Five blocks from Times Square and three blocks from Central Park, the Sheraton New York could not be located in a more perfect place for the New York visitor. Cheap hotels are not easy to find in Manhattan, so seeing the price of the room for one night (approx $330/night in November ’09) can set you back. But in Manhattan, you get what you pay for. Located at 7th & 52nd, the well-appointed hotel will give you the perfect central location for walking the city or navigating on the subway just across 53rd.
The large lobby is well-designed with a sports bar and bistro restaurant flanking the marble floors of the entry way with room to gather your group. With Wi-fi in the public lobby area, you can sit and enjoy the people-watching while on your computer. (If you’ve ever been to New York, the people-watching should be classified as its own sport.) My biggest complaint about the Sheraton New York is the lack of Wi-fi in the guest rooms, but if you’re staying alone or have only one computer to connect, high-speed internet access is available for a daily fee with their provided ethernet cable.
If location and staying in a comfortable, well-appointed room are your biggest concerns when staying in Manhattan, consider the Sheraton New York.
