Best NYC Hotels with Military Discounts

Audrey asked us a great question about NYC hotels with military discounts. Thanks so much for your great question and more importantly, MANY THANKS to you and your family for your service to our country.

These are my suggestions on where to look for the best NYC Military Discounts:

  • Have you tried the SSMAC at Discount NYC Hotels? With rooms from $25 per night, one of the best discount NYC Hotels is reserved for Military Personnel and their eligible dependents and spouses. If you fall into one of their categories, such as Military, Police, Fire from the US or any of our allies, the SSMAC is a steal and in a great location. They are in Murray Hill, which I personally think is a far better location than Times Square and specialize in military housing. Even if they are not your first choice, they might know of other Veteran discounts.
  • Here is a facebook page specifically for American Women Veterans
  • Almost EVERY attraction and hotel in NYC offers military discounts. We offer discounted Metrocards (subway), most of the cruise lines offer discounts, MoMA is free to military, attractions like the Empire State Building are discounted and much more. If you go to any restaurant, just say you’re military. You can and should experience NYC for less than the rest of us!
  • TripAdvisor keeps a current list of the Best New York City Hotels with Military Discounts. The Top 3 listed today are: Hotel Edison Times Square * The Tuscany * Hilton Garden Inn Times Square

Some of our top pages for searching safe, clean Manhattan accommodations include:

I hope these recommendations help! Please come back and let us know if you found any other military discounts of which we should be aware. And if anyone gives you trouble, just let me know – I’ll make a phone call for you. Enjoy your trip to New York City!!!

Best, Melissa
