There are literally thousands of accommodation options in NYC and to save you some time, and hopefully some money, I’ve researched the best New York accommodation options and narrowed down your choices to a few select properties.
If you don’t know where to stay in New York City I’ve created a list of the best accommodation options for budget, mid-range and luxury travelers, and these properties have been put into three categories; hotels, apartments and hostels.
I’ve focused the location of the properties in Manhattan so you can walk to the main attractions, restaurants, cafes, bars, and have easy access to the Metro (subway).
Sure you can stay outside of Manhattan to potentially save some money and get a larger room, but if this is your first visit to NYC or you’re on a short stay you want to be in the center of “the city that never sleeps”. If you stay in an outer borough you won’t have the luxury of popping back to your room for a quick rest, to drop off your shopping, or to freshen up before hitting the town at night.
Sometimes the trade-off between saving money and saving time on commuting by being central to the action cancels each other out, particularly on short getaways!
For my list below, each property had to meet a specific criteria and for my research I used the Booking.com website.
Why book your New York accommodation with Booking.com?
Booking.com is the world leader in booking accommodation online and has over 800,000 properties worldwide, and over 700 in NYC. I like that you can book a variety of New York accommodation types on the one website – hotels, apartments, and hostels, even holiday homes – and I love how simple their website is to use!
With Booking.com you get free cancellation on most rooms and a best price guarantee. Plus, they have verified reviews from guests who have actually stayed at the property!
Yes, we are an affiliate of Booking.com but we are also paying customers, just like you, and use their website often to book our own accommodation.
