I am going on a cruise and will be staying one night before and one night afterward in New York City.
I have tickets to a Broadway show for the last night.
Due to availability and such, I have the choice between the Renaissance New York Midtown Hotel or the Courtyard Manhattan/Times Square West hotel.
The Renaissance is newer and offers a concierge lounge (my travelling companion has Platinum status), but I heard it is not in such a great area for walking around.
The Courtyard has reviews of very tiny, dirty, and old rooms, but is in a better neighborhood.
The points to stay are the same for both hotels.
I value your opinions on how to make the choice.
