Some of the world’s best theatre, shopping, nightlife and food are available here – as well as iconic NYC sights that once seen, are never forgotten.
New York is actually five cities within the NYC umbrella – combining the boroughs of Manhattan, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Staten Island and Queens – all of which have their own style and identity. While most of the fun starts in Manhattan – don’t miss out on exploring the less known sites around the city.

The Yotel, New York offers a number of ways to make your stay extra special – if you know about them! Here are our insider’s secrets for the Yotel:
Don’t be too surprised that Yotel looks a great deal like a modern passenger jet inside. It was designed by the same people who created the first class luxury of Virgin’s Upper Class cabins.
The Sunday brunch served on the terrace is pretty famous already, with a big nod from the New York Post reportedly.
It’s not often that you can have your luggage safely stored by a robot. The Yobot does exactly that, picking it up and placing it in a secure locker (and getting it out again, of course). Not a talkative member of staff, but very efficient.
Yotel is one of the growing number of hotels that qualify for LEED status. This means that they meet standards on the green agenda. These include things like energy efficiency and other ‘greener’ practices.
