    I am going to NYC to visit some medical schools up there before applying and was wondering if there are any cheap hotels that are centrally located..like near NYU or Times Square. Does anyone have any advice as to where I can stay?? Thanks!!

    I stayed at the Sheraton Manhattan it was soooo nice, but steep it'll cost you (minimum) $269 US dollars/night.

    cheap and nyc? you must be kidding. there must be a hostel somewhere though...

    in my experience, it's going to run you at least $150 per night. nyu has been known to use la quinta, murray hill inn, and ramada.

    if you have a mastercard, see if you can use frequent-charger points to get a room at the marriott courtyards.

    word to the wise: check in early. last time i was in manhattan i went to my hotel at 3 am (don't ask) having late-night check-in guaranteed and they proceeded to tell me that they had overbooked and sold out as well as all their affiliated hotels in the area. they also told me that this was standard procedure, especially on the weekends, for nyc and that the only available room they had for me was in NEW JERSEY. in true new yorker fashion i pretty much woke up everybody in the hotel by arguing [loudly] until they fixed the situation to my liking. ah the joys of med school trips.

    $150 is what is considered cheap for manhattan and you'll probably be around midtown which is just 10-15 minutes tops on the subway. La Quinta is nice. Portland Hotel and Herald Square are not so bad either.

    I stayed at a Comfort Inn, just off Times Square on W. 46th (i think). It was small, but nice, quiet, and best of all, $119/night. They also had complementary breakfast, wireless internet, small gym, and a free-use office/printer/computer. Definately would stay there again!

    when I interviewed at manhattan schools, I stayed at the Metropolitan Hotel (www.metropolitannyc.com) on the east side at 57th and Lexington Ave for $99/month. 3-star hotel, definitely a good deal.

    Yeah, try Priceline in conjunction with www.biddingfortravel.com. Since NYC is such a popular location, lots of people will bid and post their results there, and you can figure out the exact hotel you'll get in many cases. A few months ago my family came out to visit and we got them a room in the Marriott in Times Square for ~75% less than the price they quoted us over the phone. It definitely beat trying to cram everyone into our apartment for a few nights.

    Not at all. It was clean, nice updated furnishings, a big TV, nicely tiled bathroom with chrome fixtures, etc. Great water pressure too :) Great for the after interview massage....
