Where to stay – EDC New York Hotel Deals


*Update* Find the newest hotel recommendations for EDC New York 2014 here!

Hey EDC fans! Time is quickly flying by as we wait for the FIRST EDC of 2013 in New York to kick off the Electric Daisy Carnival road to Vegas!

This year a new venue has been chosen and Citi Field Stadium will be host to the 100,000+ crowd of ravers on the East Coast May 17 – 18.

This will be sooo much better than last year because it will take place in a stadium instead of a parking lot. Your butts will thank you when you sit on grass instead of asphalt.

What sucks with a venue change, however, is all that research into finding hotels you did last year doesn’t apply anymore and you have to start over again.

Well, HowtoEDC has got you covered!

For easy digestion of information we have categorized our recommendations to these listed here: the closest hotel to Citi Field, the cheapest hotel within 1 mile, the cheapest hotel with easy access to the subway, the cheapest hotel for drivers, and the highest rated hotel within 15 minutes of EDC New York. Let’s get on with it!

Closest Hotel to EDC New York

Holiday Inn LaGuardia Airport

This hotel is the closest hotel to EDC New York at only .6 miles away. You can walk to EDC from your hotel in 10 minutes and avoid paying for parking as well as avoid the massive traffic jams before and after EDC! Those are never fun. Another plus… you don’t need a designated driver to walk, meaning everyone can party all night long!

Cheapest Hotel Near EDC New York

Howard Johnson Flushing

This Howard Johnson hotel is located about 1 mile or 18 minutes walk from EDC New York so it is borderline walk-able for me. The hotel has newly renovated rooms and is also pretty close to the subway, so if you want to shorten your walking travel time from 18 minutes to 5 minutes, that is also an option. This will be your best bang for your buck hotel because it combines a short commute with a decent price and FREE breakfast!

Cheapest Hotel With Easy Access to the Subway

Days Inn Long Island City

At a 3 minute walk to the closest subway and a 17 minute ride to Citi Field, this hotel is 20 minutes away from EDC New York using public transportation. No traffic, no need for a DD and a cheap price on top of that… I think we have a winner! The Subway works 24/7 as well so don’t worry about having to catch the “last train”.

Cheapest Hotel for Drivers

Best Western City View Motor Inn – Long Island City

This hotel has great access to the freeway and gives you drivers out there an 11 minute commute to EDC at Citi Field. City street driving is kept at a minimum as the path to EDC is 98% freeway driving. Just remember to put in extra time just in case there is traffic getting in and out of EDC.

Highest Rated Hotel Within 15 Minutes

Z NYC Hotel

If you like to party in style and are not too concerned about costs, this hotel is the closest 4 star hotel to EDC New York. You can get some really fancy rooms here as well as shuttle service provided by the hotel that can take you around to the nearby shops and restaurants. Z NYC is also very close to Manhattan and all the entertainment to be had there. If you intend to stay a little longer in New York after EDC, this hotel can easily serve you for both of your excursions!
