YOTEL brings affordable luxury to New York

MONDAY, MARCH 01, 2010

GERARD GREENE - CEO OF YOTEL reported this morning

We wanted you to be one of the first to know that we are announcing today that we will open for business in the 'Big Apple' in the Spring of next year. This will be the first YOTEL opening outside of our current international airport locations and make it the largest hotel opening in New York in 2011.

YOTEL Times Square, located at 42nd Street and 10th Avenue, will be part of Related Company's 1.2 million square foot, 60 storey LEED-Silver complex which will include residential units and the Frank Gehry designed Signature Theatre.

The flagship YOTEL property is being co-designed by The Rockwell Group and Softroom and will feature an exciting Club Lounge and the largest outside terrace space of any hotel in New York.

Achingly cool and chillingly efficient YOTEL will offer customers a perfectly designed 16sqm (170sqft) of private space in which to relax, refresh, connect and sleep, a true haven of calm. Luxury bedding, rejuvenating monsoon rain showers, relaxing purple mood lighting and YOTEL's 'techno wall' with flat screen TV, and complimentary WiFi will soon be on offer to those visiting New York. Never again will travellers have to be subject to expensive and boring hotels.

We have established ourselves in the hearts of international travellers and the media alike. Thanks to your support we have collected industry awards and rave Trip Advisor ratings. Last year, YOTEL won the prestigious Business Accommodation of the Year at the Business Travel World Awards.

To those of you that have stayed thank you; and to those of you that haven't why not; you're missing out!

I hope with the first of many city centre hotels to come that we will see you soon.
