If you’ve never endured the sticker shock of a $300-a-night, 300-square-foot Manhattan hotel room, consider yourself lucky. It stings–especially if your walk-in closet at home is larger than the collective space.
For more bang for your buck, only a Manhattan vacation rental will do.
The two-bedroom, two-bath pictured is based in the Upper East Side, and sleeps up to five people. Do the math and know that it’s the obvious value over that Chelsea vintage walk-up that calls itself a hotel.
And it’s a safe bet that the latter doesn’t provide these luxury apartment amenities: a pool, fitness room, roof deck with barbecue grills, soaring 13-foot ceilings, two full bathrooms, granite counter tops with a built-in breakfast bar and complimentary L’Occitane bath products. You laugh, but fragrant, high-end soaps and lotions make a guest giddy.
Swag is super.
