Go to The Paramount. Rooms are small but elegant; I had a 2 room suite there for my wedding night. They have a great bar too.  It’s close enough to walk to Times Square but far enough away that you’re not in the noise/craziness.

Mrs-mcm-0507:  What’s your budget for dinner? NYC is such a huge range.

Oh I am so jealous! I don’t have much to add but want to follow to see what you decide!

Mrs-mcm-0507:  What a neat idea! Keep in mind Central Park and the Brooklyn Botanical Garden are about an hour away by subway (~45 min by cab) so make sure you build that into your day (particularly since you’ll be coming back to Manhattan likely tired and hungry). If you’re not up for the trek to Brooklyn that day, Central Park would be a lovely place to stay for photos. Another beautiful spot is The High Line (http://www.thehighline.org/blog) a beautiful park built on railroad tracks above the street — it’s in Manhattan and much closer to Central Park. 

As for your dinner, tell us what kind of food you’d like and what your budget is. There are a million options but you should give us a better sense of what you’re looking for ($300 10-course tasting menu at uber-fancy place, $25 plate of the best pasta you’ve ever had, or something in between?)

Mrs-mcm-0507:  the brooklyn botanical garden is *not* a quick detour from Central Park at all. 45 minutes to an hour to get there. On a good day.  I would skip that- there will be plenty of garden beauty in the park in May. For restaurants I would go by yelp.com or zagat to find the kind of place you want at a budget that suits you.

Agreed on skipping bbg (which I love) unless you really want garden pics.  There are so many more places unique to nyc that would be great for pics– high line, nyc library, dumbo, brooklyn bridge etc
