Hello everyone. I am looking for somewhere to base my wife and I got a few days from the UK for our honeymoon. Wanting to do the usual touristy things in NY would this be a good place to start? Any other recommendations would be helpful too... Hopefully heading around may time. Thanks in advance
This is 2 hours north of the city. It is restful and beautiful and there is stuff to do but if you're looking for city tourism this might not be best.
Hi Dan, I agree with all of the above. The inn is lovely and reasonable, but getting into the city would not be easy and it would take a good four hours, round trip, out of your day. I'd suggest a stay in Manhattan. The Stanford Hotel is in the heart of the city, and if you book now, you should get a reasonable rate (for NY). It's two blocks from Penn RR Station, walkable to Broadway, and if you're good walkers, to the museums and World Trade Center. Lovely boutique hotel. And if you're interested in plays, be sure to check out the two-for-one ticket booth at Broadway and 47th (48th?). All the plays are listed, and the young volunteers are very helpful with info about what's offered. Good Luck, Dan, and Congratulations! Let us know how you make out. Camilia
Hey Dan, fellow Brit here. This is a beautiful place but it's upstate so a little far for Nyc sightseeing.. A couple of hours away by car. This place is stunning though with beautiful mountains close by.
I'm a New Yorker through and through -- for many decades. If your goal would be to find a base in the mountain regions, I strongly recommend you book a room at one of the very nice hotels in Saratoga Springs, NY. SS is midway between the Catskills and Adirondacks mountains. It's a gorgeous town with excellent restaurants and shopping. An hour ride north is one of America's most beautiful lakes, Lake George, and close by it are scores of other lakes, ponds and rivers for sporting activities. If you go in the summer, SS has the best horse racing track in the US and right adjacent to it is a summer musical at the spectacular Saratoga Performing Arts Center. If you like to hike, the Adirondacks are unbeatable for challenges, beauty and environmental rejuvenation.
