The hotel is ideally located and only a short walk to most of the main attractions. We watched the New York Jets at the MetLife Stadium and used the specially laid on coaches from the Port Authority Bus Terminal. This was the cheapest ($10 return) and easiest way to get to the match. We also used the hop-on, hop-off buses to see more of the city and to get us to places like the 9/11 site and Central Park. As we were only in New York for a few days, we chose the 48 hour hop-on, hop-off package which also included the hop-on, hop-off ferry which gave us excellent views of the Statue of Liberty and the whole of Manhattan's spectacular skyline. Taking advise from other reviewers, we arrived at the Empire State Building at 9am and didn't have to queue for anything. By the time we left the building at 11am, the queues were long. The 9/11 memorial site is free of charge and well worth a visit. We purchased tickets for the museum when we got there and were able to go straight in. We were there for a good 2 hours but could have stayed longer if we weren't on a tight schedule. One of our favourite trips was to the Top of the Rock in the evening. As tickets are limited in time slots, the observation area was quiet and peaceful and the night time views of the city were magical. There were 8 people in our party and the trick to eating out with a large groups is to eat at unpopular times, i.e. breakfast after 10am or your evening meal no later than 5pm. Don't forget the tip of 18% - 20%!
