hi! I'm going to NYC in September and looking for a hotel near Marymount Manhattan college, where my daughter is attending school. Does anyone have a good recommendation on where to stay? I've never been to NYC so I need a bit of help here ;-) I'm going to be there for at least 2 weeks so any tips are greatly appreciated!

Hi Southwind -
I usually stay in Brooklyn, so I don't know that area well for accomodations.
But if you're up there, it isn't too far to a ton of great things, including the Metropolitan Museum. You will undoubtedly hear about "Museum Mile", so I will mention a couple of my other favorite places in upper Manhattan.

An incredible cathedral:

The Cloisters:

Way up there, but free admission with a Metropolitan Museum admission button.

I'll ask some friends about accomodations and post here if I find anything.

I was in NYC about 4 yrs ago and stayed at the Skyline hotel...corner of 49th and 10th. It was pretty good. I painstakingly (;)) searched for the website and here it is: http://www.skylinehotelnyc.com/ . I didn't search for rates or anything, but I hope that helps!

Cheers,
Katie ;)
