A moderately priced and family-friendly hotel on the Strip, New York-New York features the Big Apple’s most iconic symbols plus a roller coaster, Cirque show and plenty of affordable restaurant options.
Good value, family-friendly, a faux-urban version of New Yawk.
What we love:
The Village Street Eateries with all their neon sign splendor. Sure, it may be a glorified food court, but they put some serious effort into modeling it after a brownstone-clad neighborhood in Greenwich Village.
Also, you’re a hop, skip and a jump away from The Park, located between the hotel and Park MGM. The Park’s outdoor promenade features restaurants, trees and shade structures and the 40-foot-tall Bliss Dance statue. Catching a concert? The T-Mobile Arena is also a short walk away.
That subway rumbling you feel is actually the Big Apple Coaster barreling above the casino. This can pose a problem if you’re an early-to-bed/early-to-rise kind of person, so make sure to ask for a room that isn’t next to the roller coaster or it could be 11:00 to midnight before you get some peace and quiet. If you’re a real New Yorker, you won’t even notice the screaming.
Good to know:
Where do we begin with the parking? While it may seem easily accessible from the freeway, depending on the direction you’re coming from, you may have to go down to the Strip and pass the front of the property before you can even get to the parking garage.
Speaking of parking, guests will be charged $15 per day for self-parking and $24 per day for valet parking. Hourly self-parking and valet rates vary.
Also, all hotel rooms are non-smoking. If you light up, be prepared to pay a cleaning fee for rooms and a cleaning fee for suites upon checkout. Your best bet is to smoke in designated areas, like the hotel’s casino or bars.
