Are $400/night rooms "mid-range," even in the Theater District? If so, what's a "splurge"? I find this especially odd, seeing that restaurants where you can get a meal for as little as $10 are listed as "Mid-Range," too. I would think of Grand Sichuan and probably Ariana, too, as "budget" restaurants, which in New York essentially means anything around $25 for dinner or less. $5 for dinner is another category: Really cheap. Mid-range for dinner to me would be in the $40s and $50s per person.

- No, you're definately correct. $400 a night is a splurge. NYC is an expensive city, but it is possible to reserve rooms between $100 - $200 and I would consider that Mid-range, especially for NYC. Go ahead and change that. Also, Michael do you have an account?

- I moved 2 of the hotels to splurge. I kept the HGI as mid-range, because it's generally less expensive than some of the mid-range places. I put the Carnegie Deli and Vice Versa as mid-range. As for the Carnegie Deli, any place that sells $20 sandwiches doesn't seem "budget" to me -- you can definitely do cheaper in that neighborhood. At Vice Versa, a meal for two (w/o wine) came to $75, which again doesn't qualify as budget. The $10 items are available for the penny-pincher, but I think the category should be based on the typical meal, not the low end of the range. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jonboy (talk • contribs)
- The typical meal cost at Grand Sichuan is $20-25 for lunch or dinner. I consider that cheap, especially given the quality and quantity of the food.

The URL in this hotel listing is broken, and a Google search isn't turning up much. I'm not sure it is still in business:

I think this article should be upgraded to guide status. Sumone10154 17:35, 17 January 2011 (EST)
- It's close, but I would like to see some overview paragraphs for "See", "Do", "Buy", "Drink", and "Sleep". LtPowers 09:35, 18 January 2011 (EST)
- Is it mandatory for sections to have overview paragraphs to become guide status? I noticed several other guide articles that are missing alot of them (such as Manhattan/East Village and San Francisco/The Avenues. Sumone10154 13:13, 18 January 2011 (EST)
- No, I don't think it's mandatory, but it's something I'd like to see versus a plain list, especially for "See" and "Do". LtPowers 15:24, 18 January 2011 (EST)
- I still think this deserves to be a guide. Can anyone else comment? Sumone10154 15:35, 20 January 2011 (EST)
- I'll have to demur. The most important component of guide status is completeness. The Theater District is a big section of the most dense and wealthy urban area in the country, and this article doesn't have a single restaurant in the splurge category! While this is not the part of the city I am most familiar with, my strong hunch is that the eat and drink sections (and likely buy as well) are very underdeveloped. --Peter Talk 23:26, 22 January 2011 (EST)
