New York Hotels with Military Discount Options

Concorde Hotel New York is proud to offer an up to 20% discount off our Best Flexible Rate to active duty military, veterans, and their immediate families with ID.

Our hotel was originally built to house condominiums for British Airways staff, so our floorplans are much larger than other hotels: each of our 37 floors only houses four rooms. Peace and quiet is literally part of our hotel design!

Each room is designed and dressed for comfort down to the finishing touches with rainfall showers, separate standing showers and soaking tubs, plenty of natural light (and blackout curtains), and comfortable seating.

Plus, you can’t beat the location! We’re within walking distance to Central Park and plenty of restaurants and attractions with military discounts in New York.
