Hotel Rates In NYC That Are Making Us Smile Right Now
On Friday, we shared a deal we found for a hotel room in NYC going for the very reasonable rate of $115/night on Quikbook. Now, we get that this is still winter and all—aka the slow period for hotels—but that post made us stop and think to ourselves, 'Surely there are other ways to enjoy NYC without breaking the bank on a hotel room?'
And indeed, when you're willing to get a little creative, there are.
Start with Manhattan's flophouse-turned-chic-hotel, the Bowery House. Rates here start as low as $49/night for bunks and $59/night for cabins, though honestly, you may as well bite the bullet and go for one of the cabins. You'll forget all about that $10 difference once you end up with one of those cute cubbyhole rooms all to yourself!
Not that we need to remind you, but it's always worth checking to see what's available at HotelTonight, where we've frequently spotted deals on hotels all over the city.
Take a place like Six Columbus—granted, not the best that Thompson has to offer, but a great location nonetheless. In a bind, we'd gladly pay $106/night to be within spitting distance of Central Park.
Same goes for Hotel Indigo Chelsea, whose clean, comfy, cute rooms go for around $140/night on HT.
Just five minutes from Grand Central, the classic Roger Smith Hotel has always been a favorite of ours—mainly because of all the interesting art they have strewn about the place. A quick look on their website shows rooms going for as low as $99 on certain nights. Which leaves you free to blow the rest of your cash on brownies, booze and bingo.
Last but not least, don't forget about the two places we've featured in the past week: Hotel Lola (above) and The Out NYC—both of which are keeping their rates below the $150 mark.
It's not the St. Regis, but for now, in this economy, it'll do.
