Close to Central Park’s Wollman skating rink
If you love ice skating, we strongly suggest slipping on one pair and feeling free at Big Apple’s awesome outdoor ice skating rinks. Central Park’s Wollman rink might be the fairest of them all, but Bryant Park and Rockefeller Center do not fall back in the beauty contest too far.
A certified budget saver just around the corner is Wellington Hotel.

Hotel guests are used to finding a copy of the Holy Bible on their bedside nighstands but if you will be checking in at The Damson Dene Hotel, you will find a copy of the best selling book Fifty Shades of Grey.
The hotel located in the Lake District of England is generating some buzz for replacing the religious book with the steam novel in its forty guest rooms.
Fifty Shades of Grey is part of a trilogy created by E.L. James. It has become a global blockbuster as it appeals to the imagination with graphic scenes of sex, sadomasochism, bondage, and other bed time adventures.
The owner of the Damsone Dene shared that he bought the place from a group of Methodist a decade ago and since then has been thinking what to do with the Bibles that are in the guest rooms. He said that the society now, it is quite inappropriate to have a religious book in private bedrooms.
The world of travel and architecture has evolved through the ages. We have dreamt of finding cities under the oceans for ages but who would have thought that we will be building structures underwater that offer amazing experiences. Here are some of the most fascinating underwater hotels around the globe:
Jule’s Undersea Lodge
This underwater accommodation is located in Key Largo Florida. This originally served as an underwater laboratory back in the 70s. In fact, the experience is so unique that you have scuba dive for more than 20ft from the surface to get into the hotel. You need to get that deep to see the entrance to this underwater hotel.
Each room has a round window that allows guests to look out into the deep. Of course, expect fish and other creatures of the sea to stare back at you. It is common to see angelfish, barracuda, snappers, and parrotfish since the hotel is built in their natural habitat.
Puerto Rico has a new hotel in its San Juan. The Olive Boutique Hotel recently opened its doors to welcome guests in its lively Condado shopping district location.
The new Puerto Rico hotel is just a small one and only offers fifteen luxury rooms. The hotel is divided into sections – France, Italy, Spain, and Morocco– honoring the places where the owners loved to travel.
The unique designs represent the experiences of the owners. You can see a century old wooden furniture and even their personal photographs around the hotel. Some luxe details include spa showers with an all glass surround and bath products by L’Occitane. Modern-day touches for the tech craving guests are answered by video-phone tablets featuring nice websites and of course plasma TVs.
The size of the rooms vary. There are petite chambers fit for solo travelers. There are large suites covering 247 square feet. This fall, the hotel will also have a lap pool on the rooftop, bar, and Jacuzzi.
The Pod 39 is the sibling inspired by the Pod Hotel. It recently opened in NYC and offers a good deal for those looking for an affordable New York Hotel.
The rooms go for $85 per night this whole month. The room rate covers all room categories from those that have bunk beds to those with queen bed.
The sample rate is being offered because The Pod 39 is still doing some construction. The very affordable rate is being offered for those who will are willing to bear with some construction work around the building, no access to cable TV, and no access to the internet. There are no bars or restaurants or open yet, too.
While you might be looking for the comfort and convenience, who can walk away from a super cheap rate in NYC?
Newly opened Wave Hotel in the UK has taken hotel gadgets up a notch as they use them for fun, games, and other kid-friendly purposes. There is more to this hotel in Bognor Regis than the usual e-concierge and room service.
The Wave Hotel is shaped like a cruise ship and offers 215 rooms that have great views of the ocean. The hotel gives its guests access to a Kindle library, iMacs, PS3, Wii, 3-D walls, iPod docks, and TV screens at the foot of every bed. Another great thing at this hotel – Free WiFi.
We are pretty sure parents will enjoy their stay in this hotel too as they will get a chance to have a time off with the kids busy with all the diversions and gadgets.
Thee kids cabins offer bunk beds with their own TV and DVD player. The kids will have their own space in most of the suites and can be accessed via porthole doors.
