Lower Manhattan Lodgings?

The weekend of June 1-3, I plan to be in New York City for an event and estate stuff. The event starts on Saturday evening before the sabbath ends, so I'm looking for semi-inexpensive lodging in downtown Manhattan within walking distance of 126 Crosby Street.

Ideally, it would be nice if I could find a family that davens at a nearby Modern Orthodox synagogue with whom I could stay and who would understand my need to leave before the sabbath ends. If I can't find that, a hotel room in the area would work, but again it would be nice if there was a family or two who would take me in for meals.

Last scenario, I would just need a hotel room, and I'll bring peanut butter and tuna fish with me for the weekend.

I've gotten some leads on davening in the area, but if anyone else out there knows someone or something that could help me out, you'd have my gratitude.
