New York City

Hotel rates may seem sky-high here, and indeed they are -- New York is the most expensive city in the country when it comes to accommodations -- but rooms do sell out, so it's important to shop ahead and shop smart. The most affordable places in town have shared hall bathrooms and teeny-tiny rooms; if those concessions aren't for you, prepare to pay a little more. Below we recommend a few options at varying price points.
