Top tips for top prize destination: NYC

Posted: July 2023

Senior account manager Ellen has been at NDL now for 4 years and one thing is for sure, she loves a holiday. A holiday that involves fun, food and cocktails so there is no surprise this year she’s ventured to the big apple for six nights in the city that never sleeps. After an unforgettable trip we wanted to hear her top tips to inspire your next promotion or even your next holiday.

  1. Where did you stay? Arlo Nomad Hotel in Manhattan. It was a great location with an amazing rooftop overlooking the empire state building, which guests have access to from 7am-5pm every day. The rooms were pretty small but you are just there to rest so wasn’t a big issue.
  2. What was your favourite activity? Summit One Vanderbilt. The newest viewpoint atop Midtown’s tallest skyscraper. After venturing up 93 floors you have unparalleled views of the whole city as well as an extra 3 floors of immersive art. We did this on our first full day which helped us get our bearings of where things were in the city from a birds eye view. We booked 2 months in advance and were glad we did as it’s likely to sell out at peak time, which is sunset.
  3. What was your favourite meal? Now this is a tricky one as we ate like queens throughout. But nothing hits the spot more than a slice of Joe’s pizza (a NYC institution) which we enjoyed in bed after a day of exploring.  Prepare for queues but it’s worth the wait.
  4. Most important thing to pack? Comfortable shoes. I can’t stress this enough, if you have a busy schedule during your trip comfort has to be key.
  5. Is there anything you wish you had done and didn’t? We wished we had gone to a Broadway show! That will have to be done during our next visit.
