New York hotels are SO expensive!
This is a little affordable lower manhattan secret:
Off Soho Suites Hotel New York

I have many friends that stay here regularly. Many of the suites have little kitchenettes so you're not stuck eating out everynight, though NYC is full of delicious and fairly healthy cheap eats. Especially the downtown area. I beleive there is a previous (long) thread on this. Some suites require that you share a bathroom with your neighbor.

There are tons of affordable bed & breakfast inns in Brooklyn, way better than staying in NJ or Philly.

A weekly metrocard will get you all around NYC and the outer boroughs for next to nothing 24 hours a day.

I have friends that have stayed here before and didn't complain. This is also in lower manhattan, in the Bowery.
Bowery's Whitehouse Hotel of New York
Downtown Music Gallery and the Bowery Poetry club are just doors down. Whole Foods is down the block, even better a really great all organic Food-Coop is on 4th St just on the other side of Bowery, and you can gaze at the former CBGB's when exiting the building everyday.

The White House is a world of difference from the notorious Sunshine Hotel on the Bowery.
I have a friend that lived at the Sunshine for 7 years, and lived to talk about it.

These are certainly not rough neighborhoods, two luxury hotels have just been erected near both hotels that I have mentioned.

Shall I dare say, both are considered to be very happening neighborhoods?
Unless you're a jaded NY'er like me, you would feel different about that statement.
The Bowery Hotel (rooms start at $500/night) across the street from the White House
Hotel on Rivington (rooms start at $550/night) 4 blocks east of Off Soho Suites

Craigslist also has many weekly and daily sublets available too:

Hey there,

I'll be at the convention as well for the entire show travelling all the way from Germany! Couldn't afford for anything better than the Hostelling International Hostal, but oh well - at least I get to take my chance in the recording competition and check out nuendo 4 ;-)

See you guys there,
