If anyone deserves a comfy bed and a welcoming room after a grueling day at work, it’s the doctors, nurses and other medical personnel caring for Covid-19 patients at New York City hospitals. The deadly virus has also created a need for facilities for non-critical patients and personnel. Enter the hospitality industry, newly awash in […]
Touring is a big part of the job for members of Ailey II, the ebullient company of next generation modern dancers affiliated with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Tuskegee, Alabama; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and Bonn, Germany are just a few of the 13 international cities the 12-person troupe has visited already this year. So we […]
I knew the Luxe Life Hotel looked familiar the moment I saw the gilded cupid perched beneath the word LIFE (also gilded) over the front door. I reviewed the property for The New York Times in 1991 when it was the Herald Square Hotel, a two-star budget hotel housed inexplicably in the Beaux Arts brick-and-limestone building […]
The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show breezes into town this weekend. For dog enthusiasts, this is New York at its tail-wagging best. For four days, the world’s top dogs are unleashed in Midtown Manhattan. Look for them at the warm-up events at the cavernous Pier 94 February 8, 9 and 10th and at Madison Square […]
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 […]

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, […]
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.
