Where to stay in New York
From internationally acclaimed five star hotels to cheap and cheerful art deco apartments, your choices when it comes to accommodation in New York are endless. For easy access to the main boroughs, book your stay near Midtown, SoHo or Times Square or, if you'd rather save funds for shopping and sightseeing, consider staying over the bridge in Brooklyn.
There are countless hotel options in New York City, which is made up of five boroughs, with Manhattan regarded as the epicentre. If sightseeing is a priority and you don’t have a lot of time, Midtown West is an ideal choice as it puts you in walking distance of Times Square, Broadway, the Empire State Building and Central Park. Upper Manhattan (The Upper West Side and Upper East Side) offers a reprieve from the crowds and craziness of midtown, and is an easy subway ride to the action. For those on a tight budget, head to Harlem or Queens.
Food lovers and those who love to shop will appreciate the cool vibe of SoHo and the Meatpacking district. For celebrity spotting, stay in the West Village. Hugh Jackman and Sarah Jessica Parker are among the A-listers who call this area home. Brooklyn is proving a popular holiday haven, particularly Williamsburg, which is the hipster capital of America and jampacked with great restaurants, bars and quirky stores.
