This seems to really be a tough nut to crack in Manhattan date wise. I split with 4 nights in Jersey City (also through the BB PRICELINE link), but wanted to spend at least the last 2 nights in Manhattan at a 4* in either MTE, ESB, Chelsea, Times Sq or Hells Kitchen. Started bidding at $120 for ESB and was, not surprisingly, rejected. Continued to add zones and free rebids in $5 increments and ended up with the NY W Hotel on Lexington Avenue. Great location for what we wanted. I know that the place can seem a little trendy, but we are pleased - and will try to live up to the trendiness :) Used the BetterBidding PRICELINE link.
