Our first vistit to NYC, was great. Saw "The Lion King". It was a really great show. This hotel is spacious. Very clean and friendly staff. Elevators were quick. Security is good on the first floor. You must show your key even to enter the building. Concierge was a little stuck-up. Breakfast buffet is firstname.lastname@example.org. Order a-la-carte. Got a rate of 249 a night, but cost 299 after taxes and fees. Beware of taxi drivers in unmarked Lincoln town cars. Got ripped off one time. Paid $40 for a fare from Penn staion that should have only cost $7. Doubletree is in a great location. Nearby restaurants include, McDonalds, Bubba Gump Shirmp, TGI Fridays, Appleby's. I'm already making plans to stay here again next year. All in all, it was a great trip. Street vendors are willing to bargin. Got a yankees baseball cap for $5. McDonalds value meals are $5. Planet Hollywood was a little pricey. Toys are us is a must see if you have children. Took the Grayline tour. It was well worth the money. Get there early to see Empire state building or statue of Liberty. Experienced very little wait time for Empire, but the wait for Statue of liberty was almost an hour. Watch your back. There are a lot of people in NYC. But it was well worth it. LOVED the Doubletree!!!
