Good luck...that will be difficult. At times during the year, hotels are about $400 + per night in Manhattan. During the holidays, at one point, it was like around $800 for a regular room per night.

There's a La Quinta hotel in Queens right on the #7 line - don't know how good it is but La Quinta's tend to be fairly decent. And it's about $175 a night.

That's not going to happen. Look for a hotel in Queens and also check out the hotels located around LaGuardia airport......I don't know those prices, but you may get lucky with the rate.......and those hotels are practically a stone's throw to the US Open.

stay a little further out and take a train ride in. Much cheaper. Also why are you staying 15 days? Nalby will only be there for 1.

Not very expensive and not luxurious, but clean and in a nice section of Manhattan, plus very close to Grand Central. Friends of mine stayed there last fall and I met up with them so saw their room. They had a suite with kitchenette.

That is an excellent part of the City - and yes, easy to get to the #7 train too.

Hey Nicofan

We're actually going to stay there when hubby runs the NYC marathon. He has to go down a day earlier then Jake and me to register, plus it's really close to Bryant Park which is where you get the buses to the starting line. I also can't see wasting nice hotel room on him. Added bonus is that with suite there is a sofa bed in living room so no need to have kid sleep in the same room as us.

An Ivan Ljubicic fan attempting to make a joke about another player's Slam success. Priceless.

Default 2 Questions?

I am going to stay at the W in Lexington anybody, know about this hotel, is it a good location for going back and forth to Flushing Medows, also for all of you have gone is the best deal just to get the "2008 Ashe Stadium Seating Prices" tickets so i can go to any court when I am there?

I go to the US Open every year, and in my experience a grounds pass is all you really need. A grounds pass is only 40 bucks and it allows you entry to every court besides Ashe. Unless your going to drop a ton to get really good Ashe seats, I don't think it's worth it.

You're wasting so much money, first on W, then on seating tickets.

It depends. The night session is a separate ticket from the day session. Usually they sell out really fast beforehand, but every night they hold a certain amount of night session tickets that they sell on site. The have a varied amount of seats, some are pretty decent, but it's first come first serve and depends on if you want to pay for whatever is left.

There's also usually lots of scalpers around outside the site selling tickets, you can sometimes grab a good deal there.

Honestly, if I were gonna do a night session, I'd want good seats and I'd buy them beforehand. I did go one night though with a friend just for the hell of it to see what was available, and I got seats like 8-10 rows back for the Blake-Santoro night match for like 180 or 200 bucks, so it's really up to you.

Default Re: 2 Questions?

If it's within your budget then I say stay there, I've never been inside (I don't think) but it's only a few blocks from Grand Central and there you can catch the 7 train which is the train to the tennis center. There isn't a whole lot to do around there at night (I mean, relatively speaking, it's Manhattan after all) but if you spend all day at the tennis center you prolly won't feel like you need to go out at night afterwards, and even if you do you're still in a fairly central location for going somewhere else.

Personally I think a grounds pass is really all you need but it depends when you're going, etc. If you're going during 1st week I really wouldn't mess with an Ashe ticket, unless you have super awesome seats, cuz there's so much action on the outer courts and you can get really close. If you're going during the 2d week, there's much less going on on the outer courts, unless you really love doubles or juniors. Even when I have a ticket to Ashe I almost never spend any time in there cuz it's just not as much fun, I'd rather be walking around scoping out all the action. But if you don't like any players outside the top 10, you're better off getting Ashe tickets cuz Roger/Rafa/the Williamses/Roddick/Blake/Ivanovic will most likely be in Arthur Ashe.

As for Ashe night session tickets, I don't usually go to Ashe night session unless somebody has an extra ticket (don't get me wrong, it's super fun, but I don't really go out of my way for it, and there's usually something equally appealing if not moreso at Louis Armstrong).
