New York: The Top Luxury Hotels in Manhattan

New York is one of my favourite cities. It has an energy that no other city has. Christmas is a great time to visit this great metropolis; even if it's just to buy Christmas presents, to walk along Fifth Avenue and Soho or even to ice skate in front of the Rockefeller Centre, near the famous Christmas tree.

This time of year you need to stay in a hotel located between Fifth Avenue and Central Park in order to feel that festive atmosphere to the maximum; with Christmas trees, lights, garlands and beautifully decorated shop windows. This is my choice of the most luxurious places in Manhattan in which to bathe in luxury, and enjoy the Christmas mood of this unique city.
