The ISST has secured room blocks at four conveniently located hotels. Please make your reservations as soon as possible as there is a limited amount of rooms in each hotel block. The cutoff date to make these reservations is April 16, 2012 at that time the rates are subject to change:
Marriott Downtown http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/nycws-new-york-marriott-downtown/
Rate: $279 + tax ($14.75% sales tax + $3.50 occupancy tax)
THIS RATE NOT AVAILABLE AFTER APRIL 25TH, 2012.
Across from NYAS
Located just across from the New York Academy of Science, this is a great choice. The hotel has river and bay views away from construction. The rooms are a nice size. The décor is comfortable and the atmosphere quiet. They have a state-of-the-art fitness center. For those interested in some late night discussions, there is sports bar open until midnight.

Across from the NYAS
Located across from the New York Academy of Science, this is a great option if you are looking for a chic New York experience. The décor is modern and trendy. The rooms are small, but clean and comfortable. There is a state-of–the-art fitness center. Lobby bar is open until 2am! I would request a room on the opposite side of the Memorial construction site.

Across from the NYAS
Located across from NYAS, this hotel is good for travelers on a budget. The rooms and halls are a bit tight, but the décor is clean and inviting.
They have a lovely restaurant with views of the 911 Memorial in progress. I would request a quiet room away from the Memorial site. The club room (smaller than standard) is only $219.

Rate: $169 for Singles and double rooms + tax ($14.75% sales tax + $3.50 occupancy tax) THIS RATE NOT AVAILABLE AFTER APRIL 16TH, 2012.
126 Water Street
If you are on a tight budget, the Holiday Inn Express is for you. It’s not glamorous and it’s a few blocks from NYAS, but you’re outside the hustle of the 911 Memorial site. The rooms are clean, the gym is adequate and your reservation includes a hot breakfast.

This hotel is very large for NY: bigger rooms, bigger gym, and a pool.
The only negative is that it’s a bit noisy!!! If you are a good sleeper, it’s probably fine. It looks out directly onto the 9/11 Site.
Newark International Airport
- The set fare from New York City to Newark International Airport is the regular metered rate of fare, plus a $15.00 surcharge, plus all tolls going to and returning from the airport.
John F. Kennedy International Airport
- The TLC has established a "Flat Fare" program for trips to and from JFK and Manhattan. The flat fare is $45.00 plus any tolls. There is no set fare to or from JFK to any point in New York City outside of Manhattan, and the metered rate applies.
LaGuardia International Airport
- There is no set fare for trips to and from LaGuardia International Airport. The regular metered rate of fare, as is displayed below, applies in all cases.
Metered Rate of Fare
$2.50 upon entry
$.40 for each additional unit
$.40 per 60 seconds of waiting time
$.50 night surcharge after 8:00PM and prior to 6:00AM
$1.00 Peak Hour Surcharge in effect 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Monday-Friday
The unit of fare is:
One-fifth of a mile, when the taxicab is traveling at 6 miles per hour or more; or 120 seconds (at a rate of twenty cents per minute), when the taxicab is not in motion or is traveling at less than 6 miles per hour.
The taximeter shall combine fractional measures of distance and time to accrue a unit of fare. Any combination of distance or time shall be computed by the taximeter in accordance with the National Bureau of Standards. The fare shall include pre-assessment of the unit currently being accrued; the amount due may therefore include a full unit charge for a final, fractional unit.
Different variables such as heavy traffic and tolls should be taken into account in gauging the final cost of your trip.
