About New York City

It's called The Big Apple, Empire City, and The Capital of the World. Whatever you call it, New York City remains a must-visit destination. At Triphop, we're here not just to find you the perfect hotel at an unbelievable price. We also help you figure out what to do when you leave your luxurious room!

When you think of The City That Never Sleeps, your mind will likely picture the glitz and glamour of the Manhattan area. This borough certainly has a lot to offer. Times Square is an area of total sensory stimulation and provides a wealth of shopping and dining experiences. Just steps away, you can disappear into the sprawling urban green space that is Central Park. Check out the stately architecture of Wall Street, the famous Rockefeller Plaza, and the soaring Empire State Building. 

At night, catch a world-famous Broadway show or a concert at the one and only Madison Square Garden. Don't forget to visit East Side Manhattan for a spectacular view of Brooklyn! The Upper East Side will give you a peek into the lives of the rich and famous. Meanwhile, enjoy incomparable art, live music, and dining in the Lower East Side. As for hotels, some of the country's most luxurious (and often star-studded) can are here. These include The Plaza, The Carlyle, The Four Seasons, and the St. Regis.

However, the rest of New York City has even more to offer. Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, and Staten Island are all brimming with possibilities! From the Brooklyn Bridge to Coney Island, Brooklyn has long been a traveler's favorite. Visit the Queens museum for an incredible building-for-building model of the entire city. Head over to the Bronx for the world-famous Bronx Zoo. And don't forget the miles of coastline, 12,300 acres of parkland and historical buildings that Staten Island offers. Even getting to each borough is an experience. Grand Central Terminal, Penn Station and NYC's other historic transportation hubs are a sight to behold.

No matter where you prefer to set up your home base, Triphop can find you the best prices on luxury or budget hotels. We're also here to help you decide the best time for you to visit the City of Dreams. The widely agreed 'best times' to visit NYC are from April to June and from September to early November. You'll enjoy mild weather while avoiding the tourist crush of summer. However, for those on a budget, mid-January to early February will save you a pretty penny – especially if you travel on the weekend. Don't forget, NYC is beautiful in the winter as well. 

As for transport – you may choose to rent a car for errands and young children, but otherwise, the transport system in NYC can get you anywhere cheaply. If you prefer, cabs and ride-shares are part of the fabric of the city. Just remember - riding the letter trains is part of the experience!

Luxury hotels in New York

Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown.5-star



.745 reviews

Wow, we are Four Seasons converts. This was our 4th trip to NY in as many years, and we have previously chosen beautiful boutique hotels in Soho, but Four Seasons you have impressed us. The Premier King Room was not only beautiful and full of modern amenities but incredibly spacious with actual room to move about in. Cupboards and storage were like a walk in robe, which led into the AMAZING bathroom. Beautiful bath, large shower, heated floors but most importantly actual space with a second makeup station & wall mirror which makes getting ready with your partner a breeze. The staff are all super friendly and helpful. At our request they also organised a chauffeur from JFK, and despite an 8 hour delay out of LAX our airport greeter and driver were there for us in the middle of the night. Having flown from Australia this extra support was well worth it having been travelling for over 24 hours. Thanks Four Seasons we will return!

The Plaza Hotel.5-star



.6687 reviews

Beautiful and elegant Grande Dame of a hotel. The lobby is romantic and elegant and very beautiful plus the food hall downstairs is fun and yummy. Rooms were overhauled some time ago and the ones I saw are modern and very nice. And service is exquisite.

