Funky Modern Hotel in NYC
I recently returned from NYC and stayed at the YOTEL New York at Times Square. I wanted something different and YOTEL delivered. Choose from a variety of “cabins” such as the Premium Queen for 2 people or maybe the VIP Terrace Suite with a 700 sq. ft. terrace and outdoor tub. Amenities include free tea and coffee, the largest hotel terrace in NYC, free WiFi, and an incredible central location. Plus who else has YOBOT, the friendly luggage-storing robot?
