The Millenium UN Plaza Hotel in NYC

Today we are taking a bit of a departure. I talk so much about going to New York, that I thought I would share one of my favorite places to stay. A place that has large rooms, good deals and is 4 stars. Think 199.00 a night , or 169.00 at the midtown version.

After all this is a great time of year to be headed to the city . All the wonderful Christmas decorations and shops. Alternately, Winter is also great as the city quiets down a bit and there are even better deals as it's the slower season.

The Millennium UN Plaza Hotel is right near the East River( almost all rooms have a fabulous view thru large windows.). It overlooks the UN as well. It is in a quieter area in general and not right in the noise of mid town but not that far either. It's only 4 blocks to Grand Central Station and only slightly farther to 5th Ave.

The rooms are huge. In NY, a closet can pass as a room and they will charge you a fortune. This hotel really delivers the room size. Plus it has one of the few indoor pools in a Manhattan hotel. The pool has windows all around for a great view too.

There is also an indoor tennis court and health club. All free with your room. Believe me after running around NYC all day, I swim is so nice.

The lobby is elegant green marble, a friendly staff and restaurant on premises( I have not tried that, however.) Concierge, bag holding. All the amenities you expect from a top hotel.

Deals for this gem pop up often, especially on

There is a great one right now for booking thru Nov. 24( Yes, tomorow) If you miss this one, keep your eyes open though.

Sister hotel The Millennium Broadway, truly in the thick of the action, is having an even better deal at 169.00 - 199.00 on dates thru March. Thats unreal.

I have stayed at a Millenium in London as well, so know to always looks to this brand first. I am planing on staying at one of them for next Fashion Week.
