Travel Blogs from New York City
Hva kan man si, New York er det bare én av, og for en herlig, energisk, dynamisk by! En egen institusjon. Stemning, menneskene, kreasjoner, butikker, raringer, fininger, skyskrapere, her finnes alt!
Tage har vært her flere ganger før, men av en eller annen grunn er det første gang for Hege. Og hun elsker byen fra første stund. Hun har bestandig …
Nach dem wir gestern mit Sonne nur so verwöhnt wurden, schüttet Petrus heute alles raus was oben geblieben war. Es regnet mächtig gewaltig, sodass wir uns gezwungen sehen noch einen zweiten Schirm zu kaufen.
Mit diesem in der Hand ging es zu unserer ersten Destination die einigen noch aus "The Day after tomorrow" bekannt sein dürfte - die …
... about the food but there are landmarks and historical tidbits thrown in. Yay for food! I headed out and took my first ride on the Subway, from 94th Street station to Houston St (for those of us who need to know that's how-ston, never mind that there's no e in there) and walked to a bar called the GMT Tavern which is in Greenwich Village (someone has a sense of humour). I'm also noting that you will need to take your ...
... and then we went down again.
After that we got to Times Square and went to the largest toys r us shop in the world it even has a 60 foot ferris wheel inside the shop.
To end the day we went to bubba gumps which is a restaurant. Wh had our food I thought I would relax and I fell asleep with my head on mums bag. Then we went home and I fell asleep straight away because it was about 10 and we had a huge day. I will update you tomorow ...
... again I think I would choose to stay in the west village. Redeemer Presbyterian 5pm downtown – liturgical service, sermon on psalm 51, awesome band Shopping and Mexican dinner. Comedy at the Knitting Factory Williamsburg. An excellent tip off from Kellie. $7 for 5 comedians. Great atmosphere, soooooo funny! Monday 8th July Red Rooster in Harlem for lunch – modern southern food. Nice restaurant but food unfortunately left a little to be desired. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel 373 New York City
Wonderful LITTLE Hotel
This is a wonderful hotel. While the rooms are small they make up for them in price. The hotel staff was very helpful and the were always there to help. A great place to eat breakfast is right next door at the little cafe. For two people you can get out under $10.
Subway station is close at the corner of 35th and 6th Ave and you can get to about any where from the trains that stop there. Dont be scared of the subways they are the best way to see ALL of New York.
This was an excellent little hotel in Midtown that I will definitely be returning to. I almost don't want to rave about it too much because it's such a great find and I don't want it to change!
Maybe the day staff had a very off day, but "friendly" and "cheerful" are NOT words to describe the people I encountered during the day. I travel a lot, and when you arrive early and there are no rooms available, they will at least smile and say 'check back later'. I got a somewhat rude, "check-in is at 3pm" response to my 12noon arrival. When I asked if I could check back earlier (no guarantees of course) - again a stern "3PM!" I was told. I came back at 2pm to check back - got a "your room is still not ready". I had no problem with the response, and sat down in the two person capacity lobby. A bit latter they did come back and told me they could give me another room that was ready - it was like they were doing me a favor. Again, I understand waiting until 'check-in time' - but being friendly and nice about it would go a LONG way. Night staff was very friendly and nice - proving you don't have to be the stereotype grumpy New Yorker. Room was clean, good size for New York and a bit noisy - but its NY.
This hotel was amazing!!! 3 of my best girl friends and I somehow all managed to stay in a King-size bed for the entire first weekend in March and surprisingly, managed quite well. The rooms are small, but they have an AMAZING view of the Empire State Building, they are 100% clean, they have amazing bedding, the bathrooms are spotless, the decor is ultra modern.... we absolutely loved the time we spent in this room. Granted, we weren't actually IN the room much.... but at the same time, who spends that much time in their hotel room when in NY? You'll absolutely LOVE this hotel. PLUS- I don't think I have ever met a more friendly staff than the staff at Hotel 373... we encountered many members of their staff- the late night crew, the morning crew, the afternoon crew... and EVERYONE looked happy to be there. It was great! VERY refreshing!!! I am recommending this hotel to EVERYONE I KNOW!!! ENJOY!! :)
Two big factors for this hotel are friendly staff and location, location, location! Right on 5th Avenue (at 35 Street), with a Starbucks attached to the lobby; the Empire State Building is a block away, while Macy's, the Manhattan Mall PATH station, and Broadway, etc., are a handful of blocks away.
Great place to stay!
This hotel was amazing for the price. Location was great. We booked the smallest room b/c we knew we would not be in there at all and could have cared less about how small it was-and it was small. Hotel staff was VERY friendly and helpful. Room and hotel was VERY clean. What a great place we will go back again!
I didn't realize the hotel only opened beginning of the month, amazing!!
This hotel opened on February 1st and is doing pretty well considering how new it is. Lobby is tiny - just two seats and a standup check in kiosk. No cabbies have heard of it and the sign is small so look for the Starbucks on the corner of 35th and 5th. Across from the Empire State building and very Central. I actually walked to all of my meetings from here.
Great location, good value
The room was small, but very comfortable, no closet to hang suits etc. I stayed one night on business, good amenities, no minibar. They did bring an iron when asked. Good location to get around from, great price for quick one night business trip if you don't need services. The starbucks is a busy location with long lines so leave time to grab breakfast and still make your meetings on time. Free internet service great to check email etc from your room. Bathroom was great, nice aveda supplies. Bed comfortable. New and very clean. Would stay again. Strictly enforce the 3:00 pm check-in which was a bit of a hassle, but they kept my luggage til I got back from meetings.
My husband and I spent one night at 373 on a recent jaunt to NYC, and we overjoyed by the experience. The room was very reasonably priced, and the hotel is brand new (I think it opened fall 2006). The room was nicely furnished -- modern decor, flat screen tv, radio with ipod docking station,and we loved that they had Aveda toiletries in the bathroom -- and very clean. We booked a "petite queen" room, and it was pretty small (about 10 by 12), but the price was right. I have stayed at places twice the price with little more room -- you really can't expect to get a huge room in NYC, and this size was fine for what we were using it for (sleeping and showering). The bed was really comfy -- pillowtop mattress and down comforter. All the stuff you expect in a boutique hotel, at half the price.
