Please read the second "Top Questions About New York City" that appears on the right-hand side of this page --- "Why are Vacation Apartment Rentals a Bad Idea in NYC?" When you read it, you will see that vacation apartment rentals---with very, very few exceptions---of 30 days or less are illegal in NYC.

If it's a place that has a kitchen/kitchenette that you want, please post your exact dates and nightly lodging budget. Posters will be able to offer up good aparthotel suggestions.

To quote:

"We've had great VRBO rentals in OR, WA & Hawaii, but had a recent terrible time with a Manhattan apartment. The apt itself was adequate & in a great location, but dealing with the eviction noticed (signed by a judge 11 days prior) that arrived on day 4 of our stay was unsettling. I spent the next 36 hours in a flurry of texts with the manager, afraid we'd be kicked out. It was all very nefarious & not worth the grief! I am trying to write a review on the VRBO website, but they refuse to post it by asking for rewrites as it doesn't conform to their "guidelines." With this experience & the recent NYC law making such rentals illegall, in the future I will stay in a hotel.Oh, & no more VRBO--#350493, by the way"

As you would have read over on the other thread you asked this question on , renting a private aparment for less than 30 days is in the most part illegal


There are a number of very nice apartment style hotels with small kitchentte and lounge areas . the Affinia group


radio city apartments


Or do you really need an apartment with a kitchen , New York is full of great cheep place to eat out .

has 1 bedroom suites where you can get either 2 double beds or one big bed (queen or king) and then a daybed in the living room. There's a kitchenette and continental breakfast is included. It's a short walk to Times Square.


mentioned above and


are more budget hotels that are also a short walk. Btw, being near Times Square is totally unnecessary.


is a very nice apartment hotel on the upper west side in a great area near Central Park.
