NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 03/03/14 -- The Empire State Building, Times Square and the Brooklyn Bridge are certainly symbols of New York City, but there is perhaps no more dramatic or iconic one than that of Lady Liberty. With a little advanced planning, and a stay nearby, at the New York Marriott Downtown, the hotel has a special offer to help visitors to start thinking ahead.
The Statue of Liberty, gifted to the United States by France as a token of friendship, is one of the world's most popular tourist attractions. Visits to this popular destination in New York Harbor require a little planning and it is recommended to purchase tickets in advance. Three types of tickets are available, offering various levels of access to the grounds, to the pedestal and to the crown of the statue. Crown tickets are only available through advanced purchase.
Those who are happy to admire the statue from afar can reserve one of the rooms at this NYC Wall Street hotel with direct views. These desirable accommodations also feature luxury bedding, room service, an iPod dock, flat-screen TV and high-speed Internet access.
The hotel is also close to other major attractions. Visitors should book ahead if they plan to stop at the 9/11 Memorial. While admission is free, reservations are required beforehand and can be made online or over the phone. A limited number of spots are open for same-day visits. Those who prefer to see where the day leads can start with a walk around Battery Park and Wall Street, followed by a stroll over the Brooklyn Bridge. Those with energy to spare can make their way up through Chinatown and Little Italy before a little window-shopping in SoHo. A day of sightseeing is sure to work up an appetite, and guests can enjoy burgers, fries and milkshakes back at the hotel at Bill's Bar & Burger.
Planning ahead isn't only smart when it comes to visiting famous attractions; it can also help get a great deal at this Statue of Liberty NY hotel. With its Advance Purchase Rate offer, guests can save up to 10% on their room rate when they book 3 to 21 days in advance. Available through April 30, 2014, the offer features rates as low as $139 a night. Please note this offer does not include attraction tickets.

IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...
