The Plaza

In one of the best locations in NYC, the Plaza is located right at the tip of Central Park if you want a nature getaway while amidst the concrete jungle.

Stay a couple nights or just head in for a visit to grab a bite to eat or to snap a quick picture.

The Chelsea Hotel

If you are looking for somewhere famous, high-class, and a little edgier the Chelsea is the hotel for you. Another historic landmark in the city, many artists types have stayed or visited the Chelsea such as: Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, Allen Ginsberg, and Mark Twain. Although updates have been stagnant in the previous years, the Chelsea has currently changed ownership, Ed Scheetz, so expectations are that the Chelsea will be better than ever.
