Yotel to open in New York in 2011

Yotel, the revolutionary hotel concept described as “The iPod of the hotel industry”, has announced its fourth project, a 669-cabin property opening in New York City next Summer. It will be the first Yotel to open in a city centre, following the launch of the brand in airport locations such as Heathrow, Gatwick and Amsterdam Schiphol.

Cabins will offer customers 16square metre of private space providing luxury bedding, monsoon rain showers, mood lighting and YOTEL’s ‘techno wall’ with flat screen TV, and complimentary WiFi will now soon be on offer to those visiting the Big Apple.

YOTEL CEO, Gerard Greene stated: “A solution to boring and expensive hotels YOTEL uses radical design to offer the customer an exciting product and better value for money.  Not satisfied with airports we are now transferring a successful brand to city centres across the globe.

 Joe Sita, President of partners IFA Hotel Investment, added: “We’re very excited with the opening of YOTEL New York as this is our fourth property to open. YOTEL is different from other investments we have in the hotel sector and we truly believe it represents the future. It is a brand that is going to grow exponentially in the next few years”
