Suite hotel? Marathon impact? NYC Mid-town, 4d with 7 y.o. and husband

Jump to last reply

Thanks in advance for the collective wisdom of the list.

We will be using a windfall mini-school holiday to take our son to NYC for his first time during the first w/end in November (same weekend as the Marathon). We are planning on doing some of the touristy stuff - he *really* wants to go to the top of the Empire SB; Lego store at Rock Ctr; we'll likely take him to FAO Schwarz, Grand Central, and hopefully grab some tix online to Spiderman. So mid-town makes sense.

My son travels best when we can have a suite, i.e., doors that close between us and him at his bedtime, so he can have some relative darkness and quiet. So I have researched available suite hotels (that we can afford LOL) and have narrowed the list to the following. We have never stayed at any of them, so any and all opinions and suggestions are GREATLY appreciated: Omni Berkshire, The Benjamin, Affinia 50, Affinia Shelburne.

Also, any likely impact of the Marathon on our activities? Thoughts on kids' dining? We are on the foodie side, while he, alas, is a HUGELY picky eater.
