Known as the "Crossroads of the World", Times Square is a dazzling intersection famed for its lavish neon signs, grand theaters, and pulsating crowds. Whether you're on your way to a Broadway show, a buzzing bar or one of the family-friendly restaurant that line the streets, look out for iconic structures like the Paramount Building and One Times Square – site of the celebrated New Year's Eve ball drop.
One of the art capitals of the world, Chelsea has literally hundreds of renowned galleries to explore, including the Gagosian and the Gladstone. A taste of New York life can be had at Chelsea Market, a vast warren of artisan food stalls. The High Line, an elevated promenade, offers fantastic views of this upscale neighbourhood, while the Chelsea Piers – intended destination of the Titanic – is a great Manhattan landmark.
Think "New York City" and the sights of Midtown East will spring to mind . There's the towering Art Deco splendor of the Chrysler Building, the gleaming edges of the Empire State Building, and the opulence of Grand Central – arguably the world's most famous train station. For top flight shopping, make your way to Saks Fifth Avenue, and you can even walk the corridors of power at the UN Headquarters.
Anyone visiting the Big Apple will want to explore Midtown West – this is where the razzle dazzle of Times Square is, after all. Take in a show on Broadway or, if you fancy giving your mind a workout, take a tour of the celebrated Museum of Modern Art (or MoMA). And when your tummy starts rumbling, check out the French brasseries, sushi bars and Russian eateries on Restaurant Row.
Sandwiched between the winding Hudson River and lush Central Park, Manhattan's Upper West Side is home to New York's most exclusive high-rise apartments, as well as Columbia University. The American Museum of Natural History makes it a history-buff's dream, while the Lincoln Center showcases everything from opera to jazz. A stroll around Riverside Park in full bloom is a fine way to spend a sunny day.

Had pleasent stay and went by the guest review... Being a new property its quiet clean, bed is comfortable and well thought facilities. Since I reached bit early could get an early check-in, had to wait few hours as per hotel policy. Strict on their hotel policy, rest all is fine.
"Excellent value for money"

The location was excellent especially for all those wishing to be close to Times Square. Subway was just around the corner. Service was good. People were smiling and friendly all the time. They even had a free gym and laundry for all to use. Computers downstairs were free and we could even take printouts,
"The location takes the cake!"

Had nice stay at the holiday inn midtown.....excellent loacation...right between fifth and sixth avenue and extremely close to the empire state building and macys! The hotel seems to eb have been renovated recently..the size of the room was quite decent by New York standards.....the service was however extremely disappointing....there isn't a luggage rack in the room. The guy at the front desk first said they didn't have a microwave and tried to send me off to the restaurant...the restaurant guy sent me back to the front desk and then suddenly a microwave became available.....the free internet is also a plus! Might stay here again...just because of the location!!
