For a luxury getaway, what hotel is best on the Upper West side of Manhattan?

Taking a Bite of the Big Apple

As a travel destination, New York City has something for everyone. Sure, it is over-the-top big, congested and noisy. It is also a feast of fascinating cultures, cuisines, couture and characters. Maybe that's why New York City is one of the World's Best Cities according to Travel & Leisure and Condé Nast Traveler. In addition to all-time favorite museums and attractions, from the hottest new Broadway show to the hippest new restaurants, there is also always something going on in New York.

When a New York getaway is in your travel plans, it important to choose the best hotel as a base for taking a bite of the Big Apple. Upper West Side hotels offer the best access to Central Park, gourmet dining, major museums and Lincoln Center. This location also escapes hoards of tourists tramping around chaotic Times Square; yet it is still within easy reach of the theater district, business district and midtown attractions. For sophisticated travelers, The Trump International Hotel & Tower is a 5-star luxury hotel in New York City that raises the bar on Upper West side luxury with stunning views of the New York skyline and Central Park and a dazzling array of amenities. As a member of the prestigious Leading Hotels of the World collection of 5-star luxury hotels and resorts, business and leisure travelers know that their expectations will be met and exceeded at this Condé Nast 2007 Gold List hotel.

In a city where even luxury hotel rooms tend to be small and the bath even smaller, Trump International Hotel guest rooms and suites are impressively spacious with the personal touches like those found in a luxury private home. Look for European-style kitchens in most rooms complete with fine china and crystal. Enjoy an entertainment center with plasma TV, DVD, CD and surprises like a telescope, fresh flowers, coffees, sweet treats and a selection of newspapers. Marble bathrooms in most rooms feature Jacuzzi tubs, cozy bathrobes and deluxe bath products. At night, sink into plush bedding with high-count Italian linens and down pillows. And, staying in touch is easy with a two-line cordless telephone with complimentary local calls and wireless Internet connection.

When it comes to dining, Jean Georges is one of New York's favorite restaurants. After a day in the city, unwind at the cutting-edge health and fitness and spa. And, the Trump International Clefs d'Or concierge has all the connections for those hard-to-get tickets and dinner reservations.
