New York Visit - Where to Stay?

edited June 2012 in Help / Advice Forum
So we're doing the family vacation at the end of July, we've booked 2 nights with family, 3 nights in DC and we want to do New York just for a few days. Basically we want to hit a few shops, see the Statue of Liberty, walk the city a bit, just experience it a little with the expectation that we'll be back for a longer stint some other time. Obviously, hotels in the city are stupid expensive.

Where are some (safe) areas we could stay that would be reasonable via public transpo into the city and not be $200+ per night?

    At this time of year, probably nothing. In Manhattan there are some dumpy chain hotels in Chelsea that sometimes have off-season deals under $200, but they were probably booked up two months ago. Outside Manhattan, try Jersey City and hotels in the ass end of Brooklyn. If you can find anything near a subway line expect a 30+ minute commute into Manhattan.

    Honestly, if your hotel budget is less than $200 a night you should reconsider coming to New York in tourist season. Aside from free Fridays at the museums (hella-crowded!) and the Staten Island ferry there’s nothing to do that isn’t expensive. Spend more time in DC where the great museums are free and cheap suburban hotels are abundant.

    Try Long Island City (LIC), its only a few minutes from midtown manhattan in queens. The neighborhood can be a little hit or miss, but a decent hotel will still be decent there.

    If you don't mind taking the train look into a few places in New Jersey. A smallish town like Rahway has a 4 star hotel directly across the street from a train station that'll take you strait into Penn Station in about 35-45 minutes... you could also do Linden, Woodbridge or Jersey City but I think Jersey City would be a little over an hour on the train if I'm not mistaken.

    Thanks for the advice, we found a place in nj, in rahway that was 111 a night for a king suite w jacuzzi if we prepaid (which we did). We'd been looking around jersey but it was a but confusing.

    We found a place about for streets off central park for around 170 from airbnb next time you are looking around.
