I have a few days in New York in July, as a stop over to Washington DC to attend a Microsoft Conference It is my first time to new York. I read the FAQ regarding the different locations in New York, and I am still lost where I should stay. I am a guy, travelling single and I would like to walk around, look at art, history, people and food. Not really into shopping and family stuff. I might do a musical on broadway, I might visit the statue of liberty just to tick it off my list, I might do the Empire state building for the same reason.
I want to stay at a starwood hotel as I am SPG platinum status so I get more bang for buck compared to other chains. maybe at the range of USD 200-300 a night give or take.
Is there a SPG hotel in a location like San Francisco's Union Square (Westin St Francis) which I liked the location and what it offers? (Close to shopping, great food, fisherman's wharf and the golden gate park...etc).
I would really love to hear some opinions.
Thanks so much for helping.
