I am going to stay at Langham Place, New York, Fith Avenue. This tower rises halfway between Bryant Park and Empire State Building. The rooms feature Italian flair and have wood accents, marble bathrooms, free WiFi, flat-screen TVs and coffeemakers. Suites, all on upper floors, have kitchens and city views. The lounge serves casual food and drink, and the resturant offers Mediterranean-flavored fine dining. Other amenities include a luxury spa, 24 hour fitness center, and hair salon. We will need to pack clothes for two weeks, toiletrys, phone, and charger.
