Voyage to New York City and a stay at the Quin
Stop 3: New York City
So knocked out Rochester, MN, Hershey, PA, and now onto New York City. Instead of paying $1000 for flights an hour away from Harrisburg, PA we opted to rent a car and drive into La Guardia airport and Uber into Upper East Side Manhattan. I used the app “Hotel Tonight” to find a good rate on a 5 star hotel which happened to be one of the best hotel stays I’ve ever experienced. But first, the drive to NYC and a few pictures of the Pennsylvania country side and a quick stop in the German town of Hamburg, PA.
Check out some Hamburgness.
New York City
Uber Blacked It into New York City, cost about $130 but was a brand new burban. Here is some of the first shots I got while riding through. We took the Lincoln tunnel which passed over the Jersey/NYC line.
The Quin Hotel (5 Star)
Have you ever seen Home Alone where he goes into a 5 star hotel and opens up cabinets filled with candy and goods and booze? Well this is probably one of the best hotel stays of my life and for an unbeatable price.
Got a free upgrade to Junior Suite for only $249 for the night, the front desk was the most professional hotel employee I’ve ever met. The lobby is beautiful and decorated with custom art, Christmas trees and they had free champagne to taste before you went up to your room.
Stayed on a floor that had art work outside the elevator. The decorations in the hallway was beautiful and our room even had a video door bell. The room smelt clean, fresh, and was very spacious for a 5 star hotel in New York City. I’ll go quick since I could spend all day talking about this room. The bathroom was epic with a nightlight built into the mirror, the bed was Sferra and the most comfortable bed/sheets I’ve ever slept in. The blinds, mirrors, lights, can all be controlled bedside with the push of a button. We had a 50″ flat screen TV, Nespresso machine that made some damn good espresso and the cabinets filled with candy, candy button, jars full of different nuts, as well as a booze filled fridge.
For the price and location of this hotel this is truly 5 star, right in the middle of the action, near Central Park, quick walk to Rockefeller Plaza and more. I forgot my iPad in the room and they even shipped it right back to my house! Anytime I’m in NYC I will be sure to stay at the Quin. Also Free Wifi!
A night in New York City
I’ll just post photos of our journey in New York City for one night. We ended up taking a uber, a russian bike taxi, a journey to Rockefeller Plaza and ended up in Times Square. Hitting up Toys R’ Us, Sanrio, Hard Rock Restaurant, and many other spots.
The next day…
Well thanks for checking out my NYC journey now let’s fly to Cleveland, Ohio!
