@Weebagpuss:  We stayed at The Excelsior there over New Year’s a  couple years ago when we got engaged, and it was amazing!! I think it was ~$250/night, but it was a beautiful historical hotel that was really clean and nicely renovated, and it’s literally right next to Central Park – so you can stroll around the park every day. They gave us a room on the 14th floor with views of Central Park and lower Manhattan, and it seriously was one of my favorite hotels I’ve ever stayed at. Might want to check for it on Expedia or Priceline!

I would consider staying in Hoboken or downtown Jersey City.  The only hotel in Hoboken is the W (I think its around 350 a night) but there are a few nice hotels in JC next to the train as well… a Westin and a doubletree. 

Both of those places are about 10-15 minutes from NYC on the path train.  It would save you ALOT to stay right outside the city.  

Before you book in NYC, definitely check your hotel on bedbugregistry.com

@Weebagpuss:  I’ve been to New York a bunch of times and never gotten bedbugs, if you check the hotel reviews on Expedia, and the bedbug registry, you’ll find out right away if there’s ever been a bed bug problem. 200 euros should go pretty far – that’s around $500 USD, right? I’ll be honest, everything in New York is pretty expensive, so don’t spend your whole budget on a fancy hotel – you’ll want to go out for some nice meals, and they’re definitely pricy! And the city is so large it can be a bit overwhelming, so I would choose a neighborhood that you’d like (touristy/artsy/quiet/whatever you like? we can help with ideas) and then choose a hotel that fits in your budget.

Try The Roger. It’s super nice (albeit tiny, but most NYC hotels are) and affordable. We stayed there last March.

Look at Groupon. I was looking today in the getaway section and saw some right at time square for like $110/night?  They have very good deals on Groupon, and you can look at the reviews on different websites to see how good they will actually be!

I stayed at Warwick when I went which was $250/night. But that was a really good deal we found through someones work.

Just keep your eye open, you will find something at a reasonable price! I would recommend to wait to find something in manhattan though, a lot of people get hotels in New Jersey and around the city and take the train or cab in. But it is so fun to wake up in the city and walk right outside your door to where you want to go, and probably will end up saving a little money because you wont have to take a cab all the time.

What about renting a studio or small apartment on AirBnB? You can usually get a better deal there, along with more space, and a kitchen! Always nice to at least have a fridge etc for breakfast items to save a bit on eating out.

@Weebagpuss:  don’t be nervous about it!  Just make sure you look into it first so you don’t find out after that you picked a gross hotel.  You could also look into renting an apartment for a few nights off VRBO.com  Some great deals for beautiful apartments on there

The New Yorker down by Penn Station is fabulous. The room’s are beautiful and it’s got a really great vintage flair! (Plus, it’s near a major public transit hub)

@Weebagpuss:  My parents stayed at the Roosevelt in March.  It is ok. Not great (kind of old) but certainly not horrible, generally clean and good value.  Lots of tours go through there so at times it can get busy.   Totally random trivia (that my dad of all people told me) – Maid in Manhattan was filmed there.

HOTEL MELA inbetween Times Square and Bryant Park.  Way cheaper than $500 and you walk a block and you’re in TS.  I think it’s about $280 a night.  It’s a boutique hotel and it’s lovely.

 

Cosmopolitan Inn in Tribeca is good too.
