Hotel prices fluctuate daily in the city. What are their specific travel dates and budget in USD?

I assume they will be happy to share beds?

Prices fluctuate by date so it would help to know what their exact dates would be and what they expect to pay per night in US $ for a room. I'm assuming it's late August and this year, unfortunately that's not as cheap as it's been in previous years due to the Police & Firefighters Olympics being held here.

Hampton Inn Chelsea, Hampton Inn Times Square North and Best Western Hanbee Bowery are hotels that have rooms with 2 queen beds (like your kings) and offer a free continental breakfast and are in good areas. I use

kayak.com

quikbook.com

oyster.com

hotels.com

to do hotel searches. Doing a search on kayak for the end of August, I notice a great rate of ~$225/night plus tax (but non cancelable) on booking.com for a jr. suite with 2 beds (likely queens) for 4 people at the Affinia Gardens which is right near Bloomingdales and lots of other shopping. If they want to pay less than that and can't find anything in Manhattan, some areas of Brooklyn or Queens would be fine. What airport will they fly into?

Given the budget, I would think that they will not likely get anything centrally located in Manhattan. I do recall from my long ago student days, traveling to NYC with a friend and staying at a very safe youth hostel right downtown near Times Square that was run by nuns. It was cheap and adequate for students. Don't know if hostelworld.com or other advisors who are local may have more info......

District 12 won the Hunger Games last year, but then Bloomberg razed it to the ground. As a result, hotel rooms there are quite cheap.

BUT SERIOUSLY NOW ...

$150/night, August 14-17, for four people ... the Pan American Hotel in Queens (near the subway, decent location) has rooms with two double beds for $115.

If you can raise your budget to $200 you can get double-double rooms at places like the Milford Plaza in Midtown Manhattan.
