Why are hotel rates in NYC higher during the month of May, than they are during July and August?

Thanks for your input!

not as hot...

Re: Puzzled?

Business travelers are very much present in May, not nearly so much in July/August. If you take a look at September you will notice that they shoot up again. That's when we all come back (I travel to NY on business very frequently). If you take away half of the demand for hotel rooms, prices come down.

Re: Puzzled?

by Karensa

Thanks! I did a bit of research after posting the question and read about the heat and humidity in August. I assumed that during July and August hotels would have more demand for rooms, but obviously not for business travellers. We're visiting NYC in May, during the week, so unfortunately no bargains for us! We may take our chances last minute.. it may work. Right now the rates midweek during May are very high.

Midweek is tough, as that's when my tribe (business types) are swarming. Weekend rates are always cheaper. That alone should be a sign of how important the business travel segment is in NY.

Travel Tips for New York City

Take a helicopter-tour so you...

by Pavlik_NL

Take a helicopter-tour so you really will see what kind of jungle of steal, concrete and asfalt New York (Manhattan) is. Walking the streets, the huge skyscratchers limit the view, but in the air ...

Beautiful? No! ... Impressive? Yes! New York you will never forget and is the place to be for a stopover, however keep in mind that if you afterwards go on holiday, you are already exhausted. If you dare, take a helicopterflight between the skyscratchers and fly around the Statue of Liberty. Go to a musical on Broadway and gaze over the town from the Empire State Building. Try the Cheesecake, here the know how to make it perfect. New York also holds many many secret places and many are in Central Park or in little churces across the town. Well, little bit chauvinistic, but I am proud that the Dutch founded this great city. However, I still take a deep, deep sigh, when I realise that the worst exchange ever in our world must have been of the same Dutch: exchanging New Amsterdam for Suriname (and they call us a excellent business-nation ...)

A bit more about New York City's Manhattan:

by Dimi1

M a n h a t t a n

the wellknown Manhattan is the Financial District, The Civic Center, South Street Seaport, Chinatown, Little Italy, Lower East Side, Tribeca, Soho, Greenwich Village, East Village and Alphabet City, Gramercy Park, Union Square, and Murray Hill, Chelsea, Herald Square and the Garment District, Hell's Kitchen (or Clinton), Midtown, Upper East Side, Upper West Side, Morningside Heights, Harlem as well as Washington Heights.

Above 14th St., Manhattan is an organized grid of avenues running north-south and streets east-west, the result of an expansion scheme adopted in 1811. Street numbers increase as one travels north. Avenues are slightly less predictable: some are numbered while others are named. The numbers of the avenues increase as one goes west. Broadway, which follows an old Algonquin trail, bravely defies the rectangular pattern and cuts diagonally across the island, veering east of Fifth Ave. at 23rd St.; Central Park and Fifth Ave. (south of 59th St. and north of 110th St.) separate the city into the East Side and West Side.

Below 14th St., the city dissolves into a charming but complicated tangle of old, narrow streets. The confusion intensifies south of Houston St., where streets are not numbered. The Financial District/Wall St. area, set over the original Dutch layout, is full of narrow, winding, one-way streets. Greenwich Village, only slightly less Byzantine in design, is especially complicated west of Sixth Ave. The East Village and Alphabet City are grid-like, with alphabetized avenues from Ave. A to Ave. D east of First Ave.

Take the subway. In many...

by BeverlyTyler

Take the subway. In many locations, such as Pennsylvania Station, you can get a one-day pass for just $4.00. There are machines that take credit cards and will give you a pass that you can use on all subways and buses for an entire day. Rockerfeller Center at Christmas time, with the big tree and the decorated store windows on 5th Avenue.

The view from the top of the Empire State Building.

Central Park in the Spring, Summer and Fall is an area of almost constant activity. There is always some act performing in the park.

Downtown: South Street Seaport, Frances Tavern and Museum, The Lower East Side Tenement Museum.

Uptown: The new Rose Center with the Hayden Planetarium, The Museum of Natural History, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of the City of New York, The Guggenheim and so many more.

I am one of those New Yorkers who hates to go above 23rd. Street. That said, my favorite neighborhoods are:
the Lower East Side (LES)
East Village (EV)/Alphabet City (rarely called that anymore)
Greenwich Village

World Trade Towers

by Blatherwick

Although they are gone from view, the twin towers are far from out of my memory. They were two of the largest buildings that I have ever set my eyes on. Going to the 110th floor was memorable as you looked down on the other skyscrapers of New York. You could watch the yellow cabs of the city moving like ants below you. It was quite amazing to be up there. Plus, it was the best place to get Broadway tickets as the TKTS outlet there never had any sizable lineups. I think the thing that I will always remember as how they dominated the skyline as you looked back at the city from the ferry to Staten Island. For anybody that saw them, they will never be forgotten.
