hi i am looking at taking my daughter to new york for about 4 night in sept or oct or nov next year. ive never been there before so looking for some info and advice. where is hest to book with and price wise when is the best time to go? my daughter wears a splint on her leg i know there will be walking involved but we can use the tube when we need to or bus tours. looking for a hotel kinda central for things but not extortionate. any info/advice would be great. we live in glasgow but could leave from edinburgh too. i seen an airline is going to be doing flights from edinburgh starting next summer for £56 plus taxes so not sure whether to hold off on flights until then.

Hi,

I have been many times and you have made a great decision to go to New York. I don't think any airline will be doing flights for £56 plus taxes, maybe you have missed a '0' off?

Hotels wise and given the splint in leg I would recommend to Roosevelt Hotel. Good value exceptional quality 4star property close to everything.

Finally - I would recommend you don't use the subway (tube) - It really isn't as good as the London version and taxis are very cheap and plenty full - you also see a lot more of this fantastic city from the back of a cab.

If you want to splash out more cash take her to the Soho Grand - very posh hotel but in the financial district so not walking distance to Midtown/main tourist attractions.

Hope that helps - if you do find a flight for £56 please post it on here!!!!

I see, however they currently advertise a trans Atlantic crossing from Gatwick for £149....a price that is only actually obtainable 4 days out of 365...

Also a 'secondary' Airport in New York will be a lot further away from manhattan than Stanstead is to Leicester Square..

October was really expensive for us a few years ago, room prices compared to earlier in the year were at least double if not treble jan-may rates, probably worth checking the same hotel on dates in each month before booking the flights as you may make a significant saving one month over another..

I wouldn't recommend going in Jan or Feb as the temperature would make Scottish winters seem like the Sahara...it was minus 17 when I last went in Feb

Depends on what the second airport is if its La Guardia thats closer and i say more convenient than JFK to get to manhattan.Yes the price will be limited to certain flights but they will be available £149 is not bad from LGW.Last year i got a glitch flight for just over £200 return last year it was via Oslo which was fun to visit.

We went to New York in august this year, had a brilliant time. We stayed in citizen m hotel on 51st street, it was a brilliant hotel very inexpensive. It is near broadway and Times Square.

Yes, its the closest airport to Manhattan - takes 45mins (its a primary airport not a secondary airport)
#16
To really help we need to know your budget per person and where you'd be flying from.
I'm flying from Manchester, and it's actually cheaper then a flight from London, even though the return flight involves a change in Heathrow.
#17
flying from glasgow direct if possible and about £800 per person

I would definitely book your transfers when you book your holiday. The cab queues are terrible.
You do find that the New Yorkers are really helpful and friendly- never be afraid to ask as they are always willing to help.
If you want to go up the Rockefeller Tower which is better than the Empire State be aware you have to book your time. You cannot turn up, pay and go up.

​great thanks

Also ref Empire State Building, there are two prices. They is one advistied outside and when you get inside after the queues there is another. the one you see on the outside does not take you all the way to the top. Also the one World Trade Center is taller now and a whole lot better, the views are breathtaking. I do recommend you hire the iPad at the top it costs

I flew to JFK, and the price off a taxi was 55dollars (set price) from the airport to my hotel in Times Square.if you are limited on time i would use the subway they are very inexpensive and you get to where you are going quite quickly, they work really well with goggle maps

hi yes one is just read about norwegian air
56 quid + tax one way and then extra for baggage, sandwich, entertainment etc etc etc. You will end up paying about the same as a proper flight.

What a fabulous place to celebrate your daughters 21st birthday. It is very easy to get about in NY with plenty of yellow cabs. I have been in August and found it too hot , Feb is very cold. April , may ,October, Nov are good times to go. My son once went beginning of Dec and was walking round in t shirts as was still warm in the day time. If you go Dec you will also get the Christmas joy. It is important to pick the right area as you don't want to end up to far out of town, Times Square is good central location. Check out the hotels on trip advisor for details on location . Have a fab time

save money on cabs and use uber in ny use a card like post office mastercard or halifax clarity and uber will save you a fortune use with three at home sim card and you have a very easy way of getting round for a competitive price

I went in mid September last year and the weather was perfect for exploring the city. Blue skies and warm (but not too hot) during the day and still warm in the evenings. The subway is very easy to get around but if your daughter has a splint you could easily use Uber, which is very affordable. Make sure you do Top of the Rock - book for a late afternoon session and you can stay as long as you want and watch the sunset over NY - magical!
