This was on my Bucket List. Most years, watching the fans all huddled together to either stay warm or dry or both, I think, “Maybe not!”. So, you can imagine our excitement when some friends, in December mind you, invite us to join them and watch the parade from their hotel suite overlooking the parade route. I mean, it was an immediate Yes! We booked our own hotel near Times Square and air and sit on our thumbs for the next eleven months awaiting the day.
Our friend’s suite was in the Warwick Hotel at 54th and 6th. This is a little above our price range (ok, a lot above our price range), so we chose the Novotel nearby at 52nd and Broadway, just down the street from Times Square. Turns out, we really liked the Novotel for price and location. It was very modern and a little quirky but also had an outdoor terrace looking down Broadway just a few blocks from Times Square. We highly recommend the Novotel.
