Spending the holidays in the Big Apple is at the top of many a tourist's wish list yet precisely because of this, many hotels set their room rates accordingly, especially around New Year's Eve when rates soar to ridiculous prices. But if you can be flexible with your travel dates, the best time to get a hotel room in New York City is actually just after the holidays when all the tourists have left and there's nothing happening in town, save for cold days and long nights. And thanks to Hotel Week NYC,  which runs from January 3-15, you can score a great rate at a great hotel and not that dodgy motel in an outer borough. 

Now in its 5th year, Hotel Week was actually conceived by a travel and hospitality PR maven, Nancy J. Friedman, specifically to encourage visitors and locals to experience the city's hotel scene. (Disclosure: I've known Nancy for several years both professionally and personally.) The hotels that participate in Hotel Week are not your usual run of the mill hotel brands, but rather independent or boutique properties.

Of course, not all of these hotels are great for families traveling with small children, but most of these are ideal for families with teenagers who want, no, need to stay some place cool enough to show off on Snapchat

And if you're needing two rooms, Hotel Week will make your total cost a lot less than it would have been over Christmas.

Below is the list of hotels participating in Hotel Week NYC, along with their average rate, and how to book. Trips + Giggles also added their own personal note about which age group these hotels work for best.
