Sorry if this has been a question that has been asked over & over again (just looked on the last 8 pages of the forum & couldn't find any relevant information...)
I'm planning to visit NYC at the end of November, early December for about 4-5 nights, but I'm hoping to book the flight and/or hotel within the next 2 months for my girlfriend. I've spent a long time surfing the internet to find the best deals, but they've all quoted around at least ��1000 (I'm hoping to stay at the Millenium Hilton). I've looked on this website and have noticed that some have managed to book for half that price and have booked through the Hilton website. Is it cheaper to book 1-2 months before rather than 8-9 months? Is the Hilton website the best place to book?
Also, I'm keen to take my girlfriend to the Rockefellar Centre for the switching on of the xmas lights. I've read that it takes place around the first week of December? Other websites have yet to be updated & still display last years events! I'd be very grateful if someone could find out the date for this as I will be booking the trip around this event.
