Virgin Holidays - New York Holidays...

LONDON, Dec. 20, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- New York hotels are an experience in diversity, with plenty on offer. From the uptown glitz of the Upper West Side to the downtown bohemian chic of the West Village, from Chinatown to Little Italy, from Murray Hill to Midtown, you are presented with entirely different sights, sounds and even smells in each neighbourhood.

When it comes to things to do, you can expect to find out what 'spoilt for choice' really means, you might not be able to fit everything in on your New York Holiday! From the architecture, the history, the museums and galleries, to the clubs, theatres, restaurants and bars...  weekend breaks in New York tend to be busy! Make a vague plan of what you want to see, but beware -- the fizzing energy of Manhattan is bewitching, and it could carry you completely off course. Just make sure you see the best sights, like the Empire State Building with its amazing views, and leave plenty of time for the fabulous shopping during your New York Holiday! A New York holiday without a trip to Macy's just wouldn't be right.

The Helmsley Park Lane Hotel New York has a great location on Central Park South. Many rooms at The Helmsley Park Lane Hotel New York overlook that lovely green expanse. There's continental dining with more amazing park views in the restaurant, and martinis in the wonderfully clubby Harry's Bar are a great way to start the evening. The great location of this hotel means it's the perfect place to explore the best of New York. The Helmsley Park Lane Hotel New York is only 5 blocks north of the Museum of Modern Art and 5 blocks west of the famous Bloomingdale's to do all your shopping.

It's a bit quieter at the Hotel Beacon New York in this desirable Upper West Side location than in Midtown Manhattan. The famous Lincoln Center is only a short walk away, together with Central Park, American Museum of Natural History and Rose Center for Earth and Space, and a clutch of off-Broadway theatres. The rooms at the Hotel Beacon New York tend to be bigger than in the centre of Manhattan so you get more for your money. Rooms at the Hotel Beacon New York also come complete with everything you need to fix yourself some breakfast, as our American friends would say.
