Temperatures are finally beginning to rise and spring is once again in the air in New York City. Soon, both residents and visitors alike will watch as the city sheds its winter coat and begins to bloom into a burst of color. Experience this exciting transformation and enjoy all the fun activities springtime in the city has to offer from our hotel in the Upper West Side.

If there’s one thing that’s synonymous with spring, it’s flowers. So, in the spirit of this floral season, New York plays host to a variety of flower shows and spectacles. Enjoy the sweet scents and breathtaking displays at the New York Botanical Garden’s 16th annual Orchid Show, see an iconic department store transformed into a lush garden at the Macy’s Flower Show, and make the trek out to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden to get a taste of Japanese culture at the Sakura Matsuri Cherry Blossom Festival.

Meanwhile, art admirers can enjoy an afternoon spent browsing some of the best works in the world while taking in the beautiful surrounding cityscape from Randall’s Island during the Frieze New York fair. Each spring, the island becomes a hub for global art, bringing together leading modern and contemporary art galleries, a series of talks, and unique artist commissions. Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind NYC spring event.

Finally, one of the world’s most well-known film festivals, the Tribeca Film Festival, returns to New York this April for its 17th year, and will showcase the best of the best in film today.
