    Holy shit, $109 a night for a double bed within walking distance of Times Square? How the fuck are they not booked solid 365 days a year?

      They're in the middle of trying to boot most of the people who have been living in the hotel since the 50's. Before renovations and hype. A big company invested a fuck-load of dollars.

      I expect that after it goes all the way live as a hotel, then the prices may jump a bit.
      Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
      and remember what peace there may be in silence.
      As far as possible, without surrender,
      be on good terms with all persons.
      Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
      and listen to others,
      even to the dull and ignorant;
      they too have their story.

      -excerpt of the poem called "Desiderata," by Max Ehrman, 1927.

        They also have hostel/dorm beds upstairs for less money, but you need to show your papers to prove that you're from another country. This has worked for me in the past, and would probably work for Canadians too.

            So is there a decided date? I'm going to be in NYC for my sister's graduation, but if I need to, I'd like to get my tickets set so I leave after the TD. I can afford to take a week's vacation.

              It's complicated: grew up traveling, carry a couple passports, speak a few languages.

                        Muy peligroso! We used to play this song in my old Surf & Spy band, Oddjob. Let's face it, though, the spy game is really about scoring Pussy Galore.

                        Sure, but let there be no no K-Town karaoke, you Secret Asian Man.

                          So no karaoke, but a room salon is cool?

                            As long as they have OB. I didn't know beer could be that good. Thanks, Vinh.

                              If all you're ordering at a room salon is cheap beer, they're going to kick you out, but that's ok, I might just do it on principle.

                                Regarding cheap hotels and such, why not just stay outside of the city and take the train in?

                                Wait, wait, wait. OB is cheap beer? Wow. Is the expensive beer even better? You have to understand here, I'm a complete noob when it comes to alcoholic beverages. Unless you count the ACS stuff.
