The other three tournaments that make-up the Grand Slam are the Australian Open, the French Open and Wimbledon.
The US Open grounds hold 22 courts, with four show courts . Since 1978 all matches have taken place on hard court, known for it's blue colour!
Demand for hotels in New York gets really high around the time of the Open and it's because of this hotels can be tricky to book for you.
Finding a Hotel for the US Open
It's not only around events that New York's hotels experience high-demand - it's all year round!
One way we always avoid the hassles of high-demand is to hotel switch. Hotel switching is where you stay in 2 hotels instead of 1 for your stay.
Switching can save you as much as 70% on your stay as well as unlock more availability for your stay, which is perfect for events such as the US Open.
Hotels price their rooms on a nightly basis and it's because of this switching obtains its benefits.
Switching allows you to stay at hotels for their cheaper nights and then move to another when your original hotel increases it's prices - you only have to switch once to experience the benefits.
Switching will give you more availability for your stay because it'll make the unavailable hotels available. Hotels that are only able to accommodate you for part of your stay will be able to be included in a hotel switch!
Planning a Hotel Switch
You can manually plan a hotel switch where you just book two hotels for the dates that you want, however, this is time-consuming and you're not guaranteed to get the best deal.
