Now this is a nice marketing move by the owner of this Manhattan vacation rental: Peppering the listing with the word “suite.”
Suite sounds so, well, sweet, doesn’t it? It conjures image of sweet views and your own private hideaway from the bustle below. Coupled with photos of sleek furniture, a gourmet-style galley kitchen, booze for cocktailing, plus amenities like an on-site gym, laundry room and a boutique-style lobby manned by a 24-hour concierge, this is a New York City vacation rental that’s bound to be scooped up.
Within walking distance to Time Square, Madison Square Garden, Empire State Building, Broadway, Grand Central Terminal and Bryant Park, the vacation home appeals to tourists seeking to knock out the major tourist destinations during a long weekend or even a single professional who makes frequent trips to the city.
In your offtime, catch “In The Heights,” visit the Empire State Building Observatory, take a photo by the JumboTron, order grub from a food cart or street vendor.
What you obviously should not do: Complain about lodging. At $200-$250 a night, your immaculate apartment is a steal by New York standards. Trust me, I checked.
