I am coming in for the show on the 12th....This will be my 7th year at the beacon however the first time I will need a hotel. Also this is my cousins first time down.
So is the beacon hotel the place? after show parties? or should i just stay at a place closer to mid town?

I would suggest staying at a place close the to the Theater-just makes things a lot easier and you're where all the action is. The Beacon can be kinda expensive and there may not be any rooms left, but check. There's also the Milburn and the Excelsior, On The Ave., and plenty of others.

Good luck and have a great time!

Making travel plans for family & friends that will be going to the show and taking kids for their first look at NYC. Any suggestions? What area to stay? Drive into the city or train?

You can get a room at Comfort Inn Central Park West for $98/night on 71st street.
Its very close to the Beacon. The Beacon is at least $200.

You gotta see Times Square, Rockefeller Plaza, St Patrick's Cathedral, Central Park if is a nice day, Grand Central, and Empire State Building. Chelsea market food tour is fun if you have time. Don't bring a car. Take the train into town and then subway or taxi around town.
Have fun!

Make sure you visit Strawberry Fields, the memorial to John Lennon, at Cental Park West and 72nd Street. The Dakota is right across the street.

If you have time the American Museum of Natural History is great-I think it's at 88th and CPW, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim and awesome too-they are across the Park.

I had Milburne reservations for awhile now but decided to look around & see if I could save a little money so started shopping around I changed them to On The Avenue (suggested in this thread) & I'm saving about 200 bucks... there were a few less expensive than that but booked or not so appealing!

thanks for any points of interests suggestions too!

I was in town last weekend and stayed at the Milford midtown for (hold on to your hats) $130.00 which included all fees, taxes, AND valet parking. The base rate was $77.00/per night. There are deals to be had right now.

for out of towners, you travel in NYC via the subway, it is fast and safe as long as you stay in manhattan which is where you guys will be-2 miles via subway is about a 5-10minute ride. there is so much to see and do that thinking you want to stay near the beacon is crazy. the beacon is in a great area, but for music and clubs, you want to be around the village area which includes chelsea, soho, meatpacking district.

if u want theater and tourism, times square is where you want to be,

great restaurants and good are bars are everywhere!!!!

Not that I'm a NYC hotel expert, but I agree - you don't have to stay right near the Beacon.
Subway is great and cheap....I've stayed down around 25th street, and heck, even walked back and forth to times Square with no problem.

More areas gives you more options for hotels....

Having said that, guess I'd better go get a place for myself for the 26th thru 29th....

Can anyone offer some other places in walking distance? I've stayed at a couple w/ shared bathrooms before, but forgot the names of them.They were like 4 or 5 blocks away. Very, Very small rooms.

Me and my friend stay at Americana Inn, just by Bryant Park, about 20-30 minutes walk to The Beacon. We pay 95 USD for a twin/twin shared bath. I stayed there last year, and itīs nice and clean with a good location.

ya, I was thinkin about pull'n an al niter, but chances are I usually get "WASTED". I would just like the opportunity ti crash @4am. And I mean there is nothing betta than having to have to get out of bed at 11am to check out w/ a un-bear-able headache/hangova. And, I got the shows of 21st & 28th. I'll be the dude in the over-all's.

I always stay at Off Soho Suites in the Lower East Side. It is within walking distance of Little Italy, Chinatown, Soho, and the Villages East and West. I'm able to walk to Katz's Deli, McSorley's Old Ale House, Lombardi's Pizza, and a host of other awesome NYC establishments. Check it out if you really want to feel like you are in NYC
