Home to the Empire State Building, Times
Square, the Statue of Liberty and many other tourist attractions, New York is
undoubtedly one of the most exciting cities in the world. We explore some of
the best that New York has to offer.
With amazing sights to be seen, lots of
world class shows, beautiful architecture to take in and plenty of wonderful restaurants
to dine in New York ticks all the boxes! Not to mention of course a seemingly
endless variety of shops including the world's biggest department store, Macy's.
Where to Stay in the Big Apple?
We decided that we wanted to stay in a
central location and what better place to choose than the bustling heart of New
York; the famous Times Square! Surrounded by neon lights, giant electronic
billboards, Broadway theaters, and television studios, Times Square is amazing.
With this location in mind, we decided to
stay at the Millennium Broadway Hotel; and we couldn’t have made a better
choice! Located in the heart of Broadway on West 44th Street, this hotel is
perfectly located for guests to experience a true taste of New York and be
within walking distance to some of the main attractions with Times Square just
a short 1-minute stroll away.
Although situated in the heart of the
bustling city, this 4-star luxury hotel consists of 626 spacious and
comfortable rooms, all boasting floor to ceiling windows. We were lucky enough
to stay on the top floor (52 stories high!) and the views of Times Square and
Mid-town, including a front row seat of the Empire State Building from our
hotel room were spectacular!
The Millennium Broadway Hotel has a wide
range of amenities you would expect from a hotel of this standard including a
24/7 fitness centre, valet parking, concierge desk, dry cleaning service and
WiFi. The Millennium Broadway Hotel has everything you need and more!
Before starting your busy day exploring the
amazing sights of New York, I would highly recommend a visit to the Restaurant
Charlotte conveniently located at the entrance to the hotel. Serving a vast
choice of hot and cold American breakfast options, including mouth-watering
pancakes, waffles or French toast, this restaurant will certainly set you up
for a great start to the day!
Exploring New York Attractions
Eager to explore the best of what the Big
Apple has to offer, we didn’t want to miss out on anything! After some research
into the sights that we wanted to visit, including the Empire State Building,
Top of The Rock, 9/11 Memorial museum, and many more, we came across the New York
From CityPass.com you can buy an easy to
use ticket booklet; which provides you with admission into the best tourist
attractions that New York has to offer. With so many sights to see, the
CityPass gives you the freedom to explore the New York attractions at extremely
good value for money. Not to mention the discount vouchers contained within the
booklet including 15% off both Macy’s and Bloomingdale's. It’s hard not to treat
Circle Line Cruises
Another great way to see the views and architecture
of New York, including the iconic Statue of Liberty, is by taking to the water with
Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises. Whilst Circle Line Sightseeing offers a wide
range of cruises to suit your own itinerary, we opted for the ‘Landmark
Cruise’, which I would highly recommend!
During this 90 minute cruise, we were able
to experience breathtaking views
of the Manhattan skyline including views of One
World Trade Center, Empire
State Building, Brooklyn Bridge, Wall Street, the Chrysler
Nations and the East
Village. My personal favourite part of the cruise was sailing only 100ft
away from the Statue of Liberty herself. There are so many picture-perfect moments on this
cruise. It’s not to be missed!
New York City has so much to offer and
there are endless possibilities when deciding where to eat, where to shop or what
show to see but with the central location of the Millennium Broadway Hotel
combined with the freedom of the NYC CityPass, New York is yours to explore and
