The Travel Inn is a budget option with free parking. Try there.

One option is to leave your car at NY Waterway Ferry Terminal / Port Imperial in Weehawken, NJ, where they have a secure garage and/or parking lot which is much lower in cost to park then NYC lots & garages, and then ride the Ferry into Manhattan.

Which direction will you be coming from and which direction will you want to go when you leave NYC? That can make a difference on the most convenient place to park.

Travel Inn for me in spring of this year was $250/night. A better option might be the Skyline Hotel which is on 49th & 10th & costs $10 a night to park & I paid $200/night. Please note that these parking prices are no in & out & the Skyline is valet parking so you can't take things in & out of your car as I did at the Travel Inn.

Another option, which I haven't yet tried, is the Staybridge on 40th between 9th & 10th. I think it's about the same price as above & costs $28/night to park but includes free wifi & breakfast which the others don't offer.
