Top ways to experience Bryant Park
The area
Neighborhood: Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
How to get there
  • 42nd St – Bryant Park • 1 min walk
  • Times Square • 3 min walk

Hi there,

Me and my husband stayed at this hotel for one night. We wanted to have something special as it was his 31st birhtday. We booked our Deluxe Queen room with exterior (park) views and it was fantastic.

When we arrived, we realized that a mistake was made at some stage and we did not have the room we booked, the receptionist John changed it for the Deluxe Queen room with exterior views and kept the original price.

The room was fantastic with shower and bath, big bathroom, lots of natural light, TV, wifi, plugs, hairdresser, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body lotion, towels and ropes, everything you could ask for and more. A truly 4 star hotel. The views were impressive, even more at night and it was totally worth it to pay for the exterior view.

The room was tidy and clean. Everything was placed perfectly.

The location is fantastic if you want to travel around NYC.

In conclusions, for what I have seen in NY and other hotels I have been for more or less the same price as this one, I highly recommend the Bryant Park Hotel if you are planning to stay in a nice hotel in NYC

Myself and my daughter went to ice skate at 1pm on a Monday in November.
Tje whole experience was amazing. To rent skates was about $22 for 55 minutes! That's a really long time on the ankles! When we arrived it snowed lightly, such a pretty venue, right in the middle of midtown manhattan, we got amazing hot chocolate for $5. The ice scaring was so organised from picking up skates, skating and dropping off skates. All the staff were so very nice and helpful. And a big plus was the bathrooms were very clean and very available, as someone walking around the city endlessly will appreciate.
I would hughly recommend it as the best ice-skating in the city.

We happened upon Bryant Park on our way to Rockefeller Center and I'm so glad we did. Their Christmas Village ended up being the highlight of our early January trip to NYC. We skated, drank and ate there several times over our weekend getaway. I highly recommend the Casamigos bar and the cheesecake/funnel cake dessert inside the bar area. Skating is 'free' but costed $35 to rent skates since we were there during 'peak' pricing. That was ridiculous in my opinion, as I would have preferred to skate at Rockefeller for basically the same price. However, there was no line and the kids got right on the ice. They LOVED it and we could watch them while drinking cocktails in a heated space. Win win!

Thanks so much for your review, wonderful to hear you enjoyed your visit! We aren't a "free" rink, but we are NYC's only free admission ice skating rink, thanks to our partner Bank of America! Our peak pricing for skate rentals is $33, post-peak holiday season is $18, but even during peak season we are still less than the rink at Rockefeller Center, if that helps! We hope you return next season, and highly recommend returning this month and February if you can! A great time to skate!

Sure, the holiday market is there and the ice skating rink is open and filled with people but it’s a small park compared to Central Park which is not to be missed. The Christmas Market was fine but pricey with items that can be found elsewhere. It lacks the uniqueness of the Brooklyn Flea or other open markets in the more residential areas of NYC. Perhaps because it was cold and the wintery it was minus the charm of sitting there in the spring and fall. On the plus side it’s close to Times Square and Broadway and offers a respite from those busy areas. Also, the skating rink is appealing with all the tall buildings in the background. Still, if I want to ice skate I would prefer to do it in Central Park.

What a Lovely park. In the summer, it's great for sitting at one of the benches or tables with a cold beverage, snack and a book. It's very close to the public library and always has a lot of events going on. My favorite time to visit is in winter, when the Christmas market opens and there's free ice skating at the seasonal outdoor rink. Grab a steamy hot chocolate, peruse the beautiful and fun crafts and holiday gifts, and skate around with a gorgeous backdrop of the city. As you can imagine, it's quite popular so it gets crowded fairly often.
Came here for the Winter Village and it was super cool. Definitely suggest dropping in for a visit. They have a bunch of little shops set up in rows, as well as food truck style stops. Think I sampled a little bit from every place but absolutely loved Destination Dumplings. Tried the chicken dumplings. They are delicious to say the least.

Fun Christmas-time experience just a few blocks south of Times Square. A great couples spot, to spend time walking through what must be 100+ shops, creating a real Christmas Village experience. Several small food stands, a pub and a sit-down restaurant, plus an ice skating rink all in the park with benches and small tables for a quick break. Feels so removed from the rush that is NYC. Guaranteed to bring some holiday spirit. Please let me know if this is helpful.

Bryant Park is a great park located in the heart of midtown serving as a calm oasis in the hustle and bustle of the city. This month I have had the opportunity to visit the Christmas markets on a few occasions. As in past years, this village offers an array of brands meeting various gift needs. I took further comfort in seeing both shop owners and park personnel taking steps to clean various areas of the park. This aspect of cleanliness has kept me a regular visitor through all four seasons. For the present moment the Christmas Village and Ice Skating Rink is a nice break and/ or ending to the day!

Bryant Park is a slightly more humble place to visit in NYC, but it has so much there and nearby to offer. If you're around during the winter months, the winter village is great. If you're around in the summer, you might catch opera in the park or some other grand activities. Always a nice stop when you're out and about!

A favorite park in NYC. A wonderful urban oasis, surprisingly lush and cool amidst the concrete jungle. But what makes Bryant Park special is the people watching g and sense of community. You can pick up a newspaper in the reading corner, join a game of table tennis or draw your own memories in the art room. The tables and chairs are inviting for a picnic or just relaxing after a day of visiting midtown tourist sights. This is a truely great example of what urban parks In all major cities should aspire to.

My wife and I attended Broadway in Bryant Park in September 2021. It was fantastic. There were performances by Lion King, Phantom of the Opera, Mrs. Doubtfire, Diana, Six, Dear Evan Hanson, Aladdin, Waitress, Chicago and many others. It lasted two hours and my wife and I really enjoyed it and the weather held up. We were required to show our proof of vaccination and ID. Apart from this special event, Bryant Park is a fun place year-round with a lot of things to see and do.
