I've been to NYC twice now, both times were day trips and I'm looking to stay at least 2 nights - 3 days this time, but I want to find a decently priced hotel. I don't mind commuting from a nearby city if it's really not worth the price to stay in New York City. Any advice on good, cheap places to stay?


I'm staying in Secaucus, NJ right at this moment. It is a bus ride away from downtown NYC.

A good way to save hundreds of dollars.

Good idea. Also try the Cliffside Park/Fort Lee area where you are a $10 ferry ride from midtown.

Went last weekend. If anyone's into museums, can highly recommend the Tenement Museum (walking tours only, museum is in a tenement that was abandoned in the 1930s due to fire code failures; rooms are modeled to show the living conditions of actual former inhabitants) and the Museum of the Moving image in Astoria (their collection of props/costumes/prosthetics/set mock-ups was surprisingly wide-ranging, great for film/pop-culture geeks).

So... what to do in NYC this coming weekend? Tips?

I'll check out the museum of natural history this time. Skipped it all the previous times.

Getting there from Manhattan on the weekend seems to be a bit of a pain, based on what I'm reading.

Heading to NYC mid August for four nights, starting to make some plans, have a Hilton booked right now for ~250/night on 8th and 50th. Seems reasonably priced, could save more by moving out further I suppose, but, never been so we wanted to be in the middle of it all so to speak. Any more recommendations for food and drinks? We're not fancy people; pizza, burgers, pasta, or a bit of korean bbq works for us.

Standings is one of my favorite sports bars in the entire city, it's pretty small, but they usually have a good selection of beers, and a great atmosphere depending on what's going on that night. Also, I believe its Friday's that they order pizza from a place nearby and the pizza is all free while you're there. I forget the exact location but it's somewhere in Manhattan, probably not too far from where you're staying.

Fuck the Hilton, after reading the thread I checked out Seacaucas, 120.00 a night with free parking. Good idea Chims.

I went in May and spent more time at the Met museum. It was superb, although they gave me a hard time about the food I was trying to sneak in there (their cafe is much too expensive). Tip: don't be too honest about the stuff you have in your bags.

I don't really like Guggenheim after a few disappointing visits. Most of their collection is not on display. Their shop is great though. Check out the Calder mobiles; worth the purchase if you're into that sort of thing.

To refresh on the food: my favorites remain NY-style pizza (Pizza Suprema probably best), Russ & Daughters (no seating, buy and go, avoid lunch hour) and 2nd ave Deli. No good reason whatsoever to eat at expensive restaurants.

You may be able to get a chap hotel on Priceline. I paid $130/night for Paramount Hotel near Timesquare last summer.

I used trivago to find the one I've currently got booked, just for fun I looked up The Paramount, going for 221 a night right now through August. Something must of happened with them, priceline has removed them from their site.

I know people were checking in "normally" with low rates as well, but everytime I check their site it is in the $300 range. It wasn't the best hotel, nice lobby, rooms were small and warm in the summer, but the location was exactly what we were looking for.

I've stayed in Jersey a few times and I didn't mind the commute. Keep an eye on the train times would be my suggestion if you're staying there.

Yeah, we're planning our days around the buses and subways basically.

What trains. You just take the bus; takes 20 minutes to get to Manhattan.

I stayed at the Mariott.

I've taken both the train and the bus. Renaissance Meadowlands had a bus stop just outside the hotel and the Sheraton had free shuttles running to the NJTransit train station, which was 1 stop away from Penn. I took the train in to Manhattan another time from Jersey as well, but I was staying around Time Square and didn't want to pay for parking in Manhattan.

I took the train to NYC from Yonkers once. Too far.

I don't see the point of taking shuttles. What's nice about the hotels is that the bus stop is a step away.

Really? If the decision was between not going at all because of the cost of Manhattan hotels or staying out in the burbs I might understand the rationale. If you can afford to stay in Manhattan (particularly as a first time visitor) do it.

If you're traveling over a weekend check hotel prices downtown which can be considerably less expensive than their midtown counterparts.

I can afford to stay in Manhattan, but it's more then double the cost for a decent place. That's a considerable difference. And we're there Sunday-Thursday.

Paying a hefty premium to stay in Manhattan is unavoidable. You're paying for the experience and the proximity to pretty much anything and everything.

Regardless of where you stay you'll have a good time.

Anything near the Central Park tends to be expensive i.e. The Pierre, Mandarin Oriental, Plaza, The Ritz-Carlton etc... There is a Marriott on 59th that may be a little less pricey. Probably others but most of the heavy hitter are represented in that location and they charge accordingly.

Broadway runs from Union Square to way the fuck uptown. That said Central Park starts at 59th which intersects with Broadway at Columbus Circle. From there the Broadway theatre district starts roughly 10 blocks south.

Money goes further between Bryant Park @ 40th and 41st and around 52nd street (Midtown proper).

I've stayed in mid-town and downtown. Locations near Ground Zero are markedly cheaper and very quiet and walkable in the evening/nights. And the subway system makes it easy access.

Agreed. Weekend rates are very reasonable downtown, weekday can get pricey. Good options in that area include The Conrad (Shake Shack and a Blue Smoke in the immediate area), Andaz Wall Street, even Ritz-Carlton Battery Park is approachable.

Or people who place a premium on their own time. If I've got only a few days in NYC (and I've been countless times) I'll be damned if I'm going to spend much, if any of it, on a fucking bus.

I lived on the Upper West Side from 1969-1994. Great, crazy place to live (107th & Riverside, then 71st twixt Columbus and CPW and finally 88th between Columbus and Amsterdam).

But it's not as late night as it used to be.
