AKA Wall Street
AKA Wall Street is naturally located in New York’s financial district in Downtown, a few blocks away from the famous stock exchange street. The four-star apartment hotel in the luxury class is thus primarily aimed at business people, so here there are often good prices to be found for those who are on a city break in New York on the weekends.
With that said, AKA Wall Street is not a cheap hotel, far from it, but the quality in relation to the price is very good. The hotel is housed in a lovely and venerable building. The apartments and suites are stylish and modernly furnished.
Facilities include a 24-hour front desk, fitness center, business center, and awesome rooftop terrace. At the reception you also have access to concierge services, should you need assistance with anything.
NobleDEN is a bargain if you want to live close to Little Italy and Chinatown in Manhattan. The hotel has only 54 rooms and is rated with four stars. The rooms are neat, with modern decor and stylish bathrooms.
NobleDEN does not have many facilities, other than a small business center, a simple lounge with dining, as well as a beautiful roof terrace. What speaks most in the hotel’s favor is that guests get a lot of quality and comfort for their money.
The service is also generally good, in addition to the hotel being located in an exciting part of the city, with many affordable eateries close by. You also get a short distance to two metro lines.

Tips on finding cheaper hotels in New York
Although New York is a fairly expensive city, it is quite possible to (relatively speaking) find decent hotel prices, even in Manhattan. Here are some facts and tips you may have in mind when planning your trip:
- Hotels are usually most expensive in December.
- Next to December, hotel accommodation is usually most expensive in early autumn.
- Avoid traveling on the weekends where the major events take place, such as the New York Marathon.
- From early January, to about mid-March, is usually the cheapest period.
- July and August can also be affordable.
- Room rates are often lower on weekends than on weekdays, especially at hotels that cater to business people.
- In general, Uptown and Downtown are somewhat less expensive than Midtown.
- The chain hotels often have good offers if you travel out of season. This is because the chains are better equipped to adjust prices in relation to demand, than individual hotels are.
- Be careful when booking hotels “at the last minute”, although prices may be lower. You risk having to choose expensive accommodation because the best hotels are fully booked.
- The booking sites can have very good offers on hotels in New York, and it pays to follow when there are promotions underway.
