  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

While plenty of New York restaurants have lately made the environment a priority—sourcing their ingredients locally and crafting dining rooms from salvaged materials—none have done so with quite as much visual and gastronomic panache as chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s new ABC Kitchen. The

I'll be arriving in New York in may. It's my first time visiting NYC and I was thinking to stay either at Hilton or Intercontinental. They're both really nice and in my price range. I'm inclined to go to Hilton just so I won't have any surprises. Wouldn't mind to see Emma Stone at the Cabaret also.

We will be heading to New York next month. It will be a very fun trip. However, we have no idea where to stay. Thanks for posting the prices of the hotels there. We are going to try and save as much money as we can. Finding a cheaper hotel would be ideal for us. http://www.cbvipg.com/
