New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractions—and enough personality—to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
The New York Palace will have completed a $140 million redesign come fall 2013. The renovation transformed the property’s premier rooms and suites in The Towers (a 55-story hotel-within-a-hotel), the lobby spaces, specialty suites and added six new restaurants and bars—two helmed by renowned chef Michel Richard. With 822 rooms and 87 suites, The Palace is known for unparalleled splendor, spectacular views, spacious rooms and exquisite service. Located across the street from St. Patrick’s Cathedral and steps from Rockefeller Center—the hotel’s world-renowned courtyard incorporates motifs from several 15th-century Italian cathedrals and has served as the entranceway to the historic Villard Mansion since 1882.
