Best western plus Prospect park: Good deal, metro stop allmost "at the hotel".

The rooms were better than I expected for the price (750 $ for 7 nights, taxes included) and the staff quite friendly. We had asked a room from upper floors (we did book 4 months before), but we got from 3rd floor. I think it might have been because of the "early bird"-price and "5 or more nights"-price, witch we both got.
The room was really clean when we arrived, but the cleaner wasn´t very go. But it was our own hair and toothpaste marks and so on anyway, glad it was clean when we came. The cleaning lady didn´t leave us two big towels at 3 nights! It was "nice" to see, that there is only one towel, when you came out of shower. Luckily we were a coupple, and used the same one then. And why did she even took our towels, when we did like they said: Left them at rack, when we didnt want them to be changed!
Breakfast was a little disapointment after reading good reviews from it. Two mornings we did skip it. But it was our first time in USA, maybe locals do like to eat that way. Everything seemed to be quite sweet, nothing salty, if you don´t like sausages and bacon. There was lots of things anyway, but most of it was quite..tasteless. And served from paper plates, plastic cups and plastic knifes and forks! What a load of trash! There was a waffle machine, witch made quite good waffles, but it isn´t something I would eat for breakfast usually. But then again, maybe it´s the American way! =)

We might have wanted to stay at Brooklyn heights or closer to Atlantic centre (more restaurants to eat in at walking distance) but the location was not bad, and in summer the distance must feel shotrter than in cold wind we had at nights. And the metro stop right at the front doorm metro running whole day! Great wifi connection!
ATM machine at the hotel. (Maybe in all hotels, since they seemed to be "everywhere".

The London NYC: Trendy and Luxury Hotel

My daughter is in New York for the Video Music Awards 2013. She is in public relations for a prominent cosmetic company who is providing a lounge for the entertainers. Luckily, I taught her well and she takes photos of everything and I thought I would post her tips and pics. I will let you know what she thought of her 5 day stay at this hotel. Looks like Gordon Ramsey has a restaurant located in this hotel, according to the website!

Will let you know.

An Apartment on the Upper East Side: Apartment by Terri Gavin

A friend I have known since college is renting out her apartment when she travels on business. As the ad notes, the apartment is indeed in a quiet residential neighborhood on the Upper East Side, on East 77th.

The apartment is "small" (but probably average by NYC standards) but is complete in terms of bed, fold-out sofa, full kitchen, bath, Internet, etc. Since the apartment is lived in by the owner part-time, it is fully stocked and everything works. And while it's a "walk-up", it's actually only on the first and a half floor, so hardly any walk up at all.

The quilts in the apartment are by the owner, a prize-winning quilter.

The apartment is a "long" block and a half from First Avenue, so neighborhood bars, restaurants, and stores are not far away...oh, and uptown and downtown buses, too, as well as taxis. The subway is another 3 blocks away on Lexington, opening the whole of Manhattan to the traveler.

Note that the "price per person" is misleading, as the apartment is priced per day...so two people are just $75/day each.

For people who want to spend at least 5 nights in a real apartment in New York at a price that places it cheaper than most hotels, this is worth looking at. It can sleep up to 4 (in a bed and a sofa-bed), and the presence of the full kitchen will add to the experience of really "living" in New York, as you can shop locally and make your own meals (saves a lot of money as well).

Sky City at East Hampton: Apartment with a View

Ten minutes from the downtown Manhattan, and with magnificent views of the New York skyline, the East Hampton apartments may not be in New York City, but they are perfect for visiting. Large, modern, tastefully decorated apartments with everything you need nearby: huge supermarket, children's playground, Starbucks, PATH station, shopping mall. It also has a river walk with stunning views of the entire west side of Manhattan. For the price of a shoebox in Manhattan you can have a 75m2 apartment in Jersey City with great views in a safe, clean, recently built riverside residential area.

There are some small downsides to the apartment: The heating is through the AC system and was not very effective in our apartment. There are washing machines, but you need a card (not provided and not explained). We had to buy one from a nearby apartment block. The entrance was undergoing renovation.

It's not a hotel. There is someone to meet you and give you the keys, but after that you are pretty much on your own. It has everything you need: wifi, cooker and oven, huge fridge, sofa bed, flat screen TV, microwave, etc. I was very pleased to with my choice. It was just perfect to end the day lying on the long chair and watching a Manhattan sunset.

Comfort Inn Lower East Side: Lower East Side, Manhattan, all about the location

The selection of this hotel was mainly for two reasons, the location and reasonable price.
As we been to this city previously we wanted to stay in the part of the city we like the most, The Greenwich Village East side. The hotel itself was nice, the service was very kind and friendly. The room was small but we only needed it for sleeping, in this city, I didn't plan to spend time indoors anyway. They also have cable flat screen TV so we could watch some TV show before getting to sleep. The air condition with own possibility of setting for cooling or heating as you wish. Complimentary breakfast was served in the bottom floor with feels like bed & breakfast.
But as said, all was about the location, that was just excellent for us, we do like to walk around the street of New York at day and at night. We could walk from the hotel to Brooklyn Bridge, cross into Brooklyn. Walk to Wall Street, Little Italy, Chinatown, Soho, Chelsea and back. Coffee places, restaurants and bars are plenty to choose from in this location so there is no problem to find something for your taste from early morning to the late hours at night, the place is alive and blooming. Few minutes walking from the hotel is the Subway station Delancey, from there the F line will take up in few minutes to the center with stops at 14th, 23rd 34th. 42nd & Rockefeller Center and forward. Return to the hotel at night is easy the same way or by taxi which will cost you only just about 20 dollar. PS: Wi-Fi was free and working, so our stay here was excellent.

