Fabled Algonquin for just $249 per night
There are few Big Apple hotels more illustrious than the fabled Algonquin. Frommer’s writes, “This 1902 hotel is one of the Theater District's best-known landmarks ... where the New Yorker was born, where Lerner and Loewe wrote "My Fair Lady”. Elegant guestrooms come with all the luxury prerequisites. The on-premise Round Table Room offers an excellent menu, while the Oak Room hosts top-rated dinner cabarets. Rack rates at this legendary hotel run upward of $400/night but through Orbitz you’ll pay just $249!
RamadaPlaza New Yorker from $139 per night
New York’s classic Art Deco hotel, Ramada Plaza New Yorker is instantly recognizable by its huge “New Yorker” roof sign visible from many a vintage point around Manhattan. Gayot.com writes, “Guests at this Midtown lodging spin through the revolving doors to be greeted by high ceilings and huge chandeliers. When the property opened with 1,000 rooms in 1929, it was the biggest hotel in the world.” Rates at this landmark property typically run north of $250/night. Book through Expedia and you’ll pay just $139!
Nifty Upper West Side spot for $89 per night
