While New York City does have a reputation for being pricey, you can score some good deals if you're really smart about it -- which is one of the reasons why the Big Apple secured a spot on our list of 2016 Budget Destinations. For just one example, Triumph Hotels is putting stellar hotel rooms within reach with it's one-day 24-hour anniversary sale, offering up to 35 percent off 2016 stays at its seven outposts throughout Manhattan.
You have just one day -- Thursday, February 11 -- to slash best available rates by 30 percent for one- and two-night stays, and 35 percent on stays of at least three nights. But the discount can be applied for any getaway between February 12 and December 30 this year. Plus, guests receive a sweet treat upon check-in. Here's a quick look at some of the options:
Want to be in the thick of all the action of Midtown Manhattan? There’s The Iroquois, which has quick access to the subway and complimentary amenities like WiFi, morning coffee and tea, and afternoon beverages in the lobby. Rooms are outfitted with marble bathrooms, Molton Brown toiletries, and Frette towels and robes. Pre-discounted rates are from $259 per night.
Smack dab in the Theater District is the Hotel Edison, ideal if your itinerary is Broadway-heavy. (Fun fact: The hotel appears in a scene from “The Godfather” and, more recently, its Rum House shows up in the 2014 “Birdman” movie.) On Tuesdays and Fridays, don’t miss out on the property’s complimentary wine and cheese reception with live music in the lobby. Best available nightly rates are from $195.
For a hipper neighborhood, check out The Evelyn in NoMad. A short distance from the famous Flatiron Building and Madison Square Park, the hotel offers free perks like WiFi, lobby coffee and tea, and early morning pastries. Its newly renovated Art Nouveau-style rooms have thoughtful touches like USB ports in the headboards, C.O. Bigelow bath products, and walk-in rain showers. Rates are from $199 per night.
At The Cosmopolitan in TriBeCa, find a Starbucks on the premises, along with complimentary WiFi and walking tours of the Financial District. Rooms here come in a variety of styles, including ones with a loft and double bed. This outpost also has the distinction of being one of the first hotels ever to feature telephones in its guestrooms. Nightly rates are from $189.
Other participating properties include the Flatiron’s Hotel Chandler, Hotel Belleclaire on the Upper West Side, and Washington Jefferson in Hell’s Kitchen.
