I am going to New York City for the first time for three nights. I will be arriving at Newark, New Jersey airport around 4:55PM next Thursday and will need public transportation to reach my hotel.
I would appreciate if anyone can advise me where I should stay in New York so that I can take advantage of public transit to reach most of the popular tourist spots. My budget for accommodation is no more than US$200 a night.
Thanks in advance for helping.
Check the Hotel Edison. The location is great (1/2 block off Time Square) and the price is very reasonable, given the excellent location.
try www.hotelgrandunion.com - 1/2 block from the Empire State Building and a subway stop.
2 blocks from empire state building, nice people, ok rooms, 2 blocks from subway.
the comfort inn manhattan on 34th st,it has slightly older style rooms but is clean and friendly, the staff are very helpfull when asking information about where you go and directions and will even book your taxi back to the airport. The hotel is just off 5th ave, right by macys and about a three miniute walk from empire state building,its a fair walk to central park but its only a short bus ride away or there is a sub way at the end of street.(i used the bus)
The best way to get from the airport is by taxi but check it has the fixed price of about $40-50+ tolls before u get in!
Hopefully i want to go to New york in November sometime, for 6nights
Ive looked at many sites for quotes on hotels and different ones.
I wanna stay close the main areas like broadway,5th avenue, central park area.
I would be travelling alone so single suppliments always apply to me
Wheres the best place to stay that would be a reasonable price.
Ive found it would like over £500 for accommodation for 6nights alone, not including my flights out there
Any offer me some advice, or places to stay thats gonna be kind to the single travellers pocket
I would recomend the Best Western Convention Centre (W38th between 10&11th) 5 mins from times square on foot, near all the action but without the price tag some of the other hotels ask. I've stayed there twice not sure how much the room was exactly but i paid 550 between us for 3 nights (2 people) and a return flight with AA.
If your on a real budget there are so ok hostels in the midtown area - depends if you can handle super budget accomodation!! Get your hands on a copy of the New York City rough gide or just call e-bookers i've forund them really competitive with hotel & flight packages.
When you do go check out The Gold Rush Bar on W39 between 9+10th - MAD!!
Sorry to disagree, but 10th-11th Ave. is WAY OFF the beaten path. Unless you've got business at the Javits Center, it's not even close to public transport, except the bus.
November is expensive in New York. The prices don't go down until after the new year.
What about staying at a hostel? Or a place with shared bathrooms? You could save some money by doing that.
The hotel reviews on www.tripadvisor.com are quite reliable, as they're written by people who've actually stayed there. Take a look at some of these budget hotels. In the Times Square area: Belvedere, Edison, Portland Square, Amsterdam Court, Novotel. On the Upper West Side (very nice / convenient): Comfort Inn Central Park, Newton, Beacon, Belleclaire.
500 pounds for 6 nights is pretty expensive, there must be cheaper hotels in the area.
Have you checked out the Comfort Inn Manhattan, way less out of the way than the BW.
Those blocks between 11 and 8th ave tend to be much bigger from my experience than the ones closer to Broadway.
Hi there! I'm looking for somewhere to book 3 rooms for me and my family in April. My brother is singing at Carnegie Hall so we are going to make the trip. I've been looking at hotels, and they seem very pricy... can you tell me what the average is to pay per night? And also any suggestions would be great, we don't need anything fancy, just a place to crash for the night, so the cheaper the better! Any help would be great! I am currently looking into the Comfort Inn Manhattan, just to give you an idea!
We stayed at the Comfort Inn Midtown last year and really liked it. The room was small, but clean and quiet. The price was less than most other places in the Times Square area. I also checked it out on tripadvisor.com and most of the reviews were good.
When I and my family are in New York I always book an apartment and go through the following company www.colbyinternational.com, they have a wide range of apartments in New York that are very comfortable and they are much more affordable than overpriced hotels.
Hope this helps.
Thanks Lisa, thats a really cool idea, but they require a minimum stay of 4 nights, otherwise I definitly would have taken that into consideration.... thanks for your reply either way!
Try the Salisbury. Big rooms with kitchenettes, always gets excellent reviews. Plus, it's right across the street from Carnegie Hall.
You might have luck at the Novotel, Radio City Apts., Belvedere.
Or... try the upper west side, just a 10-minute simple subway ride to Carnegie Hall. The Beacon, Belleclaire, Milburn are all good. But, even cheaper is the Newton, which is another mile up Broadway but still excellent for location and easy transit to Carnegie Hall.
Take a look at tripadvisor.com for hotel reviews (and Candid Traveler Photos... very enlightening).
Congratulations to your brother... that's an amazing stage to stand on!
I'll be in New York in April too. I booked the Herald Square Hotel, just around the corner of Empire State Bldg. Seems very well located, clean and a great deal for budget travellers.
