New York - Help

I know that this has been asked many times before but this is really a post for those that have travelled to New York in the past few months (and those that were like me and jumped at the chance of a cheap flight with Delta - forgetting how much hotels prices are).
Can anyone recommend a decent price hotel to stay in - that is central (ideally Manhatten) and 3* plus? I have tried priceline but they have not come up with anything as yet. Was thinking of leave it to the last minute (I travel on April 17th).

Also, can anyone recommend places to shop and eat. I am a real bargain hunter, so any great tips would be much appreciated.

Thanks guys

If you want an amazing steak go to SHULAS, not cheap but one of the best.

Pax is great for lunches, fresh hot wraps and very cheap. I wouldn't call it fast food but i cant think of any other way to describe it? They do salads etc as well. Best to google it, there are a few across the city.

When you go shopping in Macy*s, make sure you got to the visitors centre (loctated on the ground floor mezzanine) first. Just show your passport to prove that you are an International visitor and you will recieve a visitors discount card for 11% off your purchases for the duration of your stay!! I saved SOOO much money!

Also, for getting around New York, I would strongly rec. getting a 7-day unlimited travel MetroCard for $25 (about £12.50), it costs half that for a child. The subway is very easy and quick to use. check out http://www.mta.info/metrocard/

Will def get the subway pass and discount from Macy's.

Steak, wraps.....ummmm

I stayed in the hudson last year,with my wife, nice but very very very small rooms. The bed takes up 90% of the room and the bathroom is 4'x6' with a see window from the bath/shower looking onto the bed, we paid £450 for 3 nights last April. The hotel ws very dimmly lit with dark choc coloured walls. Very good bar with cocktails inside the hotel, however very expensive. The restaurant was ok but again very pricey. You are about 25 mins walk from times sq and about 10 mins from central park

Thanks jeffnail. I did read the reviews and most of the feedback was the small rooms. I can cope with this, as we do not really intend on spending much time there anyway. Just somewhere clean to lay our heads.
Also, by the sounds of the bathroom - I think I better leave much of my make-up at home, as it does not seem as though there would be enough room to accommodate it!!!

Right, go to [url]www.nymag.com[/url] it has lots of great info with events etc. the best thing about it - is that when you click on an event/place - it tells you where it is and what subway stops/bus stop etc. I found it vey useful when I went to NY last year (this time last year - feel a bit sad now :( )

Go to Pasti's - Great food.

Don't shop in NY - go to Port Authority and take a coach to Woodberry Common in New Jersey. You will not find anything anywhere else for these prices. Ralph Lauren, Nike, Puma, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klien, Le Creuset etc - google it. It's the best place ever to shop.

I too got a metro card - excellent value - subways are better than here - very safe, frequent. Don't get a bus unless it's a short journey - way too long. Also if you get a chance (now some may think I'm crazy to say this) but if you have a spare couple of hours go to see a film at Loews in Time Sq or somewhere - seeing a film in NYis great - it's half the price and the screens are twice the size - we went to see 300 when I was there...

Hi I do not know if its too late and ou have allready booked, but travel zoo are offering hotels at £100 per night at the mayfair. We have just come back from staying at the Royalton which was 2 doors away at this looked a nice hotel.

Thanks again for the advice. Returned from my trip on Tuesday and had a fab time. Made two trips to Woodbury Common - great bargins were certainly had! Although, I did think the bus fare of $39 was slightly steep.
Thanks again for your advice. Shelx:thumbsup:
