Listen Now: Hotel Millennial: You Won’t Believe The Perks of This New Hotel
Millennials live by their own rules and one business is using that to its advantage.
Recently etiquette expert William Hanson reviewed New York’s Public Hotel for the Daily Mail. Opened in 2017, Public Hotel sits on the site of a former parking lot, has more than three hundred guest rooms, three penthouses, two bars and one restaurant. And all that is geared toward one type of customer; millennials.
When you arrive there is no doorman or bellhop, which means you carry your own bags, instead you open the door to two large copper escalators that make the perfect shot for Instagram.
Once you arrive at the top don’t look for the check-in desk. Instead each guest is emailed a code twenty-four hours before check-in. You scan this code on the reception ipads to confirm you’ve arrived and get a room key which you program yourself.
Once in the room, Hanson found twelve usb plugs, the option to order a Lyft and room service that you could pick up downstairs and eat on the go. And I bet they have avocado toast on the menu.
