W union square. Don’t book anything close to times square

Actually OP just call SPG and tell them you're doing something nice for family and they will help you find the best options for the points you have.

Convent points to Marriott and book one of those. My 20 seconds of research looks like you will get more for your points in NYC with Marriott

St Regis NYC is awesome but more expensive. Mid range would say W Union Square or Chatwal. Suspect post on Marriott is right though not sure there’s a really nice Marriott. Note - depending on time of year you can almost do better just buying the rooms. A lot of properties in Jan/Feb go down under $200 a night so 20k points not worth it.

like

Sheraton Times Square. A little above TS so not directly in the chaos. Close to Central Park. The property is nice but the lounge food is disappointing

like

If you can up to 30k points - do St. Regis and throw in a suite night if you've got them. Otherwise I think your only options should be 1) w Union square, 2) chatwal, 3) w Lexington. Definite no to anything in times square, that's just calling for hell

So what hotels do you recommend if I use about 20-25k points

for how many nights? 20-25k points might only cover for one night

One night

St. Regis, W Times Sq, Chatwal (maybe?) ...check points on SPG app

^ That's if you're going for a higher end experience. If just proximity to shows and restaurants you could go with a Westin or aloft

If you’re on limited points, check out the Courtyard Central Park. It’s in a nice new high rise and much better than any other Courtyard you’ve ever stayed at.

The Renaissance Midtown is great. It is ~ 2 years old. It’s on W35th so convenient to shows and Times Square but not in the heart of Times Square.

The Parker Meridien is quite good. The rooms are just ok (although better than most W) but the rooftop pool has big wow-factor
