Yotel is a new hotel near Times Square and the Port Authority. The decor is futuristic, bold and seemed to appeal to many European visitors. Yotel has other locations based in London and Amsterdam.
The rooms were very clean, however, there were a lot of kinks still being worked out. During our stay, we had a discounted rate of $179ish/night. In addition, there was a power outage which resulted in alarms at odd hours in the morning, a lack of air conditioning and limited lighting. As a result, for that one evening, we received a refund.
The hotel lobby has sign in kiosks, similar to self-check in counters at drug and grocery stores. There were assistants helping folks check in and out. The one issue was there was not information provided about the times breakfast was served. If you arrive early, hotel guests can get coffee, a small muffin and purchase fruit for $1.00 each.
