We were there for 4 nights at the Rossevelt Hotel, excellent hotel dont pay attention to tripadvisor, i could have stayed for a month loved it alot of actiion
We could not have picked a better day to go to the Top of the Rock. The day was clear and we picked a sunset slot and watched the sunset together for the first time in our married life so that was pretty romantic (and freezing). The views of Central Park and Empire State Building are fabulous and my husband who is an avid photographer took about 30 photos of Empire State Building alone :)
Loved it! Need to make a reservation that same day in order to get the exact time you want to visit (ie sunset).
really great! we went on fiirst night and it was lovely to see the city lit up! x
The risk you take when going up in the morning in Autumn is the restricted view. Not as pleasing to the eye as last year's experience in August but still a must do whatever the weather. No queues at all at around 10 am. We were warned before whizzing up in the lift that we would only see half of what was possible to see on a clear day and sure enough we couldnt see the far end of Central Park so a bit disappointing for those we travelled with who hadn't been before. The speed of the glass topped lift up is an experience in itself.
An incredible view from all sides and levels especially on a beautiful day; it was great to be able to choose the day that we went according to the weather and our itinerary.
Great tour for learning about some of the key bits of NY history in a short space of time, before going up to the Top to enjoy the fabulous view. Very knowledgeable and amusing tour guide. The tour was mainly outdoors and it was useful to have headsets to hear the guide's commentary (he had a mic). Unlikely I would've spotted/understood the key points of interest if left to my own devices! Overall very enjoyable, good value for money and a great way to get a potted version of such an interesting part of US history.
Fantastic view point for the top of the Rock in the evening. Stunning.
Absolutely gorgeous view in all directions. Easy to book online before you get there as lines were long but they were very orderly. Elevator up to the 67th floor was so quick. Definitely worth seeing NYC from the Top of the Rock.
Thanks to our passionate guide we too shared his enthusiasm about the Beautiful Art Deco design. We loved hearing about Junior and Abigail and the scandal of the desecration of the Rivera mural. Wonderful tour!
A fantastic tour with a fantastic guide - C Phillip I think he was called. Very enthusiastic and very well informed about all aspects of the Rockerfeller Centre. He infected us all with his enthusiasm! View from TOTR were unequalled - great being on all the different levels with unobstructed views in all directions. Quite amazing!
