We've already told you about the hotel's new futuristic theme and, while it is definitely fun and so right for Times Square, it's the terrace that's got us really excited. There are so few terrace bars in this area, this one is bound to be popular -- especially on New Year's Eve; you might want to book a table now.
(The aerialist -- who was actually performing in the indoor bar -- isn't a standard feature, alas. She was just there for opening night).
Midweek rates at the Novotel start at $330 a night but we found a room with two beds this weekend for just $320 a night.
