Great hotel in the heart of midtown
Posted Sep 5, 2016
I just spent 3 nights at the Lotte New York Palace hotel and was upgraded to a room with of St. Patrick's cathedral. The location could not have been better, as you are in the middle of everything. Within blocks of Rockefeller Center, St Patrick's, Grand Central Station, and great shopping and restaurants. I even walked to the MET which was only 30 minutes. Nearby subway station is convenient also. You can connect to the Air Train to JFK, if you like.
The hotel itself is spotless, the room I had was large, and the view of the back of St. Patrick's made the trip for me. There are small delis if you want a quick bite, or very nice restaurants in the immediate area. I would recommend going to the observation deck at Rockefeller Center; the views are amazing. I also enjoyed the Circle Line Best of NYC cruise around Manhattan.
