New York City’s hotel rooms are among the most expensive in the country, but savvy travelers know January is the slowest month for travel. So it only makes sense that hotels—even hotels in New York City—will offer deals during Hotel Week NYC, January 3rd to the 12th.
And we’re not talking just any old hotels. Among the participants are the flashy Gansevoort Park Avenue, The James New York, and Thompson LES. Then there’s the trendy Ace Hotel with its round-the-clock lobby scene that’s not to be missed, and the new Jade Hotel in Greenwich Village.
Rates start at $100 a night—you can barely get a hostel at that nightly rate in Manhattan normally. And $200 or $300 may well get you rooms that normally go for $400 or $500 a night.
In some cases you have to call the hotel directly while others allow you to book on line. Either way, you have to mention “hotel week” to get the discount.
Some sample rates: $200 for Hotel Giraffe or the Library Hotel; $300 for The James in Soho; $100 for the Affinia in midtown Manhattan. Here’s where you can check out participating hotels.
