Out of curiosity, How much is everyone willing to pay for the hotel? Considering it is New York and it is summertime, so rates will be pretty high. Just wanted to get an idea, how much I should be looking at.

I shopped hotels in New York for August 4th -7th and the lowest rate I can come up with for a branded hotel (like a Radisson, Sheraton, Hilton etc) in Manhattan (which is where I assume everyone would want to stay) is nothing less than $179 per night for those days. If anyone knows anything cheaper, let me know.

I recall that you could get Metro cards that would allow you to use the Subway and Bus System whenever you wanted while you were there, I think they were like 17 bucks. The cool thing is that they were good for a year, we should look into that.

Airport hotel will no doubt be cheap but one of the worst areas to stay in if you are going to stay in "New York". We all know we will be getting plastered somewhere in Manhattan, and once you are IN Manhattan, there are so many options. Airport hotels will be very inconvenient.

I'd really prefer to fly, but if the prices stay where they are, screw it. I'll take the discount bus from Chinatown, BOS - Chinatown, NYC; $20 round trip. I'll book a seat for my axe if I can. Only thing, it needs to be secure in my hotel room also.

Exactly what I'm thinking..... but the catch is subway fares to/from the airports. I say we abuse the hell out of the airport shuttles...

Dude, are you using hotwire.com? Orbitz.com was showing a few on Manhatten for like $150 before taxes...
I did see a Springhill Suites by JFK (I believe) for like $129 a night, and if we can cram in like 5 people to a suite that'd be nice and cheap...

There is a rollaway bed in Nosedive's future.

Also, how JFK is what 2 hours from EWR? How would the people arriving EWR feel about having to make that distance?

Well right now I dunno who I'll be flying on if I do come.

If I fly Alaska and use my miles to upgrade each way...I'll be into EWR obviously.

If JetBlue has started the expected service to JFK...I could be flying JetBlue to JFK. Everyone thinks they will announce PDX-JFK soon...And if they do...I might fly JetBlue, and save a trip through SEA.

As with most meets, people tend to pull out nearer the time. I feel that some of the people from ther countries (not the USA) will pull out (I myself may be one of them if i can't afford it).

USAirwys757 and I are gonna start to team up to plan things, and hopefully we can firm up numbers a coupple months or so before the scheduled meet.

My suggestion would be this:

Myself or USAirwys757 start calling NYC area hotels to inquire about group rates. Once members buy they're airline tickets, and show us they have they're airline tickets, we get rooms at this hotel. This makes it easier to keep costs down for all of us. Obviously we can't be quite like the Avsim conference and get an airline sponsor....yet Smile Maybe if we make this an anual thing, and it gets somewhat big enough...we could look at expanding it a little. But for now, let's try to get the real members to commit. By real members, I mean members that will hold to they're word, and show up. I'm almost a definate yes myself.

Hey, if we can get a group rate, that's great, but I'd prefer to stay in Manhattan, so I have no problem doing it on my own if most want to go for "just this side of the Bowery". Right now, I'm about 90%, so keep me posted.

Thanks,

Myt332, wedding conflict? Tell her you can't marry her that day because you've got an a.net meet to go to.

I'm about 95% sure I'll be there--I was going to come out in April anyway, so I'll just postpone that trip and do it in August. If these dates don't look like they're going to move, I may jump on a $270 fare I found on Delta this afternoon. It isn't as though there's nothing to do in NYC if the meet doesn't happen.

Logan, we can always see what happens with flights before we worry about bringing axes, I guess. I may see if I can hook up with Smulyan or Tim Price for a lesson while I'm there, though. Will keep you posted.

Please use the original thread, planning a meeting in two different threads will only result in confusion!
Ok Who's Down For A NYC Meet? (by Usairwys757 Feb 22 2005 in Non Aviation)

Of course you guys are welcome to start another another thread when the first one gets too long (difficult to access for members who use a dial-up connection).

I will try to attent the meeting as well but can't promise anything at this time.
