Folks, whats the Hotel I saw recommended for NYC Triathlon which was not the Host Hotel but very close and reasonable price. I remember folks mentioned it awhile back in a forum string.
Yes some of us are insane enough to race NYCTri vs. NJTri. It wil be my first NYCTri
Maybe Billy Elliot will be racing??? ;)
I'm not sure where the majority of DC Tri Club folks are staying... However, I recommend the Lucerne Hotel. I stayed there last year for the triathlon, and found it to be very conveniently located AND reasonably priced ($200/night). The transition area is a safe 12-min walk (downhill) from the hotel. Also, there's a great Italian restaurant across the street - Coppola's.
any place on the upper west side is fine, you have places like the bellaclaire, on the ave, etc that are 4 minute walk to transition very easy good luck.
I also recommend the Bel Claire, the deli around the corner is open early enough to get a bagel and bucket of coffee. And walking to transition is a huge draw.
Belleclaire it is. Hope to see DCTri folks there
If youre an old dude like me, youre wave will go first. But the young whipper snappers were actually able to set up thier gear in the transition area and walk back to the hotel to take a nap. pretty cool deal.
