New York’s 7 Best Affordable (and Stylish!) Hotels

Finding an affordable hotel in NYC that's also design forward doesn't have to be like finding the holy grail. New York has never had so many great options to sleep in style without breaking the bank, especially these days as many properties offer sweet rates for those eager to travel again. From the heart of the city to Brooklyn's Bed-Stuy, we've rounded up our favorites here. (Insider tip: many hotels offer the best available rate when booking directly through them!)

The Nolitan
Perfect for those who want to be in the middle of downtown’s buzzy action. And when you need a breather but don’t want to miss out, many of The Nolitan’s Queen rooms have balconies perfect for people watching.
Location: Nolita
Rate: starting at $115


The Marlton
This beautiful 1900s building in the heart of Greenwich Village was once a mainstay for Beat Writers like Jack Kerouc. It’s quite possible that staying in one of their 113 small but incredibly plush rooms will inspire your own “On the Road” adventures.
