    Got one for ya: Leo House, 332 W. 23rd Street, Chelsea District, Manhattan. 212-366-0100. This Catholic-run hotel is open only for out-of-town guests. Once a home for immigrant women in the 1890s, this place is clean, quiet, secured, a block away from subway, cheap breakfast (buffet-style, around $10) and the two best things: gay-friendly (in the gay-friendly Chelsea neighborhood) and cheap: under $100 for a single.

    Have stayed at Leo House ever since 1998 and it has never disappointed me.

    If you do stay there, let me know how you like it.

    Peace.

    Whats your range? I worked in hotels, so I know all the good ones. The important thing to remember is that in NYC hotels... you definitely only get what you pay for.

    And sometimes not even that. The Hudson would have to be free for me to consider staying there again... Definitely style over substance. I just think if a hotel room is considered "double" or "queen" then the shower should be wide enough that you can shampoo your hair without turning sideways...

    Try the Herald Square Inn. Reasonable, close to the Macy's and subway lines. Very clean as well. http://www.heraldsquarehotel.com/

    Radio City Apartments wasn't a bad place to stay. I was in the studio and that was a bit small, so go for the 1bd if they have it.

    I've stayed at the Hudson before.. Yes.. you can swing a cat and hit all 4 walls. I usually stay at the Wyndham on 23rd and 6th in Chelsea.

    I have stayed at the Savoy in Chelsea as well.. This week i was at the Algonquin in Times Square.. I've NEVER paid for a hotel room the rate that I paid per night this week. Executive management was staying there, so I stayed there as well.

    and with the rate that was paid, i didn't get the value for that..

    I loved the TriBeCa Grand (sister to the SoHo Grand up the street), but only stay there when I can get a killer rate. That's actually one of the determining factors on when I'm going to NYC!

    Try expedia.com or hotels.com

    Hotels in NYC are a hit or miss. One time I stayed at the London NYC for $300/night and I got a suite. One other weekend, I booked at the Paramount Hotel for $300/night and I got a closet. Those two hotels are in the Times Square area.

    I've been to NYC multiple times. I stay at the Sheraton in Times Square, there are two I believe either are nice. One is the Sheraton Time Square I think and the other is the Sheraton Manhattan.

    The Paramount would be memorable. It may be pricey. Even if you don't get to stay there, go into the lobby and check it out.

    Aerider is right. The least expensive rooms in the Paramount are closets.

    CRAIGSLIST NYC. Look at 'Vacation Rentals'....where I found the above.

    I had a beautiful one bedroom on Riverside for 5 nights/ $800.........about one third of what an equivalent hotel would have been.

    The young guy I rented from moved in with his girlfriend for those days, and planned to use my $800 for a ski trip.

    He was happy and I got a great deal.

    In Montreal I got a room in a great house, in The Plateau(my favorite) for $200 for ONE WEEK. No Kidding......it was great.

    Craigslist has got a creepy reputation for its personal ads/hook-up side....

    .......but from my dozen or so experiences with Vacation Rentals, I've always been happy. I've made a couple of good friends along the way too.

    the Milburn on W 76th St & Bway is good moderate hotel, reasonably priced for NYC. So it depends on what your definition of "central " is.
