So what's the hold up? Well for one, airfares. My target for Seattle-New York is $99 each way. That's a "pull the trigger" point for me, and I just haven't been able to find it at all for any of the major school breaks. I've seen $119, but not on my preferred airlines, so once I factor in luggage costs it comes out even higher. There's also those wonderful New York hotel rooms. In the past I've tried the low-end (Wyndham), the mid-tier (Doubletree), and the high-end (The Plaza) but I've yet to get a room that I would want to try and squeeze a third person into. That means I have to find a deal good enough to make buying two rooms per night a fiscal possibility, just so that the 5 of us can cram ourselves in for a few hours of competitive blanket hogging.
