A. Your hotel is located in one of the most convenient and central parts of New York City- the Upper West Side. You are only around a mile away from Times Square. And from the hotel you can walk to Central Park, only a few blocks away to the east.
Depending on how much you like to walk, you can stroll over to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Or you can take a short bus ride or a take taxi trip.
You are also fairly close to other notable New York museums such as the Guggenheim Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Frick Collection, the New Museum and several others. These are all within a mile or so walking distance from your hotel.
The Metropolitan Museum is around 1.5 miles away, through Central Park on foot.
But make sure you check the opening hours of the museums before going.
If you do not want to walk, all these places can be easily reached by public transportation. There is a subway stop within 2 minutes walking distance of the hotel.
Once you get on the subway you can easily travel to any part of the city. You could even take a train to Coney Island and walk on the boardwalk along the ocean. It would take around an hour by subway train.
The subways run 24 hours a day and are very safe. See separate info on the subways below.
