WHERE TO STAY WHILE YOU ARE IN NEW YORK

New York is a fairly easy city to navigate, so as long as you have access to a train, no matter where you are in the five boroughs you will have no problem connecting with the group. That said, each day of Ruedathon begins in Manhattan, so you will have easy access to just about everything if you stay in a hotel or Air BnB in the midtown area. 


This year, for the first time, we were able to secure a block of discounted rooms at the MADE Hotel, which is the same hotel where we will be hosting the Sunday Grand Finale Party.  The rooms are priced at $280 per night plus applicable fees and taxes. The MADE Hotel is located at 44 W. 29th Street, (roughly midway between Herald Square and Madison Square Park. If interested you can book at https://www.madehotels.com using the discount code “RUEDATHON19” or use this designated link:

Finally, if you are looking to save money, feeling adventurous, and not too particular about your accommodations, you may have luck finding an NYC-based Ruedathoner who is willing to house you through the Ruedathon Housing Swap.
