The website littleviewstravel.com has published a convenient New York City Hotel Cost Calculator to calculate the cost for each night. It also calculates the cost for the stay. You would need to make a separate calculation if the per night rate fluctuates.
If you're planning a visit to New York City, these are the current taxes (14.75%) and fees added to the daily hotel rate:
New York State Sales Tax 4%
New York City Sales Tax (4.5%) and Transportation District Surcharge (.375%) = 4.875%
Hotel Room Occupancy Tax $2 plus 5.875%
Javits Tax $1.50
This means a $150 room will actually cost $175.63. A $250 room (no uncommon and a deal in Times Square) will cost a total of $290.38.
Last I understood was that the Javitz hotel tax fed funds of $1.7 billion project to renovate the Javits Convention Center in Manhattan. If anyone knows what else this tax funds or the purpose of this tax has changes, then let me know.
