New York: checking in
We checked into the Embassy Suites downtown. Might be a little on the pricey side, but with a cooked-to-order breakfast and a manager's reception including two complimentary alcoholic drinks every day, we were pretty happy with our choice. Not to mention the cosy suite with a living room and pull out bed, which is ideal if you are traveling in a group. And it's the closest we can get to apartment living in downtown Manhattan till we put our deposit down on that brownstone mansion near the Waldorf Astoria. Jokes aside, I would definitely recommend the hotel to you. It's within walking distance of the subway, and steps away from a serene riverside walk.
