CitizenM is at It Again, This Time Dissing Luxury Hotels
Last week, CitizenM Hotels dissed Holiday Inn on the internet by "selling" an old front desk on Craigslist as part of an April Fool's Day joke. Today, they've done it again--by parking a stretch-limo out in front of the Trump International Hotel near Central Park with a sign on the side of the car that says,
"Luxury is free WiFi and XL beds, not a stupidly long car."
The limo also drove by a few other NYC hotels like the Grand Hyatt and The Plaza as CitizenM said to "to make our point and also annoy the doormen."
We kinda love CitizenM for calling out these hotels are their WiFi policies and for annoying the doormen with a ridiculous limo but hello, Citizen M! Rates at your Times Square property aren't exactly affordable either, with one reader telling us rates were over $300 a night after your grand "reopening." For teeny rooms. At least at the Trump, we get some more space.
So keep on fighting the good fight but also maybe consider lowering those room rates a touch.
UPDATE: The Trump Hotel actually has free WiFi so this kind of didn't work out right.
