The Marriott Marquis is right there beside the Shubert. Although it is a bit pricey, I would recommend it. I stayed there awhile ago when I went to NYC for a weekend with a friend and it worked out perfectly. It was nice to be in the thick of things and not have to worry about travelling too far at night after the show. We were seeing Titanic and didin;t know until we got there just how close we were to the theatre. This way we didn't have to worry with a taxi after the show.

When I went to see Gypsy in June I stayed with my cousin who lives in Queens, so I got a taste of riding the subway at night and it actually was kind of fun! Have a great time at the show!!! I know you will enjoy it!!

The Westin Times Square is literally right around the corner from the Shubert. It is absolutely an awesome hotel. You can get great deals through the westin website (the prices there are the same as you would find on the or similar websites because they want you to book on their site). When my mom and I went in April, that's where we stayed. It is a little on the pricy side (equivalent with the MArriott, I think) but so worth it. Plus they have the heavenly bed and the heavenly bath - the best night's sleep I ever had in a hotel. And the hotel is brand new - open maybe just a year.

I don't know what your budget is, but I was able to get the NY Hilton on 53rd and 6th for $110 a night. Big, clean, comfortable room and within reasonable walking distance of The Shubert. I got it through by asking for a four-star hotel near Times Square. I started at $100 and kept raising it a few dollars at a time until I was accepted. The downside to priceline is that you won't know in advance which hotel you'll get and you have to pay up front and can't cancel. However, it was definitely worth it for such a good price. Your other option if you want to go really budget is The Portland Square Hotel complete with lovely Pepto Bismal pink walls in the lobby. It's on W47th between Broadway and 6th (The Shubert is off Broadway on W45th). The rooms are small but very clean and you definitely can't beat the price.
You didn't ask but, since I'm on a roll here, here are a few restaurants to consider:

- Virgil's Barbecue
- Manhattan Chili Company
- Ben Benson's Steak House (very pricey but very good)
- Trattoria Dante (This is way down on MacDougal Street but is my favorite Italian restaurant in NYC)

Enjoy! I look forward to hearing about your trip.

When I went and saw Gypsy during previews in April, I stayed at the Hilton Times Square located on 42nd Street. I was right beside Madame Toussouds (sp?) Wax Museum and very close to the New Amsterdam Theatre(where The Lion King is currently running). This hotel was great! And a very short walk to the Shubert Theatre as well! In June, I went back to NYC and stayed five nights at The Crowne Royal Plaza, which is literally located right on Times Square....very nice and a short distance to everything! Oh! And speaking of restaurants, Carmines is incredible!!!! Its located right on 44th Street and is basically right across the road from the Shubert(very close to Sardis also)....the food is simply marvelous! This place serves very large portions, enough for five people to eat one entree! And the price is reasonable because you can split one entree between five people (or however many in your party). The tiramisu is to die for! I would also reccomend a place called Starstruck, I must have ate there a dozen times...very good food and the prices were very reasonable. Just my thoughts! Have fun in the city!!!

My friend and I stayed at the Comfort Inn in July on 129 W 46th St. within a short walking distance from the Shubert. Price: $134 nightly with the AAA discount;otherwise $149.We had 2 very comfortable beds,a fairly large,CLEAN bathroom. The hotel was very quiet,and although not plush,it satisfied our needs, and it is one and a half blocks from Times Square.I would stay there again.Of course,if I had more money,I would stay at a plusher hotel,but you're not on the room that much anyway! Enjoy!N.Y is such a great city!Phone for for hotel:212-221-2600.

To the loveliest lady of song!
You will keep on giving me joy forever...
