I am travelling with 2 friends to NYC for 10 days from October 2nd 2013. We are all celebrating our 40th birthdays and will be travelling together for the "whole NY girly experience". I am overwhelmed with choice on where to stay. Our budget is max $200/night each ($600). Two can share a queen bed. I think we want to stay Downtown so we are in the heart of what NY has to offer. I would love some accomodation advice to get me started. Modern and quality would be good! Many thanks everyone.
