[UPDATE] Reminder! NYC's Hotel Week Starts Tomorrow
[UPDATE: We’ve been following The Jade hotel pretty closely, and was surprised (and delighted) they were on this updated list. Then we remembered rumblings about a February opening, so we had to double check if they’d be honoring reservations for Hotel Week. We contacted the hotel's PR team and was told that when first signing up with Hotel Week, a November opening was anticipated. Due to Superstorm Sandy, the debut was majorly delayed (not because of damages, but setbacks with the utility company). So, unfortunately The Jade will not be participating in Hotel Week. Stay tuned for more news on the eagerly anticipated opening.]
We let you know about NYC's Hotel Week early, so it may have slipped your mind.
But here’s a brief recap:
From January 4 – 20, 2013, hotels that normally go up to $500 a night will be on sale starting at just $100 and none coming in at more than $250. The reason behind this promo is simple—January is one of the slowest tourism times for NYC, so this is one way for hotels to bring in guests.
We’ve been keeping an eye on the list to see if anything jumps out at us (we are bummed that our beloved Andaz isn’t participating this year), and we think there plenty worth checking out. And hey, if you live in the city, now's your chance to do that overnight you've been wanting to try.
The new Jade Hotel is coming in at $200 a night. Fantastic.
Both Pod 39 and Pod 51 are decent budget options at $100 a night (though in April rates started at $119, so we're not looking at a huge discount here), but they're in key get-around-easy locations, so take that into consideration.
All three GEM locations have $100 price tags—again, not bad at all.
In fact, there are more than a dozen $100 hotels on this list! Plenty more than what we saw when we first wrote about this deal—an unexpected, but welcome surprise.
