Reasons for trip


We stayed at the Hilton at 1235 Avenue of the Americas. it is within easy walking distance of Madison Avenue, 5th Avenue and Broadway. We like to stay on the executive floor, because there is usually a lounge where you can have free breakfast and buy evening drinks, plus snacks in a quiet and pleasant atmoshphere. Whilst the room was to the usual high standard, the execurive lounge was overpopulated and definately distinctly uncomfortable for breakfast and in the evening. The worst I have ever used. As a base for shopping, broadway and the sites, its good. The guest services (run by Janet) were an excellent source of tickets for attractions and shows, although be warned that last minute ticket purchases for popular shows can be expensive. We paid $250 each for Lion King and $450 each for Book of Mormon. When visiting Empire State Building or Statue of Librerty, its worth buying express tickets. These take you past all of the queues and are worth the money! We took a helicopter tour for $250 each. Good views of the city, but very cramped, so not so good for photography. Good lunches are available at Saks (8th Floor) and Rue 57, a couple of blocks from the hotel. The hotel is a $45 taxi ride from JFK Airport (standard fee each way) or $85 in a streched limo.
