For those coming in from out of town, if you don't have a hook-up in the New York City metro area there are a bunch of different options for hotel accommodations. From youth hostels to five-star and everything in between, you can find something for as little as $60 per night - the quality of the bed and proximity to the city is up to you. Our suggestion would be to make it a vacation while you're here. It's New York City, you're gonna have a good time!
