There are several places in the Chelsea and Flatiron District you can stay while you are attending the festival. We have listed some suggestions.
OUR ROOM BLOCK RATES ARE AT THE FOLLOWING HOTELS
HILTON GARDEN INN! Situated close to the evening party at manhattan ballroom and a short 10 block walk through Chelsea and the Flatiron district to CHELSEA STUDIOS for the day workshops, this is a great hotel. We have a great rate for DOUBLE BEDS at this hotel that sleeps FOUR. Double Beds are difficult to find closer to the festival.
Please use the mindframe "SET IT AND FORGET IT" and book today so you can lock in at that rate, then in OCTOBER you can LIVE IT! October is super busy season for NYC Travelers and all travel sites will show you that this time is in high demand, so prices will be higher than what NYC-ZF2017 Group Rate will be providing. Best time to book is a couple months out. So Book it now and SET IT AND FORGET IT cause you can also cancel it later.
HOTEL PENNSYLVANIA! Situated about an 8 minute walk to CHELSEA STUDIOS where the day workshops are held and a 9 minute walk to the Manhattan Ballroom. The Hotel Pennsylvania may be the right fit budget-wise for you. This hotel is one of the oldest hotels in NYC, so expect an older decor for some rooms. THey have large rooms and some newly renovated rooms. Some people think the hotel is haunted, but that just adds to the fun of your stay. Because these rooms are in our room block they are checked over by management to make sure they meet standards. This hotel sits directly across the NY Penn Station Train Station for convenience. We have the following types of rooms booked at Hotel Pennsylvania:
CLASSICS (not recently renovated)
- Superior 3 Twin Classic $189
(3 to a room and all will get their own bed)
- Superior 4 Twin Classic $199
(4 to a room and all will get their own bed) This room is very large and you can even bring some aerobeds if you wanted to fit more people.
PENN ROOMS (recently updated NEW)
- Penn 5000 Club King sleeps 2 $179
- Penn 5000 Club Two Doubles sleeps 4 $189
OTHER OPTIONS FOR HOTEL STAYS
CHELSEA SAVOY! This simple budget hotel is on a lively Chelsea corner surrounded by restaurants and galleries, a block from the subway and 2 blocks from Madison Square Park. The straightforward rooms have minifridges, wooden furniture, cable TVs and WIFI (surchage). Some rooms are in the interior and lack windows. A continental breakfast is included in the rates. Call the hotel to find out the best rates. Again the earlier you set up the rooms, the better pricing you will receive. You can always cancel later.
GET THE APP!!! - HOTEL TONIGHT - Download the App Hotel Tonight on your phone. This APP has overflow inventory of places in NYC before the weekend. Some of the prices are truly amazing and can not beat it. Because our venue is considered midtown and chelsea there are so many places that you will find with great deals on this APP 1 or 2 days before. TIP: Reserve a refundable hotel a couple of months of weeks before the festival. Then two or three days before the festival check this APP and see if you can get better pricing!! Just check to see how many people can fit in the hotel room. Once you are in NYC it is so easy just to take the subway uptown and downtown to any of our venue locations or act like a New Yorker and CAB it!!!
SENTON HOTEL The Senton Hotel has been one of New York City's finest hotels since 1978. The hotel is in the heart of the wholesale district located in a Landmark Building and a couple of minutes walk to such sites as the Empire State Building. Not the greatest hotel in terms of cosmetics and etc. But it is so cheap!!! Last year many festivl attendees stayed here as the rates were about $30-$50 per person split between people.
