    NYC Hotels


    0 Not allowed!
    My turn for NYC help. I go to NYC a lot but not a billy bigshyt thread. My family live in various parts of the US so that's why I go regularly.

    BUT, usually I stay with my mate Shaun (who owns Foleys) but he's got a lad's house (a shythole). Or my sister's place but I'm on her latest list for 'not speaking to'.

    So as I am taking my wife for her 2nd visit, I need hotel recommendations please. Didn't realise how bloody expensive they are there. Taking the piss just slightly. I know a few on here have been recently so any advice would be great.

    Thanks, Mac.
    Visiting NYC? Please get to Foleys on 33rd Street between 5th and 6th Avenue. My mates bar and very Albion / sport friendly.

    What do you define as taking the piss? Or what is your budget?

    Personally I think NY lacks good hotels, so I go for the right balance of location / reviews / price. I stayed at Hilton Double Tree Chelsea the other week, was about $160 per night, good location, clean etc.
    900k people in Bromley & Croydon, almost double pop of Manchester. Bigger than Norwich & Ipswich. Fickle fans in terms of attendance, cup games increased attendance do not help.

    We went last year and stayed in the Holiday Inn, in Lower Manhatten. Its about 2 blocks away from Ground Zero.

    Pleasant if functional, not too pricy. They've got a lovely bar downstairs that stays open till all hours, which was a nice way to round off our evenings each night of our stay. Just the job, I'd certainly go back.

    Yep, we paid an upgrade to go on one of the highest floors, amazing views. Right by the Freedom Tower.

    We stayed in The Avalon, East 32nd Street... decent, clean, central location and not overly expensive.

    The Manhattan at Times Square on 52nd Street and 7th Avenue is where I stayed in February. Location was perfect, 10 mins walk to Central Park heading North, 5 Mins walk South was Times Square and Madison Square Gardens a further 10 Mins south with Empire State and Rockerfella in between. I Paid $417 for 3 nights.

    And very easy access to Ellen's Diner - a must visit!
