I don't know where else to post this so I thought this would be as good a section of the forum as any. I'm planning a weekend trip to NYC and being a poor, struggling artist of sorts, I would rather spend my money on food, clothes and entertainment rather than a lavish hotel room which I'll only be in for sleep. With that said, I also don't want to stay in a rat-hole. I've seen the outside of The Gershwin (swank!) and have heard that's it's a great option for people who want a nice place to stay without dropping a load of cash. I thought what with all the travellers and whatnot in this forum, I might be able to get some feedback. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
