Manhattan Hotels — 4 or More to a Room

October 26, 2007 at 11:55 am 2 comments

Manhattan hotels that accommodate 4 adults (or even 6) are very hard to find. When gals get together for a getaway, they usually like to room together — more fun, less cost. I’ve done some online research and have come up with a list of hotels that can work out well for a group. (Haven’t stayed at any of these, but they look pretty decent. I’d suggest you check out the Web sites and then visit TripAdvisor.com to see if there are any reviews.)

Upper East/West Side

Midtown — Times Square/Garment District Areas

Lower Manhattan — Convenient for Chinatown, Canal Street, Little Italy, Ground Zero, SoHo, Greenwich Village, Staten Island Ferry, Battery Park

TIPS:
1) Private Bath or Shared? This is NYC — don’t forget to ask before you book whether or not your room has a private bathroom. All of these hotels I’ve listed do have private baths, but at least one or two offer both options.

2) Choose Your Hotel Location Around Your Plans. If you have a firm agenda, it makes sense to select a hotel nearby the majority of your activities. You can probably walk to more of those places. But if your agenda takes you all over town, location doesn’t matter — the subway can get you around town efficiently. Or cab it at night.

3) Don’t Try to Sneak In an Extra Person. If you book a room that normally accommodates 2 or 4, don’t try to sneak in a 3rd or 5th person. It can backfire. Hotel policies and fire codes may come into play. Some friends planned to put 3 in a room for 2 in midtown last spring. The hotel caught on quickly and requested they upgrade to a suite. You can always ask if a rollaway bed can be added. But because Manhattan hotel rooms are famously tiny, many double rooms just don’t have the floorspace for one.

4) Don’t Overlook Savings with Group Airfares. For New York City, 8 is considered a group on Midwest Airlines. Check out how this works. Going with a small group to NYC can be very fun and give each person more flexibility to see different things with one or two of the other gals. You can also use this deal to spend just one day in NYC if you’d prefer not to stay overnight. (You can get a lot done in NYC in just one day if you plan your itinerary well!)

    You don’t have to spend all of your Christmas money to go all the way to NYC for one day! Shop at Manhattan Fashion in Bloomington, Minnesota for a NYC attmosphere and the same huge selection of purses and accessories that you see in Manhattan! Excellent prices and great variety!

    Nice article. I was wondering if you could help me out? I have now started planning to visit New York and have been looking at some hotel reviews (in the link http://www.expedia.co.uk/destinations/north%20america/united%20states/New%20York.aspx). They are quite useful but some mixed thoughts. Can anyone recommend anywhere to stay near the center? Thanks Chris