Andaz 5th Avenue - a concept by Hyatt.4.5-star



.854 reviews

This is a five star rating with one little caveat but before I get to that, I need to express my gratitude to the entire staff at Andaz for my NY Christmas vacation. Sometimes even great customer service can feel a little business like which I still appreciate, but at Andaz the staff had a very human touch that featured genuine kindness. When I checked in I knew it would be a great stay when the person was able to get a held room unlocked to put my friend and I next to each other in the exact part of the hotel we wanted to be in. Housekeeping was impressive in many ways. The room was spotless on arrival, not a stray hair or sign of any previous guest in the room. I had many friends visit me and needed multiple towel replenishment as we used my room as NY central because of its location. They were always brought up promptly. I was loving the trip but later came down with a bad cold and ended up sweating through sheets and duvet covers three straight nights. Housekeeping was very sympathetic and changed everything every night and left me extra sheets and pillowcases if I needed them on the middle of the night. One night I sweated through the duvet cover and the duvet itself and they quickly replaced them, all with graciousness. All the housekeepers are great communicators and work with you on timing of the room cleaning. They try very hard to accommodate your schedule and do not seem overburdened with too many rooms. The caveat is that the beds themselves do not have a firm enough mattress for my liking and that almost made me detract a star but when I mentioned this to housekeeping they brought up some boards to put under the mattress which definitely helped. And later that night I received a plate of chocolate covered strawberries and a note apologizing for that inconvenience (completely unnecessary but appreciated). As far as the room itself you can’t imagine a more perfect getaway space. Very simple, stylish and functional without a lot of clutter (bad artwork) on the walls. I love how easy it is to control all the lights and the thermostat from the bed. The ceilings are high and the bathrooms expansive with the greatest rainforest shower area that makes you never want to leave. The hot water never runs out as attested to by a long fun dual shower that lasted 45 minutes. No more details on that. Location is perfect for me, near grand central and a whole foods where I brought food up to my room. The staff brought me all kinds of eating utensils and didn’t charge for that kind of request. The rooms are pricey but they don’t nickel and dime you. They give out free sodas and bottle water and staff did not look at my weirdly when I replenished multiple times a day for me and friends. What was most impressive was that Christmas in NYC is always busy and the hotel was completely booked every night I stayed there. Knowing that the service was this amazing at full capacity speaks volumes. It was truly memorable. Thanks again everybody!!

The Langham, New York, Fifth Avenue.5-star



.954 reviews

I cannot say enough good things! The staff is incredibly kind and took the time to chat with our children and made them feel so special. The daily treat in the lobby was such a fun surprise and the nightly cookies at turn down were delicious! The rooms and bathrooms are extremely spacious and kept very very clean throughout our stay. The upstairs restaurant was a great spot for drinks and the service was impeccable! They made a drink tailored to my husband’s liking. Overall I would give The Langham 10 stars if it were an option! This was our first trip to NYC from Florida and cannot wait to come back!

Club Quarters Hotel, Grand Central.4-star


Very Good

.782 reviews

Stayed here every couple months for the last couple years, always consistent and clean. It's larger than most NYC rooms. Free filtered water on every floor. Theres a rooftop lounge with free beverages and snacks. On the same rooftop, every night from 5-6pm is a free happy hour with your choice of red or white (inexpensive) wine. All around great place to stay and recommend.

Best budget hotels in New York

Vanderbilt YMCA

Average price $88/night



.456 reviews

If you’re on a budget and just need somewhere decent to sleep/shower for a weekend New York trip - I would highly recommend just staying here. It’s not a fancy hotel so don’t expect amenities of that sort. Rooms are small but that’s a given, since it’s the city. It’s surprisingly clean, well insulated (warm and cozy during the wintertime) and sharing the bathroom/ shower area on your floor will bring back memories of your college dorm room days. There were some plumbing issues on the bathroom on my floor but it wasn’t a big deal. There are additional rest rooms and showers in the downstairs gym/ pool area that you can use as well. Also, it’s very safe with security guards screening ppl at the front. This was perfect for us and we saved a lot of money that we used on eating good food instead! Thanks YMCA!

Executive Class at MTS Hotel

Average price $92/night



.27 reviews

Last day in this hotel. Great location, Executive Class rooms are very nice. Very comfortable bed, everything thing you want, breakfast consists of hot drink or juice, pastry/ muffins and fruit, plus tea/ coffe facility in room. Rooms also have hair dryer, iron and ironing board. Would stay here again

Hudson New York, Central Park

Average price $89/night



.196117 reviews

If you live in New York or your just visiting, you owe it to yourself to take a long slow walk through Central Park. Within minutes of your first few steps you will find your self surrounded by gorgeous trees, boulders and lush lawns, of course depending on what time of the year you venture in. As you get deeper into the park the large skyscrapers begin to fade and nature surrounds you. From the reservoir to the Zoo to many iconic stairwells and bridges recognized from popular film, there is a lot to take in. Central Park is especially brilliant during the fall as the leaves turn.

The Gallivant Times Square

Average price $86/night



.1960 reviews

So We stayed here on New year's Eve and day, room was comfortable, clean , with all basic necessities for an overnight stay. I chose the penthouse just to experience a bit of the festivities. Great for AA party of 4 or 6 at rooftop. There is no bar, yet there is a tasteful Restaurant next on lobby not own by hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful. Thanks for the attention I see myself in the future here...

