A Manhattan Hotel near the Garden
Staying overnight in the city so the Brawny Sherpa and one of the youthful adventurers can attend a hockey game, we book a stay at the Stewart Hotel sheerly for its location. Sited less than a block away from Madison Square Garden, it serves as a convenient home base for our short stay in Manhattan. Just catty-corner from the entrance to Penn Station, and to the Garden behind it, the walk to the venue will be a short and easy one from the hotel.
While the hockey-goers watch the game, another of our youthful adventurers and I slip down to the restaurant in the building, Niles New York City, for a midweek dinner. The night is drizzly, so we’ve decided to remain onsite. We delight in the convenience of the place and in the red thai curry.
Afterward, we appreciate the waviness of the lobby as we make our way back upstairs. Our room is clean and attractive and has a kitchenette.
The next morning, still savoring the ease of the place, we head back to Niles for a reasonably priced breakfast—something of a rarity in Manhattan.
When you have to stay near the Garden, the Stewart Hotel is a viable option. We would stay there again.
