You should probably state what "a reasonable cost" means to you (in USDs).

Sorry! I cant seem to see anything under $500 - in mid town. Am I just looking in the wrong places?? The hotel would have to be really great for me to spend that much.

There are not that many hotels with rooms for 5. Prices for NYC hotels are skyrocketing given how popular a destination it is. I'm guessing you're coming during school hols like lots of other families. Hotel rooms work on the basis of supply and demand and many folks have already booked for Oct. Soooooooo....

you can try looking at


all suite hotels. You can also try




Embassy Suites

Doubletree Guest Suites Times Square

Courtyard Marriott Midtown East

If these don't work, your next option is to stay outside Manhattan. What airport do you fly in/out of?

You've left it kind of late so that's part of the problem. And NY isn't cheap. What did you want to pay?

Is that $500 for just a hotel room? The Affinia Dumont has one bed apartments for around that (bedroom with 2 dbl beds, sofa bed in living room), kitchen etc. Don't know how many nights or exact dates you're travelling so hard to be totally specific.

Travelling with children I'd always go for an apartment. Affinia's have a front desk so you still have that if you need it.

This is the website if you want to check

Unfortunately that's about the average cost for a hotel in the Midtown area.

The cheapest hotel I found within the city limits was Manhattan Broadway Budget Hotel, located at 273 W 38th St. According to Hotels.com, they are charging $335 for mid-October.

Check out the reviews on Tripadvisor - the first review is from a family of 5 as well.

Hope that helps!
