NYC Turns The Heat Up A Notch With A Medley Of Summer Festivals

With nyma, the new york manhattan hotel 

It may be a year-round hot-spot for visitors, with endless nightlife and miles of shopping opportunities, but New York steps it up a notch in the summer, offering the pinnacle of cultural, culinary and musical events for those wanting to lap up everything the city has to offer - and showcasing its green parks and al fresco waterfront restaurants at their best.

Situated in the heart of the Big Apple, nyma, the new york manhattan hotel offers the ideal base for a summer stay, whether guests are wanting to sample the East Coast’s tastiest treats at the Ninth Avenue International Food Festival (19 and 20 June), absorb cut-price culture, art and history at The Museum Mile Festival (12 June), or enjoy the city’s eclectic music festival, the Central Park SummerStage

The summer-long Central Park SummerStage festival offers numerous open-air dance, spoken word and music events from June onwards, many of which are free. All you need is a picnic and a blanket! And, with household names such as Norah Jones and Foster The People booked to perform, summer in New York is set to sound harmonious indeed!

However, for those wanting to keep it simple, the epitome of American culture and a key date in every New Yorker’s calendar is Independence Day (4 July).  New York hosts a truly impressive Fourth of July fireworks display, which is set off perfectly by a clear, summer night.  Head to one of New York’s rooftop bars or the High Line on Manhattan’s West Side, for a panoramic, unobstructed view!

Located just four blocks from the High Line, and not far from Central Park, the re-launched, nyma, the new york manhattan hotel offers cheap and chic accommodation for couples, friends and families. What’s more, the hotel provides a whole host of FREE amenities for savvy travellers, including complimentary continental breakfast, wi-fi and phone calls nationwide.

Room rates at this budget-friendly hotel start from US$184.99 per night in June and July (approx. £58 per person based on two sharing). To book, please call freephone 0808 178 6363 or visit Flights and accommodation taxes excluded.
