    Hi All,
    I am hoping you can help. I am taking my girl scout troop to NYC this June. There will be 7 of us total. We looked into VRBO but right now they are not allowing short term rentals in NYC. I looked into hotels and the cheapest is $550 per night for the 2 rooms we would need. I have RCI week points and II units I would trade for something or I would rent if someone has a timeshare in NYC they would rent to us for 4 nights for less than $550 per night. We are on a budget. Thanks

    Before the mods .. alter your post. Wyndham has the Midtown 45 resort. While they have some 2 bdr units ... they might be limited to 6 persons. The Studios sleep 4 as do the 1bdr units. You would need an adult in each unit. RCI resort.

    FYI -There are less expensive hotels in NJ ( right across the river ) - and then you take the PATH tube (ie: the NJ - Manhattan subway )
    I have not done this - but know 2 different families that did & were happy with how it worked

    Check out some of the serviced apartments. We've been staying at the Radio City Apartments. They have studio, one bedroom and two bedroom units.

    I live in northern NJ, just outside NYC. To use PATH, you need to be in Hoboken or Jersey City.

    If you go a bit farther north, you can stay in Edgewater and take the NY Waterway ferry across to Manhattan; the ferry system has buses that meet you in Manhattan and take you to midtown for free. There's a brand-new Courtyard by Marriott right by the Hudson River and I believe they have a shuttle to the ferry. There's also a Homewood Suites in Edgewater and I think they have a shuttle, too.

    Just remember to factor in the costs of taking the ferry--it adds up fast. There are also NJ Transit buses that go right by the hotels that can take you in to the Port Authority on 42nd Street.

    Book 2-3 dorm style rooms at the Westside YMCA asap as placeholders, which can be cancelled if something better materializes.

    Does anyone know how the tax on NYC lodging works such as percentage? Is there a difference between the tax charged on lodging in NYC and that of other places in NY state?
