"The City that Never Sleeps" always has something exciting going on 24 hours a day - and that's because it's one of the world's biggest capitals of fashion, business, arts, and entertainment. You're going to need to get your rest in one of the slew of excellent hotels in NYC after you're done seeing a Broadway musical, browsing the Metropolitan Museum of Art, sampling the authentic food in New York City's Little Italy and Chinatown, and paddling a boat in Central Park.
Seeing the Sites
The island of Manhattan is small, so if you're looking for NYC hotels, it doesn't really matter where you stay. Whether you're uptown or downtown at any of the great hotels in Manhattan, it's only a short subway ride away from all of New York City's best attractions. Start off with visiting one of the most famous icons: The Statue of Liberty! The boat ride out to Liberty Island has stunning views of Manhattan and Brooklyn from New York Harbor. You can also get a taste of American history by taking a boat to Ellis Island nearby. After historical sightseeing, head uptown to take in another great view of the city -- from the top of the Empire State Building!
Eating and Drinking
New York City is one of the world's culinary capitals, so you should arrive in the Big Apple with a big appetite. Try quintessential New York foods like the Famous Original Ray's Pizza in Midtown, a hot dog from Nathan's Famous at One Penn Plaza, and a piece of rich New York cheesecake from Junior's near Times Square. After reveling in culinary delights, sleep at one of the cheap hotels in NYC; you'll need to rest up for your next big-city meal and adventure!
