As far as romantic getaways are concerned, it’s important to choose your holiday destination wisely in order to set the scene for those all-important candlelit dinners and walks in the park. New York City has long been recognised as an exceptional holiday destination for couples, and there doesn’t seem to be a rival city to knock it from its pedestal any time soon. With many late deal holidays available to the Big Apple, there is no excuse not to make New York your next city break.
The number of boutique hotels in New York is unrivalled by any other city. Hotels such as the Gramercy Park Hotel, situated in the heart of Manhattan, offers unparalleled luxury to couples who want to get away from the stresses and responsibilities of everyday life and enjoy each other’s company. When you check in to the Gramercy, you’re immediately aware that you’re somewhere special. Every one of the 185 rooms is individually styled and designed, decorated in a sophisticated Renaissance colour palette with original artwork from the likes of Andy Warhol and Damien Hirst adorning the walls. And should you care to leave the four walls of your exquisitely designed hotel room, make sure you check out one of the hotel’s two decadent bars, where you can relax over a cocktail or two before heading out into the greatest American city at night.
Of course, your perfect New York break won‘t begin and end in your hotel room, nor in your hotel bar. The city has a lot to offer a loved up twosome who want to spend some quality time together. One of the most iconic attractions of Manhattan is of course Central Park. Couples can walk hand in hand across this huge expanse of green or even book a horse drawn carriage to escort you around the park in style. Central Park also has a zoo where you can see animals from polar bears to exotic butterflies.
No trip to New York would be complete without picking up souvenirs to remind you of your time in the Big Apple. Fortunately for you, there is no better shopping destination in the world than New York City. Get lost in Bloomingdales as you scour the aisles for designer clothes and jewellery, and be sure to visit the Manolo Blahnik store where Carrie Bradshaw of the Sex and The City television series picks up her much coveted stiletto shoes. Perhaps the romantic atmosphere of New York City will even tempt you to splurge on an engagement ring?
New York holidays no longer price out the ordinary British holiday maker, and many reasonable last minute deals can be sourced to suit every budget. Holidays to New York are in fact becoming so reasonable that many people choose to fly across the pond for a long weekend break. Experience all of the glamour and sophistication of New York without the expensive price tag and book your next city break today.
