All Aboard: Hotels in New York City near the Cruise Port Terminal

Tourism in New York reaches over 50 million people every year. Many of those people come for the drama of Times Square, the beauty of the Statue of Liberty and the view from the Empire State Building. Other people come to rest their heads before embarking on an entirely different adventure. With one of the busiest cruise ports in the world, New York is almost as popular as a departure point as it is a destination unto itself.

If a journey by sea is in your future, these hotels are great places to rest your head before you set sail. The main concern while cruising is no longer scurvy, but whether you will be captured by the temptations of an all-day, every-day buffet. Before you embark on your adventure, consider resting ashore at one of these ten hotels, mostly less than a mile from the port. Even if you miss your wake-up call, it will be hard to miss your departure at the quay with these prime locations. Ink48 Hotel, for example, is just five blocks away from the port, providing an excellent link to the city as well as to the world beyond the island of Manhattan.

Get your sea legs ready by exploring one of America's most vibrant cities. All aboard!
