Spontaneous night or two w/ teen ?'s

I thought we would spend Fri. &/or Sat night (the weekend of Jan15th) in the city with my 17year old. There seem to be a lot of good deals on Book-it or Travelzoo but I'm not familiar with most of the hotels by name and only somewhat familiar by address. Moderne, Best Western President, Hotel @ Times Square to name a few. Any reccomendations on these properties? We'd like to be walking distance to theater, museums,etc. Also, we'd like to see a musical. From the selection usually up on tkts any reccos would be appreciated. We already saw Phantom, Wicked, Lion King. Are there EVER tickets for Billy Elliot? Thanks so much!

Of the places you mention, the Hotel at Times Square is the nicest/best imo. They have some rooms with 2 queen beds (vs 2 doubles) and include cont. b/f. But you may find even better options on quikbook.com

You can't be in walking distance to both theaters and museums since they're not in the same place. Are you driving in? If yes, look at parking prices on


once you've picked a hotel.

I strongly recommend "In the Heights" which is usually on discount offers on broadwaybox.com Billy Elliot is never discounted.

Don't know how much you've dived into those special offers, but I ran through several of them and the big savings for next weekend are for a room with 1 bed... and I'm assuming you're not eager to share a bed with your teen.

You could get a room with 2 double/full beds at the Hotel At Times Square for $155/night (extra 10% discount with AAA card given at check-out) via the hotel's own web site:


And do check out Affinia's special offer that's posted on Travelzoo.
