Where to stay in NYC?

Sandar the mag and I will fly into NYC, Monday the 11th, getting there about 10pm at LaGuardia.

We have a meeting the next day at 160 Broadway. Then we'll play tourista till departure, Saturday the 16th.

I went to Expedia and typed in NYC hotels and am completely overwhelmed.

Can y'all give me a hint where to stay? After the meeting I'm sure we'll do some cultural stuff (read: wife=shopping and I really pray I don't have to see a play, or musical, or some such stuff).

Also, where shouldn't we go? Keep in mind that I'm a simple South Tejas country boy. BTW, I know I can't bring my pistol, is a small (less than 4" blade) lock blade knife ok?

Re: Where to stay in NYC?

Thanks to Hector (Falcon3552) I and the Mrs spent a lovely evening with Griff and Sandy this past Friday evening. Hector, the Steaks were fantastic as was the hospitality. I haven't seen Greg since CCR 2003, way too long, THANKS AGAIN!

Re: Where to stay in NYC?

Grif I have stayed at the Sheraton, Hilton, Royalton and a couple of others. The way I have always found a great price is on Priceline or Hotwire. Stayed at the Hilton for $99 per night and the Sheraton for $120. I will PM my phone number if you want me to walk you through it.

Yeppir, Hector cooks a mean steak and the personal guided trip thru and around NYC was most excellent.

It was great to see you again, John! Much fun was had.

Y'all won't believe how quiet it is out here on our land!!!

Thanks, Scott, Hotwire is what we did. The hardest part was to figure out which part of town to stay in. We stayed in Midtown and hung around mostly in the south. Duh. Oh well, excellent subway system!!
