“If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere. It’s up to you, New York, New York”. These words by Frank Sinatra do indeed capture the essence of New York City. The most populous city in the United States, New York is often referred to as “The Big Apple.” This nickname is quite fitting as this city is known for its soaring skyscrapers (including the Empire State Building) as well as its extreme prices. New York City or NYC is made up of five boroughs; namely, Queens, Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx and Staten Island. It is also home to the headquarters of the United Nations.
As this city is known for its outrageous prices, the hotel room prices tend to be towards the high end too. The trick to finding good budgeted hotel rooms in The Big Apple is to think small. In other words, look outside the trendy areas; for example, beyond 20th street and below Times Square. It is true that some famous hotel chains do provide you with some steep discounts, but you are more likely to find better deals at the budgeted hotels. Just because these hotels offer you good bargains does not mean you have to compromise on the standards. The rooms at these hotels are clean and comfortable. The services offered are similar to the big chains of hotels but just on a smaller scale.
