If you're booking your next vacation to New York City to see Broadway shows, visit Rockefeller Center, and soak up the chaos of Times Square, save a bit of money by looking into cheap hotels in Queens instead of staying in Manhattan. Hotels in Queens NY are just a quick subway ride away from Manhattan and come with gorgeous views of the city skyline, right across the river.
While many opt to stay in Queens when they're looking for cheap hotels in New York, it's important to make note of all of the unique things to see and do in the borough itself. Queens is home to one of the most famous contemporary art museums in the city. It's also the place to go for Indian, Polish, and Jamaican cuisine. With tons of Irish pubs to explore and the only dirt bike park in New York City, there are plenty of things to do in Queens. Plus, getting to Queens hotels is a snap from the John F. Kennedy International Airport. JFK is located in Queens itself, so to get to most hotels, you can hop directly on the 7 subway line and take it to your destination. There are also plenty of convenient buses, including the Q1, Q25, and Q56 to get you around town. If you'd rather not deal with public transit, hail a cab by following the "ground transportation" signs at JFK, or rent a car in Queens directly from the JFK airport itself.
If you're looking to save a little extra cash on your New York City vacation, stay in Queens, which is much more cost-effective than staying in Manhattan or the up-and-coming Brooklyn. You can also save even more with mobile exclusive deals on the Travelocity app. Head to the Big Apple today for the vacation of a lifetime!
