Where to Stay in NYC

NYC Hotel Information
An economical alternative to hotels is Airbnb, Vacation Rentals By Owner (VRBO) or Homeaway.com. Airbnb lodging also tends to provide more living space than hotels.

Hotwire.com is a useful way to find a hotel at competitive pricing. Some excellent deals in prime areas of Manhattan can sometimes be found.

Here is some information on relatively lower-cost hotels with clean but very modest rooms (add 17% for taxes):
