This being our first trip to New York we were not sure about the best area to stay. Trailfinders suggested and booked the Metro for us and we were delighted with the location and amenities.
Like other travellers we walked miles and miles, by far the best way to see and appreciate NYC, although by the 4th day we did take the subway a couple of times as we still had so much to see. The room was more than adequate, we only spent sleeping time in the room. The breakfasts were fantastic, self serve from 6am to 11 am, one day we had an early start and managed a second breakfast. So long as you are able to walk a few miles each day you can walk to most of the main sights from the hotel, we took the subway down to the 9.11 memorial area and then back up to central park, that would have been too much to walk in one day. The roof top bar was very lively, the staff in general were very helpful and I would not hesitate to use the Metro Hotel again if I return to NYC. Do not be afraid to explore the side streets and less known areas of the city during the day time, you can see some very interesting buildings and little gardens. DO NOT MISS THE TOP OF THE ROCK. Best view in the city. Grand Central audio tour, great. 9.11 memorial, very moving.
