I didn’t expect to be back here so soon, but friends, Jan and Brian, called late last week to say they had four tickets to the David Letterman show for this Wednesday, and did we want to come along? Silly question! Hopped on to the Expedia website and found a reasonable air and room package.
We flew out this afternoon, and arrived in Manhattan around 8pm. We’re staying at a lovely hotel near Times Square and Central Park – The Westhouse Hotel. It appears to have been recently renovated, with spacious rooms and comfortable beds. The hotel package includes breakfast, afternoon tea and evening cocktails.
Our room has a view of Times Square. This was not our first room, by the way. When we unlocked the door to the first room, we were greeted by a couple already in bed. Quickly shut the door, and then started laughing. Mark wanted to know what the room looked like, but I was only interested in getting out of there as quickly as possible. Staff was very apologetic, and gave us a complimentary upgrade, which accounts for the lovely view.
