· Fashion 26
We found available rooms at this Chelsea hotel for an average of $262 a night for a superior king. Sure, you won't see the parade from your room, but you do get free WiFi and cupcakes . Sweet. (Note: This hotel is listed as sold-out on their website, but rooms are still open on Expedia.)
· Gild Hotel
Cupcakes not your thing? For more of an adult amenity, you can get designer condoms at this Financial District hotel. Rooms are $212 for a superior king room but if you book an advance purchase rate, you can knock that down to $191 a night.
· W New York
You can snag a room at one of the city's original W hotels for just $269. And since it's located on Lexington Avenue, it's just a few blocks from the parade action.
· The Carlton Hotel
Stay at the Murray Hill hotel, with rooms going for a low $191 on Expedia ($239 on the hotel's own site), and you can rest your parade-weary self in the new Salon Millesime with a cocktail and some live music.
· The Marcel at Gramercy
The hotel's Polar Lounge, a cozy Arctic-inspired bar without the chilly temps, makes this a good parade wind-down spot. You might run into Matt Damon there. Standard full and queen rooms are going for $223 a night.
*The rates we found were valid as of November 4 for dates from 11/24-11/27 and are subject to change.
