance for all comments and guidance.
