If you don't mind living in a hotel away from Manhuttant, you will save 50% and more at Parc Hotel. This hotel locates in Flushing, two blocks from Main Street Subway Station. # 7 train takes you to Grand Central Station in 30 minutes.
This hotel is modern, clean, friendly and comfortable. It is not a big hotel and does not have a business central but Wifi is free and good. If you have to work, bring a laptop.
Next door is a big condo with shopping and lots of restaurants to chose.
stayed for three nights while at a conference. Within walking distance of Kaufman Astoria Studios, Museum of the Moving Image, the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts, the Astor Club, shopping and restaurants. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are small, perfect for two and nicely appointed. Would definitely stay again.
When I was there, the restaurant was not open as yet and that would be a nice addition. Regardless, a great hotel.
We recently stayed here for two nights but easily could have stayed on for longer. Upon check-in, the staff went the extra mile to give us a room with a view of Manhattan when they really didn't need to.
The room was great: clean, new, minimalist but functional and modern. Previous reviews here complained that the mattresses were too hard, but I suppose it's all subjective, because they were absolutely perfect for us - honestly, the best mattress I've slept on in a hotel in the longest time. Hotels usually have the lumpiest, softest mattresses, so this firm one was a definite relief.
The water pressure in a hotel shower is usually one of my deciding factors and I'm happy to report that the water pressure in our room was strong. There isn't really any bathroom counter space, but it was certainly enough - like I said, minimalist.
Other pleasant surprises:
- Great complimentary breakfast: I certainly didn't expect hot scrambled eggs, sausages, and toast! To me, they had all the basics: simple but just enough.
- Hotel's proximity to SEVERAL subway stations: it's just around the corner from the 21st Queensbridge station on the F line. Honestly, not even a 5-minute walk, and two stops from Manhattan. We also walked down to the Queensboro Plaza station on the N/Q/7 line - it was maybe 10 minutes but it was only the pouring rain that slowed us down! - and on another occasion we walked further south, 15-20 minutes to the G line into Brooklyn (Long Island City-Court Sq station).

Friendly staff and a convenient shuttle to and from the airport! The rooms are clean and spacious. We were able to get a good rate both on Expedia as well as later calling the hotel directly (I added an extra day at the end of my trip). The Magna restaurant is wonderful. Great food, good prices. Over all, a great experience and we will be back!
