The New York City experience is everything, and few understand this better than your concierge. Fonts of knowledge for all things entertainment, food, and urban exploration, this hotel staple’s talent for digging up sightseeing spots, dinner reservations, and tickets to the best Broadway shows are without equal. Each year since 2007, the New York City Association of Hotel Concierges has held an award show to drum up applause for their favorite local picks—the spots around NYC at the top of the heap among services, experiences, and destinations.
And this year, we took gold!
The 2013 Concierge Choice Awards dinner was held in the city Monday night with fanfare and recognition for New York’s finest organizations in service to locals and visitors alike. And among such respected company, the New York Botanical Garden was nominated (our first time!) in the Tourist Attraction category as one of the best destinations in town. Concierges from the city’s top hotels joined in to select the best of the best—and we were lucky and honored to win in our category! The competition was stiff, too, making us that much more grateful for such recognition.
Being recommended as an institution by a New York City concierge is an honor in itself, but they have so much more to offer that many visitors miss out on. Rather than winging it the next time you’re in town, if you’re staying in a hotel, take the time to chat up your local concierge and see what he or she thinks would make the perfect day! They’re experts, of course.
