We(me and hubby, daughter and boyfriend and other daughter and her husband(their honeymoon cruise) are cruising on the Explorer on December 13th.
The daughter whose on her honeymoon is driving down on December 11th as they want to take a day to see some NYC. They are on a budget. Can anyone suggest a budget friendly hotel that would be close to public transportation into NYC, as they don't want to drive in and then paying huge fees for parking.
The rest of us will be flying in late evening of the 12th and the honeymoon daughter will be picking us up. It would be $400 cheaper for us to fly into JFK or LGA. Would there be any hotel that would fit the budget friendly daughter in one of these areas?
you do NOT want to stay near JFk..and really not LGA except maybe in the Marriott or laGuardia plaza...MANY airport hotels over there are used to house homeless people..not that it's a bad thing, but well....not the best choice..
PLUS you need to figure in the cost of getting FROM JFK/LGA to Cape Liberty. You'd need a car service...try www.carmellimo.com
Define BUDGET FRIENDLY. actually those words..and December in NYC should not be used in the same sentence...
what is the budget?? Also...i don't think that the honeymooners want to trek all over creation to pick you guys up at JFK or LGA ....they will need to budget at least 2 hours to get there.....depending where they're staying (alllowing for traffic, accidents, and just plain goofy stuff...prob won't take that long..)
i have to think about this for a bit...and i was sort of ill this AM so i have medicine head and i probably am not making any sense....
