While on a recent trip to New York City, for our cover shoot with Shay Mitchell, the Faze team had the chance to check out a couple of hotels and hot spots.
If you’re thinking about planning a trip to the Big Apple anytime soon, check out our finds before you start!
The Andaz Wall Street – Lower Manhattan
LOCATION: To add some luxury to your trip, why not stay at the Andaz Wall Street? This gorgeous hotel is located in Lower Manhattan, right near Wall Street, Battery Park and the Ferry to the Statue of Liberty.
ENTRANCE: Check-in couldn’t be easier. While you relax on the couch in the lobby, staff can help you out by entering your details into a tablet and making sure you start your stay in comfort. Enjoy complimentary drinks and snacks in the lobby–they have awesome cookies!–or head right up to your room.
ROOM: With space at a premium in this city, it’s nice to have a bit more room with this hotel. Each guestroom is spacious and sophisticated with marble bathrooms, massive work desks, free WiFi, a picturesque window seat and more. Also, don’t forget to check out their rooftop, Garden Terrace, Outdoor Courtyard and all-natural spa!
Yotel – Times Square West
LOCATION: Yotel is just off the main hub of action at Times Square, which makes it a great place to stay if you want to in the midst of the bright lights. And the price range here may suite a tighter budget.
ENTRANCE: From the minute you walk into this place, you will be wowed. Come in through the lobby to check out Yobot–the robot arm that can safely store your luggage before you check in or after you check out, so you can still make the most of your time in NYC. Don’t need to store your luggage? You still may find yourself staring at the novelty of Yobot!Next, check-in is a breeze: you can do it yourself with touch screens or get help from the friendly staff. Then, head up to FOUR, which serves as the main lobby and houses an amazing Latin-Asian-inspired restaurant called Dohyo.
ROOM: Function meets fashion, in these cute, little suites. The rooms are compact and simple, but with everything you need right at your finger tips. From convertible beds for extra space when you’re getting ready in the morning, to smart storage for all your luggage, to a techno wall with a flat screen (can stream audio), to free WiFi throughout the building, to the galleys on every floor that serve complimentary hot drinks and purified water, this hotel has it all!
