    Thanks for posting the link.

    I spy Molton Brown amenities in the bathroom and I give a thumbs up for that.
    No portico white ginger. Yay!

    Room appears small but fairly typical for NY city. Just glad to see another Hyatt in the Big Apple!

    This doesn't look typical for NYC in my book. This looks like one of those rooms where, as Mark Twain said, you can't swing a cat in, not without doing harm to the cat. It they have 19sqmt rooms, I'm not even going to try the place!

    You'll probably get the Presidential Suite - all of 50 Sq Meters :D

    what's with all the platform beds in the cubbyhole rooms?
    Is there anybody else that isn't a fan of Platform beds?:eek::(
    It doesn't look good from the photos at all.Hopefully in preson it comes off in style and more importantly comfort
    Econolodge is doing a similar redesign with platforms
    I am going to guess they are cheaper and more bed bug resistant at the expense of comfort

    Odd, in that the original permit plans designated a "24-story extended-stay hotel" (click on C/O Summary):

    http://a810-bisweb.nyc.gov/bisweb/C...docnumber=01&allisn=0000552713&allbin=1036226

    That might explain the butler pantries - a microwave and maybe a mini-fridge to warm & store takeout and leftovers, but not full kitchens such as a Residence Inn [​IMG]

    Per the beds, I'm no design expert, but I think that the thinking is that platform beds give the optical illusion of a more spacious room.

    Designed for the president of Luxembourg, probably! In any case, it's looking like it won't be open by the time of my next NYC trip (early May), so it'll likely be someone else who sees it first.

    Hey watch it :D The President of Luxembourg stayed at the PH Vendome for the Mediterranean Summit in Paris in 2008 (along with a few other European heads of state) - we were there too (got upgraded to a suite right over the entrance).
