... spots, Grand Central Station- mum wasn't that impressed and Times Square. I love it but it wasn't much fun in the rain. We did hit a few shops though. Mum loved the Ferris Wheel in ToysRUs and dad liked all the chocolate in the M&M factory. We then wandered down to Madison Square Gardens where we had to have security checks to wander through. I wanted a basketball jersey but they were over $100!!! I didn't want one that much. Dad also offered to ...

We got hungry so Matt got a gyros from the Street Meat vans. Gyros are a greek dish which is a meat sandwich basically. He will miss these as he has been getting one a day. I had a hotdog and we went to starbucks to get a drink for myself. They had free wifi so we thought we would stay there a little longer and eat our food there.
So, it's my last day in NYC and I'm exhausted, my back is hurting, and...there's more ground to cover. One of the things on my list (can't believe we never did it) was to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. Once again, Brady thought it wouldn't be too busy on a weekday, so we rented bikes.
OMG, while I'm really glad I can say "I rode a bike across the Brooklyn Bridge", it would be hard to ...
... Mexican, I liked it (not as much as la Esquinna) the kids did not enjoy any of it apart from the corn chips and dip!!!
As we head home Macy's is still open...so in we go, hahahaha just shutting, no more shopping, we ended up in time square all carrying a few bags each, real tourists...anyway, lights and lights and more lights, no worrying about the energy use in time square. people of all types, pretty trashy really however fun to do...tick done.

Historical Traveler Reviews La Quinta Inn Manhattan New York City
Oh my God!!! Hot in here!!
August 31, 2003 - September 2, 2003 Okay - here is the "real deal" about this hotel. The location is wonderful! Right around the corner from Macy's, subway stations are at the corner - around every corner - you can find something to eat - great location! Check-in w/ Diyva was cool - asked her to give us a nice room (it was 3 women)- she said no - and we thought she was kidding!! But she wasn't - she put us in room 715 - where the room was the size of my car (a mustang)! The air was broken and the toliet didn't flush! The room was horrible - it was on the street - so all night we heard horns blowing - and on top of that it was hot as *$@(! So we complained about the air not working and they said the entire hotel's air wasn't working and they were working on it (mind you - it's 2am) - they sent some George the bellman up to make us think he was fixing the air - what the #%*$! The hotel does offer complimentary continental breakfast (bagels and donuts, oh yea cereal too!) - after we ate rubbery bagels we went to the front desk and spoke with the manager - thank heavens the housekeeping manager was standing there too - they moved us to room 1208 - which had a window a/c unit - and was twice the size of the room 715 - the room was wonderful! The staff is wonderful (housekeepers are really nice)! Also, there is a roof top bar on 14 - the hours are crazy though - not ran by the hotel - so it's open when someone comes in to run the bar... Overall, the hotel was an experience in itself... Will I stay here again?? Maybe! Maybe not!
Great all around!
Great Hotel. I almost don't want to tell anyone because I want there always to be room for me! We (2 of us) got a great price on the internet, a wonderful view of the Empire state building, and the room was huge! Sometimes you just get lucky I guess. I stayed here last year, (2002) when it was a Best western, and had some problems with the air-conditioner, but they gave me another room that had a working conditioner after a few (HOT) hours. This year was great though. The free breakfast every morning has lots and lots of choices. If they can keep the good price I'll definitely be back. THe location was tops also. Room was clean.
We were there Sat, 6/21/03. This was by far the worst hotel I've ever been to. I called the reservation number and they promised me a non smoking room and requested a room with a view of the Empire State Bldg. We got a 3rd floor smoking room with a view of the alley. I called the front desk, there are absolutely no rooms with a view of the ESB a the La Q, and there was no non smoking rooms left that night. If the mysterious stains weren't enough, minutes after we stepped of the elevator to the "rooftop bar" (not a view there either), the elevator fell-not crashed to the bottom, but it definately fell. We checked out at 7 AM the next morning and went thru ... for our next hotel. It was only $10 more a night, and well worth it! While leaving La Q, I noticed the elevator was covered with yellow cation tape, even the next morning! I do not recommend La Qunita to anybody, even my worst enemy.
Great Room Great Price
Stayed here with my sister (who was visiting NYC for the first time) in April and she picked this room for $79 a night. I've stay in many a NYC hotel room, so naturally, I was terrified before I got there but, once there, was shockingly surprised. The hotel has absolutely no character or charm... but the room was clean & spacious (NYC standards), the service friendly, the location great -- all at a really affordable price for NYC. I was floored. The bathroom was marble! (BTW the bathrooms are nothing to write home about but at this price they are.)
Recommend La Quinta Manhattan (ex Best Western)
We didn't know NY before our recent trip and were delighted with the
location of our hotel. It is marvellously central for walking to Times
Square, Chelsea, along Fifth Avenue and there is the
34thStreet/HeraldSquare subway station at the corner with lines going
just about everywhere you could want to visit. For a good quality,
standard but superbly situated hotel, I can't recommend this one
I feel at home.
Every year, I travel to NY. And would stay no wherebut here. Great price and excellent service
Located just West of 5th Ave on 32ed it is close to stores and 2 blocks from Penn Station. However, the rooms are SMALL and noise form 32ed St comes right through the windows - especially the Trash pick-up at 3:00am. NYC breakfast included with room was limited.
Best Deal in NYC!
This highly affordable hotel is turning us into frequent NYC visitors. We get the AARP/AAA rate, often under $90 per night during the week. It's a short walk from Penn Station, close to subways and busses. The rooms range from small to not so small, are clean, comfortable and come with a "continental" breakfast. (Ask for a room near the rear to avoid trash collection noise.) The value conscious hotel guests come from all over the world. Just don't tell anyone else about this place!
A Fantastic deal
This hotel is very cheap for its location, i.e.
it is directly underneath the Empire State Building,
around the corner from Macies and 5th Avenue.
The room we stayed in was clean and tidy with on suite bathroom and a TV - no view but that doesn't matter becuase you don't stay inside when you're in New York ! Staff are friendly and you can come and go as you please.
Basic hotel, good location
I've just come back from NYC where I stayed at the hotel best western manhattan. It is a no frills hotel: very basic rooms, ours was really quiet, very basic free breakfast but a great location. Only a block away from the Empire State building, 5th Ave and Macy's. As long as you don't expect anything too fancy, best western manhattan should make you satisfied.
