Why July 4th is the Best Weekend for NYC Hotel Deals
As locals leave New York City over the Fourth of July weekend, out-of-towners will have much better luck getting a taxi and restaurant reservations — and low hotel rates — in the city.
We’ve found plush, 4-star hotels dropping rates as low as $159 per night. With free events all over Manhattan and few locals around to attend them (combined with ultra-low hotel prices), the weekend of July 3-5 is one of the best times to plan a visit to the city. The only other time we see rates this low in New York is during the depths of winter (if you prefer a parka to flip flops, but who does?!?).
While you’re enjoying the sun and the celebrations, take advantage of other discounted classic New York experiences. We recommend noshing on hot dogs at a Yankees game vs. the Tampa Bay Rays, visiting the Theater District for an Off-Broadway show and taking a speedboat thrill ride through the NY harbor.
Plus you’ll be able to catch the Macy’s 4th of July Summer Fireworks Spectacular. While you can see the sparks from all over the city, we think it’s best viewed from a rooftop in the city. After the festivities, relax at the 4.5-star The New York Palace — available for $279 per night.
To get these seasonally low rates, search Travelzoo hotel deals in New York City by date (July 3-5).
Many of these deals are limited-time rates and Top 20® deals, which sell out quickly. Book sooner rather than later to solidify holiday plans and start planning your festivities before others catch on to these great deals.
