All about Overnight New York
Overnight New York covers everything relating to hotels in New York City -- news, deals, reviews and the culture swirling around them.
The best hotels entertain you the moment you enter. Contemporary art, big comfy lounges, midnight bingo and movies in the screening room are a sampling of what's on offer around town.
Stay for the night, and a great hotel multi-functions at a dizzying level. Yes, you want a comfortable room, preferably with some style and a convenient location at a price that won’t result in bankruptcy.
But what we love about hotels is the opportunity try on a new life. Choose with care, and you can feel like a rock star or a start-up star, a president or a princess, if only for a night.
Overnight New York is completely independent with no ties to the hotels you see on this site. Its creator Terry Trucco is a long-time travel writer whose stories and hotel reviews have appeared in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Travel & Leisure and other publications.
We visit hotels anonymously and always pay when we eat and stay. Our reporting is honest and unbiased.
Think of Overnight New York as a best friend who knows the city and susses out where you’d like to stay -- and where you want to avoid -- as well as the perfect hotel for a romantic dinner, drinks after work or putting up the in-laws.
