We will just let you digest that one on your own, as a warm up, of sorts."...a woman in a tank top and sweats approached to see if we wanted anything to drink. After she left, Nancy asked: "Does she work here? She looks like she's wearing pajamas!"
Shocking, a good-looking woman, in skimpy clothes serving you drinks at the Hudson!"The pay channels also offered four channels of porn - two hetero, one man-man and one bisexual. Nobody's kids are that hip."
What are you doing? We *know* you must have clicked through a couple firewall screens to even see the adult channel selection on the screen...jeez."There weren't any crayons, so I ran to the front desk to get a pad and pen."
There weren't any crayons! Are you for real dude? This isn't Chuck E. Cheese! What did you expect? Most people check into the Hudson, and put up with a coffin-sized room, just so they can enjoy the scene at the hotel. You, on the other hand, book a suite at the Hudson for your family of four and bitch about the lack of crayons? Why don't you do us all a favor and put that extra money into a 529 plan and look into family hotels the next time you need a hotel in NY. There are plenty of fun, cool, family friendly hotels in New York with pools and other kid friendly amenities. The Marriott Marquis has glass elevators, these elevators can keep kids entertained for hours on end.
Look, we know you want to experience the hipster locales in NYC, but save them for you next business trip, or the next time you can sneak away for a weekend. Either that, or suck it up, and realize that if you bring a family of four to the Hudson you are going to see scantily clad women, both in books and in the flesh, maybe get questionable looks from the staff and other guests, and have to explain outdoor showers to your 10 year old daughter. There is nothing wrong with a family staying wherever they please, but be prepared to put up with some hiccups if you chose to stay at a place known for its nightlife.
