What is a serviced apartment?

When planning a business trip to an unfamiliar city, looking up nearby hotels is often our first point of call. This approach often ends in frustration, with a lack of available rooms being common – especially in New York – and many hotels being far from convenient in terms of geography or service. Contrastingly, serviced apartments offer an altogether different experience because our aparthotels in New York are designed to make life easier. Combining hotel services with the relaxation and privacy of an apartment, there is much a serviced apartment in New York has to offer:

·         A personal space. Unlike a hotel room which branches off a maze of busy hallways and service elevators, a serviced apartment is a completely private and separate space. With a kitchen area as standard, you can prepare food in peace if you need to work during the evening hours. Similarly, a private living area means relaxing or socialising is easily achieved after a busy day of corporate commitments.   

·         Optional luxuries. With a serviced apartment, you have the choice of taking advantage of a host of services. Many of our apartments come with luxury features, such as housekeeping services, on-site fitness suite, access to conference rooms, a concierge service and many more time saving luxuries.

What do I need to know about staying in New York?

With a population of over 8 million, New York is a thriving city renowned for its fast paced lifestyle and towering commercial districts. There is, therefore, a lot to know about the city that never sleeps before you arrive – from the best ways to get around to the best districts to head to for a meal with clients.

Transport

Home to the famous John F. Kennedy International Airport, New York is accessible to long distance travellers via three airports, including LaGuardia Airport (which mainly handles domestic flights) and Newark International Airport. The city is connected by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority which provides an inexpensive and efficient rail and bus service. New York is also famous for its fleets of yellow taxi cabs, which each travel – on average – 180 miles per shift.   

History

Originally a Dutch owned colony with a significant part to play in the fur trade, New York was named after the Duke of York when it was conquered by the British in the 17th century. In the years since, New York has developed over time to be a hugely significant city – with its presence impacting on cultures across the world. Today the city has a remarkably mixed population – no doubt due to its key involvement in the American Revolution and, later, the American Civil War. Cementing the city’s iconic image, the Statue of Liberty was presented by France as a symbol of unity following America’s successful unionisation and the eventual abolition of slavery.

What else is New York known for?

New York City is considered a fashion capital alongside cities like London and Paris, and as such hosts a variety of high end fashion stores including: Tom Ford, Lanvin, Alexander McQueen and Valentino to name but a few. Each year New York fashion week attracts the biggest names in the industry and is a booming time for local businesses. Similarly, the streets and skyline of New York are almost always being used as filming locations for big budget blockbuster films and television shows, meaning fame is never far away in the Big Apple.

A national economy

New York City is without doubt a global financial centre. With Wall Street, the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ all permanent features of the city, New York is a key trading city for both the USA and the wider Western world. Midtown Manhattan, meanwhile, is the largest central business district in the world. With key industries flourishing in the city, such as media, publishing, design and architecture, there is always business to be done in New York City.

Architectural landmarks

For decades New York has been famous for its incredible skyline. Monumental skyscrapers like the Empire State building continue to attract millions of visitors – incredibly still taking breaths away almost a century after construction. Keeping pace with modern architectural developments, New York City is also host to modern marvels of architecture, such as the One World Trade Centre, the Bank of America Tower and the One57 skyscraper. All of these staggering buildings can be appreciated by air on one of the many helicopter tours available across the city.
