SOFITEL or NOVOTEL are good, if you need a French touch...but the services are not very good. The fast internet line is good, but you need your computer.

NOTE: in Manhattan , most hotels are expensive between 100 and 300 USD - but during some periods it is good

generally, it is better to stay at New Jersey or Brooklyn and take the subway - 30-45 minutes

you may check also some B and B or www.hoteldiscount.com
$100-$300 USD
