I'm planning a trip to NYC in August and have looked at tons of hotels including the Wellington, for that price range check out The Roosevelt Hotel. It seems a lot nicer and has great reviews on tripadvisor. Im almost positive thats where we're going to end up staying.
thanks everyone for your replies i think i will pick the safe option and stay at holiday inn express as i stayed there last year and had no problem i thinks its better to pay a bit more least i know its clean better safe than sorry thanks for all your suggestions
turbodiva, where do you want to stay? Do you want to shop along Fifth or Madison or check out the village? Because there are nice hotels all over the city depending on where you want to stay. If you are staying longer, there are also hotels/apartments that do month long rentals. Just don't stay at the Penn since it's in a really crowded commercial area and not very nice.
it will be my boyfriend first trip to new york so i want be near major attractions like times square, empire building rockfellar etc unfortunately 6 nights will be my limit as im off mallorca in two weeks for one week holiday in the sun with my boyfriend so wont be able afford more than 6 nights in new york
The Holiday Inn should be fine since you'll be midtown and it will be easy for you to get around. You've been here before so you're a local Have fun and if you are interested in shopping sales (don't know when you're coming) there are websites you can check to see what sample sales will be going on when you're here!
