Hotels and other stuff in Jan

Looking for some advice on a few things.

Is it worth booking or hotel for the 24th of Jan for 3 nights just now or could prices go down ? For 2 adults needs to be pretty central and budget for accomadation is between $500-600.

Would also like to attend any sort of basketball game, please advise.

Also the 40/40 club, is it possible just to go in and have a couple of pints or is it all bookings and big money commitment ?

The New York Knicks basketball has games both the 24th and 26th at home and you can get tickets now on the website for Madison Square Garden. The hotel need not really be central but rather near a subway station then everything is central. I would search around and see what you can find.. book something close (after checking back here) that you have the right to cancel and then see if any deals come up. End of January there should be some deals but I would not wait to get a room.

You have absolutely nothing to lose by booking something now that's cancelable at a price you like. If you see something better later on, you can cancel and rebook. I see LOTS of good options on


for your dates that are fully cancelable.

Hotel at Times Square @ $139/night plus tax for a standard queen (this hotel includes free cont. b/f)

Eastgate Tower studio suite @ $139/night plus tax or jr. suite @ $159 or deluxe suite (with kitchen) @ $163

Shelburne queen for $149

Looking on kayak.com the Hilton Garden Inn Times Square is $159/night plus tax for a cancelable rate or $140 if you want to prepay. I think you could see some fancier hotels with similar prices on



for this time by Dec.

The last time we were in NYC in January '(09') - the average temperature was 55-60F - hardly the Arctic.

However as you know weather can change from day to day and hour to hour so keep a check on your fav weather site.

Let's not be alarmists about the weather.

I'm going to NYC in January next and am paying $128 (plus tax) for a double in the Red Roof Inn on 32nd St, including free breakfast. I have stayed there twice before and it's really good. It's been recently renovated and it's right beside the 34th St Herald Sq station.
