Hotel Accommodations Update!

bookfair1.jpgWe recommend that you book your hotel reservations as soon as possible, in order to find less expensive accommodations during the busy holiday season.

The list of hotels below isn’t comprehensive by any means, but is a fair representation. It also includes several hotels located on the same block as the NYCIP. All rates are for a single room for two adults. Many of the hotels seem to offer an AAA discount, so when making reservations, we recommend you mention if you are a AAA member. Also note that rates in Brooklyn may be cheaper, and that Hotel Reservations Network has discounted rates at over 50 hotels in New York.
