NEW YORK CITY. The name is ubiquitous with luxury, nightlife, shopping, and being in the center of the action. To do this great city up right, finding a well located hotel that will pamper your body and soul after a full day sightseeing is essential.
In travel, as in real estate, location is king and midtown allows the traveler to take in MOMA, the Empire State Building, Grand Central Station and Radio City Music Hall, to name just a few must see sites.
The Dylan Hotel is ideally located for the business or pleasure traveler. A mere 5-minute walk from Grand Central Station and 5th Avenue along with several subway lines. Rooms are luxurious with high ceilings, marble bathrooms, and complimentary Wi-Fi while the common areas offer a business center, laundry service and on-site restaurant.

Every hotel on this list has one important feature in common; location! Midtown is THE epicenter for the must see lists of New York. Envision your own New Year’s Eve in Times Square. Watch the taping of the Today show when you stop by Rockefeller Center. Step inside St. Patrick’s Cathedral and look up to spot the red hats on the ceiling, or stroll to the United Nations building in awe of the policies and procedures put in place to aid the world. All this is yours when you stay with Hipmunk.
