NYC Hotel Availability For "Orphanistas" (Moving Image Archivists, Cinephiles, Film Scholars, Film Restorers, Etc.)

UPDATED JUNE 2008: See more recent post, Affordable Accomodations in New York City: Summer 2008

The following information is especially for the archivist-scholar-preservationist friends planning to attend the 6th Orphan Film Symposium at NYU March 26-29, 2008. I can't vouch for availability and accuracy. I do know these affordable hotels by reputation or experience, so these would be fine places to stay.

Hotel rooms under $200 a night:

SOHOTEL (SoHo area, on the Bowery)
341 BROOME ST. NEW YORK, NY 10013
1-800-737-0701
$179-$189

HOTEL 31 (Midtown East)
120 EAST 31ST. NEW YORK, NY 10016
(212) 685 3060
double, shared bath $94
other type rooms available

HOTEL 17 (Gramercy)
225 EAST 17 ST. NEW YORK, NY 10003
(212) 475 2845
double, shared bath $119
other type rooms available

THE POD (formerly Pickwick Arms) Upper midtown East
230 EAST 51 ST. NEW YORK, NY 10022
800-742-5945
single, shared bath $116

GERSHWIN HOTEL (Midtown East)
7 EAST 27 ST. NEW YORK, NY 10016
212-545-8000
Superior Room $180-$194 (one double or two singles)

By the way, I recommend these hotels for people who are not film scholars or moving image archivists and would like to find NY hotel rooms within a budget.
