We're flying into JFK Thurs for the Mule show in the park and leaving Fri morning and was wondering what my best bet for a room would be, I'm thinking of staying in Queens near the airport to make it easier on us Fri morning and just taking a cab/train to Manhattan and back on Thurs. This seems like it'd be easier than trying to find a place near Central Park. Any thoughts or advice?

You should try www.tripadvisor.com You can find alot of info there, good and bad. Staying in a place around Central Park is definitely gonna cost ya big $$$. Your probably better off staying in Queens near the airport. Im sure it wont be cheap, but not nearly as much as staying near Central Park.

Hope this helps Enjoy Mule!!

Try the Millburn. It's near the Beacon 73-74th? Something like that off Broadway. Supposed to be reasonable.

You could probably also stay in Midtown which would mean a short train or bus ride to the park.

Also, you can access Central Park from either the Upper West Side or the Upper East Side so if you do some searches of those areas you should find something reasonable. the Upper West Side is most likely more reasonable. Try to stay in the 70's.

It's a bit of a haul from Queens' LaGuardia Airport to the Park. A cab will cost you about 15-20 bucks. Roundtrip, that's about 30-40 bucks to apply to a Manhattan hotel.

Here's the link to the concert venue and it includes travel info.
http://www.summerstage.org/

And you can go to http://www.nyc.gov/portal/site/nycgov/ for NYC info. If you look around on that site you should be able to find everything you need.

I think its the Offsoho hotel, great location, nice rooms I think we paid 150 a night in march and it had two rooms and kitchen. $10 cab ride to Central park, China Town, little italy all at your doorstep, lots of bars in area and safe at night

I paid $185/ night for the Millburn in April. All the taxes brought it up some but I guess that applies everywhere. It was fine and just a few blocks from the park.

I read about this place in an airline magazine:

http://www.thepodhotel.com/

With some of the rooms, you share a bathroom, but that really cuts the cost.


It's located at 230 E. 51st Street--Midtown East.

FYI - rooms in NYC are a little on the higher side this week and next week with US Open in town. Lots of folks come in for this two week event.

Prices probably go up with the holiday, too.

DON'T stay "near the airport in Queens" if you're talking about JFK. Not a good idea.

JFK is serviced via the A train (subway). When shopping for a hotel, just be sure to get one near that line. The A will take you all the way from Central Park West to JFK with no interruptions.

Unfortunately, I concur with someone else who commented that it'll be very difficult to find an inexpensive room on the 6th. Don't make the mistake of opting for a $150 room in the middle of nowhere when $200 will get you something in Manhattan. For one night, it's the only place you wanna be.
