Manhattan, the central borough of New York City, is home to some of the world’s most famous sites, stories and people—it’s kind of a big deal. To see what all the fuss is about, you’ve gotta explore the old haunts of literary greats, eat food truck bagels, and feel the rhythm of the streets beneath your feet. That “rhythm” is a subway train, by the way, zooming underground.
Finding Manhattan hotels is easy, and you could happily spend your entire holiday there. But for a true NYC experience you’ve got to explore all five boroughs, so check out the rest of our New York City accommodation range as well.
Things to Do in Manhattan
Locals call Manhattan “The City” because when you’ve got attractions like Central Park, Times Square, Wall Street, and more, you don’t need to be modest. Speaking of Central Park, take a turn here to visit The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the American Museum of Natural History. Just south of Central Park in Midtown, walk to the top of Rockefeller Center, stand in the middle of Times Square, catch a Broadway show, then scoot over to Hell’s Kitchen to sample the latest and greatest cuisine. Later, visit the moving 9/11 Memorial in Lower Manhattan, rub shoulders with future bestsellers and Tony Award-winners at an Upper West Side coffee shop, then settle in and relax at a luxurious Manhattan hotel. NYC may never sleep, but you’ve got to!
Getting To & Around Manhattan
NYC is serviced by two major airports, John F. Kennedy (JFK) and LaGuardia (LGA), both of which are located in the outer borough of Queens. Once you touch down, you can navigate the entire city using public transport, as the subway system, bus lines and commuter rails are top-notch.
