My wife and I came to New York for two days/one night stay both to enjoy a short relaxing getaway to NYC for leisure/relaxation, but also to take care of getting our Brazil visa in-person from the nearest consulate to where we live in PA (long story short, we did not have time to mail away our passports to have this taken care of by-mail). I researched the hotels within a few blocks of where the Brazilian consulate building was located at Ave of the Americas and 47th Street, and appeared to be the best valued hotel with a 4-5 star rating. When we are in Manhattan, we usually stay at the Michelangelo Hotel which is our favorite NYC hotel, but for this particular trip we wanted to be very close to the Brazil consulate so that the next AM we could be early in line to apply for our Brazil visa in-person. Also, we did not want to fork over the $ this time, for this quick trip. Our Muse Hotel room was tastefully appointed in a somewhat hip Greek moderne style, comfortable with a nice bathroom with good fixtures, and surprised us pleasantly with a roomy balcony that overlooked some Manhattan skyline, with some of the Times Square lighted dynamic billbpards visible in the distance! We lounged for a bit on some deck chairs on that balcony that evening we arrived, and it was very pleasant as a cool breeze was blowing at that time. I do not think that many of their rooms have balconies, so if one is desired then I would ask for a balcony room when booking. In sum, I would definitely stay at the Muse Hotel again if it suited me location-wise on my next trip to Manhattan, and if the price is right (which it was, on our recent trip there).
