4.5-Star Mystery Hotel in Midtown East
Though it’s in New York, the 18-acre stretch along the East River from 42nd to 48th Streets belongs to neither the city nor the United States. It’s officially an international zone occupied by the United Nations Headquarters, where diplomats gather to address matters of pressing international concern. Visitors can take a guided tour of the General Assembly Hall to see exhibits on human rights and a collection of artwork donated by nations from all over the world. The UN complex and other Manhattan mainstays, including Grand Central Station, the shops of Fifth Avenue, and the Theatre District, lie in proximity to this mystery hotel.
The hotel frequently accommodates visiting dignitaries and attachés. The decor is fittingly stately and impressive, from the marble-clad lobby to the large windows framing views of the Manhattan skyline. But the atmosphere is far from stuffy, thanks in part to a staff that’s been praised in the press for their warmth and friendliness. Having recently undergone a multimillion-dollar renovation, the hotel also offers a tennis court and a swimming pool.
The upscale restaurant onsite serves a breakfast buffet in the morning. Breakfast is not included in this offer, but can be purchased for an additional charge. You can head to the newly opened café for Illy-brand coffee drinks and evening wine service. The hotel’s lounge is a good place to unwind with a cocktail while snacking on pub fare, such as poutine. Or you can always walk to any of the world-class restaurants and bars located in the neighborhood.
Upper East Side and Midtown East: Unparalleled Fashion, Art, and Theater in Bustling Manhattan
The cultural core of the Big Apple, Midtown Manhattan buzzes with nonstop activity. Tourists come in droves to take snapshots of the Empire State Building, Grand Central Station, and the Chrysler Building. At Times Square and in the Theatre District, stories-high advertisements tout shows at legendary Broadway theaters standing next to kitschy souvenir stores.
On Central Park’s eastern edge, Fifth Avenue is an excellent thoroughfare for window shopping and people watching. Peek in art galleries from 39th Street to 60th Street as you make your way to The Frick Collection—a mansion-turned-museum housing European masterpieces by El Greco, Rembrandt, Renoir, Velázquez, and Regis Philbin. Fifth Avenue is also where you’ll find many of the city's Zagat-rated restaurants and upscale boutiques, including Tiffany, Saks, and Gucci.
