NYC Hotel Taxes vary by location, and it ranges from 13-20%. It's an accumulation of New York State Sales, NYC Sales and Room Occupancy Taxes.

Since you're checking in at a hotel in Manhattan, you'll definitely get the highest tax rates. I don't understand how the taxes are applied from nyc.gov's explanation, but here's the site.
