A NYC Highlight — Grand Central Station
New York’s famed Grand Central Station is more than just a busy train station; it’s one of the most attractive and unforgettable tourist destinations in the city. Our hotel is located less than 2 miles from the historic majesty of Grand Central Terminal, which is the world's largest railway station and the busiest station in the country. Grand Central Terminal is where 60 railroad tracks meet to take you anywhere in the country, though it also includes a subway connection that leads to the rest of the city. Renovations completed in 1998 restored the building to its original 1913 splendor with state-of-the-art upgrades. The building features a world-famous beaux-arts facade with towering statues of Greek gods and goddesses and a four-faced clock at the central information kiosk. Be sure to join the Municipal Arts Society for a free architectural tour, which takes place every Wednesday and Friday at 12:30 p.m.
