Whether it’s a luxury escape or a budget booking, Pokemon Go players can save on last-minute New York City hotel stays with Secrets Escapes that are close to some of the best locations in the city.
New York City's Central Park has 843 acres of trails, woods, lakes, fountains and statues that make it one of the best places in the Big Apple for finding Pokemon. There are several nearby hotels that are offering deals nearby as well as hotels close to other iconic NYC attractions and known Pokemon Go locales.
Morgans New York
A few blocks away from the Empire State Building, Morgans New York offers a classic experience. If you haven’t caught a Pikachu yet, this is the where you will want to stay in. The hotel is also a short stroll from one Pokemon gym (the Bryant Park Fountain) and Grand Central Station, which is apparently crawling with Magmars and Mewtwos.