The Millenium Hilton New York

The Millenium Hilton New York location was almost suitable for us in the lower side of Manhattan. However, I realize that in the business sector it is situated I wouldn't be as easy to just step down to the local pub or restaurant as in the East Village were in the end we selected the hotel for the last time stay in this city.

Crowne Plaza

Crowne Plaza hotel at the Times Square can be excellent choice for who ever plan lots of activities and theater in Broadway. It is central location close to everything, however, it is missing the social qualities that we were looking for this time and therefore we haven't selected it in my last visit.

Budget!: Cheap Hotels in New York

There's no such thing as CHEAP, QUALITY accomodation in New York.
It's one or the other.

You're going to be looking at WAY more than $100, even for Long Island!
Don't believe me? have a look at this: http://tinyurl.com/cde96vy
Long Island STARTS at $300 !!!!

I think you are looking at hostels for that kind of money. Try this search instead: http://tinyurl.com/c4lulzc

(I've used tinyurl to shorten the urls, as they contain all the search terms, and they're MASSIVE!)

CHEAP.

AIRB&B Service: Hotel Alternative

You might want to try AIRB&B. I found it online while searching for Bed and Breakfasts. I used this service to book a room in a private apartment to stay a few days while visiting NYC. The site lists a lot of such places and has pictures, descriptions and profiles of the owners. It also has reviews from previous tenants.It does not share any personal information until both parties agree it will work for them and reservations have been requested. The room I will be renting is in the apartment of a young female dancer. She rents her spacious, attractive and clean spare room to travelers for $65 a night for one person, $88 for two people. We will share her bathroom, kitchen and living space, and be respectful that it is her home. I have never done this before and look forward to our visit in April, she sounds like a lovely person. The hotel rates in NYC have skyrocketed over the past couple of years, there simply are not any bargains anymore, not even in roach/bedbug hotels. Good luck in your search.

The MAve: Good Value and Location in New York City

The MAve rooms are small, but very reasonably priced. It is modern, clean, recently renovated. We stayed 3 nights in late May 2010 in a "Madison Queen" room and paid $443 for the 3 nights, by booking through booking.com (the hotel website rates are higher), which is good for New York City!! . It was fairly centrally located, in the Flatiron District and we could walk to the Empire State Building. It was between two subway stops (and we used both, depending where we wanted to go; one of which serviced the subway to Times Sq). It doesnt have much of a lobby, really, so it you want a large grand hotel with a bar, this isnt for you. Also, the free breakfast is rather basic. Criossants and danishes on paper plates and coffee, that you help yourself to, but it was fine for us. We grabbed a croissant and coffee most mornings, and other mornings if we felt like a bigger breakfast, went to a diner. But if you want somewhere that is good value, clean and convenient, check out the MAve. Would recommend this for budget-minded, low maintenance travellers!

The service of the staff at the desk was outstanding, for a budget to medium priced hotel. I didnt expect it. It was like the service of a 5 star hotel. We asked for recommendations for a nice steak restaurant near the hotel one night. It was Memorial Day (a public holiday) and many restaurants were shut, a fact we hadnt thought about. The guy at the front desk warned us of this and offered to ring around to find out what was open that night. Before doing that, he went through the restaurants that were in the area, in our price range and the cuisine we wanted. He then spent quite a long time calling restaurants as many were closed, but persisted and made us a reservation in a good restaurant. With other requests as well, they were helpful and polite.

Toshi Apartments: Toshi Apartments - Nice place to stay in New York

We have stayed with Toshi Apartments twice now, love the apartments, love the locations. Our apartment was really good, one bed felt a little too soft, but we only needed the other two. I Would definitely recommend your apartments to others, we had an enjoyable stay and would like to thank all of your staffs for their care and attention.
The reservation system is a little confusing. The best thing would be that everyone who booked through you should get a contact person. That would make it easier in your communication towards the coustomer. Gabriel was great. He stayed on the phone and answer our questions!! But we really liked the apartment!

Comfort Inn JFK Airport: convenient

In many ways a typical airport hotel at a big airport. You take a free shuttle from the airport (see transportation tip) and find the hotel is in an industrial wasteland next to a busy highway.

The room was clean and comfortable. Reasonably quiet. It had a filter coffee maker - useful if jet lagged and waking at 4am. Breakfast was also good enough.

The shuttle back to the airport only runs every hour, so not wonderfully convenient. It is only 5 minutes away, so not sure why that is.

Only its convenience for JFK.

AIRBNB.COM: DO NOT STAY AT A HOTEL IN ny

Airbnb saved me allot of money in New York

for $40 a night i stayed with a lawyer up in harlem

for $70 a night i stayed near park ave & another apartment block on 23rd street

How did i do it

I simply went to airbnb.com & looked for rooms to rent in NY.

I found the ones i like & were my budget.

You then email the host tell them about yourself, about your trip 7 theyll decide if you can stay with them or not

Stay in someone else house is a great xp. you get your own key, your own bed, you can leave your stuff in your room.

&* the owners are a charm they can serve you tea & coffee in the morning & leave some breakfastout
