Hotel prices in the city of dreams soar as high as its skyscrapers. For a plush, comfortable accommodation, one must be prepared to pay an arm and a leg.
Hotels can take a big bite out of your NYC budget. For someone who’s travelling to New York City on a shoestring budget, he/she should know that the city is famed for many a reason, and cheap accommodation is not one of them.
