I recently came back from Siggraph and I also attended The Last Hope.  
Both conferences expected the attendees to provide their own  
accommodations. That said, New York is a very friendly place for  
hackers and suits alike. If you have any contacts in the area expect  
to find something.

http://hackerhalfwayhouse.org/  for example.

There are also hotels, though I can't vouch for their cost. There's  
one in my neighborhood called Hotel Le Jolie http://www.hotellejolie.com/

But hey, the dollar is at an all time low! America sucks! Take  


P.S. Le Jolie is NOT IN TIMES SQUARE, it's in Brooklyn.
