New York design hotel getaway: Save 10%

Midtown Manhattan has long been one of the most thriving and exciting areas in New York City. With the theatre district a stone’s throw away, Central Park on the doorstep and a range of unique and innovative restaurants and bars found throughout this marvellous section of Manhattan, midtown is the perfect place to stay on your next Big Apple break.
Hudson hotel

You’ll find a plethora of uber-chic hotels in midtown but none quite as stylish as the Hudson hotel on West 58th Street. This New York hotel is as cool as they come, with fresh, zesty interiors created by French designer Philippe Starck, inspiring architecture both inside and out and a fabulous range of bars drawing in young professionals and artists all year round.
Hudson Dining

Spend four nights at this New York hot spot and save 10 per cent on bookings made from the 1st April until the 22nd July 2014. Sleep in luxurious bedrooms decorated with lamps by British photographer Nick Veasey, hang out at the Hudson Lodge bar, which is NYC’s first ski resort-themed bar, and enjoy the views from the hotel’s sky terrace, a beautiful garden overlooking the stunning city.
Hudson Room

Of course it’s not just the hotels in midtown that ooze style and elegance - the streets are lined with heaps of exclusive restaurants and bustling bars. For your fix of classic New York speakeasy vibes head to ‘21’ club on W. 52nd St. Once popular with NYC’s most notable Wall Street workers and even frequented by former US presidents, you won’t be disappointed at this bar and diner in the heart of midtown.
Le Barnardin

For lavish luxury and the finest ingredients a trip to Le Barnardin on W. 51st is an absolute must. This restaurant proudly boasts three Michelin stars and once you’ve sampled the food it’s clear to see why, with its Kobe beef flown in especially from Japan and each dish made with the most exquisite attention to detail.
NYC

Fifth Avenue, possibly New York’s most famous street and definitely its most glamorous, runs right through the centre of midtown. Shop to your heart’s content on this busy street and recuperate in one of the many swanky bars that decorate this lavish strip.
Empire  

It’s not just the designer shops and enchanting bars that make Fifth Avenue one of a kind though – look to the skies and you’ll see some of the city’s most famous buildings, including the iconic Empire State building. The Rockefeller Centre, Chrylser building, Seagram building and Grand Central Station are just a few of the other New York icons found in the magnificent midtown area.  
Broadway

Finally, once you’ve got your fashion fix in the shops, dined at the best restaurants and soaked up the atmosphere in the many bars it’s time to explore NYC's world-class art and culture. For starters, Broadway is a must for any theatre lover, with the world’s best shows taking place seven days a week.
The Starry Night

Art lovers will be spoiled in midtown, with The Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh found at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) as well as an abundance of other celebrated works of art. Alternatively, take a stroll through the galleries at the International Centre of Photography to browse through and be inspired by more than 100,000 photographs.
Carnegie Hall  

Fans of music won’t be let down either, with concerts of all genres taking place all over Manhattan. Midtown is a musical hub and anybody who appreciates the history of music should visit the Carnegie Hall, one of the most prestigious music venues on the planet, which has seen the Beatles, The Doors, Tina Turner, Benny Goodman and Judy Garland grace its stage, to name but a few.
