DH, myself and DS 10 and DS 7 are going to NYC in Feb next year and Im looking for hotel recommendations. To give you an idea in the UK we are more than happy with a Premier Inn style hotel and we plan in being in the hotel mostly just for sleeping. I would prefer to be near Midtown/Central Park areas and have a max budget of about £700 for 5 nights. Anyone got any ideas?
If you just want a 'crash pad' for sleeping in, then you may wish to consider staying in a Holiday Inn Express - there is one just west of Times Square on West 39th St (and you get a free continental breakfast). You can book directly here:
There are also US hotel chains with suites or family rooms (some may have kitchenettes) eg. 'Courtyard by Marriott' in Times Sq, Homewood Suites by Hilton, La Quinta Inns & Suites, Hampton Inn(s), Staybridge Suites (Times Sq/Port Authority....I've stayed there, very nice - part of the IHG group - Intercontinental Hotels Group, same as the Holiday Inns).
Hope this helps!
You could also consider staying in a 'suite' hotel as some of them have a seperate bedroom and sitting room with a sofa bed.
