Here they come now Chelsea Girls

So let's start with a place to stay.

Alex and I have been going to NYC together now for quite a few years now and every year we've stayed at the Chelsea Star Hotel. Located at W30th and 8th, the Star is smack dab in the center of midtown, close to Madison Square Garden and the Empire State Building. It's a great place to stay for those traveling to New York by train or bus because it's an easy walk even with big suitcases. We usually drive and almost always find street parking which is a huge plus.

The Star is half hostel, half hotel, and offers something of everyone. It's a super budget no frills hotel, so if you are expecting amenities, this is not the place for you. However, it is a clean, safe, and somewhat comfortable place to say in the city. They have many different types of rooms and we've stayed in almost all of them, including their 2 bedroom apartments which sleeps at least four. We haven't had a chance to stay in any of their themed rooms yet, but they only come with a shared bathroom, which is not something I'm curious about at all.

All and all the Star is a great, cheap, easy place to stay. Especially if you are not planning to spend all that much time in your hotel room.
