Hotel New York
Hotel New York is themed in the style of a series of Midtown
skyscrapers alongside typical New York brownstone and Gramercy
Park houses, and has a real art-deco feel to it. The lobby
is large and open, overlooking the Lake Disney watercourse,
and immediately in front of the main hotel lobby are a series
of formal pools and fountains, and an open-air ice skating
rink, though it's not usually used during the summer months.
The hotel was designed by the American architect
Michael Graves, also well known for having designed several
of the Walt Disney World resort hotels in Florida.
Externally the hotel is decorated in terracotta,
dove grey and soft salmon paint schemes, whilst internally
the theming is carried down to the smallest detail. Generally
the Hotel New York is more of an adult hotel than a family
resort, and as well as families it caters specifically for
the convention business (the hotel features the largest and
most well equipped of any of the Disneyland Paris resort conference
The hotel rooms are spacious, and will comfortable
house a family of four. Most feature two double beds, or one
double bed and a sofa-bed. All of the rooms are decorated
in an Art-Deco style, and feature En-Suite bathrooms, minibar
(key available from reception), hair-dryer, telephone,a nd
a large television with English speaking channels.
Room service is available at all times if required
for an additional charge, and most rooms overlook paved plazas
or shady gardens and tennis courts.
As with the Disneyland Hotel, the Hotel New York
offers a Castle Club VIP service, with a range of luxurious
suites, a provate lounge and additional privileges for an
extra charge, although the Castle Club service at Hotel New
York only operates during the summer months.

merchandise, as well as New York souvenirs such as T-Shirts
and designer clothes.

The Hotel New York resort is located approximately
5 minutes walk from the theme park. A Disney shuttle bus service
is available that leaves from the hotel's main reception,
depositing guests close to the theme park gates, though unless
the bus is already waiting it's probably quicker to walk,
since there's a 3-4 minute walk to the park from the bus'
destination stop anyway.
