    I know a thread has already been posted here, but I am going to NYC in about two weeks only for a couple of days and need two things: where is the best place to stay hotel wise and if you only had a couple of days, what would you absolutely check out while in the city?

    Thanks for your help,

    Money is not an issue? So, I guess you don't actually work in journalism.

    How much is 'not an issue?' $700/night? $450?

    If money is truly no object, I'd stay at the Mandarin Oriental.

    Oh yeah, I should mention that I am looking for a place to stay within the Times Square/Manhattan Area.

    Affinia 50, half a block from the Waldorf-Astoria, is my pick.

    The W in Times Square. Great bar. And definitely see a B-way show...a big one...like Wicked or Lion King. And spend the money to rent a car/driver for 3 hours to take you anyplace you want. It's about $75/hour. Well worth it. Have fun!

    I heard about the W and a friend recommended it to me. I am going to look into it.

    Is the W the one with the bar overlooking Times Square? I had drinks in one of those hotel bars but don't remember which one.

    Like all great cities, NY is best seen by foot.

    Wherever you stay, the 2 best things you can do for free in NYC are take a Staten Island Ferry ride and spend a couple hours walking around Central Park.

    Central Park is part of my plans.
