eating and drinking ourselves silly in and around Times...

Where do you recommend staying, preferably with a great view, in Times Square during Thanksgivings weekend with a budget of $150-250 a night? No wives, no kids we're just a bunch of guys in our mid 30's who got weekend hall passes, and we plan on eating and drinking ourselves silly. What drinking and dining establishments should we visit? We also plan on seeing a 2pm Spamalot one day. Where do you suggest getting tickets? Thank you.

You might want to check out the hotels in the financial district, the Millenium Hilton, the Embassy Suites and the Ritz Carlton Battery Park. They have some good views and since the area is away from the usual midtown holiday hubbub, it may be available and a lot less pricey. It will put you within a reasonable distance to the hipper downtown areas for eating and clubbing.

The Manhattan Seaport Suites might be another good option. Not sure about any views there but also decent downtown location and it was recently renovated. Make sure you get renovated rooms though.

Hope you realize your budget is very low for this time of year in NYC. ;)

If you do manage to find a room for your budget and still want to eat in Times Square, Virgil's Barbecue is great! Recommend reservations though for the holiday weekend. You have to call them directly for reservations...can't use opentable.com for this place. This babecue joint should make you feel right at home...casual, not that expensive (especially for times square), and great food!

The Bar at the royalton is one of the hippest places to drink near Times Sq. The hotel is on 44th st just east of 6th ave. It is a long bar/lounge with marvelous ambiance.

My husband and I are also coming to NYC for NYE, we are staying at the Club Quarters, you may want to try calling them as they have great packages for NYE. WE have stayed at the Midtown location and it was great in terms of location and price...nothing pfancy, just a nice place to stay which is all we needed. We are still deciding on which place to go, as there are many many choices...good luck and Happy New Year!!!
