Restaurants, bars and lounges, a full-service business center, boutiques, theater ticket and sightseeing services are located on the premises. [Review]

Hudson Hotel

Hudson Hotel is a hip boutique hotel on West 58th near Columbus Circle that folks either love or hate. We love it. Once a residence for women, the 1,000 room hotel offers edgy design for hip hotel guests. The tiny rooms aren't for everyone, but this "in" place to hang holds its own in the New York Hotel scene. [Review]

The Jolly Master Hotel, Madison Towers is walking distance from Times Square, Empire State Building and Grand Central Station. Although conveniently located, the hotel is far enough away from the hubbub so that you don’t feel overwhelmed in the crowd as soon as you walk out of the door. It’s in a residential neighborhood called Murry Hill, which is busy during the day but relatively quiet at night. There’s a doorman and the hotel feels safe. [Review]

The Majestic Hotel New York is a private and distinctive hotel with an individual sense of style that effortlessly combines a thoroughly fashionable environment with gracious, attentive service. The Majestic offers a premier mid-Manhattan address just steps from Times Square, Broadway theater, Rockefeller Center, Carnegie Hall, Central Park, midtown's financial, entertainment, and publishing districts and the city’s best shopping along Fifth Avenue. Amenities include everything you’d expect plus little extras like in-room electronic safes large enough for your laptop, individual climate control, The New York Times delivered daily and an in-room Bose Wave sound system.

The Mark, with its understated elegance and prestigious address in Manhattan's exclusive Upper Eastside on Madison Avenue, is within a few steps of Central Park, the city's most exclusive shopping district and the famed Museum Mile.

Room at The Millenium Hilton

The Millenium Hilton is conveniently located in the heart of the downtown business district, and is easily accessible to many of Manhattan's popular tourist attractions. For guest comfort, the Millenium Hilton has designated 87% of hotel rooms "non-smoking". The combination of smoking and non-smoking rooms encompasses all room types and view vantage points.

Walking distance to: Times Square, Theatre District, Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center, NBC Studios, Diamond District, Theatre District, Patrick's Cathedral, Grand Central Station, 5th Avenue shopping and other major NYC attractions.

Skyline Hotel - This very affordable Three Star Full Service Hotel was totally renovated within the last couple of years. It's located at the West Side of Central Park within a walking distance to Broadway and 42nd Street, Broadway Theatres, Rockefeller Center, Circle Line Cruises, Intrepid Museum, Cruise Ship Terminal, Javits Convention Center and other major NYC attractions.

Trump Towers NYC - Like all guests, I was welcomed to the shimmering Trump Towers with a fruit and goodies basket, personalized stationary, business cards, and complimentary water labled "Trump Ice." There were "T"'s on everything from a gold seal on toilet paper rolls to comfy, monogrammed slippers. Never had the luxe life literally been so luxe. Trump's "Focus on the customer" philosophy takes on unprecedented meaning here. [Review]

W New York Union Square Accommodations

Housed in New York's old Guardian Life Building, the W New York Union Square has (so far) been our favorite W hotel. Completely stylish, the 270-room hotel embraces the gorgeous architecture and feel of the historic building, which has undergone extensive renovations. The overall feel is reminiscent of the grandeur of an early 20th century hotel with a distinctly modern touch. Details such as the gold-topped Corinthian marble columns found in the hotel's ballroom are unique - details that just can't be found in newly constructed buildings. The elaborate ceilings and immense iron staircase in the lobby are breathtaking. [Review]


The Red Coach Inn is centrally located in Niagara Falls overlooking a park that skirts an area of the upper and very wild rapids that lead to the actual falls. Our room overlooked this spectacular view making it difficult to pull our very road weary bodies away from the window to watch its power, and what we couldn’t see we could hear. The roar of the dangerous and powerful rapids was strangely calming even knowing if one were swept away that their body would never be found. [Review]
