My mom and two daughters chose this hotel for a girls trip to New York. The location was great! We walked to American Girl doll store, Carmines for dinner ( a must!), Central Park, Times Square, and Metro stop is right next door. It looks out over Times Square which my girls were delighted to see the lights and snow! Having a bigger room was totally worth the price and I highly recommend this hotel. Front desk staff was great about making recommendations for restaurants, and don't miss seeing Annie (the broadway show next door to theater)! Perfect first trip to new york for my little ones!
