We are looking at a 5 night stay in New York. Our budget does not allow us to stay in the summer or early autumn, so we are looking at the last week of March. Yes, we know the weather can be changeable then, but it's not the bitterness of January or February and it seems March in the previous years has had some quite warm weather towards the end. Our max budget is about £650.
The Seton hotel seems to offer quite good rates and seems to be in a good location with good reviews. Expedia is quoting us £600, including direct return flights with Virgin LHR-JFK. That price does not include transfers or breakfast. That is also in a room with shared bathroom.
Is that good value for that time of year, or could we do better? Better hotel? Any thoughts on the Seton and how much are we looking at for breakfast outside of the hotel? I know airlines often have New Years sales, but would we be booking a bit too late if we waited until then for a March 2014 stay?
