So we've moved north from the heavenly Maiori to the famous and crowded Rome, and now we’re getting ready to move on to something yet again completely different. Tomorrow morning we’ll be off to a very small town called Amelia, which is not only gorgeous in its own right, but is also the midpoint between Narni, from …
it seems like ages ago that we arrived in New York City and took a stroll into times square. while there we went to the discount ticket booth and got tickets at 50% off and saw stomp. After stomp we managed to get on the subway and find our way back to our hotel.
DAY 2 and we used our hop on-off bus tickets to go up to Harlem, stopped at …
... pretentiousness, as we now paused on our northward route at the 9/11 hole/construction site. We had originally thought to skip it, because we werent keen on 'gawking', but a moment of respect felt enough. Yes, there is building going on again, and the place is a bit of a mess because of it, but we really didn't stay for long. We were dealing with enough questions from the kids without actually visiting the memorial. The sight of the fire station on the corner ...
... Lego section. We stopped at an Italian restaurant for a late night dinner and now they are sleeping and I can hardly stay awake. This is the city that doesn't sleep. Something we rather enjoy. Paul and I that is.
Tomorrow we say goodbye to NY and take the train back to CT and head for Philly via New Jersey. On the road again. Happy trails.
I will upload photos in the morning. ...
... who were all elbows so I got zero!! I watched a couple of films which seemed to pass the time and soon it was breakfast. While we were eating, the main flight attendant we had been chatting to came over with a bottle of champagne - my first thought was 'oh god it's far too early for that!' but it was actually a present from the crew to celebrate our engagement!! I've never experienced anything like it before on a plane, amazing - ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Metro New York City
We stayed here in May 2003 and found the hotel to be excellent. Room was compact but very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was greatly appreciated and of a good standard. Location was quite good for getting about Manhattan as it is a short walk to 5th or 6th. Also a 5 minute walk from Macey's and only a few blocks from Grand Central Station. If we go back to New York this will probably be the first hotel we try to book.
i have just got back from staying at the metro!we had a wonderful time!
the best thing about the hotel was being so near to macys!wenever we had too mnay bags we wud just drop our stuff back to the hotel!the free coffe and tea 24 hours was also a great deal! the terrace is still open in the winter and we were able to have a great view of the empire state building! stay at teh metro u wont be disapointed!
Felt like Southern Hospitality!
Couldn't have found a better bargain in NYC, or nicer people than the staff at this lovely little hotel. It's not just that the rooms were spotlessly clean - there is a feeling of hospitality here that transends expectations. We read about it in Frommer's as the best moderately priced hotel so knew it would be a value, and it is, but no way is this a budget hotel. It isn't the fanciest place in town, but it IS my new favorite. As for the reviews about small rooms - well, you know NYC is know for having smallish hotel rooms and there is so much more here that just MADE our trip. The breakfast room server always has a smile and the bellman had more helpful hints for theatre tickets than a concierge! Loved, loved, loved the Metro.
I stayed at the Metro July 2- July 4 this year, and I found this hotel to be far more than I expected for the price. It's in a wonderful location and the staff is nothing short of willing to help at every turn. The hotel lobby is smartly decorated in an art deco theme that carries through to the guest rooms. The rooms are small, but very clean, modern and with every amenity you'd need for a 2 or 3 day stay.
Was disappointed by the size of the room, and more particularly by the size of the bed - smallest double bed I have ever seen. it was a tight squeeze for the two of us.
We have just had 5 nights at the Metro Hotel in Manhattan. The locations is fantastic, less than 5 minutes from Empire State Building, Macy's and just a little further to Times Square and fantastic eateries.The Metro was really good value for money, the included breakfasts saved time and money and was a good start to each morning.The room was of a decent size (tho' the TV was poor - but hey, who needs TV in NY!?). The reception staff were helpful although not intrusive, ie. there to help if needed. The 24 hour tea/coffee was a welcome after full days walking around (we hardly used the sub-ways).We loved NY and are planning on coming back. We would consider the Metro again because of the value, but having now seen the Big A, it would be really nice to stay in somewhere with a view (preferably over Central Park) although we realise this means premium rates. Next Anniversary p'haps!Well done Cresta City Breaks - everything worked v. well.8/10 for the Metro.
A Great Recommendation from TripAdvisor
After reading the positive reviews given about this hotel we thought we'd give it a try for our first visit to New York, and we weren't disappointed.
Everything from the location (10 mins walk from Times Square, 1 min to the nearest metro station and just around the corner from the Empire State building), the free breakfast (bagles galore with cream cheese, pastries, tea, coffee & juice) and the wonderful roof top terrace (literally 'touching' the Empire State!) were perfect.
The rooms were clean and spacious and all the staff were friendly & helpful.
We would definitely recommend the Hotel Metro and would have no hesitation in staying there again.
Love this hotel
The best way that I can say thanks for a great stay is to write a positive review. This hotel is a gem in a great location. The accommodation is clean and comfortable, and I found all members of staff that I encountered to be friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are a great bonus. I would return here without hesitation.
I have been to New York 3 times & the last two times i have stayed at the hotel metro, i find it a very friendly & welcoming place, the rooms are clean & comfortable, with all the amenaties you need. Both times i stayed there it was july & very warm! so it is nice to have good air conditioning, also the metro has a rooftop terrace, which sells cocktails in the evenings, it also gives you a fantastic view of the empire state building, which is only one block away! The Metro has a library & coffee lounge that serves complimentary tea & coffee 24 hours a day, which is great after a hard days shopping & sightseeing, which, by the way is plentiful, you also have the added bonus of complimentary continental breakfast, comprising of tea,coffee,orange juice, bagel's, muffins,jams & cheeses all served in the coffee lounge every morning. Both years i have been very sorry to leave the metro, but....i am going back again this July, & yes i am staying at the metro again! i wouldn't want to stay anywhere else
The Metro Hotel is a jewel!
We had four rooms at the Metro in December of 2002. All the rooms were large, very clean and well maintained with marble bathrooms. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. The location is excellent - walking distance to many attractions and just around the corner is the subway. The free breakfast and all day coffee and tea are a nice touch. The staff couldn't have been friendlier. The workout room was airy and new and had a great tv. All in all, I don't think there is a better deal for the money (reasonable).
