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.
It’s easy to find reviews on our site. If you know the name of the hotel you want, type it into the Keyword Search box and hit GO.

Terry began reviewing hotels when she worked as a foreign
correspondent in Tokyo and London. Since moving back to New York
she has reviewed dozens of hotels in New York, Los Angeles, San

Overnight New York offers stylish, unbiased reporting. We’re
independent with no ties to the hotels we review. We visit each
hotel anonymously, have a meal, check out the rooms, scrutinize the
surroundings and always pay the bill. We don’t take freebies.
We’re based in New York so the site is updated constantly. When a
lobby gets renovated or rooms look ragged, we report it. And since
knowledge is power, we make it easy for you to click onto each hotel’s
official site as well as crowd-sourced reviews posted on sites like Trip
Advisor and Yelp.
