Hi...I am in the beginning stages of planning a summer 2013 trip to NYC and the Adirondaks and am having trouble finding a hotel in the city. Since I am so far ahead I am just interested in late July or early August. Probably arriving on a Tuesday and checking out on a Saturday. There will be four of us. I would like somewhere close to subway. Not directly in Times Square but outside would be ok (hells kitchen, etc...)...upper east or west side, lower east or west side, Murray Hill, Chelsea are all fine. Not too concerned with shopping but would like some budget to moderate (no more then $20 a person) restaurant options close to hotel. I would ideally like to stay in the $200-$250 price range or a little less if I can. I am wondering if nothing is showing up because its so far ahead of time or is it that the city books up that quickly? I just visited in May and we were able to find some options on a few weeks notice. Thanks for your help and recommendations.
