Some favorite hotels


One of my favorite hotels but it is downtown next to the WTC site but close to the subway (underground) with a quick trip to midtown. Very close to Battery Park (ferry to Statue of Liberty) and Southstreet Sea Port. Discover an ideal way to relax before dinner at our nightly complimentary Manager’s Reception. Enjoy a cold drink and experience our stunning hotel atrium.

Holiday Inn Mid-Town


Nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood, The Holiday Inn Midtown 57th Street is conveniently located to famous New York attractions. Just three blocks from Central Park and Carnegie Hall with Lincoln Center nearby. Situated within the Theater District, a Broadway show is a moment away. Fabulous shopping at Tiffany’s, Niketown, Fifth Avenue, and 57th Street boutiques. JFK Airport and LaGuardia Airport are only 45 minutes away from this Manhattan hotel location.


Marriott Courtyard

Dinner at the top of the Marriott in Time Square is indeed a very special experience. for airline fare comparison / / 

All can yield hotel opportunities at far less than normal pricing

Some of the most delicious food we have had recently! 


Peter Lugger…It’s in Brooklyn but you can take public transportation 


Here is an interesting pizza place in Times Square area. Used to be a church. Pizza is pretty good


This restaurant revolves and is in the Marriott Marquis Hotel. There is also a bar on top with great views. Top of the Rock (lounge)also great views


There is a place in Brooklyn called Pinocchio’s. It’s in a funny spot. No train near it. The Express bus can get you there BUT there will be no bus back after dinner. There are no yellow taxis in that area of Brooklyn. You would have to call a car service which would cost at least  $75.00 plus tolls one way. This restaurant is good Italian Food and lots of fun.
