Yes, that is high, i suspect that it includes the hotel resort fee (i looked for the 'mandatory fee' section and didn't see it so i though perhaps the hotel has stopped charging it, but now that i see the 'taxes and fees' i'm guessing that this includes the resort fee... but unfortunately know way to know for certain until somebody purchases and reports back).
Unfortunately the majority of higher end hotels in NYC now charge a resort fee, so you may very well have to pay one regardless, but some other ideas in the area:
4* Madison Square Garden - Convention Area (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $106/nite with:
==> EVEN Hotels New York - Times Square South
4* Rockefeller Center - Bryant Park (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $113/nite with:
Free Internet available
==> CLUB QUARTERS HOTEL TIMES SQUARE - MIDTOWN
3.5* Empire State Building Area (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $138/nite with:
Free Internet in room
Free Internet in public areas
==> Springhill Suites Midtown Manhattan/Fifth Avenue
4* HOTWIRE Rockefeller Center for $108
==> New York Hilton Midtown... there is a $30/nite resort fee at this property and is most an impersonal business hotel, but it is just at the northern end of Times Square if location is most important for what you're looking for
3.5* HOTWIRE Times Square for $115
==> Ameritania Times Square
One of the above work for your needs and budget?
