I wish I could use hotwire and priceline. They are not friends of the Canadian credit card. Evil or Very Mad

People I know at another forum use priceline for all of their U.S. get-togethers. They've scored some amazing deals over the past couple of years.

Still lovin' Lola's first suggestion. Small, affordable (with private bathroom) and walking distance to lots of things I want to see and do.

That sounds good to me too, ehBeth, I'm saving the name.

I looked at Priceline when I was going to NY, but was chicken because I don't know the neighborhoods.. where with a known hotel, I could ask people before I committed.. I guess I could have researched harder re neighborhoods and pinpointed where..

Hah, I just looked up the Empire Hotel that was mentioned as being better than the Y but the same money or less - here's the link, and it's $225. a night, gurgle.

Next time put the neighborhood on A2K in a question-- one of us, Kicky, Frank, Roberta, Lola -- will probably know or give you a good guess whether it's in a good area or one that when you check in, they ask you if you have a gun and if you say no, they give you one. Shocked

All this talk of hotels and the related expense is a bit puzzling to me. Are people so opposed to sleeping under bridges that it is no longer an option?


Infrastructure degrade...muffler buildup.

I stayed there one weekend. Very small room, but otherwise quite acceptable for a short visit. Plunk in centre of midtown, so lots of cool NY architecture all about...and the new MOMA is only blocks away.

Where I live they hand out sling-shots, rural.

I'm pretty much sold on it now. thanks, blatham.
I've got incentive to get this sorted, work-wise, as their are some good flight deals on right now.

I started a thread to gather/collect info for the hoped-for trip.

If you don't get over there, this is for all of you lovely New Yawkers
