What’s New

There is no shortage of New York City luxury hotels boasting Manhattan’s most decadent rooms and penthouses, city views, services, dining, spas and central locations. Many of these hotels are historical landmarks as well as famous movie and television icons. Think you can’t afford a luxury hotel? Think again! Though some of these hotels may not sound familiar, many are owned by popular International Hotel Chains, so if you have loyalty points accrued, luxury in NYC may just be in your near future.

What Should I Do in New York City? What isn’t available with New York City Tourism? Hardly anything! Attractions, world-famous landmarks, theater, museums, architecture, TV and movies, 843 acres of green park, thousands of kids’ activities, every food imaginable …and so much more!

Valentines Day in New York City can be so magical and romantic. Looking for a sexy or romantic hotel room? Or maybe a Singles “Anti-Valentines Day Party?” Something fun to with the family – like a free movie and ice skating? How about Half Price tickets to a Romantic Valentine’s Day Dessert Cruise?

Romantic New York City hotel deals can include candles, flowers, massage oils, champagne, rose petals, erotica, kama sutra and love games. Many top NYC Romantic and Sexy Hotels have special Valentines Day, honeymoon, anniversary and wedding packages…or they are great hotels anytime of the year if your agenda is romance and relaxation. Check out NYC Insider picks for top NYC Romantic Hotels and Valentine’s Day NYC Packages.

Take to the Manhattan skies for an exciting NYC Helicopter Tour! Enjoy spectacular aerial views of Manhattan on this memorable 12-minute helicopter flight that takes you past the Statue of Liberty, Wall Street and the humbling sight of Ground Zero. Catch a glimpse of the magnificent Empire State Building and historic Ellis Island for a truly birds-eye view of New York City!

While the New York CityPASS is normally good for Nine (9) days, customers who start using their booklet on or after December 15, 2010 will have until February 28, 2011 to enjoy each ticket in the booklet once. For travel starting February 20, 2011 or later, the normal 9-day validity period will apply. Check the New York CityPass Winter Special.
