Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.

  • Really great part of Upper West Side that has lots of shops,cafes, open air spaces to sit and people watch, performances, music, and so close to Central Park. Excellent bus and subway services.  more »
  • I love going to see the local artists and also cruise through the open air markets to find locally sourced organic food  more »
  • Went to see Chen Yun a story dating back 5,000 years. Beautiful ballet dance on story telling. Bright colorful delight. 2 hour show well worth every penny.  more »
