  • Incredibly Comfortable, Spacious Apartment in an Ideal Location.

    "My wife and I stayed here for the week of Thanksgiving in 2013. I wish we had known about this apartment on our previous trips to NYC and not spent double the money for a third of the space and comfort. The best thing about Honored Guest Properties (also check out their listing in Villefranche sur Mer) is that they are fully furnished apartments that feel like the owners actually lived there for an extended period, so *everything* is provided. If you feel like picking up something from the multiple markets nearby and cooking, you have every cooking implement you could ever want. There are loads of guidebooks and other tour guide references as well. The apartment is wonderfully decorated and full of little luxuries like Elizabeth Arden bath towels (drool). The best things about this rental are: - Location. You cannot ask for a better location in Manhattan. It is central to everything worth seeing. It really gives you the best of Chelsea and the West Village. - Space. This rental is amazingly spacious for two people and can easily accommodate four. We stayed here for a week but could have easily stayed here for six months without feeling like we're tripping over each other. - Comfort. There are a million things to see and do in NYC but if you're exhausted from the day's adventures or the weather is miserable, it is very tempting to sit on the sofa, pop in one of the owners' CDs, read a book, and look up now and then at the beautiful skyline with the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building in full view. We consider this apartment our new home in NYC and look forward to staying there again in March 2014."

  • Not a "Dream Apartment" but Functional/Good locale

    "This is a REAL review. We just arrived home yesterday from our trip to NYC. Several of the reviews listed directly below this one are questionable as they also review other properties owned/managed by this group. Our family with four kids (ages 14 to 10) stayed in this apartment for a week. Overall, the apartment looks as it is pictured but do not get the impression this is a fancy apartment. It isn't. The furnishings are inexpensive, the mattresses should be replaced, and some of the appliances are less than ideal (the microwave is slow and the coffee pot leaks) BUT it is in a great location, the kitchen is fairly well stocked (with the exception of a baking sheet), the A/C works great even in July (the noise helps drown out the street noise), the wifi worked (important to kids), the cable worked most of the time (would go out intermittently for some odd reason), a sponge, trash bags, some toilet paper/paper towels, dish soap and detergent for dishwasher were provided, Diego was responsive and we had no major problems. Overall, I would say this apartment works great if you intend to stay for an extended period of time in NYC and want an option that is not a hotel so you can eat some meals in and have a little more space than a hotel room. The apartment is ideally located to several subway lines, Times Square and Central Park. This is honestly it's strongest selling point. The stairs are a pain but it's good exercise so I'm not complaining too much about that."

  • Wonderful visit to NYC!!

    "My sister and I stayed at this apartment for four nights and we absolutely loved it. We enjoyed the neighborhood and it was very close to the subway. Luca was extremely helpful and John was very nice too. You can hear some noise in the apartment and yes the subway runs under the apartment, but you are in NYC, what do you expect? The noise or the subway never bothered us at all. We were so tired when we came back from exploring the city that we slept like rocks in the super comfy bed. The photos in the apartment was very nice too. The overall feel of the apartment was very nice. It gave us the feel of being real New Yorkers for a few days and was way way better than staying in a hotel. If you do stay here, you have to eat at the Grey Dog on Carmine street, it is delicious. There are several places down Carmine to eat. The neighborhood in General is nice and it was convenient from the airport. We would definitely recommend this apartment and hope to return again for another visit in NYC."

  • Nice Apartment, great location

    "We stayed in this apartment for 10 nights and it was excellent. The location is great, away from the noise of Times Square but close to Central Park, Metropolitan Museum and many other attractions. There is a subway station nearby which we used everyday to get around, much faster than taxis and buses in all the traffic. The apartment was easy to find and Hara was there to meet us and gave us some good tips about New York. There was coffee and tea supplied and plenty of towels. There are also many great restaurants within walking distance, The Beach Cafe on the corner was very good. We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and would definitely stay there again when we travel to New York."

