I've just discovered that it's illegal to rent a 'vacation apartment' in NYC for < 30 days. We are a family of 5 (3 kids aged 5, 9 and 11 years) and will be in NYC for five nights, arriving April 11 and leaving April 16th. We would like to stay in mid-town if possible. Does anyone have suggestions about hotels that have a bit more of an apartment feel to them, without being incredibly expensive?
Are there any circumstances in which it is legal to rent an apartment for a short period?
Thanks in advance for your help.
