The Best of New York City

To enjoy the best of New York City, a weekend getaway would require that you choose accommodations in the Times Square area.

One of the best hotels in Times Square is the New York Marriott Marquis Hotel location on Broadway. Set in the theater district, this newly renovated hotel offers impeccable service and six excellent restaurants and lounges.

From the hotel you can enjoy a stroll along Fifth Avenue, visit Rockefeller Center, stop at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, or take an elevator ride to the top of the Empire State Building and relive the scene from the movie “An Affair to Remember.” Madison Square Garden is not far away and has a myriad of shops and restaurants as well. More importantly, however, is the nightlife in New York City.

For dining and dancing, the Rainbow Room at 30 Rockefeller Plaza can’t be beat for a thoroughly entertaining evening filled with friendly people, a great atmosphere, and wonderful cuisine. A great comedy club is the Times Square Arts Center. Here, you can enjoy comedic performances in addition to its Karaoke, which has drawn rave reviews from the crowds.

If you love jazz, there is a great supper club called Swing 46. Offering a wonderful menu, you can sit back and enjoy the entertainment. Open from 5PM to Midnight, Swing 46 will definitely put you “In the Mood!”

For an intimate dinner in one of the coolest places in Manhattan, try Zanzibar located at 645 9th Avenue. This club is unique in that it is offers lounge areas where you can actually lounge! With its huge sofas and ottomans, you can enjoy a delicious drink sitting by the fireplace and listen to the DJ play some way-out tunes.

Whether you prefer the bar scene, or wish to connect with throngs of people enjoying live band music at major nightclubs; New York has something for everyone.

For first time visitors, it’s a good idea to make reservations ahead of time especially for those clubs that are most popular. Remember too, you can always ask the concierge at your hotel where the hot spots are if you intend to “wing it.”

But no matter where you go, you will have a fantastic adventure! So, “Be a part of it – New York, New York!”
