There is no dearth of hotels in the Big Apple. We've selected a few that offer amenities of interest to the sophisticated traveler who exercises regularly or loves being pampered. The hotels here all offer great fitness or spa facilities, luxury accommodations, and excellent service. We are offering you facts like pool length because we hate the disappointment of a dipping pool when we planned on swimming laps. Location matters, too: we'll tell you which hotels make it easy to get to a run or leisurely meander through Central Park. We offer trainers in that category who can show you the trails and help you pick up your pace.
Little Italy really is little. The area is a string of Italian groceries, restaurants, and cafes that run the five blocks between Canal and Spring Streets on Mulberry and Mott Streets. Her sidewalks are packed with happily gesticulating and laughing people. Cross the street heading south and hello Chinatown; step west and you are in Soho. Visit Little Italy to eat. Visit DiPalo’s at Mott and Grand to take a little Italian fare home with you. The Festival of San Gennaro is held in Little Italy at the end of September. If you’re in town, visit then.
