Hi All

Myself and my hubbie are looking to visit NY next year but I don't like lifts or heights, I have said I will tolerate the lift and height of TOTR as a one off but I don't want to do it everyday at the hotel.

Can anyone point me in the right direction of either a low hotel or a hotel with low rooms I can walk up the stairs to.

1. Re: Accomodation

Even if you stay in a high-rise hotel you can still stay in a room on a low floor. So the height of the hotel shouldn't really matter, right? Just make sure you make it clear when you make your reservation that you need a low floor (specificy the highest you will be able to walk the stairs. 2nd, 3rd ?) Tell them it's for health reasons.

Granted in some hotels the lobby doesn't start at ground level so those you'd want to avoid.

Hotels generally won't guarantee that you will get a room on a low floor, but they will try to accommodate you.

If you might enjoy an apartment style hotel room, take a look at the suites at ChelseaLodge.com . They also have regular inn rooms that are less expensive, but very tiny and most have shared bathroom facilities. It's variable. The suites are in a Brownstone a couple of doors down from the main Inn.
