That actually sounds like a good idea. Or, perhaps staying in a hotel closer to the airport. Savings on both cab fair and possible cheaper rates than Manhattan.

Well, I finaly convinced her to go for the shared bathroom! I am not one for staying in hostels, unless in another country. You can find private rooms for not much more money.

If I was goingto be there longer than a weekend, I would consider Queens.

Hotel Belleclaire. With shared bath, around $120/night. With en suite bath, $150/night. They do tend to be 'no vacancy' so book early.

The Gershwin. "essential" room, $110/night

Everytime we go we stay @ the Davinci Hotel in manhattan. We usually pay anywhere from 130-150 a night. Nothing fancy- just a small botique hotel, but GREAT location, safe & clean.Davincihotel.com
