Traveling while on business can be one of the most stressful experiences a business person can go through. Not only do you have to conduct business without access to your office and familiar environment, you have to get used to a whole new transport system and find somewhere to stay. Do you go to a tourist hotel, a luxury hotel, a motel?
Well worry no more, we have gathered together the best hotels to visit while in New York on business as recommended by people who have stayed in them!
Travelers doing business Downtown who still want to experience the best food, shopping, and nightlife the city has to offer should look towards Williamsburg. The Williamsburg Hotel is centrally-located and walking distance from the neighborhood’s trendiest spots. Explore Brooklyn’s foodie hub and experience some of NYC’s best culinary offerings. Or borrow some of the complimentary bikes that the hotel keeps on hand and get familiar with the area. A destination of its own, the hotel’s Harvey Restaurant (and soon-to-open rooftop pool and bar) serves creative small plates as well as weekend brunches and high teas. At The Williamsburg Hotel, guests greet the day head-on from beautiful rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows, minutes from the iconic skyline on display from their bed.

I've enjoyed stays at the Millennium Hilton New York Downtown in the Financial District for business in March 2017 and March 2018. The hotel is conveniently located close to our meetings near Wall Street and also near the World Trade Center complex. My colleague and I arrived earlier than the rest of our party and were able to visit One World Trade Center Observatory and the National September 11 Museum and Memorial, which were both just a few minutes from the hotel. The guest rooms are comfortable, but the highlight is the view of One World Trade and the Oculus. Century 21 offers great shopping across the street, and Eataly is one of my favorite dining options in NYC. Also, the Millennium Hilton offers an indoor pool, gym and business center.

I go to New York often on business as well as on leisure as I have family there and I personally also spent 20 years living there in the past.
My favorite hotel to stay in when I go to New York is the Residence Inn New York Manhattan/Times Square. It's actually not in Times Square rather in Bryant Park which is a very charming park and away from the touristy trap of Times Square. Personally, I would never stay in Times Square as it's too many people and too crowded so if you are going to a meeting in rush rush hour or lunch during the afternoon you have to navigate through the crowded streets full of tourists, mickey mouse and Iron Man costume hustlers. pan handlers and the hoards of people selling hop on hop off tours to tourists.
Staying in Bryant Park you get a lot less of the madness of Times Square yet having a really charming Park right by to read a book or grab lunch and enjoy the park benches. If you are going in the Summer then there is free Cinema in the park playing old school black and white films.
Staying in the Residence inn by Bryant Park also means you are walking distance to Times Square, Broadway, Macys, Herald Square, Madison Square Park and the Flat Iron District and most of all you are 20 steps away from the 42nd Street Bryant Park B and D train Subway lines. You're also a 5 min walk away from Grand Central Station on 42nd Street.
After the location, let's talk about the hotel. The rooms are bigger for New York standards than other hotels because the concept is kitchenette. So, you'll have your own sink and fridge for all those left over food at the thousands of restaurants nearby.
The hotel includes free breakfast although it gets quite crowded there. No matter though as there are famous New York City bagels near by and plenty of New York food carts. The hotel doesn't have a pool or rooftop, but you don't go to New York for a pool anyway. For a rooftop you can go to nearby 230 Fifth Rooftop bar which is one the best in the city with views of Empire State Building.
Viceroy Central Park, located at the fusion of business and leisure on West 57th between 6th and 7th Avenue, Viceroy Central Park is a luxury boutique hotel perfect for business travelers, with its combination of corporate uptown Manhattan with a downtown-cool aesthetic. Viceroy Central Park offers business travelers a handful of benefits, including saving up to 30% each time someone stays.

A favorite of New York City enthusiasts because of the location, amenities, serenity and comfort of the rooms. The ultra modern decor features natural wood elements.
Sleep like a king or queen. The giant mattresses are so comfortable you won't want to leave the room to go see the city! Maybe that's why there is a cozy bed right up against the window - a beautiful place to enjoy the view or curl up with a book and a cup of their amazingly good coffee and espresso.
There is one problem, though. It's not easy to get a room here. Book in advance, or maybe you'll get lucky.
