New York Hotel Query

Jump to last reply

HELP!! My husband and I (mid 50’s) are arriving on 20th of Sept 2 to 2nd of October (12 nights) for our first trip to the USA. For a few days now I have trawled hotel booking sights, guide books and consulted friends and after being convinced that midtown is the area for us I have tentatively booked The Pod 51st Street. I have paid about US$338 per night which is a lot for us – obviously would like to have paid less but realise it is the price of NY. The Pod is fine but just lacks a bit of character as it is very newish and vibrant.

Have I booked the right hotel for us? Any alternatives? Or are there other areas we should consider? We are wanting to visit all the usual tourist sights, go to a show, shop etc and want to be close to the action as my ability to walk all day is somewhat limited. Can you please advise?
