Could someone guide me from when we get off train no. 20 (Crescent from NOL) to our hotel, the Stewart , 371 7th Ave.? Penn station is so large, I don't want to spend hours wandering around. lol Thank you.

My father and brother worked for the KCS, so I guess trains are in my blood!

You will get off the train on the 8th Ave side of the station... walk all the way through to the 7th ave exit....hotel is on 31st street and 7th on the other side of 7th avenue from the exit about half a block down....

I suggest you have a Redcap help y'all from the Train Platform to Upstairs. Let your car attendant know you'd like one before arrival into NYP.

The Red Cap idea sounds great.  How much should we be prepared to tip him?  Thank you.

Standard is one or two dollars per bag. Being NYC, I am not sure if that is still the standard.

I'd give them $5/ more if you have lots of luggage and they take you all the way to your exit!
