Oh, hotels!!! I forgot.
The Bentley, which is on East 62nd and York (far east side) is a nice hotel, with a restaurant on the top 21st flor (I belive its 21) that overlooks the Queensborough bridge. Nice but a bit more of a walk to a subway than most other hotels.
The other one I recommend is the Thirty Thirty hotel, which is, take a guess, at 30 East 30th Street, half a bock off fifth avenue. It's pretty nice, and three blocks from the Empire State Building. Local delis are ope 24 hours so you can get a snack no matter what the time. I've left the hotel and walked barefoot to the delis.
Thirty Thirty will probably be the best bet. Good price too, especially for NYC hotels.
Oh, and yes, I do live here, but don't ask why I was staying in a hotel in my own city. *male prostitution* lol

LaGuardia is closest to Manhattan from waht I hear.
cough-cough Embassy Suites New York is great, I paid $150 and got a suite with a little room with couch and TV, and then another room...when I was there, a bunch of famous people were there :P. They have a bunch of restauraunts, modern design, evening manger's reception and free breakfast. and a great hotel overall.
Right across the street from Ground Zero.

Take the M60 bus. It couldn't be simpler. It will drop you off right at 125th street, then you can use the subway system to get wherever you're going.
If you use a cab, go outside where people line up for the Yellow cabs. Don't let the guys who walk inside the terminal to solicit business talk you into using their services. They may not be properly licensed and could charge as much as twice what the legitimate city cabs charge.
Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.
