Is that in the city? Not sure where that is. I stayed at Marriot Marqui in time square and loved it, great location. You walk right out the front doors into all the action. Fun things to do… carriage ride through central park, ice skate in rockafeller center, show on broadway.. Have fun!

Darling Husband and I just went right after our wedding for a minimoon.  We stayed at the Iroquois which is on west 44th between 5th and 6th.  It was in the most perfect area.  Close enough that you could walk to anything and subways right asround the corner also.  The hotel was AMAZING and treated us SO well.  I HIGHLY recommend it.

I don’t have any hotel suggestions, but here are some fun things to do:

  • The High Line http://www.thehighline.org/ (it’s fairly new, and very nice)
  • Walk the Brooklyn Bridge (my absolute favorite thing to do in NYC) and if it’s warm enough, hang out in Brooklyn Bridge Park (it’s on the Brooklyn side, so you get nice views of Manhattan)
  • If you’re there before January 8th, Bryant Park has a ton of good kiosks for shopping.
  • And as a general rule, don’t get food in or around Times Square. Go to the East Village, Chelsea, the Meatpacking District, the Upper East or West Sides, really anywhere but Times Square.

We stayed at this hotel ….

It is in times square and a great location! They have a little kitchen in each one of them and I absolutely loved it! So convenient and cute πŸ™‚ I don’t remember exactly how much they were but I think it was around 175 per night. 

Good luck at Kleinfelds!

My in-laws often get lucky with hotel deals on hotwire when they come and stay in town – if you’re willing to travel a little bit, you can get some really good deals around the city.  Kleinfelds is relatively convenient to Union Square if you want to stay in that area, which is fun.  If you see something on hotwire and you’re not sure about the location, feel free to PM me and I would be happy to lend some guidance.  Otherwise, if you don’t mind paying full price, Kleinfelds is in Chelsea, in walking distance to the West Village, Gramercy and Union Sq (and further depending on how far you consider “walking distance”).  Hope that helps!

I would stay ‘downtown’ in the Financial District or TriBeCa. They are quieter than Times Square but there are still tons of subway lines to access.

@awagy86: I agree – I would not stay in Times Square – but that is just my preference!

My Fiance and I stayed in NYC the weekend he proposed, and we actually didn’t stay at a hotel, we went through AirBnB.com, which is a very cool service that allows people to rent out apartments/rooms,  We had an entire apartment to ourself and it was SO nice to not be in a hotel.  The price was SO much more reasonable than staying at a super expensive hotel.  I would go by other members reviews of the place, and stay in a place that is entire apt to yourself, not a room in someone else’s place. 

Good luck!!

My Fiance just took me to NYC for my birthday! We stayed at the Trump Soho, which was amaaaaazing. It was definitely a splurge, but it was worth it.

@candy77:  WTH?

@natbug21: Check out hotels in Chelsea, which is the area Kleinfeld is in.  Still walkable to Macy’s and Times Square (if you want to do that), but less awful and touristy πŸ™‚  There are also a lot of great bars and restaurants, and its close to the Highline.

I always recommend two hotels in my neighborhood, the UWS:

On the Ave and the Beacon.

They are convenient to Kleinfeld via subway and I just LOVE my neighborhood so much I always try to convince people to stay there, lol!

I live near the city now but when we used to need hotels we would do the priceline.com name your price deal. You put in waht you want to spend (we always did $100/night) and preferred areas and it gives you something-only thing is, you have to take what they give you.

We’ve had great luck, done it three times and got crazy trendy/fancy stuff we would normally never afford haha
