Our friends used the Salisbury in midtown.  It’s not fancy but it’s well-maintained.  They knew someone there and got a ridiculously low rate, but I think it’s more reasonable than most hotels in that location to begin with.

I have just about given up on NYC hotel blocks and think I will just be providing various ideas to my guests on my wedding website…figuring they can probably get a better deal on travelocity or priceline or something similar.  Or at least they will be able to choose what they pay, rather than thinking I’m being crazy for blocking >$200 hotel rooms (which in NYC is nothing, but to people from Pittsburgh seems insane!)  If anyone finds a great deal please share!

I am having the exact same dilemma for November.  Seems it’s always peak season in NYC! The best rate I could find was the Millenium Hilton for $199.00, some rooms face Ground Zero, which is the only drawback since I am not sure how my guests would feel.  I was using Hotel Planner and they solicit the hotels on your behalf and get the quotes for you, it was pretty helpful.

Suttonista,

It’s even more expensive in December! The millenium hilton was also the most reasonable block I found. The hotel and rooms were nice, but like you said the major drawback is right across the street… I reserved the block, did you? How are you wording your hotel info?

@marathonbride: We ended up going with the Doubletree in Chelsea at $219 and Hotel Indigo also in Chelsea for $231. We actually toured the Millenium Hilton and were pleasantly surprised with the hotel, but since the Doubletree was only 20 bucks more and much more centrally located we decided that would be a better choice.  But who knows where the guests will even end up staying!

The Radisson Lexington and the Roosevelt both gave me blocks for under $180, I would call them. They are both in midtownish, near Grand Central.
