Have you got a book to finish writing but can't quite find the right setting to do it in? Consider The Standard East Village.

Once again, the hotel and The Paris Review have partnered up to put a lucky novelist up in a queen room room for three weeks this July (they did a similar stint in January.) The guest/writer will also get daily continental breakfast and unlimited coffee. Alas, you still need to put down a credit card for incidentals.

There are a few other caveats--namely, you must already have a book under contract with a publishing house (not your own self-pub shop) and you need to have at least a description and some sample pages of the project to show before the May 1 application deadline. But still, three weeks in Cooper Square, totally gratis? Sigh. If only we started shopping our hotel blogging memoirs sooner.

Not a writer, but still want to spend a night at the Standard East Village? Rates start at $375 a night in July.
