Wow! Ok, Interferencers . . . help.

So my first trip to New York is coming up.

My friend who I'm going with has, as he put it, "certain tastes" and so he gave me a list of hotels. He's offered to shoulder the majority of the bill, but he's leaving it up to me to pick which one.

New Yorkers and those in the New-York-know, help!

Which one should I pick? (Keep in mind I've never been to New York before in my life!)

Well both times I've been to NY i've been budget conscious and stayed at the red roof inn on 34th street. Its right round the block from the empire state, a short walk to times square, and 5th avenue, and the best korean food i've ever eaten!!!

The rooms were huge, two queen size beds, clean nice bathroom and a good view of the street

but anyway, thats for the budget, I don't know anything about SWANKY hotels like these!

Neither do I! The only time I've EVER stayed in a nice hotel is when they were doing previews of the rooms, at low, low discount prices, when the Venetian openend in Las Vegas. And that was years and years and years ago.

But that was a really nice room at the Venetian; mirrors everywhere . . . everywhere.

All of these are nice hotels. I've stayed in each of these in different cities.

The W has "intimacy kits" in the room.

Since the hotels are all comparable, I'd go with which neighborhood you're most interested in. Times Square is...well, Times Square. The heart of NYC but it wouldn't be my choice. Too noisy.

Union Square is a great downtown neighborhood to explore, easy access to other great neighborhoods.

Chelsea is hip, arty and gay/gay-friendly.

I'd personally go with Chelsea or Union Square. But take your pick--they're all good.

Wow...I'll probably never get to stay in classy hotels like these. I'll echo joyfulgirl's Chelsea suggestion though. I don't really spend much time in Times Square myself...I just don't find it all that appealing. I prefer areas that are a lot less "touristy".

I used to live near Union Square. It has the most amazing Farmer's Market. I miss it.

hahahahah Well, my friend and I are actually just friends and nothing more, so I think those kits would be wasted on us.

Even though this is in one of the Westin Times Square suites, this all by itself could sway my decision:

That's where Doozer stayed and it was nice; we were at the Marriott - 5th Avenue at 40th Street directly across from Bryant Park and the NY City Library...a very nice location...good luck.

Big Grin

I am a big fan of the Westin Heavenly Bed (almost bought one when we moved into our current residence). With that being said, I think the W locations are better.

I think it comes down to what you guys are going to do in the city. What is the mission of the trip? Is it to be tourists, or going to shows/concerts, etc.
