September costs.

Beginning to plan our trip for September next year. Coming to New York for 5 days after 5 days in Vegas. I have read on this forum that Sept can be expensive in New York, how much more does anyone know. The dates we were looking at were 12-17 Sept although nothing booked so these could be moved back a week.

Have you tried to dummy bookings for the dates you re looking at for this year to see how they compare? That should help you decide if it's within your budget.

Hi Rowan, I'm going to assume that you're talking accomodation. To work out 'how much more' you could use Kayak.com to compare your dates with those the week after.

You can put in your dates, sleeping requirements and filter for prices to compare. If you give your budget and number of people and sleeping arrangements, we can help for those dates and also alternatives if you specify them for us.

Cheers.

I would advise that you book as early as possible a cancellable rate and keep looking to see if you can see a better deal. Long Island City is a good budget alternative to Manhattan so worth looking at that too.

Great to hear that you think your budget will work!

Agree with lassie about booking something in advance that you can cancel without financial penalty.

To expand on Lassie's great idea about investigating Long Island City hotels:

Long Island City (LIC) is an area of Queens. It's not Manhattan, but it's New York City and it's very close to Manhattan using the subway.

You could read the following advice about hotels in LIC prepared by former TA regular GWB and updated a bit by other regulars on this Forum.

"The usual Long Island City hotels that we recommend based on the convenience of their locations are the Verve, the Vetiver, the Country Inn and Suites, the Quality Inn on 40th Avenue, the Holiday Inn Manhattan View, the Fairfield Inn and Suites Queensboro Bridge, the 4 Points by Sheraton Queensboro Bridge, and the Comfort Inn on Crescent Street. New in this area from May 2014 is the Home2 Suites. The Nesva is recently opened and in this pocket too.

Not quite as convenient, but possible, are the Ramada, the Wyndham Manhattan View, the LaQuinta (which is really in Sunnyside, and not LIC, near the 40th Street station of the #7 subway), and the Quality Inn on Queens Boulevard (which is really in Woodside, near the 52nd Street station of the #7.)

The hotels with Long Island City addresses that are not as well located (either because of distance from transportation, or noisy/ugly/ inconvenient /questionable site) are the Days Inn on Queens Boulevard, the Z, the Best Western City View, the Fairfield Inn Manhattan View on Van Dam Street, and the Queensboro Hotel.'

Keep in mind that tax will add ~15% to the base hotel price. In the U.S., most of our sites state pre-tax price and might estimate your total price upon booking. When hitting booking sites from the U.K., it's possible that the stated prices might include tax estimates. I'm not positive, but it seems like that could be the case from what people have said on the forum. So just figure out what is included when you are browsing rates.

Booking a flexible rate well in advance is a good idea because hotels can book up, or prices can go up.
