Stroll Manhattan’s lively sidewalks in search of a once-in-a-lifetime find at one of the world’s most esteemed retailers, or just window shop the weekend away. Spring is the perfect time for a shopping excursion to the heart of New York City, as warm temperatures and sunny skies create picture-perfect conditions for taking a day to explore the stellar shopping situated across Midtown and the Upper East Side.
The convenient central location of The New York Palace makes the hotel a great place to stay during a weekend – or a week – of shopping in the city. The Palace is located on Madison Avenue, providing easy access to the upscale boutiques and department stores that line Fifth, Madison and Park avenues from the pedestrian paradise of Midtown East to the tree-lined streets of the Upper East Side. Many of the suites at The Palace feature expansive walk-in closets to fill with your newest acquisitions, and each room is imbued with plush appointments and an elegant aura.
The perfect day of NYC shopping starts with a fresh breakfast at Istana – we recommend the Smoked Salmon with a Toasted Bagel for a taste of New York – with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice or a flavorful espresso. Hit the department stores early to avoid the crowds: Start at Saks Fifth Avenue, stroll uptown to Bergdorf Goodman, and stop by the entrance to Central Park on your way to Barney’s New York and Bloomingdale’s. Eat lunch at one of Midtown East’s finest restaurants – try Prime Grill or Fig & Olive – before walking up Madison Avenue to the city’s best stores. Hermes, Prada, Cartier, Giorgio Armani and a wealth of other designers boast outposts near The Palace.
