Bordering the museum to the east is Central Park, New York's 843-acre urban oasis. A 10-minute walk through the park leads to Bethesda Terrace and its famous fountain, crowned with an iconic bronze angel statue. A stone's throw away, you can rent rowboats and kayaks at Loeb Boathouse, which also houses a restaurant overlooking the park's 20-acre lake. Back on dry land, stroll 10 more minutes to the imposing Metropolitan Museum of Art to admire works from classical antiquity to the 21st century. Be sure to stop by the Met Store for a unique gift or souvenir.
After a day of sightseeing, return to a cozy guestroom with traditional decor and modern amenities including a flat-panel TV, complimentary wireless Internet access, and an MP3 clock radio. Each guestroom includes either a private or shared bathroom (rooms without private bathrooms have convenient in-room sinks). Just head downstairs to get your caffeine fix each morning with complimentary coffee and tea in the lobby.
