Warwick Hotel in New York City for $179 a night. How'd I do?

Will be in the city next month. Am able to get into the Warwick for $179 a night. Is this a good price for this hotel? Any one have any suggestions for something better?

Although $179 for the Warwick is a good rate. You can get a better rate for a 4* hotel on priceline.com. If you go to BiddingForTravel.com you will see the going rate and what hotels are coming up. BiddingForTravel.com is a fantastic site for traveling. We are going next week to NY and got a 4* for $95 a night. We were thrilled! Good luck.

That is a very good price for the Warwick--they have been charging $300 and up since their renovation. Great location and nice hotel.

Staci, which "4 star" did you get? Since New York hotels do not have official star ratings, the number of stars that Priceline gives them seems very suspect to me. I choose hotels more by location and quality of the place itself. I really worry about where Priceline will decide to "stick" us. In any case, I'm curious what you got for $95? Opinions, I'd stick with what you have. The Warwick has been extensively remodeled and is a very nice old hotel in a good location.

Below is a list of the 4* hotels that have been gotten via Priceline (as reported by people on BiddingForTravel.com).

The Warwick is on the list (Midtown West zone on Priceline), but unless I missed something in scanning the list of winning bids, the Warwick hasn't come up since at least June. So it's likely that if you bid on a 4* hotel in Midtown West, you'd probably end up with one of the other hotels listed.

I haven't stayed in any of these hotels myself, so I can't comment on their quality relative to the Warwick.

Other than a couple of winning bids in the $130s and $140s, all of the reported winning bids in the last month for 4* hotels have been $110 or less, with many of them in the $80s and $90s.

Anyway, here's the list:

W New York
Waldorf Astoria (managed by Hilton) Intercontinental The Barclay New York
Drake Swissotel
Grand Hyatt New York
Millennium UN New York Plaza (formerly a Regal Hotel)

Morgans Hotel

Intercontinental Central Park South Warwick Hotel
NY Hilton & Towers
Marriott New York Marquis
Westin Essex House
Renaissance New York
Sheraton Hotel and Towers
Millennium Broadway

The Stanhope, A Park Hyatt
The Regency, a Loews Hotel

Anyway, if you try Priceline, you pay your money and you take your chances. If those other hotels in Midtown West (if that's specifically where you want to stay) all look like reasonable alternatives to you, you could probably save money by using Priceline. If any of them is objectionable and you're not a risk-taker, you might be better off sticking with the Warwick.

Have a great stay in New York, whatever you decide to do!

Darn it, two formatting errors in my previous response:

The second line under MIDTOWN EAST should be split:

Waldorf Astoria (managed by Hilton)
Intercontinental The Barclay New York

Also, the first line under MIDTOWN WEST should be split:

Intercontinental Central Park South
Warwick Hotel

Friends of ours from England stayed at the Warwick this past spring and they were very happy with it.They travel quite a bit, all over Europe and Canada, and have been to the States a lot...so I think they know a decent hotel ... I would go for it~

Stayed there Labor Day weekend. Very nice and in a great location. You'll be pleased.

Thanks for all the great comments. For those who mentioned Priceline, I would love to give it a try for those great prices but I'm a little leary since I wouldn't know which hotel I'd be getting, and I've heard some people complain that some hotels give you the worst rooms they have. Because of that I think for this time it'll be the Warwick.

I love the Warwick. There's a great little bar across the street, incidentally.

Quikbook.com has been offering it at $159 a night for weeks.
