Anybody got a timeshare they'd be willing to share?  
So Jen and I are continuing to look at our financial situation, and were wondering if there's somebody out there in cyberland that has a timeshare they might be willing to let us rent for our honeymoon?  We're planning to be in New York City (as close to the Theatre District as possible is ideal, but close to a subway station works almost as well) from August 28 to September 5 - a total of eight nights.

If some kind soul out there can help us out in this area, we'd appreciate it...

Try this...
It says the offer is only good until Aug. 31, but maybe you can work something out for a longer stay. Of course, you have to listen to their crummy timeshare sales pitch (and don't you DARE buy one!!) http://www.manhattanclub.com/s/tmc-ofr.html

Looks great! Except for the fine print at the bottom...
"The Manhattan Club is registered in NY, NJ, CT, PA, MA, MD, NC, VA, and DC. This offer is not available to residents of any state in which registration is not complete."


Great idea, though.... =/

A Greenwich Village Habitue
It's a bed and breakfast place. Not too expensive (about $175 a night) and near a subway station. The folks at trip advisor give it a very high rating. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g60763-d118717-Reviews-A_Greenwich_Village_Habitue-New_York_City_New_York.html

The Belevedere
This doesn't look as charming as the Greenwich Village place, but it's near Time Square. The rates are about $165 a night. http://www.res99.com/hotel/10003907-10000101B.html

Um, I'm totally out of the loop with my timeshare, but if you want to drop Kurt an email he should have all the information saved on his computer. If there's anything in the right area at the right time...

As a former hotel manager...
Honestly, the best thing for cheap rates is an internet company... much lower than the corporate rate... Our rooms were listed at $350 rack and about $200 corporate. We had people staying for $70/ night with expedia or travelocity...

It works because the internet companies buy in huge bulk. They guarantee the hotels x number of room nights per year to get a really awesome room rate. So if they guarantee a $200/night property 300 room nights and get a room rate of $75, they sell it to you for $125, you get a room at a $75 discount and they turn a tidy $50 profit for introducing you to the hotel...

The one major caveat to this is that you should check and double check your reservations. There was more than a few times where we had people show up with thier internet confirmations and the companies never sent us the paperwork...

Just a thought, if nothing else works out....

Oh and on a complete tangent, I know you used to collect Disney Park Pins... They have 4 or 5 new ones that are available in Energizer battery packs...
