  1. These boards are a godsend -- thanks to you all for your input. I booked at La Quinta Central Park when a room with 2 beds became available, and although I'll continue to check periodically, chances are that we will be at L.Q. for our pre-cruise nights. We both love to walk and there is much of interest within walking distance from there. Windstar's site now shows the ship leaving from Manhattan. Major thanks to you two who pointed that out.
  2. THANK YOU!!! Good news! I thought we sailed out of Brooklyn because that's what the itinerary says.:confused: Manhattan is better for many reasons. Still working on the hotel. Am considering Fairfield Inn/Times Square and La Quinta/Central Park, which is a better location for walking to museums near there, also walking in the park. Some hotels are already fully booked; others have no availability of rooms with 2 beds. If anyone knows a good possibility up towards Central Park, I'd love to hear.
  3. Thanks so much for your interest and suggestions. I am a senior and have AAA. It would be nice (but seemingly unrealistic) to have hotel cost under $200 per night. I spent time on this yesterday and found some appealing hotels that were fully booked; others had no availability of rooms with 2 beds, which we need. I reserved (cancellable/refundable) 2 nights at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Manhattan/Times Square, 330 West 40th Street, cost $569.27. If there are better options I'd love to hear about them. Of great importance is a location good for seeing sites/sights by walking. Is there a hotel shuttle from LGA to Manhattan hotels? I've used those in Europe and like them. Once I am sure of our hotel, I'll inquire of the concierge and see what they suggest. Appreciatively, Freda (aka Xoe)
  4. My niece and I need a 2-night hotel stay October 21-22 before boarding Windstar's Star Pride at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal on October 23. We'll fly in from Seattle to LaGuardia late on October 21. Any help on logistics will be hugely appreciated: ideas for hotels, how best to get to our hotel and then to the ship. Ideal would be a Manhattan location from which we can walk to sites/sights, if affordable and manageable for transfers from the airport and to the ship. Thanks!
