I’m going to New York for my sister’s wedding in August, and had planned to stay in an apartment in Queens, near where she lives, like we did on our last visit. But they no longer are accepting guests for anything less than seven days. :mad: We’d actually planned to only stay for two, and then move over to Manhattan for a couple nights after the wedding for shows, eating, touring.
Well, since the Queens apartment is out (and I can’t find another one), I’ll need to book something for our entire stay, and my mom wants to go on and stay in Manhattan the whole time. (The wedding is in Brooklyn/Queens.) We’ve stayed in Chinatown before and liked it a lot, but it’s sort of far from everything and even though we’re subway veterans, I don’t want to spend my whole trip winging around underground.
So my question to Those Who Know is —
What is a nice, close-to-Broadway and other attractions hotel which doesn’t cost terribly much and is nice? I’m talking like around $200 a night (or less if that’s not ridiculous). I did a quick search on Bookit and see something called the Wellington which looks OK.
What should be my priorities when selecting a hotel? Sure I’d like to be treated like a queen, but I know that comes with a price tag. Should I be most concerned with location? Amenities? Which ones mark a good solid hotel?
Any fun ideas? We’re open to new experiences, though I’d rather not stay in a group hostel or something. Me ‘n’ 71-year-old Mom are way past that.
