Your Destination

Treat yourself to a stay in the centre of a contemporary cultural hub, blended seamlessly with charming Midwestern hospitality - this is America's Second City, Chicago. The 'Windy City' is located in the heart of the Midwest, famed for its musical heritage, bold architecture, world-class museums, and championship sports teams. When flying over, you will be awed by towering skyscrapers and of course, by the vastness of Lake Michigan. 

Indulge in some shopping on the "Magnificent Mile", visit Millennium Park, home to Anish Kapoor's famed sculpture Cloud Gate (during Winter months be sure to lace up your skates on the picturesque ice rink), and head to the amazing Art Institute for a culture fix. Walk along the coast and end up at Navy Pier where you can enjoy a dinner and drinks, as you learn more about the history of this epic city.

Home to venerated restaurants, chic nightspots, cutting-edge theatre and architectural masterpieces, New York City is forever on the cusp of reinvention, its creativity fuelled in no small part by inhabitants who hail from every corner of the globe.

Visiting the city's iconic sights is only part of the appeal of this metropolis. The shimmering lights of Broadway, the jazz clubs of downtown, the indie rock scene of Brooklyn, and highbrow cultural fare at Lincoln Center are all part of the incredibly varied cultural scene.

And those more interested in shopping have much to celebrate in New York City, with an astounding collection of colourful boutiques, high-end department stores and edgy shops selling cutting-edge couture. New York City is also a dining mecca, with thousands of restaurants serving up all the world's cuisines.

When you tire of pounding the pavements, why not return to The Freehand New York 4* for a comfortable and convenient meal in the hotel restaurant. The Studio, a cafe and restaurant on the second floor, serves North American flavours as well as pastries and brunch. 

In the early evenings, you are able to visit the George Washington Bar. Housed in a former bookstore, this vintage bar invites you to enjoy a cocktail in a sophisticated atmosphere.

Visa Waiver Programme

If you are travelling to the USA or choose a flight option with a US layover, the US authorities have introduced a requirement for passengers travelling under the Visa Waiver Programme (VWP), to register for Electronic Travel Authority. Passengers who have not applied for and received travel authorisation via ESTA prior to travel may be denied boarding, experience delayed processing, or be denied admission at the US port of entry. However, neither possession of a visa, nor meeting the basic requirements for travelling visa-free on the VWP, guarantees admission to the United States. As with most countries, the final determination of admissibility is made by immigration officials at the port of entry. Please remember that issue of ESTA does not guarantee admissibility to the United States - it is only part of the travel approval process. All queries in relation to this requirement should be addressed via the US Embassy Consular department. 

Please remember that if you are refused boarding or denied admission at the US port of entry, you will still be subject to our cancellation charges in accordance with the terms of our contract with you.

How do I apply for ESTA? 
There is an online application form which is available now at https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov. Prior to travel, you will need to visit this website and fill in the on-line application (currently in English only).
