You may want to look at Eastgate Tower hotel . Huge room with kitchenette. Short walk to grand central station.

Also try nyinns.com which is the home site for 3 budget hotels, all of which are located in Manhattan. They are VERY basic, but great locations, clean, and your own bathroom. I've stayed in all 3 because each is in a totally different part of the city. They are all under $200 a night

The last few posters have some good suggestions for budget hotels, but on Marathon weekend, they are probably already booked, and charging much more than their normal rates.

Another weekend does make the most sense and if you can wait until after new year's holiday than the cost will be substantially cheaper. Plug in different weekend dates in Kayak or Bing, to get an idea.

You guys are great! Thanks for all your help. We haven't decided what to do but like you said, if it's still expensive we might just postpone our trip;-)

You're right about one thing--changing your weekend. I've been to NYC for the marathon more than once. But you're wrong about rates not changing. Sign up for travelocity's travelzoo notices. I see incredible deals there all year, but you're getting near the holiday season, so ???.

You might also look at hotels in Hoboken or Jersey City in New Jersey -- they'll be cheaper and it's an easy PATH train ride across to Manhattan (Hoboken also has great dining and nightlife options).

If you go to the "calendar view" at www.betterbidding.com, you can see what hotels have been won for what price the weekends you are considering.

No one has suggested an apt? Many won't rent for only 2 nights, but some will. I rented in early December last year for $175/night (3 nights). Agencies are easy but more expensive -- I found mine on Craigslist, but you do need to be careful.

BAD IDEA. Most short term apt. rentals are illegal or scams.
