Where to Stay

New York’s neighbourhoods are as diverse as the city itself, each offering unique perspectives and experiences. Whether you're travelling with family, friends or a loved one, there's a part of New York that is perfect for you.

For a family holiday

Nothing exudes charm quite like the Upper West Side, which is known for its family-friendly attractions like the Natural History Museum and Central Park. Alternatively, Tribeca offers a quieter family experience with its low-rise architecture and Hudson River Park.

For a couples holiday

The romantic streets of Greenwich Village with its buzzing nightlife, live music spots, and world-class dining make it a lovely retreat for couples. For the upper-end romantic experience, nothing beats Upper East Side’s luxury hotels and proximity to Central Park.

For a holiday with friends

The trendy spots of Williamsburg and East Village with their vibrant nightlife, unique shopping options, impressive food scene appeal to groups of friends. If the crowd is more artsy, then Chelsea’s art galleries and proximity to High Line Park can be a good choice.

When to Visit

The best time to visit New York depends on the traveller's preferences. Though the city shines bright all year round, the spring and autumn offer brilliantly mild and crisp weather, perfect for exploring parks in full bloom or crunching leaves underfoot.

Winter can be extraordinarily magical, especially during festivities when the city transforms into a winter wonderland. Do be ready to pack winter gear though, as the weather can be biting cold. The summer, on the other hand, can be humid, but it's the ideal time for those inclined toward a more coastal, relaxed holiday in Coney Island or Rockaway Beach.
