A friend and I are looking to book a room in Manhattan to save us a trip back to the Jers after a party. The problem with Manhattan is that even when you have friends who live there, their closets are never big enough to share. My friend Vanessa has a cute two bedroom in the East Village, but her living room can barely fit a small couch, let alone a person to sleep on it.
As such, I thought I'd try Priceline for a room. People! I could not get a room for $100 in ANY star range, in any Manhattan neighborhood. Can you believe that shit? Budget Travel recommends looking into the B&Bs, but it's not looking good there either, as they appear to be all booked up between now and for the rest of my life.
I love New York as much as the next gal, but come on, where does Best Western and Comfort Inn get off charging $250 for one night? As you can see, my rage-ahol addiction is in full swing and I clearly need to get my butt to a yoga class.
