Exploring New York Hotels with Pool FacilitiesNew York is one of only two true Alpha cities (London is the other one) and it earns that accolade through its unswerving vitality and sheer number of attractions, restaurants and hotels. Though fully recovered post-911, the Big Apple never forgets and today sits a fitting memorial to the Twin Towers at the existing World Trade Center site. In all areas are a variety of lodging options ranging from the affordable to the height of luxury with all amenities.
Manhattan Island is where it’s at in New York City. It is home to the bulk of the action and features the best hotels with the best amenities. This famous borough is one of iconic sights and wide boulevards—think Fifth Avenue—and the area is always abuzz. Manhattan is a collection of funky neighbourhoods, while the other four boroughs that make up the city—the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island—each have their own flavour and districts.
Sights nearbyThe Big Apple is loaded with highlights, from the world renowned Empire State Building and famous art museums, to the massive Central Park. Sights can be found in all boroughs, though Manhattan Island has the pick of them.
- Central ParkNew York’s iconic park is a major go-to point for visitors and residents. Set in the middle of Manhattan Island along Fifth Avenue, it covers many city blocks and is overlooked by big hotels, including the highly rated four-star Park Central New York. It is ideal for strolling, jogging, rollerblading, cycling, or picnicking (during the day) and has a host of attractions. Chief among these are the Belvedere Castle, the zoo and Shakespeare Garden.
