To all the fellow ACGA 2002 Annual Conference Attendees,
For anyone interested in alternative accommodations for the ACGA
conference this summer, I present a list of hostels and budget hotels in
the city. Now is the time to start thinking about rooming arrangements
because the hostels and budget hotels get booked early for the summer
First of all, the ACGA has reserved dorm bunks on Columbia’s campus and
there was an email circulated several weeks ago on this list with more
Next is the list of hostels around the city:
- Hostelling International’s NYC hostel is fairly close to Columbia and
can be reached at Hostelling International - New York
891 Amsterdam Avenue
New York, NY 10025-4403
Phone: (212) 932-2300
Fax: (212) 932-2574
The HI costs anywhere from $29 to $40 depending on how many bunks are in
the room and whether or not you are a member of HI.
-The Chelsea International Hostel is nice (I have stayed there twice and
had a fantastic time chatting it up with people from around the world), it
is in a nice neighborhood, and close to the subway lines that take you
right on up to Columbia. It costs anywhere from $27 for a bunk room to
$60 for a private room with a double bed. Contact info:
251 West 20th Street
New York, New York 10011
-The Herald Square Hotel is a “budget” hotel located near Macy’s in Herald
Square. I stayed there for a night once and it seems to be a nice place
and accommodating for families.
19 West 31st Street
New York, NY 10001
Telephone: (212) 279-4017
Toll-free reservations: (800) 727-1888
Fax: (212) 643-9208
The prices range from ~$65 for a private room with shared bath to $160
for a quad room with 2 double beds and a private bath. There are good
restaurants, shopping, and Broadway shows within a short walk. Train
lines are nearby.
- In addition there are scores more of hostels in Manhattan.
http://www.hostels.com/us.ny.ny.html is a good place to start and has
oodles of links to other places to stay.
http://www.ny.com/hotels/budget.html may also provide some good
information about budget hotels in the city.
Good luck and I hope to see you all in New York in July!
