Check out the hotels on your list on TripAdvisor.

Amtrak uses Penn Station in Manhattan and not Grand Central Station, IIRC. I dunno about your unknown hotel, but Radio City is a half-hour walk/12-minute subway ride/15-minute bus ride from Penn Station. Plenty of taxis there too, of course. I'd walk unless the weather is inclement.

I hope you can add a day or two to take advantage of being in the greatest city in the world(!). You have plenty of time for planning since I guess the 2013 draft is a whole year off. This is a great time of year in the city...spring flowers, usually great weather, lots of cultural events.

I'm not that familiar with midtown except to window shop (and go to Macy's ;-) But I highly recommend The High Line, a former elevated freight line (for delivering meat from the port of NY to the meat-packing district), now an amazing elevated park unlike any other in the world. It's down the west side of Chelsea--the northern tip of the park is just a few blocks west of Penn Station. Lots of good eats in the abutting nabe, Chelsea. You can bring takeout to the park, there's plentry of seating. It's much less crowded on weekdays. Yu could take a cab, subway, or bus to the southern end and walk north in the park to Penn Station--that's my preferred way (I've walked the length of the High Line probably half a dozen times in the almost year and a half I've lived here--and I am a long way from Chelsea).

In any case, have a wonderful time!
