Three Ways to Enjoy Your Trip Like A New Yorker

January 08, 2018

No two trips to New York City are alike. Challenge yourself with this list of innovative ways to experience the steadfast energy of our sprawling cosmopolitan.

Try New Restaurants: Whether you are traveling for work or pleasure, Brendan’s Bar & Grill is conveniently located next to our lobby. The American and Irish cuisine draws a globetrotting crowd and the location is perfect to launch your trip.

Hear Live Music: Treat yourself to a quintessential evening of live jazz or music in Midtown Manhattan. Head to Birdland (315 W 44th St), for a New Orleans-style jazz venue flooded with red lights and the intoxicating sounds of live trumpets, saxophones, and more. For a diverse range of musical acts,The Cutting Room (44 E 32nd St), features a full calendar of concerts and offers table service as well as a full-stocked bar.

Experience Contemporary Art: Not all art is meant to be experienced indoors. Take a stroll down to Madison Square Park to witness the luminous splendor of Erwin Redl’s outdoor installation, Whiteout. Imagine 900 transparent white sphere suspended two feet above the ground. On view until March 25, 2018.

Take to the streets and enjoy everything this city has to offer--then return to our luxurious beds and slip into a plush Gregory robe for a cozy night in.
