Exceptionally decorated with a magnificent tree as usual. The crowds were more than normal. Very difficult to move around. More like a mob scene. Somehow they need better crowd control.

What a treat to see the tree, the ice skating...but the crowds were enormous and hard to negotiate. We finally found a path to see the ice skating but it was difficult to move anywhere else.

It's a big Christmas tree, and a not too big ice rink. To be honest, around Christmas time, and not going up the tower, I do not see what is so great about this place.

It was a beautiful and bustling plaza. I wish I was here when the tree is up though. It's a lovely place for a picnic lunch.

Our guide Rodney was bursting with information about the Rockefeller Center. To be honest we weren't sure what to expect but it was a great too and about the history and art around the Center. It was quick, indoors and out - highly recommend

The VIP ice skating experience was expensive, but amazing (apart from the machine- produced hot chocolate!!) But there was no crowd control on the ice. In Europe, there would be marshals and helpers. There were none!! Some stupid teenage put me in bed for a week. Did I deserve that? USA. Wake up! You are behind the rest of the... More

The christmas tree is amazing!!!! Go there early, because it is getting sooo crowded in the late evening. You can go iceskating or watch a projection on the other building. Very nice!!!

Much better than the ESB and here's why, Less people More room Better views Less hassle Fantastic plaza If you climb one tall building in NYC then this is the one to visit. Superior in every way apart from overall height.

A nice place to stop by and see the ice rink and tree at Christmastime. Otherwise, there's not a whole lot to see.

It's always pretty this time of year. Our boys did the VIP ice skating... Expensive but worth avoiding the hassle & crowd. What totally stunk is they made both me & my husband pay the $120 per ticket so we could take them in!!! We didn't even skate - just sat in the tent, but it was way too crowded... More
