It's time I get serious about the travel arrangement part of this whole thing. Anyone have any recommendations for decent accommodations for MIMS? It has to be more than just sleeping on a hammock or in a Zodiac as has been suggested by others.

i have stayed in several hostels in NYC for NYCSWIMs and CIBBOW swims and recommend them for short swims but not for your swim.

Good luck with your MIMS swim.

Have you tried looking at the hotels link on NYC Swim web site?

Like most New Yorkers, it is very helpful:D
Look for something in your price range close to Battery Park.

LOL! You were right. I don't know why I didn't look there first. :-)

bob - you can still ask for input? but i thought there was a resource at nycswim.

FYI - do not stay at the white house hostel in the bowery if doing a 26-mile swim...

You might could check in Downtown Jersey City, the prices are considerably less, it's a short PATH subway ride to the WFC complex, and easier to get to EWR if that's how you're arriving/ departing. Heck, some of the escort kayaks come over from there - if you're up for a 2 mile warmup. . .
