I am going back to New York at the beginning of January. I don't mind the cold and actually it is warmer than my hometown, Montreal, so I don't mind it a bit. I love going for the big sales and the great hotel prices! I am cutting my stay in two...staying one night....flying to Bermuda for 6 nights and coming back for 4 more nights in NY. I am probably be booking at the 6 Columbus for the second part, since the prices will have come down, but I was not getting anything under 220-230$ for my first night there
. I decided to bid on Priceline and did not get results so I tried their express deals. I got the JW Marriott Essex House for 164$ which I think is not a bad deal. I love that area and the best I was getting was 150$ for either the Hudson or the Empire. I think I am better off with this one.
I know that the reviews are mixed but I can always dream that they will upgrade me to a room with a park view.....I know....I am a dreamer:)
