Manhattan bed and breakfasts offer a warm, welcoming atmosphere with charming rooms that reflect NYC local character. You won't find your ‘standard’ hotel room at these inns. A 'B and B,' as they are often referred
to, serve as a lovely, relaxing respite from a long, hectic day of touring or shopping.
B & Bs are a great option for couples, especially those seeking a romantic escape, and are also ideal for singles or groups of friends. They are not a good choice for those with traveling with children.
Needless to say, there is an unlimited supply of Manhattan bed and breakfasts from which to choose. I’ve selected a handful that you will like. In many instances, these accommodations are considerably cheaper than standard hotels. I have not listed the ultra expensive ones.
Be sure to consult your New York City street map before selecting from my supply of Manhattan bed and breakfasts. Ensure that it is convenient to the majority of attractions you plan to visit or near a subway station or bus stop.
