Aug 18th 2012 8:48AM If I am at a Hampton, I get the little to go bag and a coffee at Starbucks and get on the road. I haven't had any bad experiences at hotel breakfasts, knock on wood, but generally speaking bulk made food is yucky. I don't ever add the breakfast option, but if there is one included, I don't eat much. There usually aren't many vegetarian options, hence, better to eat elsewhere.
Jan 26th 2012 3:03PM Trying this again... The Paramount. LOL I am going to send them a bill for my good PR.
Jan 26th 2012 2:57PM Sorry, it was supposed to attach to my original post, which somehow I dorked up standing in line., The Paramount is on 46th between 7th and 8. The Edison is next door, which has an incredible 1920s type band, Vince Giordano. Swing 46 in the other direction also offers 40s type bands and swing dancing, great time.
Jan 26th 2012 9:10AM It really is a nice place. The lobby is unique and hopping. I didn't eat in the hotel since there are so many other places in NYC to eat on the go. I didn't have any noise and the housekeeping staff are super nice. The closets are Ikea style, if that makes sense, I mean, if you have a lot of stuff, it can get a little tight. I bought a sled and hockey sticks, so my room was full. Downstairs is Dean and DeLuca for coffee, security is everywhere. I slept like a rock in their bed, no complaints there either. Location though, unless you are sitting on top of the ball in Times Square, is super. They give you a bogo coupon for the bar and to the left next door is a pizza joint where I ate for 6 bucks. If you are looking for Shake Shack, go to the one on 8th Ave, the one in Madison Sq Park is always slammed. Up on 9th is a nice grocery store. Everything is just around the corner literally. Have a super time-Go Rangers!
Jan 26th 2012 7:32AM I had to comment on this article as I just came from NYC and stayed in a 100 dollar hotel. The Paramount on 46th, just a mere block from Times Square is an excellent hotel. Redone nicely in modern red and European style rooms, it is clean and in a prime location. Next door is the Edison, also nice, both are located in the Theatre District near Restaurant Row, you couldn't ask for much more. Granted, the rooms aren't huge, but if you hanging in your room while in NY, then you are on the wrong vacation.
Jun 25th 2010 5:16PM Why do they keep writing air tram when that isn't the airline's name?
Jun 25th 2010 5:12PM Just another reason why I choose to travel by train and not by plane. Not only is train travel less expensive, the experience and customer service beats anything the airlines are offering. Oh wait, they don't offer anything these days. No luggage, no peanuts, no food, no service. Don't forget to get shoved around, poked, prodded, and the other various forms of aggravation air travel has become.
The first thing is the child shouldn't have been allowed to take her turtle. Again people aren't paying attention to their children. Security?
The next thing, the employee needs a new job.
Take the train people. No hassles no problems.
Apr 27th 2010 3:17PM I am glad to hear something positive about the airlines, but with the way things are I only travel by train now. Not only is it reliable, it is extremely relaxing and fun. If you have the time to travel this way, I recommend it.
Feb 15th 2008 8:15AM Pillow tops it seems do get pretty hot after a "regular" mattress. I was roasting every night. I downsized my covers to the top sheet and a soft cotton blanket. That did the trick. Not only was I not cooked at night, it gave a new fresh look over the comforter and all that stuff that gets thrown on. My husband on the other hand, has the blankets stacked tower high on his side. How he manages to sleep at that temp is beyond me.
So for your guys talking about the heat-less blankets, lighter jammies, and you will enjoy it.
Feb 7th 2008 7:47AM We live in the far south-Lower Alabama. The concept of unsweet tea here is almost unheard of. Any drive thru you only have about a 1 in 10 shot of getting UNSWEET tea when you order it. More often than not, I drive off, taking a sip, having the enamel come off my teeth, having to park, and go in to get UNsweet. On the other hand, tea here isn't seasonal like some states-365 days a year for iced, but getting lemon is a challenge. "You want WHAT in your tea? A real lemon?? No packet?? Sug, we don't have any lemons. I got some sugar packets though..."
