Going to NYC between now and March 31st? Hotel deal.

Saw this on Groupon. DOn't know how long this will last as a thread on Fodor's. But I'm not selling this. Just thought it might help some people coming to visit.

Don't know the hotel - but it seems to be about a 10 minute walk to the subway - and a total of 25 minutes (walk plus subway) to get to Grand Central (per hopstop).

The hotel site says 5 minutes to Manhattan by car - but only in the middle of the night. Their distances/times are on the optimistic side.

There are far better deals on travelzoo.com for hotels in Manhattan. This hotel is not in a good location for subway and the price is not that great.

Well, it's only $139/night plus they give you a $20 dinner coupon. I thought that was pretty good. 5 minute walk to subway and 5 minutes into Manhattan with subway. Wouldn't take a car into Manhattan anyway. Why would you? But each to his/her own!

More than 5 min walk in a not great spot. You can stay at the Mela for. $129.

The MELA queen superor rm for $129 is a fantastic bargain as well- that hotel is at Times Square and gets great reviews. Thanks mclaurie.

If you check the hotel on tripadvisor.com, you'll see that the first review has a warning about the Groupon offer (difficulty using it). But there are a number of good reviews of the hotel, as well.

Thanks for the tip on Hotel Week! Just got the Pod 39 for $100 a night, saved $85 plus tax for 2 nights!
