New York City – 2017 At A Glance

Let’s face it, there is no bad time to visit New York City.  Manhattan is a good idea, no matter when you decide to come.  It just depends on why you want to visit or if you enjoy crowds or perhaps you like to enjoy a bit of peace (hard to find in this city that doesn’t sleep).  With 2016 coming to a close and the fantasies of 2017 nearing, we know you all want to get a head start booking your city escape!  But when is the best time?  That’s the question!  You can come during fashion week (oh! the clothes!), or maybe US Open (got to LOVE tennis), there is also shopper’s weekends (crowds, crowds, crowds!)  Whatever blows your hair back, we want to make sure you get the most out of your trip.  See the most economical times to visit and the days you might want to book in advance before prices start to increase!  Dates in green will get you the most for your money and dates in red signify that you should book as early as possible.


  • BOOK EARLY! ROOMS GO QUICKLY ON: Tuesdays & Wednesdays.
  • GREAT DEALS ON: Sundays, Mondays, and Fridays!
  • HOLIDAY WEEKENDS: New Year’s, Martin Luther King Day
