Insider's View

If arriving late into New York, there's always great room service but there is also a fantastic Whole Foods Market in the basement of 'the shops' that's ideal for picking up healthy food from sushi to fresh pressed juices on arrival, or for days you've over indulged!

When to go

Summer or winter, rain or shine, there's always great stuff going on in New York, so when you're planning a trip, there's no real "best" or "worst" time to go. Weather wise fall and spring are the best times in New York. From April to June and September to November, temperatures are mild and pleasant, and the light is beautiful. Summers can be hot and humid while winter snowfalls are not uncommon.

September to December is conference season in New York, and we would advise booking early for travel during this period.
