First, if you don't have a good New York City street map, buy one or borrow one! It is absolutely crucial for planning successful days and nights, and
ensuring a relaxed, stress-free vacation. Use the information below to select the most suitable NYC hotels or alternative accommodations for you. Then, use your newly-acquired street map to select the best location for your accommodations.
When choosing NYC hotels or accommodations, select a location that is convenient to the majority of attractions you will visit, as well as a subway station or bus stop. If, for example, you are planning to visit the Statue of Liberty, The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, the Empire State Building, and lots of shows and plays, consider sleeping on Manhattan's west side, this refers to west of Fifth Avenue. If you are avid museum goer, consider the upper East Side, where you'll find Museum Mile. You'll cut down on travel time, exhaustion, and have more energy with which to enjoy the big apple.
Remember, you don't have to sacrifice the quality of your room. Simply review all the NYC hotels options that I've provided for you, and choose what works best for YOU. Saving money on your accommodations translates to more money for fun in the big apple!

If you are an avid traveler, a student or backpacker, or just on a tight budget, consider staying at the ultimate cheap NYC hotel, New York City hostels.
NYC Hostels are clean, safe, friendly and have kitchens in which to make one or more meals. Families can be accommodated in private rooms or take over a small, private dormitory room. You'll find dormitory-style rooms beginning at $30 per person, and private single rooms starting at $60. You just can't beat the price.
A bed and breakfast offers a warm, welcoming atmosphere with charming rooms that reflect NYC's local flavor and character.
Bed and Breakfasts serve as lovely, relaxing respites from a long, hectic day of touring or shopping. They are a great option for couples, especially those seeking a romantic escape, and are also ideal for singles or groups of friends. In general, they are not the best choice if you are traveling with children.

No, now hang on--I'm not suggesting that you sit and listen to a sales pitch--I'm talking about just renting one from an owner (the guy who DID listen to the pitch.) NYC time shares are usually quite luxurious, offer super amenities, and are priced more competitively than hotels--especially if you rent by the week. Check out my thoughts and recommendations here.
