View Full Version : Temporary Art Hovel Needed!

December 3rd, 2004, 11:44 AM
I am looking for a Manhattan hotel that would cost UNDER $100 a night for two adults. I have been on many websites and after a while I get overwhelmed and have no real idea of what would be a safe bet. That comes from reading customer reviews. I can read 5 reviews on the same hotel and each review is radically different from the other four.

I am satisfied with bare-bones rooms. Heat, private bathroom with hot water and a door that locks is all I want. And, of course a location that does not require a "commute" into the heart of Manhattan artworld.

I appreciate any assistance. I am planning to present my artwork to the galleries in Soho and environs. I have minute funds and may need to be in the city for 4 - 6 days. So, a relatively cheap place is needed. I may have to carry canvases, so the bridge and tunnel ordeal would be too traumatic for me!

I plan ahead. I'll be doing this in the early spring. Right now I am holed up, surrounded by 26 canvases! Again, thank you for your help in any way. Ken

A double at the Carlton Arms runs $95 a night for a double with a private bathroom and $80 with a shared bathroom. The hotel is on 25th Street, a few stops from Soho.


Do you have appointments at the gallery? I've never heard of someone having to bring a canvas instead of slides.

Something like this, perhaps?

People also rent out their apts for short periods of time on craigslist. Try here (http://newyork.craigslist.org/sub/) or here (http://newyork.craigslist.org/vac/).

I too, doubt I'll have to take canvas, but I've learned to plan for the unexpected.
