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. If you’re looking for a hotel in a particular neighborhood, want a place that’s hip and allows pets, or crave a spa and free WiFi, check the proper criteria. For a master list of all the hotels we’ve reviewed, click Hotels A to Z. And if you don’t see the hotel you want, check in again. We’re adding new reviews every week.

New York City has more than 200 hotels in its five boroughs, and we’ll review as many as we can to help you choose. We’re independent, with no ties to hotels, booking agencies or travel agents. We pay when we eat and stay (and never mention we’re writing a review). Visit us often; we’re adding and updating reviews all the time.

About Us

photo of Terry Trucco Overnight New York was created by Terry Trucco, a travel writer whose hotel reviews have appeared in numerous publications including The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune, The Wall Street Journal and Travel & Leisure.

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 Francisco, Miami, Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Montreal and the Caribbean and has written extensively about the hotel industry.

She also writes about design and decorating, important facets of a good hotel. Her stories have appeared in House Beautiful, Real Simple and InStyle.

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.
