Dear Business Traveler
Welcome to Your Day in New York
Business travelers are focused on their work and move at a faster speed. Location is important. Traveler should be close to the office, on meeting site.

With all the noise, color, flash and bustle of Times Square, Broadway and Rockefeller Center, Midtown is the neighborhood many picture first when they think of New York. Rockefeller Center, Sixth Avenue (with its Mad Men–era architecture), Grand Central Terminal and St. Patrick’s Cathedral are all among the world’s most recognizable destinations. The neighborhood isn’t just sightseeing, however: it also boasts top-flight restaurants and bars, including the Theatre District’s Restaurant Row and rowdy Hell’s Kitchen’s bars and clubs.
