If paying for a hotel in New York during Toy Fair is a
challenge for you
(and it is for most people), help is not just on the way but here. It
seems that, according to a New York Times article, “Your room as
Cocoon: Teeny, Cheap and chic,” you can get a really nice room for under
$99 a night, if you are willing to accept tight quarters.
is how the article talks about the Jane
Hotel: “[A] restored residential hotel rising
over the West Side Highway, and the “presidential suite” was one of its
standard single rooms. Reminiscent of a high-class train cabin, it was tiny:
all of 50 square feet, just big enough for a custom-made twin bed and a
shelf.” Cost; just $89 a night.
Or how about the Pod with “…which
opened three years ago with 345 rooms averaging 100 square feet,” or the Yotel with 669 hotel rooms measuring in
at 170 square feet. The article also mentions Room
Mate Hotels and the Ace.
All of these sound pretty interesting and seem to be in good parts
of town. Check them out and let us know what you think.
