Looking for the experts opinions on a few hotel possibilities: Hampton Inn Manhattan/SoHo; Hampton Inn Times Square North; Comfort Inn Chelsea; The Lucerne Hotel. For a group -- trying to stay within a decent budget ($250-$280 per night) -- 2 double beds minimum, 2 queen beds if possible. Hampton Inn includes breakfast which is nice. Like the SoHo area for teen girls to browse the boutiques, galleries. Friend recommended the Lucerne -- not familiar with the upper west side at all -- appropriate for 17-18 year old girls to stroll/lunch/shop, etc.? All opinions greatly appreciated!
