In nearly every hotel you will find a booth with information material, brochures of the tour operators etc.
A good idea is in every case to go to a New York City Visitor center.
There you probably get the best information and in addition maps and perhaps discount coupons.
Many hotels will also be glad to assist you with additional information regarding any bookings you might want to make.
Below are just a few:
