Für den zweiten Tag haben wir uns insbesondere Downtown Manhattan vorgenommen. Zuerst nahmen wir Kurs auf Ground Zero. Mit der Subway ist man schnell an den meisten interessanten Orten der Stadt. Der 9/11 Memorial Park wurde am 11. September dieses Jahres anlässlich des 10-jährigen Gedenken an den Angriff auf die World Trade Center Towers …
Wir sind an der letzten Etappe unserer Reise angelangt --> New York City! Unser Hotel ist ca. 100 Meter vom Time Square entfernt, also absolut optimal gelegen. Wir haben uns für eine Städtetour mit den Doppeldeckerbussen entschieden. Es ist unserer Meinung nach die beste Art eine Stadt zu erkunden. Im Fall von New York gibt es verschiedene Linien …
Nos despertamos temprano , hoy lunes 13 de Abril 2009, ya que nos pasaban a buscar a las 3.20 AM para ir al aeopuerto de Tampa, y tomar el vuelo de United # 557/846 rumbo a NY haciendo escala previa en Washington DC.
Set off for Ground Zero at around 10.30 am to see 9/11 Memorial. Entry was free
but you had to line up to receive one of the free tickets without these tickets
you could not enter all they asked was a small donation. It took us about an
hour to enter the memorial site. Quite a moving experience
recalling all those innocent people who lost their lives on 9/11. The Americans
are so patriotic ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Room Mate Grace New York City
I stayed at the QT for a week at the end of March, over Easter.
The Hotel QT accomplishes exactly what it set out to do - and that is to provide a clean, comfortable and tasteful place to sleep. After doing research on the hotel and learning it was based on the idea of an "upscale youth hostel," I was prepared for a decent yet average environment. I am happy to say I was very pleasantly surprised.
Like being at a spa
Just returned--April 8th to 11th and found this hotel to be really fun and unique. The entire place has an ambiance that is like a spa--redwood and slate--very natural. Lit candles surrounding the windows around the pool area. Pool is a beautiful blue with neat waterfall sound which is very interesting. At night you can order drinks through the open window to the bar area.After all the sounds of the city I would grab a float and lay in the warm pool and listen to music. Great breakfast. Beds are wonderful comforters and soft pillows. Great location--across the street from new Bond 45 restaurant. Great price---going back in a month.
Loved it loved it loved it!!!!!!!
Stayed here from 24 - 26 March. Thought it was brilliant, the staff were excellent really friendly and approachable especially at reception!!! Loved the modern rooms although the shower did prove a challenge!!! We got a great price and the free breakfast was lovely, overall, the best of the 3 hotels we stayed in over the last 3 weeks. Very hip without being over the top.
Rooms, sheets and towels clean and loved the massive bed, decoration and flat screen TV. Definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends and family.
I stayed at the Hotel QT over Easter and I just wanted to let people know how much of a great time we had. It was almost impossible to find a hotel in the city over Easter but I came accross Hotel QT and took the chance. I'm very happy that we went with hotel QT because the staff is excellent and it is such a great location (just off of time square). The price is very reasonable for New York and what other hotel will include a light breakfast!. The rooms aren't the biggest but let's face it you get what you pay for and New York is all prime land. Overall this is a great hotel and has much potential (considering it just opened in Jan 05). I would definetely stay here again when I go back to NYC. Just to mention there are a few excellent places to eat right beside the hotel (Conollys Pub and the bakery next door).
Just checked out of the QT and as everyone notes its a great value for midtown. The pool is now open.
Loved the QT
After reading only 2 reviews at the time we decided to go for it and book this hotel without having seen one photo but it was a great decision. The hotel is brandnew, so not everything is up and running yet, the swimming pool for instance but everything else is great. We were greeted by a lovely staff at reception who upgraded us to a bigger room straight away. The room was huge and with a lovely design, yes minimalist but we liked it very much. The beds are great with lovely bedlinnen and a flatscreen tv at the foot of the bed. The shower is huge and so are the towels. As said the team there are very nice and helpful and our experience made us decide to book another 2 nights when we come back from our trip to Boston.
Hotel QT not for everyone
I stayed at the QT this past weekend with my husband and young son. The staff was friendly and helpful and the room was clean, with a nice bed, TV and bathroom (and towels). It seems hip and cool, if you like minimalist decor. HOWEVER, the rooms are very sparse - no chairs, no storage for clothing (except an open closet), no table or desk...so not comfortable for a visit of more than one night.
The location is great if you want to be near Times Square but I don't think the "bargain" rate of $185 per night was much of a bargain.
Loved the qt
clean rooms, great sheets, nice shower, great lobby and very nice staff....the rooms have a special design, a large bed, a flatscreen tv, large bathroom, thats it! storage space is a little bit small, better nonexistent.....the design has nothing in common with the typical american hotelroom decor! ok, they are still in their opening and there is still a lot to do: sauna and gym are not yet finished and the pool is closed, but for an opening rate 99 $...wonderful!
