I’ve been traveling a lot lately for work (I’m actually blogging this while aboard Amtrak). Before I go anywhere, I always spend a ton of time looking for the perfect hotel: Convenient, youthful and stylish without breaking the bank. One of my favorite hotel concepts is citizenM. The boutique hotel has taken over Europe and recently made its way stateside to NYC. I was invited to the grand unveiling in Times Square and LOVED IT.
citizenM is made for the mobile citizens of the world. “The suits, weekenders, explorers, affair-havers and fashion-grabbers looking for boutique hotel accommodations.” The hotel strips bo-ring things like room service that no one really uses in lieu of aesthetically funky rooms, free wifi and dope art. It’s similar to a pod hotel but not as
janky minimalist. The lobby is especially awesome. Decked out like a high-end hotel, it offers a full-service coffee bar. This isn’t your motel thermos of coffee- the baristas have actually traveled around the world to learn the fine art of coffee.
Prices are very affordable for the style and personal touches citizenM offers, like the welcome tablets in the room. If you’re on a budget but want to live like a trendy, cosmopolitan baller-and who doesn’t?-check out citizenM and peep photos from the blogger unveiling party.
