  1. Just booked the Hotwire 3.5* option which turned out to be the Holiday Inn Times Square (exactly as AaronJB predicted) for $381USD (2 nights 6-7 Aug 2019). We're quite happy with the result, thanks for all the help! 😀
  2. Planning to book our hotel today actually. Looking at Hotwire (using the link provided of course). Narrowed our search to the Manhattan areas AaronJB suggested above, 3.5+ stars, and 4+ user review scores. With all the resort fee/tax inconsistencies I find it tricky to compare pricing between search results...
  3. Followup question (sorry for so many Q's): which Manhattan search areas should we limit/filter ourselves to be relatively close/accessible to the more popular Manhattan tourist attractions and dining?
  4. Thanks for the prompt response. Our budget is flexible, but unfortunately our dates are firm. I'll try the BiddingHelper.com tool as well as the RateDrop service you mentioned. We can hold off a few more weeks (if need be) to see if rates drop. We're Canadian and I find between the USD/CAD exchange rate, hotel taxes, and resort fees the prices seem rather high. Anyway, we're still researching attractions and dining (so many decisions....), also wondering what would be the best option for getting from and to the EWR airport?
  5. We (2 adults) are planning a trip to New York City 6-8 Aug 2019 and trying to find the best available price for a nice hotel room. We are looking for a good/convenient location for visiting tourist sites (like 911 memorial, broadway, times square, etc), and good quality/reviews (e.g. 4+). Budget wise it would be nice to find something for about $160/night all-in if possible? We would appreciate any advice and/or suggestions , thanks in advance! Also, is this the appropriate place to ask for other NYC trip advice related to dining, attractions, and getting around?
