I was also planning a trip to NY with my wife this spring and looked at a lot of hotels. In the end something came up and we couldn't go but I remember the Doubletree on Lexington and 50something looked best to me.
I have another question for the natives, if in NY for a week or so where can I find Jets tickets? Are they all sold as season tickets or are some of them sold weekly? And approx. how much are they?
