Open minded and likely using points for the stay. 25-50K MR/night would be fine.

The midtown Four Points is decent, and there's a newer one on 35/10 which is a bit further west but walkable to many attractions & shopping. I've had some good economical stays at Four Points Chelsea, too.

If you want to splurge (since it's your first trip) I'd go for a W, though. Are you solo?

Be sure to check paying with $ too - several are under $200/night this time of year.

Id concur with the advice above. The two central Four Points (and the Sheraton TriBeCa) are goodish value and in convenient locations to enjoy Manhattan.

Pump up the budget a bit and you have the W Union Square which is perhaps a bit nicer, but it depends what youre looking for.

What is the Four Points Downtown like? Scored a 96USD/Night deal for mid February.

The rooms are absolutely tiny. They are clean and functional though and its a good home base for the area.

Perfectly good 4 points. Rooms are tiny - even for NYC, but staff is nice. For $96, if you'll be out of the hotel most of the day, I'd totally stay there again.

There's nothing splurge-y about a NYC W they're all total dumps. The St. Regis or Chatwal might be more appropriate splurges, and at 60k if he's using points is much better value relative to the cheaper options.

The RI Midtown East has been our go-to for NYC for the past 3 or so years. Very good every time. Rooms are spacious by NYC standards, manager seems to be on top of the place.

Others nearby:
The Lexington (right next door to the RI Midtown East): Beautiful art deco hotel in need of a complete gut and has needed a complete gut for 10+ years. Rooms can be tiny, some aren't too bad. Housekeeping & service is spotty at best. HVAC unpredictable. F&B is an avoid at all costs -- there's a nice bodega across the street.
IC Barclay -- This used to be our main hotel until the renovation. Yes, the old design wasn't trendy & hip, but it was still very comfortable, well-maintained, and service was good. Only been back once since the renovation. Not a fan. Prices got a healthy boost post-reno as well.

RI Times Square -- Should be called RI Bryant Park, not Times Square, but that's a good thing. Busy hotel, rooms are a bit smaller but serviceable. Location is great and it's much quieter than being in the middle of Times Square. I've been staying here for 15(?) years now. The RI Midtown gets my first vote, but if that's not open, I'll often take this one instead.

I recently posted in the old SPG thread, but since there hasn't been much response I figured I'd try again here:

I'm looking for a NYC hotel (SPG/Marriott) for a one-night stay on Saturday, February 23. I'll arrive at JFK at 5:20pm on a Saturday and will fly out of ORD at 4:40pm the following Monday.
Haven't yet decided when I'll fly to ORD, but probably late Sunday afternoon (I guess LGA would be the most practical option?), so I'll have about 24 hours in New York.
I've seen most/all of the touristy stuff in Midtown/Manhattan, so I'd like to stay in an area that has more "regular" life. Ideally some place that's not 100% hipster.

Where would you stay?
I'm willing to pay up to 200$ for that night, but I wouldn't mind paying much less either. I'll be traveling alone.
I've stayed at the W Times Square and the Westin Grand Central in the past and both were a bit "meh". Would be great to find something more modern.
I'm also open for staying in Brooklyn or so if there is something interesting to see there.

I want to stay one night in New York and one night in Chicago. But the Chicago hotel would be beyond the scope of this thread.

Stayed at the Westin Times Square a couple weeks back. Had to be in the area due to meetings (otherwise I avoid Times Square like the plague). First time staying there in about 5 years.

First proper upgrade I've gotten as PPE in a while (non-suite but high floor, nice view and big room especially by NYC standards -- and compared to earlier in same week at Ten Arts New Orleans where I got the wrong room type and stuck in the middle overlooking the hotel interior it was a nice change).

No lounge but offered breakfast instead, declined for points. Very convenient to Subway to get uptown. Our corporate rate is exempt from the destination fee so no view on that.

Only pain is the stupid Marriott Q4 promo didn't give me credit for a new brand.

Anyone have good recent family stay experiences they would recommend? We are thinking of popping down for 3 or 4 nights mid-week, mid-March during Ontario school break. I usually stay Essex House or Ren Midtown for work depending on meeting locations, both seem like they could be fine options, but wondering if anyone has any better family (2 kids, 2 adults) options they like.

Essex house has a 1-bedroom suite available for 300k for our dates, but could be open to adjoining rooms they are accessible somewhere.

Doing a tourist few days, so I'm not too fussed about Manhattan locations as I picture us on the subway around the city quite a bit.

TIA

T.
