4 star – Secret Hotel – Impressive hotel in the heart of midtown – 4 star – New York City

This impressive hotel in the heart of midtown will be the perfect base for your stay in the Big Apple. The hotel has air conditioning, Wi-Fi and for fitness buffs there is a health club. The hotel has its own restaurant if you fancy indulging in some excellent cuisine cooked by first rate chefs. There is also the option of private dining if you are staying with a large party. For those travelling with a cat or a dog, do not fret as pets are allowed on site. The staff are incredibly friendly and will make sure you have an unforgettable stay at the hotel.

Culture vultures should explore the astounding museum scene on offer in NYC. At the Metropolitan Museum of Art there are sculptures and paintings from almost every artistic movement. Furthermore there are Ancient artefacts imported from the world over. If you have children to entertain then the museum scene here goes the whole nine yards to make sure they are amused too. Every kid loves dinosaurs so take them to the American Museum of Natural History where they can view the colossal display of prehistoric dinosaur bones, and learn about the theory of evolution.

If you’re a basketball enthusiast then the ball is most definitely in your court. Head over to Madison Square Garden where NBA giants the New York Knicks play, and catch them facing some of America’s best basketball teams. If basketball is not your thing, Madison Square Garden plays hosts to some of the biggest touring international artists in the world meaning there is bound to be a concert well worth your attendance.

Times Square is a must on anyone’s New York to do list. The top time to go there is after sunset where you can experience a great amalgamation of incredibly bright advertisements lighting up the concrete jungle.

If you’re in need of some retail therapy then Macy’s is the place to go. It is a huge shopping chain offering a great variety of department stores. It covers those who are on a budget, and also those looking for upscale designer clothing.

Within close proximity of Macy’s lies Koreatown, an amazing enclave of superb Korean cuisine where you can experience some of New York’s finest eateries and bakeries. I would recommend trying the Ho-dduk, a taste bud tingling Korean donut, at recently opened Grace Street. It contains cinnamon, walnuts and melted brown sugar, and you have the option to add a scoop of ice cream.
