Default New york Hostels

Hello everyone,
My girlfriend and I are planning a trip to New York in February this year but after booking the plane tickets realized that since we are both 20 booking a hotel room will be a challenge. This wouldn't really faze me since for hostels you only need to be 18 but my girlfriend on the other hand doesn't like the idea of a hostel and prefers to travel in luxury. So if we can't convince a hotel to let us stay I was wondering if anyone has some recommendations for possible hostel candidates. We would need a private room for two, preferably near the theatre district. It would have to be very clean and price isn't a huge issue since we were budgeting for a hotel. Essentially the more hotel-ish the better since it will be almost impossible to get my girlfriend into a hostel on the best of days.

I never had a problem staying in hotels when I was under 21, all you need is a credit card...

We finally got it worked out today, my girlfriend and I can stay in the hotel she wanted to stay in but we need to fax them permission slips from our parents first. I guess I'm going on a field tripp to New York

Permission slips? Aren't you both 18 or over? What kind of crock is that?

Maybe it's some weird Canadian thing? All I know is I stayed in plenty of hotels with friends after I turned 18 and before I turned 21.

Well the first person we talked to said there was no way we could stay there, the second one said it was no problem and the third who was the manager said we needed parental permission since we we under 21.
