Mid Manhatten for £420 or Upper west side £230 - help please


    Im going to new york in April and have a dilemma with accommodation, and wondered if someone could help as i dont know manhatten very well
    1) Do i stay in upper west side hotel for £230 for 5 nights or pay £427 in mid manhatten?
    2) How long will it take to travel from upper manhatten to mid manhatten? (is it walkable, if not how long on metro)
    3) Is it easy and safe to come back to upper west manhatten at night on the metro?
    The hotel is situated on 258 West 97 Street, New York City, 10025, USA (upper west manhatten) so if anyone knows the area id be grateful for some feedback

    4) Im assuming its still a set fee of $45 plus toll and tip from jfk to upper manhatten ?

    thanks for all your help

    Hey Rex,

    I'd post this on FatWallet or FlyerTalk...for the best info.

    It's a long walk between the 2 (I think I work on 60-90 seconds per block if walking briskly); the subway is safe and cheap. But as long as it's not in the 35-40 dead zone, I'd go for the mid-town location everytime. Having said that £200 is a lot of money!

    Bon Voyage!
