Where to Stay in Times Square

Book A Guided Walking Tour

This post is about how to choose a hotel in Times Square.

We list budget, moderate and luxury hotels along with room prices.

If this comment posted on our NYC Travel Tips Facebook Group sounds like you, then you’ve come to the right place!


Overview

We've looked at over 70 Times Square hotels and broken them down into price ranges: budget (under $200 per night), mid-range ($200 - $300 per night) and luxury ($400 - $600 per night).

The prices listed are based on the cost of the least expensive room for two people (typically a standard Queen or King). 

times square at night

We looked at prices from three times of year (Low Season, Shoulder Season, High Season).

Within those brackets, we looked at mid-month prices for the following months:

  • January - Low Season
  • October - Shoulder Season
  • August - High Season 

We did not look at prices for major holidays like Christmas, New Year's Eve and national holidays when prices are at a premium.

Average NYC Hotel Rate

The prices listed do not include NYC occupancy tax of 14.75%.

We also do not include resort fees or facilities fees that may be added to your stay in our price brackets. We do, however, note if a hotel charges such a fee. 

We do note when breakfast is included!
