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.
