The "Today" show is a live morning news program that airs on NBC. Located next door to famed Rockefeller Center, the "Today" studio is situated at the intersection of Rockefeller Plaza and 49th Street in New York City. "Today" hosts often come out to Rockefeller Plaza to talk to people who have gathered there to watch the filming. There are many hotels that are within walking distance of the "Today" show studio.
Manhattan Centre Hotel
The Manhattan Centre Hotel is located just across the street from Rockefeller Center. Guests can literally roll out of bed and walk just a few steps to catch a glimpse of "Today" hosts. Hotel guests can also walk to other nearby attractions like Radio City Music Hall and St. Patrick's cathedral. Those who stay at the Manhattan Centre Hotel receive discounts on NBC tours and at the NBC gift shop in Rockefeller Center. Additionally, the hotel provides free cold bottles of water, coffee and tea to its guests.
The Club Quarters hotel chain has a location very near Rockefeller Plaza and the "Today" studio. Club Quarters hotels are open to member organizations and their employees during the week. For those who are not members, Club Quarters guest rooms are available during the weekend. "Today" airs a weekend edition of its program; however, the weekend hosts are different from those who appear on the program during the week. Saks Fifth Avenue and the Museum of Modern Art are both within walking distance of the hotel.
