Luke Beasley

Saint Petersburg, Florida

What are the best hotels under $200/night in Manhattan?

I have several work-related trips I need to make to the city this year and I need to find a couple of clean, safe hotels in the city that are under $200/night to stay within budget. I know this is a tall order but I'm hoping someone can help me. I'd love as many ideas as possible since these places always seem to fill up so fast! The only thing I don't want to do is stay outside the city because I don't want to spend time commuting.

    Hey Luke, check out the Herald Square Hotel in Midtown. I stayed there over New Years for about $130'ish including tax and all! New Years of all times! The hotel is very centrally located by many subway stations, as well as the Penn Station, which was fantastic for me because I arrived by Amtrak and ended up being able to walk to the hotel from the station. It's in a pretty hip and happening area with plenty of stores, restaurants and people. The rooms are tiny and the amenities are sparse, but if you're looking for an inexpensive and safe hotel to stay at in NYC and you don't mind a few missing amenities, then I'd recommend looking into this place.

    Bonus points for the good customer service, free wifi, and free candy and coffee machine in the lobby :)

    Hotels are expensive because of all the taxes added on to base room price. You can try discount hotel sites to see what they offer. In that price range , they may be over in Brooklyn etc. Have you thought about AIRBNB? People on this site rent out a room in their apt or house for a very reasonable fee. You can choose the part of the city you would like to be in and how much you want to spend. They will give you a list of rooms available for the dates you will be there. Good Luck

    Don't know exactly where you need to be for work, but if you want clean, safe & comfortable, the Lucerne Hotel at W. 79th & Broadway is great- good rooms and really good restaurants surround it. It's convenient to the 1,2,3 subway, Central Park , close to Lincoln Center . Personally (as a former resident) I'd not stay near Times Square. I checked rates- start about $179 online but you could always ask for business rates. Hotel taxes add up, so do ask about the total to avoid shock.

    Keep checking hotwire.com, I found a four star hotel just a few blocks from Times Square for $99/night. Check hotwire first, then bid your own price at Priceline at 20% under hotwire's price - I'm at ~85% success rate.

    Hope that helps!

    Nu Hotel is usually pretty affordable and is a very simply boutique hotel in a great Brooklyn location. Understood it's not in Manhattan, but it's so close by downtown and to a bunch of subways, you'd spend almost no time on a commute (depending on where you're headed).

    You should keep an eye on the HotelsTonight app. It's very useful for finding great prices last minute.

    it depends on the date. I stayed at The Westin New York at Times Square on two adjacent dates and the bill was very different. 191 usd and 361 usd Company was paying the second one :). it's a very good location and the rooms are great. it's worth checking the rates there might get lucky.
