Old World charm meets modern convenience at The Renwick, whose appealing brick facade is just steps from everything Midtown Manhattan has to offer. This boutique hotel in the Murray Hill neighborhood is especially convenient for those traveling to New York by train: the hotel is only 2 blocks from the world’s largest train station, Grand Central Terminal. Even if you fly in, Grand Central is worth checking out. The local subway stops at the station too, so plan on walking around the gorgeous, expansive space before you hop aboard to other city sights. You don’t need the subway to start sightseeing, though: plenty of top attractions are within walking distance. Fifth Avenue shopping is an easy 5-minute stroll up the street from The Renwick, and you only have to cross Fifth to find the huge New York Public Library. Bryant Park, directly behind the library, is a great place to grab a sandwich and relax. Be sure to check out the view from the Empire State Building, a 15-minute walk from the hotel. Spent most of your cash but still want to see live theater? Hoof it 20 minutes to the TKTS booth in Times Square to purchase day-of-show tickets at a discount. If you’re in the mood to venture out, the concierge can recommend an eatery nearby. Coin-operated laundry facilities and a 24-hour health club, both located on site, are an additional convenience. For transportation convenience, there is valet parking and an airport shuttle available for a surcharge. In the guestrooms, refrigerators there are refrigerators for your convenience. Grab some hot popcorn and a cool drink, and relax in front of the flat-screen TV. Microwaves are also available on request. Don’t feel like cooking? Bloom’s Deli, right down the block, offers delivery service (surcharge). Wireless Internet access is free and if your guestroom is on an upper floor, you’ll enjoy views of the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building.