Manhattan Travel Tips

Known as the cultural and economic hub of the United States, Manhattan is one of the five boroughs that make up New York City. Even though it’s the smallest of the five, it’s personality and "never sleep" attitude has made it one of the most iconic and cosmopolitan locales on earth.

Manhattan is full of history, culture, excitement and thrilling experiences. It’s the home of famous landmarks and economic staples. From the United Nations to the Chrysler Building, Wall Street, the New York Stock Exchange and the glittering lights of Broadway, there is more than enough to satisfy every traveler who visits the island no matter what their interests are.

Whether you hail a taxi, take to sidewalk or hop on the city's famous subway, days can be filled with perusing through different shops, dining at the finest restaurants and seeing some of the best theater in the country.

Areas of Manhattan to Explore

Broadway: This neon-tinged boulevard is best known for its portion that houses block after block of venues in the theater district. It’s the oldest north-south thoroughfare in New York City. The theater district, also known as the Great White Way, is home to several Broadway theater that produce large-scale musicals and plays that attract theater goers from all around the world.The bar is set very high in Manhattan when it comes to the stage, so even if you venture to an off-Broadway production, no doubt you will be impressed.

Central Park: When you think of Manhattan, chances are images of Central Park come to mind. This massive green space has been at the heart of the Big Apple since the mid-19th century. In 1962, Central Park was designated a National Historic Landmark. It’s the perfect place to experience nature and get some fresh air away from the skyscrapers. You can wander through here on an afternoon stroll, enjoy a picnic, take a carriage ride or play a pick-up game of baseball. Children will enjoy a ride on the carousel or playing at one of the 21 playgrounds in Central Park.

Rockefeller Center: In the winter, Rockefeller Center features the country’s most famous Christmas tree under which people can enjoy ice skating around the rink or sip hot chocolate. It’s also the home of Radio City Musical Hall and the popular Rockettes, who perform a Christmas spectacular as well as other shows year-round.

Greenwich Village: For all things offbeat, there is no better spot in Manhattan than Greenwich Village. Once home to beatniks and hippies in the 1960s, this neighborhood hasn't lost its alternative edge over the years. Pop into an Irish pub, live music venue or dive bar, grab a slice of authentic New York pizza or enjoy one of the best collections of ethnic cuisine in the country.{I added this to include more of the island geographically}

Times Square: Also in Midtown you’ll find Times Square, a major commercial intersection at Broadway and 7th Avenue stretching from West 42nd to West 47th streets. Known as the “Crossroads of the World,’ Times Square is situated near the theater district and has some of the busiest pedestrian traffic in the country. If you’re in the city on New Year’s Eve, there’s no more famous place to watch the ball drop than Times Square itself.

Famous Landmarks to See in Manhattan

Empire State Building: Standing 102 stories tall in Midtown, the Empire State Building is hard to miss, and has become one of the cultural symbols of New York as well as the United States. It’s considered a structural marvel designed in the Art Deco style and is one of the seven wonders of the modern world, according to the American Society of Civil Engineers. Visitors can take in panoramic views of Manhattan from the 86th or the 102nd floor observation decks. The breathtaking urban vistas here are considered to be very romantic and created the setting for many famous love scenes in movies like "An Affair to Remember" and "Sleepless in Seattle."

Statue of Liberty: The ultimate symbol of freedom and America, no trip to Manhattan is complete without a visit to the State of Liberty. It was designed by Frederic Auguste Bartholdi and given to the United States as a gift from France. Lady Liberty captured the spirit of American progress, as she welcomed immigrants and visitors to the United States through Ellis Island during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Visitors enter through the statue’s base and can climb the stairs to the crown to take in the views of the Manhattan skyline.

Central Park Zoo: For an activity the whole family can love, visit the Central Park Zoo. This wild attraction is the perfect place to witness some of your favorite creatures up close and personal. The main exhibit areas range from polar to temperate to tropic. You can experience a rainforest with fruit bats and anteaters, the penguin house, the polar bear pool and an ant colony. There’s also a children’s zoo for younger kids to enjoy.
