The hotel is located on 5th Avenue, though the main entrance is on East 41st Street, just across the street from the New York Public Library and Bryant Park. Other attractions which are walkable from this lovely hotel include the Empire State Building, Times Square, Grand Central Terminal and Rockefeller Center, although it takes around an hour to taxi from New York-JFK airport to the hotel and around half an hour from LaGuardia Airport (LGA).

“We set these departure times for mainly two reasons. The first one is ensure that once the curfew expires we are at the top of the queue for runway departure. The second is to help the flow into and out of the alley for the gates – it’s already tightly shared space. If all aircraft were set to push back at the same time, it wouldn’t work out very well.” … [Read more...] about Why Is American The First Airline To Fly Out Of New York?
afternoon tea at the gorgeous Oscar Wilde lounge earlier in the year. But it was last year in July (when our Oscar was just a twinkle in the eye) that I first tried the restaurant Laurent.

Shame the same can’t be said for the street level eatery that serves as the hotel’s breakfast offering – better to hold off, jump in a cab and head towards the Lower West Side for brunch. In Pilsen, Vietnamese powerhouse HaiSous, a location in Richard Gere’s 1996 film Primal Fear, serves up an array of dishes that will have you booking flights to Hanoi before the bill arrives. I recommend ordering a mix, with personal favourites including Bo Nuong Trung Op La (grilled ribeye, fried egg, steamed rice) or Canh Ga Chien, the best fried chicken wings with crispy garlic and steamed rice you’ll ever eat. While you’re in the area stop off at Moody Tongue brewery for beers created with a chef’s mindset, and layers of flavours. Join a guided tour and try the 12-layer signature chocolate cake created by pastry chef Shannon Morrison. … [Read more...] about Chicago, explore the city’s diverse culinary landscape
