Wandering the city streets of the Big Apple is something that everyone should experience once in their lifetime. Unfortunately, not everyone gets the chance to make this happen, especially travellers who are trying to adhere to a strict budget. Manhattan is often perceived as one of the more expensive cities of the world, and this perception is not far from the truth.

Luckily though, there is a chance to experience extreme comfort for amazing value at New York’s Hotel Penn in the heart of Manhattan. These accommodations can’t be beat in terms of cost, especially since it follows a strict “Best Rate Guarantee” policy. According to this, Hotel Penn will match the price of comparable hotels in the same area as long as you make the booking on 

But get this. Hotel Penn is currently celebrating 100 years in the hospitality industry, and they’re doing so with a bang. Starting on May 1st, if you are one of the first 100 guests to book, you’ll be staying in a room from the brand new Penn Plaza Collection for just $2.50 per night. Perhaps you think this number seems random, but it was actually the going rate of a Hotel Penn room back on the original opening day in 1919, 100 years in the past. 

Whether you utilize the promotion or not, staying in the revamped and entirely refurbished Hotel Penn is a must. Everything from the design of the rooms to the functionality of website has been modernized, yet it somehow still exhibits the timeless style of New York City. Guests are raving about these improvements, especially the self-service kiosks in the lobby for check in and check out and the completely revamped website. 

“The Penn Plaza Collection concept came about from feedback we have received over the years and re-affirms our commitment to our guests,” says Gene Nicotra, Vice President and General Manager of Hotel Pennsylvania. The team at Penn did a great job listening to this feedback and actually applied it. 

The rooms are even equipped with Smart TVs and Bluetooth speakers where you can stream your own video content and music. All in all, the hotel still holds the charm of classic New York with a modern twist. If you’re curious about the Hotel Penn of the past and how it started out 100 years ago, you can visit a room on the 12th floor that is dedicated to telling the hotel’s story. 

You won’t be spending much time in the hotel, though, since you will be staying just steps away from the city’s main tourist attractions. As soon as you walk outside, you’ll see Penn Station right across the street. Above the train station you can grab a quick bite at Pennsy Food Court and receive 10% off with a voucher provided by the hotel. Of course you’ll receive free breakfast at the onsite Hotel Penn Cafe R, but lunch and dinner options are endless in the area. 

Venture out a bit further and you’ll come to the flagship Macy’s store. You could literally spend an entire day here riding the elevator throughout the 10 floors of merchandise. Once you’re done shopping until you drop, you can take a stroll to Times Square, Madison Square Garden, or the Empire State Building.

Gene Nicotra, GM and Vice President, talks about the prime location of Hotel Penn, “As the World’s Most Popular Hotel, we are perfectly located in the heart of the city. Whether you are visiting from out of town for a tour or watching a sporting game across the street, we are happy to have host millions of visitors and look forward to million’s of additional visitors going forward.”

You can get all this – a room equipped with every necessary amenity surrounded by every major NYC attraction – for just $2.50 a night. What better way to celebrate 100 years as the World’s Most Popular Hotel?
