Three things New Yorkers expect at the start of a new year are broken resolutions, freezing weather and New York Restaurant Week. The third, at least, arrives dependably. Now in its 18th year, New York’s bi-annual blizzard of lunch and dinner bargains unfurls January 21 to February 9 with $26 two-course lunches and $42 three-course dinners […]

It’s cold outside. Dark, too. But an army of New York City hotels stands at the ready with an instant antidote to the gloom. Lights! Trees! Ornaments! Photo ops! Whether it’s in response to the drumbeat of turbulent news or just a reflexive urge to be hospitable, the city’s hotels seem especially merry and bright […]
We’re partial to holiday decorations displayed at New York City hotels. But this year we couldn’t resist including the edible art on view at the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, a spirited creation with an unexpected link to New York City.
We love hotel trade shows. For one November weekend, we slip into comfortable shoes, charge up our phone and head to Javits Center, where a pair of enormous shows previews the latest gadgets, accoutrements and surprises you’ll soon see in hotels (if you haven’t seen them already). While it’s fun to ogle industrial size kitchen […]
Where do you want to be when Astronaut Snoopy, Pikachu and Santa wend their way to Herald Square in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade? A nice warm hotel room with a room service breakfast and big clean windows overlooking the festivities sounds good to us. We found ten hotels with superb locations along the parade route, […]
For hotel lovers who double as foodies, Fall heralds the annual arrival of a new Michelin Guide for New York City restaurants. Sure enough, the 2020 version of the red-coated guide has landed, right on schedule. How did the city’s hotels do this time around? Not so great. Of the 76 restaurants tapped for one, […]
Even if you don’t set foot in the sprawling Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park between now and September 9, it’s easy to feel like you’re part of the U.S. Open if you know where to look. Hotels are a great place to start. The players have to say somewhere, after […]
Call it the ultimate trunk show. Stroll quickly through the lobby of the Sofitel New York, and you may think you’ve wandered into a Louis Vuitton showroom. But look closely at the array of travel trunks artfully parked atop side tables, tucked below the flower-filled console and stacked under a winding staircase, and it’s clear […]
On a recent visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, I chanced upon Georgia O’Keeffe’s panoramic painting from 1928 of the East River. A muted geometry of belching factory smokestacks and brackish water, it’s the elegant, if downbeat, work of an artist becoming visibly disillusioned with urban life, a good-bye-to-all-that rendering of the city she’d […]
As all you star gazers know, we’re deep into the Dog Days of Summer, the 20 days before and 20 days after Sirius, the dog star, aligns with the sun. Welcome to the sweatiest days of the year. But the heat-soaked Dog Days overlap with a more pleasant New York City ritual — New York […]
Overnight New York is the independent guide to New York City hotels with honest, unbiased reporting and no ties to the hotels we write about. We visit each hotel anonymously and always pay when we eat and stay. Think of Overnight New York as a best friend who susses out where you want to spend the night — and where you don’t — and tells you what’s new, what’s trending and where to meet for drinks after work, indulge in a romantic dinner or put up the in-laws.
