About Clarion Hotel Park Avenue
Located on the cusp of Gramercy Park, Kips Bay and Midtown, the Clarion Hotel Park Avenue is all about location, location, location. It’s only one short block from the 6 train, and within easy walking distance to attractions like the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, and leafy Madison Square Park, with its irresistible Shake Shack and attendant lines of hungry burger fans.
Speaking of food, Les Halles, the brasserie where Anthony Bourdain rose to fame, is one block south of the Clarion. A few more blocks south and to the west and you're at Mario Batali’s Eataly, a super-bazaar of everything edible and Italian. A block east of the Clarion Hotel is Little India, where some of the most reasonable (and authentic) Indian food this side of Bangalore can be found. Grand Central Terminal, with its Apple store, constellation-emblazoned ceiling, eclectic food court and innumerable transit options, is just a 15-minute walk north.
This mid-sized hotel is a pocketbook-pleaser with a complimentary continental breakfast, including items like waffles, offered daily. All of the basic rooms are very clean, and all have flat-screen TVs, cable, Wi-Fi and comfortable beds. The hotel’s lobby features richly upholstered sofas and chairs, where guests can wait for a friend or peruse their complimentary copies of USA Today. In colder weather, visitors can cozy up to the fireplace with a cup of coffee or cocoa.
Did you know?
On May 5, 1959, the City renamed the stretch of Fourth Avenue that ran from 17th to 32nd Streets, the much tonier Park Avenue South.
West 28th Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues is still a jungle of green in the morning, as the last vestiges of a once-vibrant flower district fill the sidewalks with every manner of lush greenery. Go early – the markets open around 5am and close mid-afternoon.
The extremely convenient location makes the Clarion Park Avenue Hotel a sound choice for independent business travelers (there is a one-person-at-a-time-sized business center, fax and Wi-Fi, but no conference rooms). Tourists seeking a less congested alternative to Times Square or easy access to anywhere on the east side may also find the Clarion Hotel a smart option.
