@Jbone0327:  I think 20 rooms is safe.  Have you considered other locations? It is so easy to get around NYC with subways and taxis.  I’ve heard that there are affordable hotels on the UES and UWS, but since it’s the 4th, I think UES might be the cheaper option.

We had a room block at the Ritz Carlton Battery Park, and they were on the pricey side ($325/night for a basic room) but their service was seriously incredible. The coordinator worked with me to set up the room block, coordinate logistics for my night before the wedding stay and an after party later on, and was just generally amazing. If its in your guests’ price range, I would give them serious consideration. And PM me if you want to hear me gush about my experience there some more. 😉

ETA: did you try the Nu Hotel on Smith Street in Brooklyn? That would be a great location!

We have a block of $250/night for rooms at the W Hotel in the financial district.  Not the cheapest but pretty cheap compared to most places.

@Jbone0327:  Wow, $169 is a great price! My wedding is only a month before yours, and all the hotels I’ve spoken to have quoted me $225 or more. Maybe I should try the Andaz as well. Did you find other quotes <$200?

@Jbone0327:  I would just do both – as long as you’re not held responsible for a particular # of rooms being booked, it doesn’t hurt you to do them (and it’s nice to give your guests an option).

Those prices are amazing! I looked in the same neighborhood and got quoted much higher. Oh well.

What about using airbnb.com to book an entire apartment for family members that you know will want to stay with each other. You could also book hotels elsewhere in the city and note on the invitations that they are a short cab ride away.
