There is only one time when you shouldn’t try to visit One UN New York and that’s during the two weeks when the UN holds its annual General Assembly. During this period, the hotel checks all its rooms out to the delegates from various countries, both as a courtesy to the UN and to help regulate safety measures. Usually, this two-week gathering starts at the end of September and runs into October, so if you are traveling at this time, it’s good to make sure you are missing the assembly. Otherwise, you can visit the Midtown hotel in the fall, spring, summer and winter, though if you plan on walking around to the various sites, summer and fall are the best times. Of course, the winter holidays are also a beautiful occasion to check out the city, and from your 30-story-plus room, you can see festive lights stretching all across Manhattan and Brooklyn.
