What’s Included

Direct flights to New York from Glasgow or Edinburgh

Stylish central 4* hotel

Great city break destination

Choice of departure dates

New York, New York, New York – forget what Frank says, they named this iconic city three times. It remains the consummate city break destination, packed with familiar sights even if you have never visited.

From the Statue of Liberty to Times Square, 53rd and 3rd to Greenwich Village, this is a metropolis rich with cultural landmarks. They say the shopping’s pretty good too.

Today’s Big Deal offers an irresistible trip to the city that never sleeps, with direct flights from Glasgow or Edinburgh and stylish 4* accommodation in the heart of the Apple.

Take Manhattan

The Big Deal, exclusive to 5pm customers, flies you direct to New York Newark airport with United Airlines and provides four nights room-only accommodation in a standard double at the 4* Wyndham New Yorker Hotel.

Hold luggage up to 23 kg per person is included, so there’s no excuse for skimping on souvenirs.

Flight dates

The city breaks are for four nights, flying out daily from Glasgow International or Edinburgh airports on the following dates:

12th, 13th (except Glasgow), 28th, 29th January 2017

5th, 6th, 7th, 19th, 20th, 26th February 2017

Possible additional departures on 4th, 21st and 24th February 2017.

Other airports may be available.

Jazz Age hotel

The 4-star Wyndham New Yorker dates from 1929, the age of speakeasies, Fitzgerald and all that jazz. It’s an impressive Art Deco edifice, steeped in New York history, with a timeless sense of style. Its red neon sign lights up the Manhattan skyline, always handy if you are a little lost.

Located in Midtown West which (the clue is in the name) is handily situated for the Theater District, Broadway, Times Square and the main shopping avenues of Manhattan, the hotel makes the perfect base for exploring the city.

It is also very near to Penn Station, offering direct links to Newark airport via the New Jersey Transit.

Guest rooms add a few touches of Art Deco elegance alongside modern facilities that include flat-screen TVs, spacious work desks, premium WiFi, in-room safe, an iron and ironing board, and a hair dryer.

There is a bar in the hotel, as well as the famous 24-hour Tick Tock Diner, a popular choice for a classic New York breakfast or all-American comfort food around the clock.

New York attractions

Whether hitting Fashion Avenue is your bag or a Broadway show hits all the right notes, New York is a cornucopia of entertainment. Cultural highlights include the Guggenheim and MOMA, while Central Park is the perfect place for people-watching.

Sometimes it can be worth just concentrating on a particular neighbourhood, the Meatpacking District, downtown Brooklyn or the Lower East Side, and soaking up the distinctive atmosphere of New York neighbourhoods.

Of course the city has every culinary delicacy under the sun, but don’t neglect the unpretentious city staples, Nathan’s hot dogs from Coney Island, pizza slices from street delis and the inimitable cheesecake.

The Wyndham New Yorker Hotel has been earning appreciative reviews for more than eight decades. Some of the more recent comments collected on TripAdvisor include the following:
