TRAVEL: New York - CitizenM in Central Manhattan

TRAVEL: New York - CitizenM in Central Manhattan
If you're spending a few days in New York then staying in Central Manhattan is ideal, as you're close to many tourist attractions, incredible shopping, as well as the general hustle and bustle of the buzzing city. There's plenty to do within walking distance, so you can pack as much or as little as you want.


 CitizenM hotel is the perfect base for exploring Central Manhattan because it's just off Times Square, you don't get much more central than that! It's quirky, modern and has a panoramic rooftop bar with spectacular views of buzzing New York. The rooms are full of technology and relatively spacious for New York, space is at a premium especially in Central Manhattan. There's a MoodPad in each room, which allows you to control everything from the colour of light in the shower room to the tv to a wake up alarm to just browsing the internet. Every part of the hotel is utilised for our convenience, with an under bed storage drawer big enough for an open suitcase, one minute check in/out, 24 hour food and drink, free Wi-Fi and a gym overlooking NYC. They've designed your stay to be both comfortable yet appreciate that you're probably in New York to see the sights so they've made everything quick and easy. Once you have spent a long day exploring the rooftop bar is the perfect place to relax, while still being immersed in the New York way of life. CitizenM is an affordable option for Central Manhattan, so well worth checking out if you're planning a visit.
What to do in Central Manhattan?
See a show on Broadway
Buy significantly reduced theatre tickets from the TKTS Ticket Booth in Times Square
(personally I prefer this compared to going up the Empire State Building, the queues are shorter and you get to see the Empire State Building as part of the view)
Cycle around Central Park
Where to eat near CitizenM NYC?
Carmine's - Ridiculous sized portions of incredible Italian food
Shake Shack - Open until 12am so perfect for a quick burger + fries after watching a show
The Loeb Boathouse Central Park - Peaceful views of the lake with more fine dining food

  2. I love New York - I've been a couple of times a while back and it was such a fun place to be a tourist! We loved a carriage ride around Central Park, and a trip to Tiffanys (sadly didn't buy anything!) And a Broadway show is a must, isn't it? We saw 42nd Street while I was in the process of rehearsing for an amateur show of it at uni and it was fantastic. I've heard good things about Citizen M hotels - this one looks lovely.

  6. Wow this looks incredible! I have never been to New York, but I think the tall buildings look sooooo good in the dark, when they're all lit up. And the hotel looks so high tech!

  14. We went to NYC before we had the kids. I would love to take them back one day. But waiting until they are a little older since it’s a walking city. Hotel sounds great especially the rooftop bar and that they have made everything quick and convenient x

  15. Sounds like an amazing hotel. We visited New York 2 years ago but stayed in Astoria as prices of hotels were too far outside our budget. I'd love to stay on Manhattan Island next time though!
