There is no best area. The best area is the most comfortable hotel that you can afford that has convenient transportation to what you want to see. September is an expensive time for hotels: what is your budget per night, for how many people, and how many beds? And do you know your exact travel dates?

I think beginning of Sept is less expensive than later in the month.

You will be moving about the city on foot and by subway so it's more important to look at proximity to transport and if you are happy with what it's offering for the price. So many hotels and areas to choose from.

It's a good idea to plot the places you want to visit during your stay as a start then look at hotels in the areas or ones with good links to the areas you will be visiting. If you are going for more than a few days then you may want to split your stay if you are looking for best value.

Where you should stay depends on what your wishes are. Do you want lots of bright lights and swarms of people - then stay in Times Square. Want a neighborhood in Manhattan with somewhat less tourists - check out the Upper West Side, Greenwich Village or Soho. Someplace cool and hip - head to Williamsburg in Brooklyn.

There is no one place that is central to everything. As long as you are near the subway - you are near everything.

I stayed at Crowne Plaza Times Square and it was immense, couldn't do enough for you,brilliant location and views from our room on 45th floor were breathtaking,I booked thru Expedia and got a good rate, stayed at 5* Conrad as well and didn't compare to Crowne Plaza! Going back January 2014 and will only be staying in one place, wherever you stay you will enjoy it, an amazing city.

Just back from NYC, we were in element 39th street and as so many others say as long as you are near to subway you are near to everything, so cheap and easy to use, buy an unlimited 7 day pass for $30 and if you get on wrong train, jump off and back on again!
