Hi

We went up to Beacon as my cousin lives there.

At one point the railway line is only inches above the Hudson!

Beacon is a fabulous town - its very much a haven for artists - they have a glass blowing factory there, lots of galleries and lovely coffee shops.

I think the previous 2 stops are very good for walking activities - lots of people got off there for the day.

Its an hour from Central Station but in reality it feels like a different planet!
I know people dont go to NYC to go walking but its soo different and such a short journey away if anyone has a spare few hours its definately worth it.

Stayed at The London a couple of times which is West 54th just down from Central Park. It was fabulous, rooms are superb, mostly small suites.

Real quality hotel in our view.

Hope they have a great time.

We stayed at the marmara park ave on 32nd st and the luma on 41st, by Bryant Park, would stay at either again but for service and the room size would opt for the marmara which has a pool in the basement and a roof top bar.

Some really good suggestions coming on here thank you all.

I will make him a shortlist and his Partner can decide.

I loved NY and to this day remember popping into a Hilton for a drink (nothing changes) and seeing Pinchas Zukerman playing in the foyer. Awesome

We love the Warwick. Staying there for the third time in March. It's "old New York", built in the 1920s. Elegant without being fussy and not far from Central Park and the Rockerfeller Centre.

Tip: you can get 25% or 35% off in sales when you join their loyalty club.

Best rooms are the suites with views of 6th avenue.

The Marriott Eastside on Lexington Avenue is very nice, we have stayed there, its a great location, around the corner from Grand Central, 10 mins walk from Times Square, 5 mins from radio city and top of the rock and about 7 mins from the Library and 5th Avenue. This hotel is 2 mins from the Waldorf Astoria we have stayed there as well and much prefer the Marriott.

Another 3 good suggestions thank you.

Baboons. Like the sound of the 1920's hotel, is it themed to that era which although I don't remember contrary to what some people say is a fantastic time in history.
