The YMCA on 63rd Street.
Why? She's asked colleagues who have stayed there, talked with the staff (and when doing so, a gentlemen came out of the elevator and exclaimed "Great room!" to one of the staff at the desk) and snooped around on the web. The price is very good for what you are getting: a clean, quiet room a few steps away from Central Park and Chez Oxy, plenty of places to dine in the area, Lincoln Center is a block away as in Tavern On the Green etc etc.
Really.. I know what you're thinking.....YMCA? Isn't that a smelly dive? No. Not in NYC it isn't. The place is run like a hostel with a dash of class.
