3 More Days till NYC!

April 11, 2010 2 comments

My NYC trip is coming up soon, this week to be exact!  I originally had a hotel booked for 4 nights at $200 a night (my AAA discount raised the price by 10 cents…lol).  Yep, that is a steep one, but apparently all the hotels around the area are averaging around that price.  So I guess it’s not that bad.

Just now, however, I decided to try my luck again and check the prices.  Everything went up to $250 a night!!!  So, being kind of depressed since this trip was going to cost me over $500.00, I searched around, did some tinkering, and went PRICE NEGOTIATING!  My new hotel:

Grand Hyatt New York, 4-star Hotel, right in the dead center of Manhattan! It’s right in between the Grand Central Station and the Chrysler Building!  Right now, the rates are $350 per night!  My rate? About 1/3 of that price!!!  WooT WooT!!!  =)

And just for kicks, here’s an awesome video of a flash mob at the Grand Central Station
