I will have limited information here about hotels in New York City. Suffice it to say that most of them are expensive. You won't find a "cheap" hotel in the city, but if you are lucky, you can find some bargains. Check out the travel and hotel sites on the web, or have your travel agent find you a hotel.

You can also check out more links, including lodging, in the database.

These recommendations are from third parties. I do not have any information about these places. Take the recommendations but make allowance for the fact that tastes vary and you may find a different experience than what you read here.
This information was accurate when it was published, but can change without notice. Please be sure to confirm all rates and details directly with the companies in question before planning your trip.
