Where to stay in New York

Guys,

My son wants to take his wife to New York for her 30th birthday. Thing is, I haven't a clue what areas of New York are considered better than others.

Of course price is a factor, but one thing he doesn't want to do is book a flight/hotel to find out they can't walk out of the hotel for fear of being mugged or worse.

I apologise if my assumption that certain areas of New York are dodgy causes offence, but I feel I need explain my son has special needs (both my son and his wife are profoundly deaf and my son has additional handicaps in relation to learning difficulties) so I really need advice here guys.

Hope you can help me out.

I would search some travel sites and possibly a travel agent. They would have the best knowledge on where to stay and what hotel could accomidate the special needs issue. My sister and nephew are both in wheelchairs and have to do extensive research before they travel. Sorry I am not more help.

What are they interested in doing while in New York? Are they used to talking public transportation? I don't know enough about your son's and wife's interests but there are many different organizations that can help answers travel questions or point you in the right direction.

I really trust Trip Advisor, they have never let me down. They have forums where you can ask questions and I found that really helpful.

I would consider def using a travel agency, being a fellow new yorker the city (manhattan) is usually the main point of interest. Dont fall for "cheap" alt hotels within the other boroughs it is a very different experience than a city stay.

I would not stay at anything less than a 4 star hotel in NYC - and yes a decent hotel is very pricy! If he wants to stay very central, then I'd suggest staying in the "theater district" which includes Times Square.

The Marriott hotels are all nice, I wish I could think of the names of the other hotels I've stayed at.

Ah, NY...in the top five most infested cities in the U.S....with bedbugs.

Check the beds real good, and keep your crap in the bathroom...they don't like non carpeted open flooring.

And def. get a guide of some sorts.

I live in NC and had to drive to NY and back in one day...took me 26 hours because I got lost. Not a good place to get lost if you've never been. Too much congestion/traffic/people.

Ah. New York City.

Nevermind, I unfortunately have no recommendations.

Agree with not foregoing on quality, there are some real dives, and I also second or third using tripadvisor for reviews.


Not a huge fan of the NYC Marriotts, but the Hilton in Times Square is perfectly fine. Lots to walk to and the subway is right there.

In Midtown the Kimberly is a favorite, the Benjamin is also nice, the W is over-rated, but has a fantastic bar. Easy subway access, lots of good restaurants in the area.

In the Meatpacking district is the Standard, it's a boutique hotel and trendy. Another boutique to try is Kimpton -- have not stayed at any of their NYC locations, but have in other cities.

Across the river in Jersey City is the Hyatt, pretty views of the city, nice rooms, and right next to Exchange Place (public transit).
