Discount Hotel New York City

Aug 17, 2007
Looking for a Discount Hotel? New York City has a surprisingly large selection.

While the sights are alluring, the price tag for a trip to NY can be steep. Many people look for a hotel at a discount, so that they can have more of their budgeted "trip money" to use elsewhere. Because, quite honestly, few NY visitors spend a great deal of time in their hotel rooms.

How to find the best discount hotel New York City has to offer? The internet is hands-down the greatest resource for do-it-yourself travel planners.

You could start by looking at one the big-name travel sites such as Travelocity, Expedia, Orbitz. This will give a sense of what they offer as the "best" discount hotel New York City. But keep in mind that there are many other websites out there that may be willing to give you a better price.

Just click any link that you find on the web (they seem to be everywhere nowadays) and check out what that site has to offer. I recommend that you click on several different links that offer a discount hotel in New York City, so that you can really get a feel for what is out there.

You can also search by hotel chain because sometimes going directly to the source will save more than a big travel site (for example: New Yorker Hotel, Red Roof Inn, Super 8 Hotel Times Square). Also consider Bed & Breakfasts, Hostels, Inns, Guesthouses and even renting a temporary apartment.

A few questions to ask while you plan for an ensuing jaunt to NYC:

Where do you want to stay? New York City can be divided into several areas and these areas usually determine the range of hotel fees you're going to encounter.

Do you want your hotel to be situated in Manhattan, where most New York attractions can be found?

Or do you want to stay in a trendy upbeat area? If so, then the hotels in Soho, Chelsea and similar areas are probably what you're looking for.

Fortunately for the cost-conscience traveler, one of the best alternatives to a discount hotel New York City has to offer is a Hostel...and they are located all over the metropolitan area. The general price range for a stay at a NYC hostel is anywhere from $15-$89 per night. You can choose from dorm-style or private room. Most come with a free breakfast and all come with clean sheets and towels.

This is a great New York travel deal! I can speak from experience, this is worth looking into.

Who are you traveling with? While hostels offer an amazing deal for lodging, they are NOT for everyone. Those traveling with kids probably will not want to stay in one, unless you can secure a private room for 4 people (which some have).

For those interested in a simple discount hotel, New York City will not disappoint. You can find them all over the city with a range of amenities to fit your traveling needs and budget. The price range for these discount hotels are around $80-$325 per night. The price typically depends on location and amenities of the hotel.

A great NYC hotel tip to keep in mind: If you only plan to use the room to sleep, clean up and change clothes in order to go out again, then consider an accommodation that is slightly outside of the "hot spot". Transportation (fabulous Metro system, taxis, private vehicles, etc) is easily accessible and readily available most of the time 24/7.

So if you are looking for a discount hotel. New York City will meet or exceed your expectations and provide you with many to choose from. Not to mention all of the fun you can have with the money that you will save by choosing a low-budget accommodation.
