NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 08/27/14 -- Much has been made of New York's loveliness in autumn, but the truth is this is a city that offers year-round appeal. And the Courtyard New York Manhattan/Chelsea is making the time between now and Labor Day one of the most exciting for travelers who want the New York experience without the New York price tag. Offering an action-packed Best of NYC package and a convenient location among hotels near Penn Station, this property is poised to give visitors one unforgettable taste of the Big Apple.
The beauty of the Best of NYC package may just lie in its versatility. Guests receive two NYC Explorer passes with their choice of three out of more than 59 attractions. With the help of a handy, pocket-sized guidebook detailing nearby landmarks and museums, guests can craft the vacation of their choice. Feel like seeing the iconic Statue of Liberty and Empire State Building? This package can make it happen. Want to immerse yourself in culture? Then cruise through the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum and, just 15 minutes away from this hotel near Penn Station, Broadway theaters. And of course shopping, restaurants, Central Park and more are all just minutes away, too.
The package also includes breakfast for two so that guests get started on the right foot. And tourists can pack in even more sightseeing with the package, thanks to the passes' VIP status, which affords line privileges and dining discounts at select locations.
NYC isn't just for grown-ups, though. Families who want to introduce their kids to the thrills of Manhattan can book the family package, which includes all of the above plus two child NYC Explorer passes and breakfast for two children.
While Manhattan may be chockfull of attractions, being on vacation means doing whatever one wants to do, even if that's just watching football. Luckily for those staying in these guest rooms and suites near Madison Square Garden, the hotel makes sure guests never have to miss a game. Visitors can take advantage of the numerous football stadiums and sports bars nearby to get into the spirit of things, or they can enjoy the game within the privacy of the hotel's stylish, high-tech lobby.
The property's football-friendly features resonate with the Courtyard brand at large. After all, Courtyard by Marriott recently entered a partnership with the National Football League to serve as its exclusive lodging category sponsor.
Rates for the Best of NYC package start at $349 per night. Children must be 12 or younger for the family package. Travelers should use the promotional code CUE when making reservations.

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...
