  1. I’m a Viking newbie and I just want to thank everyone for the tips and suggestions!! I’ve read through all 38 pages over the last couple of months. Whew! We are SO looking forward to this cruise—but it’s not until October, 2020!
  2. Thanks, again, for the replies and suggestions. I certainly have my work cut out for me over the next couple of months. I’ll let you know what I decide. 😁
  3. I really appreciate all of your responses! I’ve been researching on the Marriott site and TripAdvisor. The Algonquin has gotten some mixed reviews in the past couple of months! That concerns me a little. Plus, it seems that if we stay on points, we can only get a queen room, which just won’t work for us. The Essex House is a possibility, although it takes more points. St. Regis is out of the running for us—WAY too many points. Does anyone have any thoughts on any of the Renaissance hotels? Either Times Square or Midtown? It seems there is a new REN opening in Chelsea next month, but how is that area for getting to the sites? We’d probably want to take in a Broadway play while we’re there, as well as do the 9/11 Museum and Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller, etc. Whew! My mind is spinning. But thank you all for your help!
  4. Thanks, all, for the quick replies. We have plenty of points to spend and can get breakfast in the Concierge Lounge if there is one. I looked at The Algonquin and liked it. We usually like the Autograph hotels. Keep those suggestions coming. We really know nothing about New York and are excited to spend some time there.
  5. We will be sailing from New York next year and arriving in the city a few days prior for sightseeing. Since we have many Marriott points to use, we will definitely be staying in one. I’d love to hear your recommendations for the best choice for us. We’re in our 60’s, active, and plan to walk/take the subway to many sights. Local friends told us to stay at the Marquis in Times Square, but now I’m not so sure. It seems to be pretty bustling all the time. Any suggestions? TIA.
