We’re certain that the view from your room will inspire some exploration. In spite of St. Patrick’s Cathedral’s ongoing renovation and preservation, the building  is still a must see attraction during your stay at The Palace. The Cathedral was designed by architect James Renwick, Jr. and the cornerstone was placed in 1858. The imposing white marble structure was erected in the Gothic Revival style and encompasses an entire city block. Over time, the stone façade deteriorated and the stained glass windows lost their luster. Fortunately, over the course of three centuries, various generations have contributed to the architecture, bringing new life to the aging structure. Today, the impressive bronze doors at the entrance have been restored and stained glass windows first crafted in England, France and Boston are vibrant once more, inviting visitors to marvel at their beauty.

If entertainment is on your mind, our hotel is close to a number of interesting experiences including several Rockefeller Center Tours that speak to every interest. See the city from new heights at the Top of the Rock Observation Deck or experience the excitement of an NBC Studios Tour. Even Radio City Music Hall opens its doors, inviting guests to revel in the official theater of the Rockettes. Take a step inside this fabled New York City theater to marvel at incredible examples of art deco architecture and imagine yourself on one of the world’s most famous stages.

There’s a whole world waiting outside the window of your room at The Palace. Soak in the amazing Manhattan views, January 1 through March 31, 2015. The Elevate Your Experience package is offered for a limited time only. To take advantage of this special offer, reserve your stay by March 31, 2015.
