New York, NY: Offering Lower Hotel Room Prices


The posh Manhattan hotels, with their big rooms and bigger prices, won’t be offering any bargains this coming season. The average per-night room rate will continue to be $300 a night. However, some new boutique and teeny-room hotels there are coming up with more competitive prices.

The Manhattan branches of some of the national budget chains are offering prices to appeal the economy-conscious traveler. For example, the Best Western Plus President at Times Square lists prices starting at $120. The Holiday Inn Express on 36th Street has listed prices starting at $199. Nearby is a brand new Hyatt Place, with prices beginning at $195.

For those travelers who want the Manhattan aura without the traffic, pollution and mean streets, there’s the New York New York Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Room prices start at $55, and include two free buffet dinners.
