Five years ago, I did contact the Lenox Hill Patient-Relations Dept. I was planning a 5 nite stay, with 2 separate procedure days and one Post-procedure office visit. Affinia was the only connection back then. The hotel was being subsidized for their cut rate service. Call early so you get a reservation very close to Lenox Hill.
Afffinia Hotels offers a discount for lenox hill pts and their families. It had a nice kitchen. But cheap for NY is still $250/nite. We did it for a short term stay. My husband stayed there while I was inpatient for two nites. We had a stay - (at home) - cation that year. No complaints. I knew from ten previous embolizations that I would not be up for subways, etc. It was tax deductible, I believe. We are not wealthy, but the cost was worth it. Very antiseptic place.Clean sheets every day mattered at the time. An acute awareness that they are dealing with patients. There was a terrible thunderstorm one nite that kept my husband away for an hr. I had a bleeding type situation, the housekeeper was cool, calm and collected when I asked her to help me. She seemed very familiar with applying pressure to wound, etc. It was not a 911 type emergency. Pharmacy meds were brought right to my door. I believe I heard that two singles of same gender can split the cost.
Helmsley Towers offered a similar discount in the Sloane Kettering area.
My friends at birthmark.org can offer alternatives such as sub-letting an apt in Staten Island. They were able to take ferry, train. I just had to break my piggy bank acct.
