Are there any good hotels in that area that are under $300???

The distances are not great, can the wife and I walk from CP to where Birdland is located, would that be safe? What about after dark?

It depends on your dates, how "nice" of a hotel you want and where you want to be. I would first book a cancellable reservation at a hotel then I would advocate using Priceline and bidding on a four star in Central Park South, Mid-town and/or Times Square districts about a week before your cruise. You should be able to pick up something decent for under $200. If you get a hotel, cancel the one you have booked and enjoy.

Take care,
