4 thoughts on “Top Best Hotels for Experiencing New York’s Times Square”

  1. My brother now lives in New York, so I’ve paid him a few visits. I usually visit in September or October. The first time I visited in December, which was cold, but very festive. The lighting of the Christmas tree at the Rockerfella Centre was awesome – though very busy. The first time I visited I stayed at the Double Tree Hilton on Time Square, because I wanted to be right in the heart of Times Square. Since my brother has moved there I tend to stay in Brooklyn or Williamsburg instead of Manhattan, as accommodation prices are pretty expensive, but the subway is cheap, really reliable and easy to use.

    One event that you haven’t mentioned is the Global Citizen Festival, which takes place in September, and has done for the past 6 years. It’s a free concert that takes place in Central Park (the only concert that is allowed to take place in Central Park). My brother helps organise these concerts, so I might be a bit bias, but they are free, they are in Central Park and they have big name acts like Usher, Pearl Jam, Rihanna and Beyonce perform there. If you happened to be visiting in September, I definitely recommend checking it out.

    September is also a awesome month to visit because it’s the shoulder month (after the summer rush, but before the Christmas crazy season), so prices tend to be slightly cheaper, and the city is a little less insane, with less line ups for attractions like the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty.

    Another good tip; if you want to go up the lantern of the statue of liberty then you must book your tickets in advance online, at least 3 months beforehand. You’re also more likely to get these tickets if travelling in the shoulder months.

    There is so much to do in NYC. I could probably go on and on! It’s an awesome, crazy city. I’m not sure I could live there, but it’s definitely worth a visit.

  2. One of my best friends live in New York City hence Ive been visiting her regularly in the past couple of years. New York caught my heart straight from the beginning. It’s just that place that has something nice to offer to anyone going there. I stayed in the W Times Square Hotel, my room was nice, modern and the view to Times Square was just spectacular. I could just sit by the window for hours watching the crowd buzzing on the streets. From the hotel everything is easily accessible, shopping, bars, restaurants, museums whatever you need is right at your footstep. Strangely enough my favourite past time was to go down to the subway station and watch all the various street performers. If you want to go out, The Meatpacking District is the place to be, can’t wait to go back again.

  3. I lived in Manhattan last summer and saw quite a few Broadway shows. I plan to visit this summer and the Paramount seems like a great choice. It’s right in the theatre district, so I could get to the box office early for ticket deals, rush tickets, and the daily ticket lotteries. I love that it’s in the Times Square area, so it is close to 9 metro lines at three different stops. It’s also not far from Bryant park, a nice, smaller alternative to Central Park, and the venue for Broadway in the Park every summer. Broadway in the Park is free and a great way to sample multiple Broadway shows in one sitting. Be sure to get there early to snag a chair; it’s worth it!
