How to Find Cheap Hotels in New York

Jul 29, 2008
have noticed one particular thing in my many months of travel. I find that lots of folks give up getting good deals even before they start. It seems to me as if bartering as an art seems to have been lost on many as is the art of comparison shopping. For every cent that you save while traveling when doing shopping for food, transport or even accommodation and transport is an extra coin that you have for spending on things such as adventure and entertainment.

In the great city of New York, there is lots that you can do here as you conduct your business or vacation that you will not find time to be bored. New York city has so much to offer that its hard to know where to begin. Since New York is an expensive city and finding cheap hotels in New York city requires effort, I would recommend that you start saving early before landing here. One of the ways to do this is to take time each day and take notes of the people you have had a chance to talk to and the offers you came across in terms of price & perks for accommodations.

Due to stiff competition in New York, many hotels are willing to go the extra mile and offer you perks in order to get business from you. Most hotel managers in New York are aggressive when it comes to promoting their properties since they know the more rooms they sell the money money they make for the hotels and as a result secure in their jobs.

If you are aggressive enough and make notes of the hotels you've had a chance to visit and make tentative arrangements with, you will most likely work out a deal with one of them that is better that what they originally offered you.

If you try to secure the deal on a weekend that is popular for travel, it might probably not work out very well so it wouldn't be a wise idea to look for accommodation in New York on popular holiday dates or an extended weekend for your trip. On the other hand, the rest of the weekends are easy to get unless some popular event is taking place on that particular weekend that will pull in a huge crowd to the local hotel industry.

Remember what i said in the beginning that many people usually give up good deals even before they try to get one? Not only can you get better deals by comparing competing hotels in New York, but can also get free perks such as meals, tickets to shows, spa packages at the respective hotels and gift certificates at the hotel gift store. You will be surprised at the length hotel managers will go in order to get business from you. The manager will be willing to risk doing business with you on the assumption that he will make up the "losses" in add-ons and other purchases.

Dont forget to be a generous tipper while you enjoy yourself in this hotel as some New York hotel managers can get irritated with you. Dont confuse being frugal and being cheap. Should you treat the staff at the hotel badly, they will surely remember you long after you've left The issue here is that you need to be polite and nice to the New York city hotel managers over the telephone and going with your best deal.

Do remember that getting the cheapest room does not necessarily mean that you are getting the best deal. There are other ways of looking at it. For example, if you are getting 1 or 2 meals every day that you stay at the hotel, and yet you are only paying five or 1o dollars more, then this might turn out to be a good deal, particularly if one of those meals turns out to be dinner.
