Lodging

For those who will be visiting NYC for the Musical Saw Festival, here are some hotels in the area, for your consideration:

One of the closest (though maybe not cheapest) hotel to the Musical Saw Festival is:
Holiday Inn Manhattan View – Queens
39-05 29th Street, Long Island City – (718) 707-3700
This is 3 subway stops from the Musical Saw Festival (on either the ‘N’ or ‘Q’ trains, from the 39th Avenue subway station). You can’t get any closer than this.

Another close by hotel:
Four Points by Sheraton Long Island City/Queensboro Bridge – 27-05 39th Avenue • Long Island City, NY 11101
Phone: (718) 786-8500
This is 3 subway stops from the Musical Saw Festival (on either the ‘N’ or ‘Q’ trains, from the 39th Avenue subway station).

This one is also near-by, but might be more expensive:
Verve Hotel
40-03 29th Street, Long Island City – (718) 786-454

Another close by hotel: Country Inn & Suites By Carlson
40-34 Crescent Street, NY 11101
(718) 729-0111
This hotel is 5 subway stops on the ‘N’ or ‘Q’ train from the Musical Saw Festival.

Quality Inn Long Island City – 30-03 40th Ave, Long Island City, NY, 11101, (718) 391-0202
This is 3 subway stops from the Musical Saw Festival (on either the ‘N’ or ‘Q’ trains, from the 39th Avenue subway station).

The Double Tree in Times Square – located right above an Uptown/Queens bound ‘N’ & ‘W’ train subway stop, and is in the heart of Times Square. You can’t beat being able to walk out your front door and be in the middle of New York. This place can be pricey though.

The Jazz Hostels – for thrifty travelers, the Jazz Hostels are an attractive option with several locations in New York City (the Times Square one is best for closeness to the Saw Festival). Cheaper and in a communal setting.

Fairfield Inn New York (Astoria branch – NOT Flushing). With a variety of locations in Manhattan (and one located near Laguardia Airport which is only a short bus ride to the Musical Saw Festival’s neighborhood), this is a viable option for those looking for a reputable chain experience or who are looking to stay near the airport.

Guest House at the Community Church of New York – located at Park Avenue and 35th Street, this is a great spot for people looking for a cozy and more affordable alternative to traditional hotels in New York City. Getting to the Musical Saw Festival will take longer (2 subway trains).
