New York New York – Hotel
Seeing as I have now been back from my New York holiday for a couple of weeks I thought I better tell you all about it. I am going to divide it into sections starting with the hotel first, then I will look at flights, tours, restaurants and shopping.
We stayed at the Gallivant Times Square which is rated as a 4*. The hotel is on West 48th Street between 7th and 8th Avenue. If you know New York at all you will know this is a perfect location to be! If you haven’t been before then I will take you somewhere you may recognise. Picture leaving our hotel and turning right, right again, cross a road then there you are on Times Square – by the famous red steps.
We booked two rooms – one presidential suite and one deluxe room. The rooms were both great. We spent most of the time in our suite as it was huge! You walked into a large living room with enough seating for 8 people. To the back of the living room there was a large balcony. This would have been great in better weather but it has just snowed heavily so we couldn’t really get out there. Off the living room was a large double bedroom then a smaller double bedroom through another door. There was a spacious shower room and toilet. In the main bedroom there was another door taking you out to a second balcony which wrapped around the whole suite! It really was an experience, the best room in the hotel!
A lot of our packages have a couple of days in New York before a cruise so I would happily recommend this to all of my clients. Here are some pictures so you can get an idea of the suite.
