    Ah New York New York. Wonderful place and wonderful people. I long to go back there.

    There are tons of hotels around Times Square and I must say that unless you pay mega bucks, you'll be surprised at the small area of your room. It's never bothered me though because it's NEW YORK! as BUTTERHEAD1 mentions though, not all are great and I recall one place where well lets just say the nocturnal noises were hard to ignore whilst trying to sleep.

    Be kinda careful with the cabs too only ever official ones and even then you'll get more than the odd one who will milk the tourist dollars. I particularly enjoyed the one who couldn't find the empire state building yeah right SURE.

    I could spend months just staring at the window and watching the people go by and being a night person I loved walking round. Everyone told me it would be dangerous but, and perhaps it was my inexperience, I felt fine walking about NYC at night. Granted I wasn't going far off the beaten track though.

    Just a great place, love it love it love it.

    I love it. I love it. I love it.

    I've stayed at Central Park South, the Saint Moritz. It's a decent hotel, with nothing incredible to recommend it, but nothing to scare you away either.

    We've also stayed on 34th street. Nice location directly across from the Gardens.

    The Times Square area is much MUCH nicer than it used to be, so don't hesitate to stay there.

    China Town is down on the east side and no, you won't smell the food. It's a neat place to walk through, and very near Little Italy (or what is left of it).

    Be absolutely certain to walk (we walk EVERYWHERE in NY) to the Village and visit Dean and De Luca. Yeah, I'm a freak, but do it anyway. LOL.

    The Village is where much of my heart lives (that part that isn't in Maine or Ireland).

    New York is incredible, magnificent and totally awesome.

    If you are going without kids, then go to Lucky Chengs in the village.

    Oooh, lucky, the Broadway area is nice as is Times Square. Very convienent. Last time I was there I stayed at the Sheridan Centre, small rooms but o.k. I don't know if there is a Hampton Inn there but at least you know what you're going to get! You will have a blast, the museums are the best, the shows, the shopping I'm having trip envy!!!!
