Did you know that there is military lodging available in New York City?
The Soldier’s Sailor’s, Marines, Coast Guard, and Airmen’s club is located in midtown Manhattan on Lexington Avenue between 36th and 37th street. Anyone who is military personal of the US and its allies may stay here. This includes active duty, reserve, guard, veterans, cadets, members of the police department, fire department, emergency medical services, and DOD.
Our accommodations were not glamorous, but they were good enough. I’ve stayed in a lot of military lodging and this was not the worst, but definitely not great.
The family rooms are on the 4th floor of the hotel, which makes it tough because there is no elevator. We stayed in a large family room that had six beds and an ac window unit. The bathrooms and showers were shared.
Rates were based on beds used and rank. I was traveling without my husband and the kids and I were able to stay there without him. I paid $110 per night. I liked saving so much money but 4 flights of stairs is brutal.
Each morning, complimentary coffee and bagels are served downstairs in the kitchen area. There is another lounge with computers where you can print for free.
We did not use their recommended parking garage. Instead, I used Icon parking and used a coupon. I highly recommend checking out NYC Daily Deals for parking specials.
