Here are five different mid-priced hotels near Times Square, four of which are $139/night for the dates of the conference.
I've stayed at this Red Roof Inn, decent location not too far from Penn Station. Place was clean, room was decent by New York standards
There's a decent looking hotel for the same price that's a lot closer (79th and 10th Ave) you might want to check out.
Thanks Ken, I had seen this hotel but it was without the coupon.
I was really looking to share a suite. Most NYC hotel rooms are fairly small, so I'd prefer a 2 room suite. I see that Park 79 has one for $189. But I think I'll save the $50 and live with a bit of a commute.
