Holidays in NYC
We were only here overnight but the room was very nice (a 1 bedroom suite) and we were able to leave our bags with the bellman when we checked out early to go over to Rockefeller Center. A little farther away than I'd like to be walking in a snow storm but they can't control the weather!
