3 star hotel
Area: Upper West Side
0.23 mi from Rose Center for Earth and Space
Best Rooms: Situated next to W 81st St. and surrounded by the buildings, Upper West Side has no real views to offer.
Best Rooms: Superior Queens may be the best value if you're looking for a view. They face either Amsterdam Ave. or W. 79th St., and you'll be able to see the residential area.
Best Rooms: The hotel is surrounded by other buildings and doesn’t offer any real views other than W 76th St. from rooms facing north.
Best Rooms: Park View Rooms offer the best views, which are of Central Park. There are only two of them: one located on floor 2 and the other on floor 12. However, these must be directly through the hotel.
4 star hotel
Area: Theater District - Times Square
1.20 mi from Rose Center for Earth and Space
Best Rooms: The only way to guarantee a great view is to book a Times Square View room or suite. Concierge level rooms facing 7th Ave. or 55th St., on floors 18 - 25, offer nice city views as well.
Best Rooms: The 3 Bedroom Suites have the best views from higher floors because they face many different direction and offer panoramic cityscape views and views of the East River. If you're just looking for a Studio or a 1 Bedroom Suite, request the highest floor possible for the best city view.
