For those of you interested, I just noticed a HOTWIRE rate of $126 to $129 for a 3.5* midtown east hotel next summer. The amenities are restuarant, fitness, internet and business center. THis is probably either the Roosevelt or the Tudor House Hotel, but it also could be something else. Anyway, for a person who can make definitive plans for that far in advance, this might be a pretty good deal. Addendum: The above rates were seen thoughout July, 2009 and includes some rates as low as $114, e.g. July 12 to 17th.
