THINGS TO DO
We'll have free time to explore the city during Convention. Below are a few ideas to help you get started with your planning. In addition, our hotel has many places to dine and gather in case you prefer to stay on the property.
PLANNING YOUR FREE TIME
First-time visitors tend to do these four activities:
Explore and Tour NYC
Get Tickets to a Broadway Show
Stroll through NYC Museums
Experience NYC’s Outdoor Adventures
There are several blogs, social media accounts, websites and more that can provide information based on what activities interest you. Here are a few websites to help you get started:
If you have a specific show in mind, then booking tickets in advance is a must. If you don’t mind which show you watch, getting discounted last-minute tickets is possible and can save you a lot of money.
You can find a list of shows and schedules here.
If you are booking online, head to Ticketmaster, TheaterMania, BroadwayBox and Goldstar. If you are buying in person, head to the Theatre Box office directly or use the TKT Booths around NYC.
If you want to avoid ticket fees, buy tickets in person from the Theatre Box Office to avoid ticket fees.
Tickets range from $20 to $175 depending on which show you watch.
To avoid missing the opening of the show, plan to arrive at least 30 minutes before showtime. This will give you enough time to go through security, deposit any bags or luggage, if needed and make your way to your seat.
Some of New York’s most prominent museums are The Met (Metropolitan Museum of Art),
MoMA (Museum of Modern Art), the Guggenheim, and the American Museum of Natural History. Some other popular, but lesser-known museums, are the Museum of the Moving Image, Museum of Mathematics, and the Louis Armstrong House.
Visit each museum’s website for hours, tickets and information.
RESTAURANTS AND RESERVATIONS
Using the Open Table app is one of the easiest ways to make a reservation. Outside of our hotel are many restaurants that range from street vendors and McDonalds to high end steak houses. Our hotel also has a few dining options as well if you wish to remain on-site. You can view the on-site dining options here.
