Sorry I know these are annoying and i know i should know better but......DH is hoping to come to NY over the Easter period....he has one requirement in his accommodation and that is that he has his own bedroom (ie not a dorm) and I have one requirement - that it's cheap!!
I think he'd like a more eclectic (sp) area such as the East Village or Chelsea, somewhere he can explore and do his photography. East Village Bed and Coffee is booked up unfortunately. I've found the Vanderbilt Y with a private room for $89 a night but not sure it's in the 'right' sort of area for him, also the Park 79 is showing at $109 a night (before taxes).
Whiz (assuming you'll read this!) - do you think it's worth booking something cancellable and trying priceline nearer the time?
So basically I'm looking at cheap with a lockable room (cause of his camera equipment and cause he sleeps like a dead man once he's gone off!) preferably in a 'less touristy more eclectic' area near the subway oh and did I mention cheap?!
