Hotel Wales: Who's Mac Conner?

All about Overnight New York
Overnight New York covers everything relating to hotels in New York City, from news, deals, and reviews to the culture swirling around them.
The best hotels entertain you from the moment you enter. You can see contemporary art, hear a DJ, play bingo at midnight or take in a Sunday night movie (there’s nothing like a hotel screening room).
Stay for the night, and a great hotel multi-functions at a dizzying level. Yes, you want a comfortable room, preferably with some style and a convenient location, all at a price that won’t result in bankruptcy.
But the right hotel presents the opportunity to try on a new life. Choose with care, and you can feel like a rock star or a start-up star, a president or a princess, if only for a night.
Overnight New York is completely independent with no ties to the hotels you see on this site. Its creator Terry Trucco is a long-time travel writer whose stories and hotel reviews have appeared in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Travel & Leisure and other publications.
We visit hotels anonymously and always pay when we eat and stay so our reporting is honest and unbiased.
Think of Overnight New York as a best friend who knows the city and susses out the places you’d like to stay -- and the places you want to avoid -- as well as the perfect hotel for a romantic dinner, drinks after work or putting up the in-laws.
We've reviewed more than 100 hotels and are constantly adding and updating reviews. Our blog delivers hotel news and posts several times a week. Check in often!
