If you fancy a little vacation (or staycation) after the holidays, New York City’s upcoming Hotel Week may offer the perfect opportunity.

Between January 4 to 14, more than a dozen NYC hotels are participating in Hotel Week, offering up flat rates of $100 or $200 per night for comfortable stays in some of the trendiest boutique hotels or most convenient locations around town. 

The Wolcott Hotel between 5th Avenue and Broadway offers one of the best deals on the roster, with rooms for only $100 per night, down from the regular rate of $250 per night. One of the longest continually-run hotels in Manhattan, the 1904 historical building boasts a gorgeous retro lobby with unbeatable views. The Freehand New York Hotel, featured on luxury romance hotel site Mr. and Mrs. Smith, also provides great value for visitors looking to stay close to the Flatiron district, with rooms starting at $100/night, down from a standard average of $260/night.

Meanwhile, all four of the hotels from the boutique Library Hotel Collection‘s NYC portfolio are participating in Hotel Week. Word nerds will want to stay at the eponymous 60-room Library Hotel, located close to the New York Public Library, to get their fill of rooms themed to resemble the Dewey Decimal System. Each of the 10 floors features a specific category of the Dewey system, while individual rooms further carry the theme. Stay in Erotic Literature (Room 800.001), Music (700.005) or Botany (500.004). Every single room in the hotel features 50 to 100 books relevant to the room theme.

Alternatively, Brooklyn visitors will revel in Williamsburg gem, the William Vale, which is available for nearly 50% off of its standard rate of $340 per night), with its floor-to-ceiling window views. Or stay at the contemporary Archer New York Hotel on West 38th Street in the Garment District for just $200/night.

All the fun highlights being stated, there are a few caveats: Taxes and fees aren’t included in the Hotel Week discount. And while availability isn’t exactly limited, rooms discounted at Hotel Week rates can be, especially toward more desirable dates such as the weekends; only upgraded room rates were available over my travel dates at a couple of properties, including 50 Bowery, the first Joie de Vivre hotel in New York. For others, the hotels themselves occasionally offered better discounts through their proprietary promo codes than the one provided by Hotel Week. That being said, Hotel Week rates at 50 Bowery included breakfast for two at Rice & Gold, the hotel’s “kind of” Chinese restaurant which offers an inspired dim sum menu.

All told, the Hotel Week destinations may not come at the right time or be located in the right area for your next visit. But if they are, this promotion can only work in your favor.
