Disagree? Quieter hotels you can recommend? Please let us know.
- For business travellers looking for quiet hotels in New York, Financial District may be a good choice. Most streets will be deserted at night. Neighbouring Tribeca also has a quiet patches and it is a bit more central.
- You may be tempted to stay around Midtown but expect that most streets will have traffic throughout the night. There will be cabs, NYPD sirens and garbage trucks all making noise. A serious noise insulation or staying on very high floors could be the only solution.
- There are so many bars in East Village, Lower East Side and Chelsea that noise from the crowds, as well as the cab traffic, will be hard to avoid.
- If you want to stay a bit away from the crowds but close to the Central Park, Upper East Side and Upper West Side both have mostly residential areas with a few hotels.
