4 star hotel
Area: Theater District - Times Square
1.11 mi from The New York Historical Society
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.
5 star hotel
Area: Midtown East
1.23 mi from The New York Historical Society
Best Rooms: The hotel has both Park View and City View rooms. The Park View is requested more often and is nicer to have during the day, but the city lights make the City View rooms more desirable at night.
