SoHo, in Lower Manhattan, may be home to some of the most expensive real estate in the United States, but that shouldn’t put you off visiting. Instead, cut your costs by staying at one of these budget-friendly hotels.

The cobbled streets of SoHo are home to two cities; during the day, it’s all street vendors, artists and boutique shops, but at night you’ll find the hottest restaurants, bars and clubs in New York City. If you’re on a budget, you might want to swerve the pricier boutiques – although window shopping doesn’t cost a thing – for some wallet-friendly excursions such as the Leslie-Lohman Museum and Film Forum, while staying in these excellent (but more cost-effective) accommodations.

Found deep in Lower Manhattan, the Arlo SoHo is an excellent base for discovering everything NYC has to offer. Each of the 300-plus rooms comes expertly furnished in whites and dark woods, the king with a full wraparound alcove and the terraced queen with some of the only outdoor showers in the city. All have an array of creature comforts as standard, including blackout curtains, rain showers and floor-to-ceiling windows.

2. Sheraton Tribeca New York Hotel

One of the true highlights of the Sheraton is the rooftop lounge, where comped light beers are served in the evenings accompanied by a cityscape including the Empire State Building and the Hudson River. Additionally, all rooms come with plenty of 21st-century amenities, such as HD TVs, super-fast internet and a large work space with an ergonomic chair – perfect for business travelers. A location within a stone’s throw of the lively neighborhoods of SoHo, Chinatown and Little Italy top it off.

Placing an onus on quality over quantity, there are just 30 guest rooms at the Mimosa, each styled with a mid-century aesthetic but featuring plenty of personal touches, such as luxury linens, HD flat-screen cable TVs and daily housekeeping. Save your dollars by stocking up on the complimentary espresso, teas and snacks at the front desk, while making your daily plans using the free wifi. If the latter seems like too much effort, quiz the knowledgeable staff on where to eat, drink and visit.
