Where is the most convenient place to stay?

Hello, we are a group of four traveling to New York Dec. 26-31. Would like to see Rockerfeller Center, a Broadway show, visit the Statue of Liberty, etc. Please recommend a place to stay as well as best mode of transportation. This will be our first visit. Thanks for any advice!!

The most convenient place to stay would be a hotel in Manhattan -- but without a budget per night, or a description of the sort of hotel you like, we can't tell you more.

The best mode of transportation from South Carolina to New York is flying. The best mode of transportation within New York will usually be walking and using the subway.

Note that secific and detailed questions tend to produce specific and detailed answers, while vague questions tend to produce equally vague answers.

It is so expensive in New York but the best place to stay would be a hotel, try to book as early as you can as the prices will be crazy. Subway and feet are the best, but take a cab when your feet are sore...

Thank you for your response. Hoping to stay at a nice hotel for perhaps $250/night(if possible) and hoping to be relatively close to transportation as my mother will be on this trip. We don't mind walking though. any advice will be appreciated.

I would be extremely surprised if you found ANY hotel in Manhattan that would sleep four of you for $250 a night on those dates, let alone a "nice" hotel. Would you rather increase your budget ($350 per night would be more realistic, $400 will get you closer to "nice") or stay further outside the city?

You also need to tell us how many beds you need, and how many rooms. (Can you manage with all four people sharing two double beds in the same room? Do you need two rooms with two beds in each? Etc...)

Are 4 of you planning on staying in one room? Are you expecting to pay $250/night for a room for 4? You're coming at a very expensive popular time. Seems unlikely to me.