Hotel Newton

Average price $85/night



.614 reviews

Really cozy hotel, centrally located to everything. Quick Lyft or subway to Upper or Lower City, easy walk to Central Park. Nice places to Eat, Bank, Shop, surround the hotel. Decent laundry by subway entrance. Access to a major subway hub is a half block away. Warm, friendly, accommodating staff. We booked a jr suite for 10 nights. Lots of storage, dressers, couch, and two Queen beds. Wet bar, fridge, microwave. Clean nice bathroom with a window and fan ( not all NY places have good humidity control. The Newton does.) Our room was super quiet for NYC. No internal or external noise. Reliable elevator. We travel a lot, and I’m picky. *Highly recommend*

Nyma The New York Manhattan Hotel

Average price $95/night



.984 reviews

No complaints. We enjoyed our stay. Nice staff. Comfortable room. Reasonable rates. Complimentary coffee all day. Convenient location near trains and Times Square. View of Empire State Building if you look up- as nyma is very close to ESB. Bring your own shampoo and conditioner ; they have it but it’s very very basic. We felt safe & slept well. There’s a rooftop bar too. They gladly extended our checkout to 1pm, which was nice. Great housekeeping staff too.

Things To Do In New York

Times Square

We've all heard of Times Square. It's not just a New York landmark, but also one of the most famous tourist destinations in the world. But then, that's to be expected with a place nicknamed "The Crossroads of the World" and "The Center of the Universe." What may be unexpected, however, is precisely how breathtaking of an experience it is to visit Times Square in person. Any visitor will tell you the movie scenes and pictures can't do it justice! 

The first thing you'll want to see will likely be the massive electronic billboards. Most of us don't realize how big they are – with an average size of over 2,000 square feet, that's well over twice the size of the average NYC apartment. Another surprising fact about Times Square is that there are multiple attractions in the area. These include Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Times Square, Madame Tussauds New York, The Hard Rock Café, Planet Hollywood, and many more. 

Add to that a dizzying number of shopping and dining options plus great people watching, and you've got a tourist attraction that's sure not to disappoint. While there are official events many days of the year, the 'Ball Drop' every New Years Eve is hard to beat.

Central Park

The most visited urban park in the country, Central Park, is 843 acres of natural beauty, attractions, and art. With over 26,000 trees and innumerable plants and shrubs, nature lovers will find Central Park irresistible. Taking a famous 'tree walk' and perusing the gardens and lakes will also grant visitors glimpses of the park's many bird species, squirrels and freshwater fish. 

Of the many attractions on hand, The Central Park Zoo may well be the most famous. But there are many more. Many impressive sculptures have fascinated visitors for years, as have structures like the Minton Tile Ceiling at Bethesda Terrace and regular art exhibitions. Don't be surprised if you stumble onto a concert or play during your visit. A winter visit doesn't mean there's nothing to see – an outdoor swimming pool and seasonal amusement park turn into Central Park's famous ice skating rinks.

Broadway is widely considered to be among the top theater districts in the world. Performances take place in 41 theaters in Midtown Manhattan. From smaller venues like The Hayes Theatre to larger ones like the famed Gershwin Theatre, world-class productions are always there for the viewing. Newer Broadway shows like Spongebob Squarepants and Harry Potter join long-running classics such as The Phantom Of The Opera and Cats to offer outings that are perfect for date night and the whole family. A favorite venue is one named The Broadway Theatre (on 53rd Street).

Ellis Island and The Statue of Liberty

NYC may not be a tropical paradise, but two of the city's most compelling attractions still happen to be islands! Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty's Liberty Island are New York Harbor fixtures that are a large part of American history. In the 19th and early 20th century, Ellis Island was the nation's busiest immigrant inspection station. As a result, many Americans can trace their family's U.S. arrival to this tiny island. Now, a majestic renovated main building joins numerous historical sites as fascinating attractions. 

The Statue Of Liberty, meanwhile, is the centerpiece of nearby Liberty Island. Gifted to the people of the United States by France, this breathtaking 300-foot tall statue has become one of the most recognizable American symbols. The island also is home to the Statue of Liberty Museum, which hosts the statue's original torch and exhibits about its history.

Empire State Building

It may no longer be the tallest building in the world, but the Empire State Building remains one of its most iconic. Following its completion in 1931, the building did hold that title for nearly 40 years. Even after losing its title, the Empire State Building has remained a popular destination for many reasons. It's stunning Art Deco design has endured as one of the most captivating amongst skyscrapers. Perhaps the biggest attraction within the building, however, is its open-air observation deck on the 86th floor. There's also an enclosed one a mind-spinning 102 stories above ground level. Without a doubt, you'll experience the finest view of the midtown skyline.
