Connected to the rest of Manhattan via ferry and expressway, Staten Island is without doubt the Big Apple’s most suburban area, and gives tourists a true feel for what New York City life is like. Although accommodation isn’t as abundant in Staten Island as in the likes of Brooklyn and Manhattan, there are plenty of Staten Island top hotel deals on offer.
Staten Island is often thought of in two parts – the North Shore and the South Shore. While the latter is one of the safest parts of New York City, the latter requires visitors to exercise caution after dark. Accommodation in Staten Island is particularly convenient for those that fly into Newark International Airport, just over the river in New Jersey.
Visitors to Staten Island who are interested in staying in ethnically diverse neighborhoods with considerable Hispanic populations often stay in hotels in the likes of St George, Tompkinsville, Port Richmond, and Mariners Harbor. In these parts of the borough, Staten Island top hotel deals bring down nightly rates to between US$100 and US$200.
Another popular part of Staten Island is West New Brighton, which plays host to Staten Island Zoo. Alternatively, those visitors with little ones with them often stay in Livingston or New Brighton, which both provide good access to Staten Island Children’s Museum and Snug Harbor Cultural Center. Typically, accommodation in these areas is priced between US$50 and US$150 a night.
The last two neighborhoods of note in Staten Island are Tottenville and New Springville, which provide great access to Conference House and Staten Island Mall. As in other areas in the borough, accommodation in these districts is best discounted with Staten Island top hotel deals.
