Ten Time Cruiser:
We moved from NYC not too long ago. I strongly urge that you book with a good hotel. NYC hotels can be infested with bedbugs. No kidding. There is a nice Hampton Inn on E 35th within walking distance of Penn Station. There is also a nice Holiday Inn off of Harold Sq, Either of these is less expensive than the Times Sq area. Just check the mattress when you get in your room.
Thank god when we cruise the Miracle we're going to take Greyhound the same day of the cruise, we live in philadelphia so it's a two hour ride for us,,,we will be catching a super early bus ride into the city....So no bed bugs for us and plus the bus ride is 48.00 round trip for the both of us total...not bad...
