Favorite SPG property in NewYork?

Plz explain why you want to stay in/near Times Square. Even if my client's office were in Times Square, I wouldn't stay in Times Square.

like

The SPG options close to Times Square aren't the best. I usually do the Sheraton or the Westin out of necessity. If you have status on SPG, link it to Marriott and stay at the Marriott Marquis.

like

Save yourself the week of experiencing how shitty the Sheraton is. Westin grand central can be a little more of a hike but worth it (much more than the Westin Times Square)

W in Times Square makes me claustrophobic and tight spaces aren't a usually a problem for me

What's your budget?

like

Maybe W Union Square? Union Square itself is a little much, but the hotel is nice, SUPER easy to get to Times Square via the subway, and being downtown gives you much better options for dinner and activities after work.

like

Again Union Square itself is not my fave, but you can easily walk just a couple of blocks and be out of it. So close to many great neighborhoods East Village, Greenwhich Village, West Village, Flatiron, Chelsea, etc.

Not the Long Island City Aloft, that place was terrible. I've had closets bigger than my room there.

St Regis

Pretty open ended question...St Regis if you want the best of the best.

Not including st Regis, looking for something close to times square

How about the W in times square?

W isn't too great, really just avoid Times Square. If you have to stay in Times Square take the W though

Same with the w on Lex. Rooms are always tiny.

Le Meridien is only good if you are serious about working out, the actual hotel rooms are trash.

Fair enough... so what's a good option close to times square?

Hotel Americano is pretty interesting! Just got added to the SPG portfolio

Anything under 500 per night

What if I'm open to Marriott properties since I have platinum on both. Any Marriott properties that are better than spg and worth not getting spg points?

We had new neighbors move in across the street a few months ago. A couple with a child of about 7 years old who clearly has a cognitive disability of some sort (I suspect autism). I’m becoming concerned about him. He seems to spend a good amount of time alone outdoors. He often flags down passers by to chat. I thought perhaps his parents kept an eye on him through the window, but today he was hanging on a neighbor’s front stoop for a good half hour. I went over to talk to him and see if (con’t)

I’ve been at a startup for a month now. I’m pretty certain my co-manager has been purposely withholding information from me when I ask for clarity on a process or general company information. Other than that, I like my role and company so far. What’s the best way to approach a situation like this? Pretty certain it’s because of insecurity and wanting to look better but I really am not a fan of these antics and it makes me question how long I want to stay here.

This may be just a naive/dumb question, but how do you relax when you’ve got a really stressful file?

Any insight on what everyone else does?
