Hotels in New York

    Off to New York later this month and wondering if you guys can recommend a budget place to stay.

    Thanks in advance.


    how low is the budget?

    and for how many nights? ...... and what part of town?

    Not sure about the budget, may be up to 150USD a day? Mainly a pleasure trip and any convenient location to tourist attractions will be good

    The La Quinta Hotel in Manhatten is a great budget hotel.

    The La Quinta hotel is located close to Empire State Building, Macy’s, the fashion district, Penn Station and Madison Square Garden.

    La Quinta Manhattan is just blocks away from Grand Central Station, Penn Station, and the Port Authority Bus Terminal. The hotel is easy to get to from the city's airports- JFK, La Guardia and Newark.

    The hotel offers concierge service to help guests arrange for car services and sightseeing activities. Guests have access to the 24-hour business center, as well as the on-site fitness center and gift shop.

    Try here?

    Me and a mate have just booked 8 nights in this place for the end of the month.
    easily one of the cheapest for the location (Near Times Square/Broadway/Central Park) etc, but can't comment on the quality of the place yet. (prob not too high but what do you expect for the price?)

    I emailed them for a quote and this is what they offered:

    "You are looking for an accommodation from May 22nd to 30th, 2008 - 8 nights, 2 persons;

    We can offer you is the following:

    - 1 Top room* with a queen size bed, sink, closet, small fridge, TV and radio at the total rate of USD 1320 with all taxes included;

    - 1 Duplex with a king size bed, a single couch, a double size bed upstairs, fully equipped private kitchen, private bathroom with Jacuzzi bathtub, flat screen Tv, radio and balcony, at the total rate of USD 2640 all taxes included - up to 4 guests;"

    So that's £660 ish. or £330 just for me. which is about £41 a night. BARGAIN!

    Hope this helps.

    I was there end of last year, was great!

    I stopped in president hotel, cheap and right on broadway, can't go wrong!

    dunno if its budget... but stayed in alex...would recomend it.

    Holiday Inn by York Racecourse. great value.

    WHOOPS! Thought you said York!! Sorry!

    try hotel 31, very good location and good hotel for the money, stayed there last year in a double (quite small) room with shared bathroom

    you will have the best time in NY!


    I stayed in a hostel $60 a night that was a hoot but not for everyone

    Try the Helmsley on 42nd street, right next to grand central terminal, 15 mins walk to empire and times sq, if in any doubt, check for reviews.

    Great thread, I am looking to visit new york in July and the hotels that I have been offered so far looked really grotty, and reviews stated that rubbish was left under the bed and cockroaches were found in the bathrooms, It really puts you off going but some of the rooms posted above look great, its good to hear about hotels when people have visited them before than just taking a chance on somewhere.
