Help! Hotels/ holiday apartments in NYC?

sorry to treat you like a collective Ask Jeeves but I'm a bit stuck! I'm going to NY with friends at the end of September and we've nowhere to stay. Does anyone have any recommendations for somewhere where a weird Russian princess and her regal chums might feel at home? :\?

    When we went to New York, I did a tour of cool hotels! The Algonquin where Dorothy Parker would hang out , quipping at things and then the uber cool Chelsea Hotel where countless rock stars/ writers and assorted characters did drugs, created works of genius or died. Or some did all three!

    I would love to stay there if we ever go back..

    thanks for the tips! I love hotels with a bit of character rather than the usual chains. sadly Chelsea and Hudson aren't available for my dates but Hudson website pointed me towards a sister hotel. fingers crossed!

    Well Darhling I did hear that Central Park does a wonderful line in benches, bottles of spirits in brown paper-bags and 100 count newspaper sheets to sleep under.

    Have you tried Marriott, Hyatt, Doubletree Metropolis, Astoria?



    If you're looking for something a bit more cheap and cheerful how about the Pennsylvania? Good luck x

    Trip Advisor is a good place to ask actual Nu Yoykers! It was a great help to me when I was going to NY. Sign up and ask on the forum.
