Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

 It’s a known fact that travel to New York City drops off after the holiday season, and yes, it’s a bit cold up here in the Big Apple, but there are many reasons why it’s also the best time of year to take your trip.  First, it’s a money saver.  Both flights and accommodations in the city are less expensive this time of year.  Just check out the deal we are offering here or be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for other exclusives. Once you get here and settle in (and yes, pack some warm clothes and wear layers), there is a ton to do.  Here’s just a few…

Broadway Shows:  Due to less tourism in the city, it is much easier to get good seats to your favorite Broadway Show.  With so many great shows out there, you may want to catch one or two and then follow them up with a great meal you will only find in Times Square. Contact our concierge to arrange a full itinerary or get great deals and rates on your favorite shows by emailing rooseveltcgs@continentalguestservices.com

Shop.  Shop. Shop.: One thing that is fun in any weather is shopping!  The Roosevelt Hotel is located just a few blocks away from NYC’s famous Fifth Avenue with great places like Tiffany & Co., Bergdorf Goodman, FAO Schwartz and so much more.  If you’re not into the high end stores, here is a great list of places all around the city to shop!

Go Ice Skating:  This is kind of a ‘must do’ in NYC and there are lots of places to go for ice skating fun.  Just a few blocks away is the Ice Rink at Rockefeller Center, then of course the famous Wollman Rink in Central Park and the Pond at Bryant Park.  Perfect activity for family, romance or just some friends on vacation!

Eat at NY Restaurant Week: From January 16 – February 10, is NYC&Co Restaurant week which offers affordable prix-fixe deals at some of NYC’s high-end eateries.  Three-course prix-fixe lunch $24.07, prix-fixe dinner $35.  For more details vist http://www.nycgo.com/restaurantweek.

Take in Some Art: Take refuge from the cold and spend the day in any of New Yorks extraordinary museums.  One of our favorites is the American Museum of Natural History (which you could easily spend a day in on its own, but of course you should stop in the Museum of Modern Art and all the others on Museum Mile.

With so much to do in NYC, take a trip in for a few days and enjoy the less crowded streets by day and a comfy bed in the upgraded rooms at The Roosevelt Hotel!
