Sits the Hotel Wales. it is a bit out of the way but fun to see how New Yorkers with families live. Most of the private schools are in Carnegie Hill so the neighborhood is loaded with families, kid friendly restaurants and clothing stores. It is a bus ride to mid town but a lovely one down Fifth Avenue. Fifth Avenue is one black from hotel!(Ask concierge where to get a "metro card" to make life on public trans easier!)
The hotel is old, the rooms not anything special but the staff is lovely and the price is right! it is also nice to come home to a quiet neighborhood after a day of sightseeing bustling NYC!
