Hotels in NYC

(New York City-Manhattan)

Most Expensive in the World!

Hotels in NYC-Manhattan are some of the most expensive in the World. Of course, you can't blame them for charging such high prices. After all, Manhattan is the center of the World... World's capital!

But, an average traveler visiting New York City for a business meeting, personal meeting or vacation cannot afford such high hotel accommodation prices.

Of course, you can find few cheap hotels in NYC-Manhattan, but they are very small with room for a bed, a TV, and little else. Also, be warned in many cheap Manhattan hotels quality takes a back seat... You may even have to share the premises with hourly customers!

Don't fret there is a solution!

Glad to share that there is a bright side to the sky-rocketing prices of hotels in NYC-Manhattan.

Come stay in Queens New York. :)

Hotels in Queens will save you money and you will be away from all the noise and bums of Manhattan. I know how tiring it can get being out all day and when that head hits the pillow, all you want is a good night sleep. A good night rest promises a great day ahead... no doubt about it!

Hotels in Queens are...

  • cheaper in prices than hotels in NYC-Manhattan.
  • good in quality.

Want to be in Manhattan, but can't afford the hotel prices?

Book a hotel in one of the hotels in Long Island City (L.I.C.)... a neighborhood of Queens New York closest to Manhattan. Here, in some hotels, you can book a room for as low as $50 per night!

Long Island City is changing rapidly. Middle class is moving in and restoring run-down urban areas. Also, the City is developing this part of Queens to become its new “hotel zone.”

L.I.C. is popular for its waterfront parks and thriving arts community. It has many art galleries, art institutions, and studios. For your safety, do avoid walking at night through this neighborhood's industrial and warehouse areas.

If you are traveling by an airplane, stay at one of the hotels in Queens near the airport...

The borough of Queens houses both of New York's major airports... LaGuardia Airport and John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport. Most people who come to New York City fly into one of these airports. Maybe you did too or are planning to. Instead of taking the shuttle or taxi from the airport to one of the hotels in NYC-Manhattan, stay in Queens. There are hotels conveniently located near LaGuardia and JFK that are also very close to Manhattan.

Staying at a hotel near LaGuardia or JFK is convenient and stress free. As, when it's time to get back on the plane it is very comforting to know you are within walking distance from the airport. I'm sure you know the driving situation in New York City... there can be a traffic jam at any given time and getting late becomes unavoidable.
