By Ilona Kauremszky

Q: My husband and I are planning a first trip to New York City in early June and we are wondering if you can suggest any mid-range and inexpensive hotels? We are first time travellers and a little weary about picking from a book. Any tips you can give us would be greatly appreciated.

A: Often when we think of New York City images of Park Avenue with its swanky boutiques and homes of the rich and famous come to mind. But these days, visiting New York has gotten easier with plenty of venues offering discounts for the budget conscious.
