After much dithering and checking prices I've finally booked flights to NYC. We are arriving into EWR on the 26 October and staying for 5 nights, departing on the 31 October.
I've checked out a lot of hotels but I'm struggling to find one within budget of $275 to $300 that has good reviews, location wise im not too fussed as long as its in the city and close to public transport. Usual tourist areas such as midtown, upper/lower east west sides etc but anywhere is fine.
I have looked at the following hotels but appart from the Affinity nothing really appeals.
Can you recommend any other hotels or let me know if any of the above are worthwhile saying in? Is a budget of $275 to $300 realistic?
Provisional itinerary is as follows but is only a guide.
Day 1 - Arrive 19:30 into EWR, transfer to hotel then food somewhere.
Day 2 - Early start, TOTR, central park, shopping (Macys, Bloomingdales) Katz deli or similar for lunch, Museums in the afternoon TBC, dinner
Day 3 - Early start, 911 Memorial, wall street followed by a boat trip to see Lady Liberty but not confirmed and will research further, times square and or theatre show evening followed by food somewhere
Day 4 - Another early start followed by Brooklyn Bridge walk, grand central station, maybe pizza or a good steak for dinner
Day 5 - TBC, if weather is bad the previous days we'll change the itinerary and use this day to do the things we missed.
Day 6 - Early flight back to the UK but will have an early breakfast somewhere nice
Thanks so much
