Default New York Hotels

Lads, there's way too many hotels in Manhattan, any little gems that could be recommended?

Are you looking for a cheap place to stay or are you willing to spend a few thousand on a hotel?

I would like to think that NYC would be able to cater for somewhere in between those markets to be honest beer-y m8!

Prices for the "normal" gaffs look to be north of £200 a night. I had a Hilton sorted for £95 a night, but didn't pull the trigger and it's gone.

Thankfully, it looks like Hotwire might have come up with the goods, 4 star gaff just south of Central Park, at £115 a night.

Would any of you guys ever recommend staying outside Manhattan, e.g. queens? Hotels appear to go down to about £50-£70 a night for quality hotels, but it seems hassle spending 20+ mins each time on subways getting in and out.

I stayed in the Holiday Inn (HI 57) a few years ago and it was very reasonable. Not sure of prices now.

Found a gem on hotwire in the end. You don't find out the hotel until its booked but we've got a 4 star in Mid-Town. Turns out it's a Marriott.

The New Yorker.

Bit dated, but huge and walking distance to everything that matters.


Staying there again in September.
