So, where to start with New York?
After a bumpy flight over - started by hour and a half delay just before boarding when the pilot announces that the plane is malfunctioning due to being struck by lightning 3 days before - landed safely. Commenced a journey into the city that took almost as long as the flight itself and should have started with …
... when it is not easy to move around the city. There were kids parties and family BBQ and friends catching up over take away food. It was insane and incredibly fantastic,
And after we had finally traversed as much of the park as possible we struggled to the subway and were barely able to climb back out of the subway when we returned to our apartment as our legs were practically useless. It seemed that we had walked thousands of ...
Today we started off badly thanks to the Wallabies. We headed to a local bar to watch the Bledisloe - surrounded by Kiwis may I add. A poor performance all around but the bar served a great breakfast of bagels with smoked salmon and cream cheese - our first New York bagel. After the disappointment of the game we all headed to Central Park. The two Stuarts and I hired bikes and ...
... a block and can find things without actually knowing where it is (although this confidence can aslo be one's downfall!). The stronger presence of capitalism can also be felt, with a huge gap in disparity which is often distinguishable by nationality.
I'll wrap everything up with a couple of highlights:
- Seeing all the NYC street vendors selling 'Onnee Dolla IEeeeeece Cold Waddar' on hot days
- Using my shirt ...

I had to remind Sue that the deck we were standing on was the same location where Sam & Annie met.
We are feeling quite proud of ourselves as we descend, the queues of people trying to get in had swelled and it looked like about an hour wait by now.
The construction of the building started on St Patrick's Day 1930 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Iroquois New York City
Quiet and Close to everything
We just returned from 5 days in New York City during the Thanksgiving holiday. My husband and an 18 year old daughter, and 21 year old son.
We all loved the cozy, quiet hotel. It is close to everything we needed and not a large loud chain hotel. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We had two adjoining rooms and they were all we hoped for. We will stay there on our next visit!
Great Place in the City
Stayed here Thanksgiving 2002 and loved it. Needed to switch rooms due to some plumbing and were taken care of immediately. Awesome location to theaters and times square. Can be pricey, but if you find a deal, take it!
"Elegance, Elegance, Elegance!!!"
We stayed in the lovely room 500, which almost connects to one of the elevators. So easy was the access, in and out, that we did just that, came and went frequently. We used to stay at the Westbury, famous for its high-powered perfoming clients, but have switched to Iroquois because of its incredibly convenient proximity to the theater district and all the wonderful vibrance and life of the Times Square areas. We have found a new home in The City, where the staff seems like that in our own home.
Ok, but would not stay here again
Hotel is ok. Just not really my style. I am sure I got the smallest room in the house, must be a specialty of quikbook. Staff was very nice though.I happened to walk into the Mansfield Hotel across the street on this visit and found my next hotel! It had an aura that Iroquois was missing.Fitness room was adequate.
Wonderful Place to Stay
We found this hotel to be quiet, clean, convenient and friendly. The room we had was not large but lovely. Only complaint would be that the air conditioning did not work well in our room. The staff is very accomodating and the restaurant was wonderful.
My husband and I stayed at the Iroquois back in Thanksgiving 2001. We took advantage of cheaper rooms to support the tourist industry after the dreadful sept. 11th. We wouldn't normally have been able to afford this hotel and as budget travellers Im sure we looked a little out of place showing up with Back-packs instead of Prada suitcases !!!!!
Lovely BUT noisy
I had a 'boutique' room at the back on the third floor, then fifth and eventually eight and even after the third move of room the noise from adjoining air-con units was awful. I can't understand hoteliers that spend a fortune on the decor but don't double or triple glaze rooms!
The only place I stay
This small hotel is among the most charming, attentive, accommodating, and comfortable places I've visited. Although the rooms are a bit small, they are cleverly arranged so that I never felt cramped. The beds are clean, comfortable, and full of fluffy pillows. The staff is friendly, and knew me by name after my first night. The restaurant is top-notch, too. A very nice stay!
Classic Elegance and Old-World Charm!
This hotel was recommended to us by friends, and they were right! The Old-World Elegance of this classy hotel was just what we wanted for our romantic getaway! The beds were comfortable, and the rooms were amazingly upscale for the price we paid. We got to visit Broadway and Fifth Avenue, and when we returned to our suite's living room, we felt like we were in a fine Paris hotel...we will very likely return again for an encore of our own "Autumn in New York."
Warm and Inviting
This is a small hotel which has been completely refurbished with the utmost of taste and comfort in mind. The rooms are small, yet comfortable. There is a wonderful lounge area for espresso and a continental breakfast. It has a wonderful atmosphere and the staff is helpful and professional. If you are looking for a cozy, romantic place that is not overly expensive, this is it.
