Need help finding a hotel in NYC!

Hey all, I'm taking my parents and my fiancée and her family to New York for New Years and I need help finding a hotel close to Times Square from December 29-January 2nd. 3-4 star trying to do between $200-$300/night. I've been looking but all I keep seeing are places in NJ or places that are $1,000+/night.

Any help would be great, thanks!

This. I know Marriott sells out 2 years in advance. Anything near times square will be bucks, and anything IN times square will be impossible to book. $200-$300 per night? You are kidding yourself. I would be surprised if you can sleep on a subway grate for $300 a night in NYC over NYE. Try something as far downtown as possible near Wall Street, although I don't think it will be any better. Stay across the pond at the W in NJ, and take the train in, that way, you can show your people the REAL NYC experiece...of standing near times square, getting shoved around by 1 million people.

I was just in NYC for the Macy's parade. We stayed at hotel Mela, it was $254 a night really clean and the staff was great! But best of all it was on 44th an 6th.

Well, I found a couple places for $450/night, but I'll probably just end up staying in NJ. I'm finding hotels that I can reserve, but the problem I'm having is when entering the number of guests... when I say there are going to be a child in the room (fiancee's little sister) it changes to no availability... but I can book it no problem if I don't add her. Would it be a problem if I didn't put the exact number of people staying in the room?

She's 9 years old. I've been looking all over, the only thing I've found is about 40 minutes north of Times Square... not trying to drive that far every day

Or you could watch the whole thing live... in HD... buck naked in your living room... with a bottle of champagne on one side.. and your honey on the other.

Not to mention, your resolution to save money would start off well.
