New York City is abundant with hotels, but with so many choices, deciding where to stay can be difficult. Focusing on great value, we chose 12 New York City hotels near subway stations. Each is close to at least one station. While most are in Manhattan, we've included a few in the outer boroughs. They are usually less expensive and the nearby subway access will get you into Manhattan in minutes. All our recommended hotels have received a good to excellent overall rating from verified guests.
Due to extremely high demand for accommodations in NYC, we recommend booking your room at least 2 months in advance. Waiting for last minute deals rarely works out in your favour in large, high demand cities.
