I’ve always said that I’d love to go to New York when I turned 21 and fortunately that time came in 2015! My boyfriend at the time turned 21 in December 2014 and me a few months later in May so we said we would go together for our birthdays! Our trip was from 28.05.2015 – 04.06.2015 and I can honestly say it was one of the best weeks of my life!
Place we stayed: The Wyndham New Yorker
Really nice hotel situated in Midtown Manhattan so we were really central and not too far from everything (by taking the Subway). Staff were really helpful and patient as our flight was delayed which would delay our check-in time but this was not a problem as I had notified staff and everything was organised for when we would arrive. The price was a little expensive but it was one of the cheapest we had come across in our searches for somewhere to stay, but do be prepared to spend money if you are planning on staying for any length of time in NYC. (I’ve added the link in above)
