New York’s Hotel Pennsylvania has created triple-bed and quadruple-bed (quad) guestrooms for families, tour groups, and sporting teams looking to share accommodations while in New York City.
The hotel says the rooms provide a way for budget-conscious travelers to stay in midtown Manhattan without compromising their location.
These triple and quad rooms provide three or four superior twin beds within the hotel’s larger, spacious suites. Rooms include all the hotel amenities, including full-size private bathrooms with a tub/shower; individual climate control; color TV with cable/pay-per-view movies/web TV; and access to the in-house fitness center.
“We want everyone to visit New York City and recognize that in this economy, budgets are tight. These unique room configurations address this need and are just perfect for families. They are clean and comfortable, particularly well priced on a per person basis,” says Jim Flynn, Hotel Pennsylvania’s general manager. “And with our ideal midtown Manhattan location, we’re close to all the major sites: Amtrak’s Penn Station, Empire State Building, theatres, and shopping.”
The triple-bed guestroom rates are available starting at $189 per night, plus tax. All rates vary seasonally. Quad guestrooms are limited and are available only by calling the hotel directly at 212-736-5000 or 1-800-223-8585.
Built in 1919 for the Pennsylvania Railroad and designed in the Art Deco style by the firm of McKim, Mead and White (which also designed the Waldorf Astoria and the original Penn Station), New York’s Hotel Pennsylvania has hosted millions of visitors in Manhattan and claims to have hosted more visitors than any other hotel in the world.
The hotel says it is one of only two hotels in Manhattan to earn the ENERGY STAR award for superior energy performance and efficiency.
Extensively renovated, the property has 1,700 rooms and more than 90,000 square feet of meeting and adjacent exhibit space. New York’s Hotel Pennsylvania is capable of handling conventions, tours, and individual traveler requirements. So many long-haul airline crews are put up there that Hotel Pennsylvania has its own airline crew lounge.
The hotel recently dedicated the lounge to Captain Chesley Sullenberger and the crew of US Airways Flight 1549, who safely guided all 155 passengers aboard US Airways Flight 1549 to an emergency water landing in the city’s frigid Hudson River on January 15 after the A320 in which they were flying hit a flock of Canada geese shortly after it took off from New York LaGuardia Airport and both engines shut down.
Hotel Pennsylvania’s location on 7th Avenue at 33rd Street is convenient to New York’s business and fashion districts and is a mile or so from the city’s Jacob Javits Convention Center on 34th Street and 11th Avenue.
The Hotel Pennsylvania is known for having the longest-running telephone number in New York City, immortalized in Glenn Miller’s famous song, “Pennsylvania 6-5000.” Reservations can be made to this number locally at 212-736-5000, toll free 800-223-8585, or on-line at www.hotelpenn.com.
