4. New York, United States: Hudson's Yard is your place for designer labels

Lastminute.com reviewer adds, "We booked the Roosevelt Hotel & location was perfect! Just off 5th Avenue! We did a spot of shopping and went down to Strawberry Fields in Central Park. The weather was sunny but cold. We ate loads of New York Pizza, we were really close to shops for snacks and drinks & we were also close enough to take in shoes at Broadway!"

Lastminute.com reviewer adds, "Wyndham New Yorker staff lovely, hotel very central. Staff so helpful. All main attractions within an easy walk. Subway also very close to the hotel. Brilliant Deli called Essen a few doors away from the hotel which does a lovely breakfast, lunch and dinner all for a reasonable price. Also, a hotel surrounded by cheap places to eat like Arbys, Taco Bell, Pizza Brothers (Awesome pizza! And of course McDonald's. The bus station also not far from the hotel. Highline worth a visit and is a lovely walk and free! Hudson's Yard if you like shopping and designer shops. Carlo's bakery does a mean carrot cake and is right next door to the port authority bus terminal which is a short walk from the hotel. "

Lastminute.com reviewer says, "Great shopping at Century 21. We stayed at a very good residential hotel near the wall street. Good location, good transportation. So much to see, so may friends to visit, so much to do."

5. London, United Kingdom: Pick up an elegant umbrella from the world famous shops on New Oxford Street

Lastminute.com reviewer adds, "We went to a gig at the o2 forum in Kentish Town which was fantastic. Small venue but perfect for live music. Also had a shopping trip down Oxford street with an extended period in Selfridges. Expensive so we limited ourselves to Jam from the food hall. Living the high life. Finished the trip off with a trip to Camden Town market where we feasted on waffles and pitta. Excellent place for any foodies out there."
