New York City hotel tax is 14.75 percent plus a daily $2 per room occupancy fee. Our site lists the starting low season rack rate for each hotel, but prices rise and fall depending upon the season and demand, like airline tickets; use these rates as guidelines. Prices are lowest in January and February and highest in September and October.

All about Overnight New York

Overnight New York covers everything relating to hotels in New York City -- news, deals, reviews and the culture swirling around them.

The best hotels entertain you the moment you enter. Contemporary art, big comfy lounges, midnight bingo and movies in the screening room are a sampling of what's on offer around town.

Stay for the night, and a great hotel multi-functions at a dizzying level. Yes, you want a comfortable room, preferably with some style and a convenient location at a price that won’t result in bankruptcy.

But what we love about hotels is the opportunity try on a new life. Choose with care, and you can feel like a rock star or a start-up star, a president or a princess, if only for a night.

Overnight New York is completely independent with no ties to the hotels you see on this site. Its creator Terry Trucco is a long-time travel writer whose stories and hotel reviews have appeared in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Travel & Leisure and other publications.

We visit hotels anonymously and always pay when we eat and stay. Our reporting is honest and unbiased.

Think of Overnight New York as a best friend who knows the city and susses out where you’d like to stay -- and where you want to avoid -- as well as the perfect hotel for a romantic dinner, drinks after work or putting up the in-laws.

We've reviewed more than 100 hotels and are constantly adding and updating reviews. Our blog delivers hotel news and posts several times a week. Check in often!
