Perhaps it would suffice as a pied a terre.


I clicked on: "View more listings like this" and the next property on the list is a mere $15 million, quite a bargain, no?

The Parker Meridien is reasonably priced for Manhattan (I paid $280 for a double) and located in a pretty upscale part of Midtown (57th & 6th). The IKEA-esque rooms and mirrored lobby were reminiscent of a three-star European business hotel. My one reservation is that it lacked a bar. Otherwise, a good place to crash for a night or two. I've heard the W Hotel in Times Sq. is a happening place for the twenty-someting crowd. I couldn't get a weekend rez there.

For budget i recommend Howard Johnsons plaza hotel and if you want to do it good do it Ritz, best service in town.

I'm probably missing a few points. It is however located next to The Museum of Sex, so yeah, there's that...

I hope you did not pay for this!!!! One should refuse, it will teach them hospitality lol!
And if the management doesn't negociate, u pretend u will sue them, and it works hehe...

Wow, you guys don't skimp on your hotels. Anyway, since money looks like no-object to this thread, some trendier places are,

I also highly recommend this website for unordinary hotels worldwide.

The rooms at the Muse are big by NYC standards (which is to say moderate or small compared to other North American cities). Both rooms my family were put in were very awkwardly shaped making the extra space a moot point. The service was also very underwhelming as well. Check out the W if you want to stay Midtown. The SoHo Grand is fantastic but pricey (and IMO better than their sister property the Tribeca Grand).

We've always had great results by going to and getting a list of hotel room locations and prices. I'm sure there are many other web site that can do the same.
