I am going to new_york_city_(nyc) in 2 weeks. Can anyone recommend a hotel
The best hotel in NYC for anyone is really dependent on what they like in terms of activity and structure in a visit. We always stay at the Marriott Eastside on Lexington and 49th. It is an easy walk to Rockefeller Plaza, Broadway, Fifth Avenue, and Times Square. The subway is at the corner of 51st, so easy to pick up the 4 subway line and others to go to the Financial District or other places. It is close to Grand Central Station (42nd and Lexington) if you happen to arrive or leave from Grand Central.
The hotel has a fabulous staff (one of the friendliest I have ever encountered in a hotel), a great Concierge Lounge (with an outside deck on the 16th floor). It is close to good restaurants (one block from Smith & Wollensky and others) and also close by some great local eateries that don't charge the NYC prices but still have good food as their main clientele is the locals.
NYC is a great city no matter where you stay, so have fun!
