Where to stay in New York City

November 15, 2019

New York: The global leader in architecture, music, art and food. Not to mention, it’s filled to the brim with iconic sights. 
In fact, the only thing better than New York City, is New York City at Christmas. Cue the holiday jingles because December transforms the city into one big, festive, winter extravaganza.
Imagine buying the perfect Christmas gifts, soaking up the post-Christmas glow during the January sales, or flying over to the Big Apple for a special occasion - because nowhere says special like New York City. 
It’s no secret that New York has a neighbourhood for every personality. Midtown is the spot for those iconic sightseeing adventures, the Meatpacking District is ideal if you like to stay out until 3am, Tribeca will send your stomach to heaven and the Upper West Side will tantalize your fantasies of that wholesome family holiday. 



With over 700 hotels and accommodation eating up the lion’s share of your holiday budget, deciding where to rest your head may just be the most important choice.

My selection of some of the best affordable hotels in the city cover different neighbourhoods, making them perfect for any second-time visitors looking to experience a different neighbourhood vibe. We also have a personal relationship with most of these hotels, ensuring they go the extra mile when taking care of any Abbotts Travel clients.


The Roger Smith Hotel



Think of staying at The Roger Smith Hotel as more like staying in a good friend’s really cool apartment. Located among the boutique hotels in Midtown NYC, this family-owned and family-friendly gem is a welcome find. Affordable and centrally located to bustling Midtown East. Space is a rarity in New York, but rooms and suites here stand out for their notable size. You’ll also find plenty of space to collaborate with colleagues or celebrate with friends, from five vibrant meeting and event venues to Lily’s Bar and Lounge and Henry’s Rooftop Bar, where the NYC skyline views are the star attraction. 


Walker Hotel Greenwich Village


Known to locals simply as ‘The Village’, the nightlife and restaurants in Greenwich Village are an integral part of the vibrant energy that draws a crowd to the neighbourhood. Drawing from the distinctive spirit of Greenwich Village and Golden Age New York City, each of the 113 luxury accommodations at Walker Hotel showcases timeless and progressive charm with Art Deco lines, sleek furnishings and stylish amenities. Guests are walking distance to landmark attractions and neighborhoods such as Washington Square Park, Union Square, The High Line, Meatpacking District, SoHo and Chelsea.


Walker Hotel Greenwich Village is running a fantastic discount on group bookings and the newly opened sister hotel in Tribeca has a great special for the remainder of 2019, with rooms starting at $195.00 per night. Get in touch to make a booking. 


The Time Hotel



A hidden gem nestled in the Theater District and just steps from Times Square offers a luxury lifestyle experience for all guests. A destination for the creative class, The Time Hotel draws inspiration from its talented neighbors in the worlds of music, theater and multimedia. Inside a secret world unfolds. Intriguing geometric artwork; a hidden lounge and bar; a surreal elevator ride to perfectly cued accommodations – the further you venture inward, the more exciting your stay becomes.
