Location

The Omni Berkshire Place Hotel located on Madison Avenue puts you close to all the attractions New York City has to offer.  From the hotel’s Midtown Manhattan location you’ll find a wide variety of shopping selections right outside the front door.  The hotel is within walking distance of Broadway, Fifth Avenue, Park Avenue and Rockefeller Center.  It’s also convenient to St. Patrick’s Cathedral,  Times Square, Central Park, Manhattan restaurants, tours and world famous museums.

Midtown Manhattan can be noisy, but since Omni Berkshire Place is located on the east side, you’re more likely to sleep (should you choose to do so) at night – things over there are quieter than they are on the west side. The hotel’s Midtown location is a great jumping off point; it’s just a few blocks away from the 6 train, which runs up and down the East Side – trips down to the Financial District to check out Wall Street  are a cinch, as are subway rides down to Union Square and the East Village to check out the artsier areas of the city. Looking to visit the large landmarks? You’re not far from the Empire State Building, nor the New York Public Library or Bryant Park. Grand Central is an architectural marvel; be sure to check it out even if you’re not traveling by train. No matter where you want to go, the Omni Berkshire Place is a great starting point.
