I recently posted the question "Where could my daughter Anna stay in New York? ":
http://www.proz.com/topic/59668

Especially Lilianas Roman-Hamilton's posting was valuable: Websters, Thebrandon and St. Mary's Residence

We thereby found another excellent source including the above in their list of lodging alternatives for young women :

We finally chose Sacred Hearts, 432 West 20th St ($240/ a week) with some special rules (like curfew at 11 pm etc.), where Anna will now stay.

Hotels in NYC are expensive and some do not accept those under 21 Nov 16, 2006

In our search for Anna's stay we found that most hotels cost more than $100/night and those below seemed to be infested with cockraoaches, having mice, stealing staff and dirty linen etc.
Some, like Holiday Inn, did not accept guests below 21 years of age.

Where young men could stay at places similar to those for young women mentioned above I haven't yet explored but maybe someone else has info on that.

TIA

Where I stayed Nov 16, 2006

Hi Mats,

I stayed in the Pickwick Hotel on E51st street (between 2nd and 3rd Avenues) last month. It was $149/night. There is no curfew and you can come and go as you please. The location is great but I'd recommend taking earplugs!

Hospitality Club Nov 16, 2006

Where I stay whenever I go to a powwow (still haven't found time to attend a conference).
In Düsseldorf, I stayed at the flat of a softspoken lady, member of www.hospitalityclub.org.
It might be an idea to have a kind of prozcomhospitalityclub? Staying at the homes of other members? After all, proz.com members are situated worldwide.

The Pickwick Nov 16, 2006

Thanks for that, Orla. What a coincidence! I was just with my friend about Anna's situation. My friend knows NYC quite well, having got engaged there (in a horse-drawn carriage in Central Park one September afternoon)

She recommended The Pickwick as well. Good to know, and thanks for the additional info, it'll be useful to me!

I'm SO glad you found an accommodation for your daughter.

I hope she can spend a wonderful time in The Big Apple!

I'm an Hospitality Club member and have had a couple of guests at my place. It has been a great experience, but still, all of them have been close friends of people I've met beforehand (I can be a little bit paranoid).

A ProZ hospitality club could be a very enriching experience indeed!

Cheers
Andrea
