For my Christmas present my husband booked a trip back to NYC and we stayed at our favorite hotel, the Omni. The best value for the location by far! Right in between 5th Avenue and Madison Avenue shopping and sight seeing. Also close to Central Park and subways. The first week of January is the BEST time to visit NYC for lower prices and the crowds are much smaller since New Years and Christmas is over. You still get to enjoy the decorations as they're still up! Can't wait to come back!
