Hotel Review: YOTEL NYC...


Happy Monday guys!
Today I'm talking about my stay and experience with YOTEL, during my trip for NYFW.



Here you'll find touchscreen check-ins that makes the check-in process run super smoothly and helps make mission control less crowded and busy, so that they can be at better service to you during your stay.


Now this is the most genius thing I've ever witnessed! They have a robot (aka YOBOT) that stores your luggage if you happen to arrive before check-in time. It was such a lifesaver for me since I flew in and arrived at the hotel before 1:30 and had a meeting event at 2. I stored my bags with YOBOT and was able to create a secure password, that only I knew, to retrieve my bags when it was time to check in.

A room with a view!


I need coffee first thing in the morning! So I got dressed and rode the elevator down to their club lounge for a latte and croissant. I also ended up chatting with one of the baristas about the whole Nicki Minaj & Cardi B catfight...it was a great conversation, lol.




ABOUT YOTEL:
Yotel is definitely something unique! As soon as you walk in, you get the first class experience that you deserve! Inspired by luxury first class aircraft, this hotel gives you a futuristic feel and experience  that makes your stay anything but ordinary. With your stay, your 'cabin' makes things easily accessible and adaptable. Not only is Yotel a place for a great night's sleep, it's also features areas that are great for socializing!

THE ROOM:
First impressions may start right at the front door, but nothing beats walking into a clean room with a view! I stayed in the Premium Queen Cabin with a view, and I was so taken back by it all! I don't even know where to begin, because there's just so many positives to talk about with the room. First, there's the view: I love it when I wake up, and the first thing I see is the city and it's streets! There's just something so serene about a gorgeous view that makes my stay even more enjoyable. Secondly, there's the bed: now, you can't have the right enjoyable stay without a good night's sleep, and a comfortable bed can make a huge difference! Cool thing is, is that they have smart beds that can adjust the position with a touch of a button, to make for a comfortable sleeping (or work) space. Thirdly, I'd like to talk about the shower: I took a shower the first day, after a long day of being on an airplane and then heading straight to a NYFW party, and I was super impressed by the rainfall shower-head! I felt instantly relaxed, and was probably one of the best showers I've ever taken, lol!

Overall, the room features adjustable colored lights around the entertainment center, outlets galore, and convenient areas to work and hang your clothes. Yotel designed the rooms in mind for the ultimate use of innovative space to make your stay easier and enjoyable!

AMENETIES:
This hotel definitely has a lot to offer, and it doesn't stop short at just fast reliable wifi, an accessible gym, laundry service. Let's just say that it features amenities such as easy touch-screen check-ins in the lobby, cocktails on their breath taking terrace, club lounge that offers great coffee and snacks, and their YOBOT that conveniently stores your luggage if you arrive before check-in time! Also, they have Mission Control (aka front desk) that can give you the information to what ever help you may need.

EATS:
There's three places to eat/drink inside YOTEL:
-Green Fig Restaurant (offers a unique cuisine for both breakfast, brunch, and dinner)
-Club Lounge (which offers coffee, sodas, snacks, and breakfast muffins)
-The Terrace (offers breakfast, lunch, dinner, apps and cocktails)

WHAT'S NEAR BY:
The plus at staying at YOTEL? You're pretty much smack dab in the middle of NYC where you are conveniently located to popular sights, attractions, and eateries! If you don't mind walking, you're also in walking distance to places like Times Square, Broadway, Bryant Park, and Chelsea Piers!

You can also catch a cab and head your way to Central Park, 9/11 Memorial, Battery Park, SOHO, and you can also hop onto a ferry to see The Statue of Liberty. There's so much to do in NYC and so many different places to eat and grab coffee!
