Hotel recommendations needed for NYC. Ideally downtown. Not crazy expensive, but it's for my parents, so it needs to be fancier than a backpacker's hotel/hostel (eg, private bath, not too noisy, clean, etc). Many thanks!

I'm planning on going to SXSW this year. I'll probably stay for at least a few days, maybe a week.
Where should I stay? How expensive are accommodations? How far in advance must I make reservations? Are there any popular alternatives to staying in a hotel?
p.s. I don't drive.

In Slate's Explainer column today
, they have the unanswered questions of 2007. Most are inscrutable, unanswerable or ridiculous... but I've wondered this one myself too many times to let it go: "Very rare to find a hotel room with a light on the ceiling, they're usually floor lamps or desk lamps. Is there some structural reason for that?" [more inside]

I'm planning a trip to New York with my girlfriend in March of 2008. We're leaving with a bus that stops at Port Authority. I'm wondering what are some moderately priced near by hotels that we could check into.

I have to be in Manhattan Dec 6th - Dec 9th. My flight is booked and my appointments are scheduled. I am flying solo. My plan was to stay in Manhattan, and goof off after my appointments. Unfortunately, every hotel in Manhattan for those days is $600+ a night. Ordinarily I can Priceline $150 and get bites, but even after a $250 bid, I got nothing on a 3 / 4 *. So......where should I stay and still be able to explore Manhattan without freezing my ass off?? I can be a bit of a snob and would prefer not to stay in something lower than 3*. Any secret Manhattan hotels that I can get into that are not sh*t holes? Brooklyn? New Jersey? Connecticut?

Really like the discount "European" hotels with tiny rooms and the shared bath, like 500 West in San Diego and the Belnord in NYC. Where’s the similar cheap place in LA? And since I can’t imagine there’s many, lets open up the question to all metro-American tourist capitals. [more inside]

Looking for a lakeside B&B (or cottage or hotel) with lake view room in WI, IN or MI. Should be within two hours from Chicago roughly. This would be for early January. Any recommendations or cautions? Ideal prices would be in the $125 or under a night range.

I'm in the greater Toledo area and I'm looking for a romantic weekend getaway location in the surrounding area for thanksgiving weekend. I'm fairly new to the area and don't know the nice places to go and stay. Its an anniversary, so I want somewhere kind of romantic, like maybe a resort hotel or something. But it needs to be somewhere that won't just be cold and dead in late November. [more inside]

We're two recent grad-school graduates on a budget, travelling to Portland and Seattle in a couple of weeks. Any recommendations for relatively inexpensive hotels in both cities? (Previous Seattle questions have brought up the Moore Hotel, but in case they're booked, any alternative suggestions?) Thanks!

Does anyone know any nice places to stay in Cornwall, England? Preferable B&Bs, but hotels OK. Up to £100 per double room per night is probably the limit, but we're getting desperate, so..

Is this a legit hotel booking site? Does anyone have any experience with hotelsireland.com
, good or bad? I found a too good to be true rate for a hotel in Ireland (Trim Castle Hotel) that's about half the normal rate, but want to know I'm not going to be scammed when I give them money. Googling around isn't yielding anything in the way of reviews for this site. Thanks!

Thanks to advice
here on the green, I have sorted out my transportation logistics for getting to the World Cup. Before and after the Paraguay vs. Trinidad game, I will be visiting Paris, Florence, and Madrid for a few days each. Where should we stay? I don't mind paying $200-$300 a night. Just looking for some nice hotels in good locations for people who don't speak the local languages.
