Plan a trip to the big city for New York City Hotel Week

New York City has a reputation for being particularly special during the holidays—and it is—but that also means you have to share the finite sidewalk space with crushes of tourists. A middle-of-winter visit, when the crowds disappear, is more enjoyable in many ways. And an added bonus is that there are steep hotel deals happening to encourage travel. NYC Hotel Week is taking place for stays taken through February 12, 2023 (and, yes, we know that’s longer than a week). Eligible hotels are 23 percent off, including Readers’ Choice Awards winners the William Vale and the Chatwal. The promotion is part of a whole set of deals, with discounts for NYC Restaurant Week and NYC Broadway Week happening at the same time.
