Underwater hotels are a relatively new invention that has become popular with tourists. Unlike the usual accommodation, an underwater hotel is literally below water and allows you to view fish and other aquatic creatures while sitting in your hotel room. It is the perfect place to stay for someone looking for a different experience. It is also great for animal lovers who will be interested in seeing fish swimming past.

There is not currently a New York underwater hotel but there are a lot of other places to stay. However, New York may have underwater hotels one day soon. Developing and constructing an underwater hotel is likely much more challenging than building a traditional hotel on land. This could be why there is no underwater hotel in New York as yet.

Although there are no underwater hotels in the New York area, there is plenty of other types of hotels to choose from. It depends on what you want and where exactly you would like to stay as to what hotel would suit you. There is so much to do and see in New York City and other cities in New York state, that it is always worth a visit even if you can’t book an underwater hotel room in New York.

Best Time to Visit New York Underwater Hotels

The best time to visit New York really depends on exactly where you want to stay and what you want to do. New York City (NYC) has lots to offer at any time of year. There are also activities in other cities in the state of New York if you want to avoid the main city.

  • During the spring and summer months, New York is pleasant in terms of weather.
  • April until September is the warm season in New York.
  • Avoid wintertime if you do not like the cold. The coldest months are January and February.
  • New York City and the state, in general, have freezing temperatures and snow in winter, so if you do visit in winter you need to be prepared.

If cold is not a concern, Christmas and New Year’s celebrations are terrific in New York City. However, the city may be crowded at these times because the celebrations do attract many people. The time of year won’t matter too much for most attractions, except of course if you do not like the cold. Some great attractions to see in NYC include the following:

  • Statue of Liberty: This is a must-see attraction and cultural landmark for anyone who visits.
  • Central Park: The perfect place for a picnic and to explore nature.
  • Empire State Building: Visit this to get incredible scenic views of the city.
  • Broadway: If you like to watch live plays then you should get tickets for a show on Broadway.
  • Museum of Modern Art: A great place to see all types of art.
  • National 9/11 Memorial & Museum: This is a memorial and tribute to the victims of the 9/11 attack.
  • Rockefeller Center: A significant landmark in NYC where you can skate and shop. It is particularly popular at Christmas time.

Outside of NYC, you can travel and stay in upstate New York. There are the Catskill and Adirondack Mountains for hiking and camping or visiting Niagara Falls on the Canadian border. You can also visit the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.

Average Cost of Underwater Hotels In New York

New York City is expensive but is the most popular destination for tourists in the state of New York. It is likely you would pay a high price for most accommodation in the city.

  • There are hotels in Times Square and Manhattan in NYC. These will be on the expensive side because of the location.
  • The cost of a hotel would be slightly lower if you stay in other cities in upstate New York.
  • Cost is likely to be influenced by the time of year when you visit.
  • June and July are the most expensive months to stay at a hotel in New York.
  • January is the least expensive month to reserve a hotel room.

Besides the cost of a hotel, you always need to think about travel in New York. It is best to use public transport such as the subway, buses, or taxis if you are in NYC. It may be easier to rent a car in other parts of the state.

There is much to see and do in New York so a visit would be well worth it. Remember to plan ahead taking into account what weather you prefer and what activities you want to do.
