When I visited New York this past summer, I was in need of a fairly cheap place to stay in Manhattan. This isn’t an easy task. After looking around a bit, I decided to take a chance and go for a Hotwire Hot Rate deal. With one of these deals, you essentially pay up front and then find out where you’re staying (not a technique I’d recommend). In this case, I ended up at little hotel called the Washington Jefferson. While the hotel was honestly quite nice, this was by far the smallest hotel room I’ve ever seen. Perhaps the most surprising feature was the private bathroom. With rooms this small, I’d almost expect the hotel to be set up more like a dorm. But for a little over $100/night, I wasn’t about to complain.

I tried using their website to see what their actual rate is. For November 8th, it’s quoting $280!! There’s absolutely no way I would have spent that much money for this little room, but I was quite satisfied for the rate that I paid. While tiny, the room was in very nice shape and very functional. I suppose being in such a small room made the trip feel like more of an adventure.
