Hotel Information for Gala AwardsSeptember 2, 2011 --
We've been asked about hotels for the Awards Gala on September 13, 2011. This year, since it's a first year event, we did not get a room block. However, since I am traveling to New York from Cleveland, I did some digging around for my own arrangements.
The closest hotel appears to be the Empire Hotel, about a block away. Rooms run $450 and up, and going fast, so book soon.
If the Empire Hotel is not available, your best best is to try any of the hotels in Midtown (40s to 70s) or Times Square. Any of the major travel sites can help you search for hotels by area of New York, or search by address. The address of the venue is 1855 Broadway, New York, NY 10023.
Here are some hotels to check that aren't too pricey (by New York standards - remember hotels are expensive in New York at peak times):
Holiday Inn Midtown - 57th Street
Manhattan Club Suites
Jumeirah Essex House
Hilton on West 57th
Sheraton New York Towers
Hilton Garden Inn Times Square
Marriott Marquis on Times Square
Hampton Inn times Square
I've stayed in most of the above hotels at one time or another, and they are all a decent place to lay your head.
From some of the above hotels in Midtown or Times Square, you may want to take a cab or arrange for a towncar if you have a group. Some people may not mind walking -- but for me personally it would not be a comfortable walk from some of them, especially at night. But it all depends on your appetite for walking. Cabs are easy to get in Manhattan and it would be a short cab ride.
