As Out NYC, the new all-gay, all-the-time hotel and nightclub in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen, trots along to its revised opening day, some interesting details have emerged.
With the ribbon-cutting on the hotel portion set for March 1, they’re taking reservations now—with rooms starting at $229.
But for those of you pinching your pennies (and aren’t we all), there’s another option: For $99 you can book a “Sleep Share”: a “nature-inspired” communal room you share three other guests, with each of you given a bed, cubbyhole, 22″ TV and privacy curtains.
Hmm, we’re trying to imagine how that’s gonna go down, especially considering that a gay nightclub, XL, will be just downstairs.
Three different scenarios pop into our head:
1. It’ll be like those pod hotels in Japan: No-fuss, peaceful and convenient.
2. It’ll be like a hostel in Amsterdam: young and social with a party atmosphere.
3. It’ll be like a bathhouse in Prague.
Come to think of it, we’re good with any of these scenarios.
What about you—would you share a hotel room with strangers?
