NYC Mid Budget Reward Hotel
24th June 2022 at 20:02BenM
I have around 90k points and was looking for a good value but stylish hotel in central NYC. Does anyone have any recommendations please?
Thanks!24th June 2022 at 20:07PJJ
Perhaps you better say where the 90k points are
It would help24th June 2022 at 20:32Tariq
Since the message is in the IHG subforum, I’m going to guess IHG.24th June 2022 at 20:34Travel Strong
Stylish may be a stretch for 90k in NYC. When I wanted to stay on points I ultimately chose the Staybridge Suites nr times square to at least get a *slightly* reasonably sized room, fridge, breakfast, and basic gym. But it was nothing special.24th June 2022 at 20:38NorthernLass
IHG has crazy points and cash prices at the moment. What’s coming up on your dates? How many nights do you want? If you’re prepared to stay out of Manhattan and travel into the city for sightseeing etc you’re likely to get a much better deal.24th June 2022 at 20:55davefl

Unfortunately that Staybridge is no more, there’s a Vocco on the street behind where it used to be, that’s probably the ‘stylish’ option.24th June 2022 at 21:01BenM
Yes it’s IHG! I’m also seeing not much come up for 90k in May next year. Would like everything to be walkable. Maybe I should have said I’m there for 3 nights. Possibly I could pay cash for one of the nights if I have to?24th June 2022 at 21:04NorthernLass
What dates in May? You can get big differences in pricing, e.g. week days/weekend and I think there’s an American holiday at the end of May which will push prices up.24th June 2022 at 21:08NorthernLass
May 1st to 3rd, you can get 2 nights at the Voco Times Square which might be alright and is certainly central, otherwise you’re looking at HI and HIE. Cash prices are pretty horrific. I’m not booking many IHG nights at the moment because they have totally lost the plot on pricing!24th June 2022 at 21:22BenM
Looking at 6-9 May next year. Thanks!
Yes everything looking expensive!24th June 2022 at 21:28NorthernLass
If you can find another 25k or so points (or do a points plus cash booking), you can get 2 nights at the IC Times Square, which would be a much better option that HI/HIE/Voco. But personally I would give IHG a miss at the moment unless you really want to get rid of those points.24th June 2022 at 21:49BenM
Thanks very much!
I also have 3 nights in Washington where I could spend the points but I guess reward prices are the same there too24th June 2022 at 22:36BenM
Can you please recommend a good cash value central hotel instead?
