Trip Report NYC Sheraton towers

Jump to last reply

Arrived in the city yesterday. Asked for and received room upgrade. Yay! First thing we did was walk the short distance to Central Park. Weather perfect. Stopped in Petrossian.com bakery and picked up au pain du chocolat to eat in the park.

We really got a deal on this hotel through hotwire but I'm glad weRe not paying too much because of a few minor irritants. The cable tv offers only one news channel - FOX. the remaining channels are reruns, sports and old movies. WIFI is $15/ day for one device so dh and I take turns using our devices. And the bar has a dreadful wine by the glass list. These are minor inconveniences but this hotel considers itself premier. I give it great marks on the room and cleanliness. Very comfortable.

I have a serious fear of heights and didn't consider that when ordering tickets for A Night with Janis Joplin. Oh boy! The balcony is a fright! Got to my seat but sat there a while getting more clammy and dizzy. Husband demands we leave before something bad happens. The kind aisle monitor said she understood and directed us to the manager. She found us seats that worked. Box seats!! I have the kindest thoughts for the staff at the Lyceum Theater!

The understudy performed the show, as happens for Wedns and Sat matinees, and she was darn good! Towards the middle of the first act she really began to belt out the songs. We enjoyed the show.

Off to dinner. Will report on that later
