Scoring a New York Hotel Discount Hotel Deal is rather easy, partly due to a vast abundance of competing hotels.
Using the Name-Your Own-Price option on priceline is just one way to slash your hotel rates by 60 percent or more.
If you don't care about the quality and/or amenities, you can get a conveniently situated hotel room in New York City for $30 a night or less.
Even luxury accommodations at five star New York City hotels can be had for $150 a night or less.
For other overnight options, scan craigslist for local sublets, vacation rentals, housing swaps, or live-work situations in your chosen area.
You can save even more money on a New York City vacation package by booking your flight, hotel, and rental car all at the same time.
To maximize your savings, plan your trip on priceline.com at least two weeks in advance.
Taking advantage of priceline's promotional features can also lower your airfare by as much as 40 percent.
For instance, you can get a round trip flight from San Francisco to New York City for less than $225, even without a package deal.
To get started on your New York Hotel Discount package, simply
visit priceline, search your desired dates and destination, then
click the "Name Your Own Price" option.
Beware that certain rules apply to naming your own price on priceline.
For example, no changes can be made to your itinerary, no part of your payment can be refunded, and you have to be flexible regarding times of departure.
Also when using the Name-Your-Own-Price feature, you do not get to choose your specific hotel, just the star rating of your hotel.
