Fee said:Someone asked this question last year, and got no answer. Since its a slam, I believe the players can stay wherever they want to. Some stay at the hotels that are within walking distance of the tennis center, some stay at hotels along the Subway line, and some stay in the Manhattan area. Let us know if you see any of them.
a lot stay there but not all. it's different as well because Melbourne Park is so close to the CBD that you can walk from the hotels the grounds in ten minutes unlike Flushing Meadows.tennisman. said:Come on,surely someone who has been there before knows something?!
In AO most of the players stay at Hyatt hotel,could it be the same hotel in NYC?
This was posted in the tournament forum, in response to one of my posts. Is this information incorrect?boliviana said:I can't think of any hotels that are within walking distance of the tennis center (I live here) . . . Flushing Meadows is in the middle of Queens between two major highways and in the middle of a low-income area of mostly immigrants. Even in Forest Hills, there aren't any hotels. Great restaurants and shopping but not a hotel.
I honestly can't believe any player would stay at either of these hotels. They're in Manhattan, or at rented homes on LI. And no one walks any further then the train/subway station or a parking lot to the USO.Fee said:This was posted in the tournament forum, in response to one of my posts. Is this information incorrect?
>>>>The Ramada Plaza Hotel at 37-10 114st Queens/Laguardia, NY 11368 is within walking distance to the Open. It's about a 15 minute walk to the National Tennis Center, i think that hotel is a safe choice. However, the rates do start at 170.
The Best Western (Eden Park Hotel) 113-10 Horace Harding Expressway in Flushing, is half a mile from the Tennis Center so its within walking distance. The rates start at 129. I think it also offers a continental breakfast. <<<<
