I made a 3 night reservation with points to go to Essex house. I've actually never been to NY except for a brief trip. My friend is mostly wanting to go for some Broadway shows, which is fine with me. I want to be delighted with my hotel pick even with points. I don't expect an upgrade, but maybe a view of some treetops of Central Park would be nice. I mostly want to walk to Broadway or take a cab and be able to enjoy some drinks in the lobby and return to a nice room. What do you think, have I made the right choice? Other hotel suggestions would also be welcomed.
