Safe & Quiet New York stay for mom & daughters on tight budget

Jump to last reply

I'm taking my 2 teen daughters to New York in July (going to VA for a wedding and couldn't pass up opportunity for a chance for them to see NY). One daughter has high functioning cerebral palsy, so she can walk, but we will have a wheelchair as she falls a lot when she is fatigued (which I'm sure is easy to accomplish in New York)

Because I don't know the city, I don't know what is a safe area. Also, I have a heart condition and will need to get sleep at night so I really would love a place that is not super noisy all night (some of the hotel reviews are frightening).

I know a lot of people are probably saying New York is not for you if you want quiet and inexpensive, but we don't care about daytime noise, just middle of the night stuff. Also, I have saved for a year just to get us to the wedding, so while I wish we had more for New York, this is probably the only opportunity I will ever have to take my girls and they are SOOO excited.

I would appreciate any help I could get. Must see's? Best times to see them? Hotels that will be in safe area, accommodate 3 plus a wheelchair, and not break the bank (which seems insane when I say around $200-250 a night...since that would get me a luxury suite where I live). Any money saving tips would be great on tourist stuff since the hotel is eating up the whole budget.

I tried a lot of sites, but I can't do a bidding site since I need 2 beds and it doesn't seem like that is an option. I so appreciate any help or advice you could give. Thank you!!!
