The Sanctuary Hotel Wants You to Peek In On Their Dress Rehearsal (at $159 a night)
Manhattan is a hotbed of hotel openings right now so if a trip to New York is on your agenda this fall, there are plenty of new hotels to try out. But some of them might be a little out of your budget like The Crosby Street Hotel at $459 a night and Ink48 at $269 a night. So to get a deal, you might need to try a hotel that's not quite all the way open yet, like The Sanctuary Hotel.
This is a hotel that we've been waiting a long time to see (like since 2006). Located in Times Square, the hotel is still known as The Portland Square Hotel but the Impulsive Group is in the process of giving it a multi-million dollar facelift to transform it into The Sanctuary. As of now, only nine of the hotel's 122 rooms have been completed renovated and updated. But they look pretty cute, even if the rest of the hotel still needs some work.
Guestrooms feature plush beds with European linens as well as 32- to 42-inch plasma televisions and iPod docking stations. The bathrooms boast a unique open design featuring quarried marble as well as a glass enclosure with a rain showerhead surrounded by adjustable drapery to create an intimate bath experience. Several of the guestrooms also showcase the original structure of the hotel with exposed brick or metal beams adorning the ceiling.
From now through March 31, 2010 the hotel is offering a "Dress Rehearsal" rate of $159 a night for one of the hotel's nine Sanctuary Studio rooms. When the hotel finishes the entire overhaul, the rates will go up to $309 a night.
And that's not all. If you provide feedback about your stay (via email to email@example.com or to a hotel executive), the hotel will give you an additional $50 credit for a future stay.
To book the Dress Rehearsal rate go online to www.portlandsquarehotel.com and enter in the code DRESS1. Be sure to select the "Studio Accommodations." The only buzzkill is that it looks like the deal does not apply to any weekend dates, only weekdays. And it's also based on double occupancy so bring a friend.
