Yotel Brings $149 Rooms to NYC

yotel brings $149 rooms to NYC


Starting on June 7, visitors to New York City can stay in a new type of room, a "cabin," for $149 at the brand-new Yotel near Times Square. The hotel is currently taking on-line only reservations.

The innovative London-based hotel company, which until now has only opened Yotels at airports, is offering a $149 rate, good through the summer and based on availability. The concept of the small-room cabin was inspired by first-class airline cabins.

Considering the average price of a hotel room in Manhattan in February was $202, according to PKF Consulting, which tracks hotel trends, and that summer brings in an influx of vacationers, potential visitors who don't need a giant suite should jump on the deal. According to PKF, last year, the overall price for a hotel in Manhattan was $256.

The 669-room hotel features 170-square-foot rooms, which have enough space for a small desk and flat-screen TV. Free Wi-Fi is offered throughout the LEED-Silver hotel, which also sports a gym, lounges, and what it is touting is the largest hotel outside terrace space in New York.

Funky touches include a robot that can store your luggage and airport-style check-in kiosks. Free continental breakfast is also included.
