New York City is known for notorious hotel rates year-round. If you can fund a sub-$300 room at a good hotel, you’re pretty much golden.
Interestingly, this weekend, Hyatt seems to have some fantastic rates across the city, which, for NYC standards, are almost outrageously cheap. We’re talking an average of between $100 and $250 a night, which I very rarely see for a Hyatt property in Manhattan. $100-ish for a Hyatt-branded room in downtown NYC? That’s dirt cheap.
For example, the Grand Hyatt New York is $160 a night, and the Andaz 5th Ave is $230.
Hyatt 48 Lex is $170 a night, while the Hyatt Place is $109.
The Hyatt Times Square is $179 and the Hyatt Herald Square is $135.
The Park Hyatt is $618 a night, which, for this hotel isn’t exactly “unreadable.” Rates traditionally appear in the $900+ range.
The Andaz Wall Street, which I’ve stayed in before and absolutely loved, prices in at $135 a night. I’ve never ever seen it this low.
Coincidentally, this weekend is also home to the New York Times Travel show from Friday through Sunday. It’s at the Javitz Center, a few blocks down from Penn Station, so if you want to attend, and need a great room in the city, Hyatt may be the best bang for your buck. You can play with the discounts a bit, too – the standard price, AAA, AARP and government rates all come in at roughly the same price for each hotel, plus or minus a few bucks.
I’ll be staying at the Hyatt Herald Square for $135 a night, though it’s worth noting I was originally booked at the Park Hyatt with a cash and points rate. Since the non points and cash options across the city were too good to pass up, I decided to cancel this reservation and move over to the Herald Square property instead.
