Underwhelmed by a stay at the Sheraton NY Times Square. Better choices in NYC around the same price point?

First of all, NEVER stay near Times Square. That's a rookie move. Second, try the Westin on 42nd.

westin on 42nd gets expensive though, so may be out of your price range. marriott vacation club pulse is ok, sheraton tribeca is ok (don’t eat at the restaurant). those are my 2 budget-oriented picks i can usually get for around your price point. have also been interested to stay at the moxy chelsea as it’s new, but also is sometimes expensive and is known for having small rooms.

Agreed!

New Le Merdian is now open and same point category. Former Viceroy and it’s a steal at Cat 5

what did you pay this week on a per night avg?

Can pay 350 max (incl tax). I also get corporate rates

Sheraton NY Times Square is decent if you need to pay by points to visit. If you have status, they’ve been pretty good about suite upgrades and such. But I wouldn’t stay there for work

Renaissance times square is better or Marriott Marquis if you are looking in that area

Hilton on 54st is much nicer

I’ve been in consulting just under a year. I came from a tech company and implement their technology. I hate delivery and it’s showing… I can’t find a role I enjoy.

Should I try to move within my company, go back to tech, or join another consulting firm in a different capacity?
