    Last time we went to new york in jan it was -15 degrees…

    Just bear it in mind… we then went in the summer and had a much better time… well worth the extra £500 ish.

    Cold. Expensive.

    Variable weather. Too hot sometimes in the summer though, and too many tourists crowding Central Park etc.
    I was in NY in Jan and the wind was chilly whilst walking in some directions, yet warm and sunny when the buildings sheltered you.

    Prices for hotels last week when I was there were hitting $500/night+ for hotels that are usually half that - ridiculous when I paid £46 for a night at the Premier Inn near LHR T5 yet 5-10x that for something not a lot better (stayed at the Kimpton in April for £170ish yet over £430 this time. Around £170/night at the Intercontinental in San Francisco last week)

    Could have been a holiday period (not just in the UK) as my BA flight from LHR-JFK was completely full.

    Less than £150/night as part of a holiday is very good for New York.
    £250 is probably an average (watching out for resort fees of $40/day? or whatever though)

    Hi anyone with experience is it a good idea to rent a car or to much stress and not worth it? Thanks for any feedback
    xenole's avatar
    For New York? If so, no need and parking would cost more than the car itself! Most of the time would be sitting in traffic honking your horn even though no-one apparently drives in NYC

    If you were travelling further afield, then perhaps pick one up at JFK (Federal Circle) or elsewhere.
    Don't really know of anyone who has ever hired a car in the area. Suppose a trip to Niagra Falls would work?

    I would be more likely to rent a car in the Boston area, drive to Cape Cod and/or to Vermont etc.

    Well I'm £1900 poorer today but we are now taking our two kids to the states for their first time courtesy of this post. We got a bargain a little bit later in the year for 6 days with a lovely hotel with great flights. Thank you (through gritted teeth) (edited)

    Times Square is a bit of a dump
    xenole's avatar
    Yes, but it's tourist central and a lot of people want to be near an area that is well known and not further out.

    I've stayed in Long Island (near the Queensboro' Bridge a few times: Country Inn & Suites, Holiday Inn and Hilton Garden Inn. 10 mins on the E line to Manhattan and it goes straight to and from JFK)

    Sometimes it's cheaper near the financial district as there's nothing touristy there, but other times, out of the way places seem to be far more £££ than mainstream.

    Very cold in the winter advised to pack your thermal underwear
  15. ian_stanley_matthews's avatar
    Went to new york a few weeks ago, nothing special tbh just feels like London. Stayed 4 nights then 3 nights in Washington DC, which was fab. I would certainly recommend DC to New York, much cleaner, less dense and miles quieter.

    Honestly this is cheaper if you wait and book in January. Got 7nights for £600

    £614 per person for 5 nights
  21. gt1915's avatar
    Yes, great offer but it's been very well known for -4 conditions on average plus heavy Snow fall
    xenole's avatar
    NY is like here. Weather varies, although when it gets cold, it gets a lot colder than what we're used to here.
    I've never had snow in NYC and I've been in most months multiple times.
    Some icy sidewalks off the main routes and the tail end of snowy conditions (heaps of snow at the side of things generally), yes, but mostly in March.

    Last time I was in LA and San Francisco, lovely and warm, blue skies.
    Time before, very heavy rain.

    Boston generally warm or chilly. Only ever seen snow there on Xmas Day and that was dealt with effectively.

    Good price, can’t comment on the hotel as I’ve not stayed there - but go for it and just make sure you have a hat!
  23. fudgey16's avatar
    Hotel is fine, close to subway, rooms are small but clean, no resort fees and the best cookies I’ve ever tasted!
  24. KeyboardKitten's avatar
    In New York right now! Great city with loads of character and things to do! Nice and warm during this time of the year. January will be very cold
  25. lisaburns81's avatar
    Went for New Years and it was no colder there than it was where I am in the uk.

    Had a dig around the site and booked 6 nights in March at Times Square Hilton (not double tree) for £1690.

    Thanks to the OP, very happy wife

    It's all about the free cookie when you go to Hilton I've stayed at this hotel. Feb 2020.

    I dont get the hype, NY is disgusting
    Gozman's avatar
    I can understand visiting ny for a day or as a side trip. Going for 5 nights is absolute insanity to me. I went to paris for 3 nights because my so booked it. By the third day we were bored as f. Visiting as city for more than two nights is pointless. (edited)
  29. Simon_Conroy's avatar
    Where does it say if resort fees are included or not? Can't seem to see it.
    xenole's avatar
    Hopefully they do mention it at the time of booking.
    The Doubletree example from the OP says it has none.

    Just had a look at the Hilton site and:

    Millennium Hilton UN Plaza $30 + tax per night
    Embassy Suites Times Square $30 + tax per night
    New York Hilton Midtown $30 + tax per night
    Hilton Times Square $35 + tax per night

    Hamptons, Hilton Garden Inns and Doubletrees might be fine?
    Some hotels have it, some don't, but it could add $150 for a 5 night stay at check-in / out.

    On the subject of the variable weather, I went in Jan 2020 and it was 20 degrees and we were walking around in t-shirts. Went this January and it was zero degrees and you didn’t step out the door without a coat!
    joseph.walker0zv's avatar
    I was there in Jan 2020 18-24th and it certainly wasn’t 20 degrees for us. Snowing when we arrived and bitterly cold on the mornings.

    Will be freeeeezing 🥶🥶
  32. Veganpoosmells's avatar
    Guys I really don't think this is a good deal. I went in Feb this year, same hotel and for 5 nights for 6/700 ish.
    xenole's avatar
    That's per person isn't it?

    You're generally looking at £300 minimum for flights alone, so a good £600+ for 2 people.

    Careful as hotels try to charge extra made up fees

    NY is much better in spring/summer, the weather can really make a difference to your experience. Winter is absolutely freezing and dark most the day
  35. AudioJunki3's avatar
    Would you say 3 nights is enough to do most of the things people would normally do? seems like a big place to stay only 3 nights

    You could spend 3 months in the 5 boroughs, there's over 80 museums for instance.
