New York Hotel Discount Deals

Scoring a New York hotel discount is rather easy, partly due to a vast abundance of competing hotels in New York City.  

Using the Name-Your Own-Price option on Priceline is just one way to slash your hotel rates by 60 percent or more.  

If you don't care about the quality and/or amenities, you can get a conveniently situated hotel room in New York City for $30 a night or less. Even luxury accommodations at five star New York City hotels can be available for $150 a night or less.  

For other overnight options, scan craigslist for local sublets, vacation rentals, housing swaps, or live-work situations in your chosen area. 

Taking advantage of Priceline's promotional features can also lower your airfare by as much as 40 percent. For instance, you can get a round trip flight from San Francisco to New York City for less than $225, even without a package deal. 

You can save even more money on a New York City vacation package by booking your flight and hotel at the same time. You won't need to rent a car in New York City. Public transportation is optimal here. 

To maximize your savings, plan your trip on at least two weeks in advance.

To get started on your New York hotel discount package, simply visit Priceline, search your desired dates and destination, then click the "Name Your Own Price" option.

Beware that certain rules apply to naming your own price on Priceline.

For example, no changes can be made to your itinerary, no part of your payment can be refunded, and you have to be flexible regarding times of departure. 

Also, when using the Name-Your-Own-Price feature, you do not get to choose a specific hotel, just your preferred star rating.
