I booked throgh Expedia when we went last december . Cost around 650 a person and we stayed right near central park which by all accounts is a very good area to stay . You can get hotels cheaper but from looking at reviews the cheaper ones seem to be riddled with bed bugs ! The rooms were small where we were but thats what you get when you stay in a good area of new york without shelling out thousands

Id definately recommend doing it we had an amazing time and will certainly be going again

You could also try Alpharooms although I usually book direct with the hotels, find it cheaper. I'm off there (with work this time ) in June, awesome place you will love it. I'm staying the The Setai this time which looks nice (never stayed in this hotel before).

I actually stayed at that Radisson in September last year, as above great location and very cheap. Not overly massive rooms but you are only in there pretty much to kip anyway!

I did 2 weeks in Vegas for my 30th. Flew home 5 hours sleep onto another plane to Germany to see Haye fight then jumped on a train all the way to Amsterdam.

Was an amazing 3 and a half weeks.

check you are both elegible for the visa waiver program now, before you book.

Even having been arrested for certain offences and not charged can be enough to get you booted back to britain!

So best check now incase you need to get a full visa.

the misses and i went in dec for a spot of shopping, flew virgin and stayed in the marriott marquis right in the middle of time square!! 5 nights cost us inc flights around 3k

was awesome to experince it. did the tourist bit as well empire states building, statue of liberty, ground zero etc... all highly recommended.

defo use the subway system as taxi's can be expensive due to grid lock traffic at times.

I took my other half to NY back in feb for her 30th. We stayed in on the water-front in Jersey City at the Hyatt Regency (so overlooking the hudson river towards lower manhatten)

It was only a 5 minute subway ride into the financial centre or 10 mins upto 34th street or a similar time taking the water-taxi both of which had terminals within a 5 minture walk from the hotel.

Again, we did all the typical tourist attraction, empire state, statue of libery, times square, the rock, ground zero etc as others have said, it truelly is a magical place and a place that needs a good 2 weeks to see and appreciate everything imo.
