What a wonderful place to take in some of the best shows in the city! We've seen everything from Sister Act to Hamilton and quite a few in between. Aladdin, phantom of the Opera, Lion King, The Book of Mormon, Legally Blonde, and Wicked to name a few! Visit any of the box offices for last minute cheap seats! Take... More

We saw three Broadway productions during our stay. If I could be a bit critical, I'd like to suggest deleting one or two rows of seating and space the chairs a bit to at least allow you to cross your legs if you are so inclined or put your jacket on the back of your seat if you want. Other... More

Broadway is wonderful. You must go to at least one production while in New York. There is nothing like it anywhere else. We went to The Color Purple. Amazing! It was so well done. Go see it!!!

We saw Aladdin this trip and it was fantastic- a must do! Great acting, singing.. The top actors and singers, dancers from all over the world come to perform here so any show one sees is going to be great and a memorable experience. Next show we'll see will be The Lion King then School of Rock.

Broadway is vibrant, alive with the pulse of the city. Theaters on every corner. A bit crowded just prior to showtime and when the shows get out. A must see.

The children were so talented and inspiring. The main guy was funny and played his role so well along with all the other characters. Highly recommend this show. I left feeling very happy and impressed.

You cannot come to New York and miss Broadway- one of the main streets in New York with the classic hustle and bustle of tourists and locals combined. Absolutely must see a broadway show, or two!

Such a wonderful city to find entertainment! Saw two shows on the most recent trip and am already ready to return again! Always fun to ask the person sitting next to you what they have discovered about New York City!

Sorry, but my rating of Chicago at the Ambassador is "big disappointment ". The performances and music was good, but guess I am not cultured enough to appreciate absolutely no, I mean zero, stage props or scenery, and zero costume changes. I don't want to have to use my creative imagination that much. Until this experience I have loved every... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
