    Good view or not?

    This is my view in my hotel in NYC

    It is a City View room

    I actually love it, reminds me of NYC in the 20's or something.
    I think it's a cool view

    But I could see where people think it's a shitty view

    PS..... there's a huge generator or something outside my window
    But I love ambient noise so I actually like it 555

    But I could see others marching down to the front desk and be like, are you kidding me!
    It is loud!

    ^ If I was given that room marketed as "City View" I would just laugh...I wouldn't complain or ask to move rooms..I would just find it very funny

    But I may never go back to that same hotel...555

    I like your optimism, M26. You always seem to find positive from what's given.

    PS : I should learn how to upload pictures so I can share my idea of what a 'good view from my hotel room' is...

    The hotel owners should be prosecuted for misrepresentation...555

    Give your photo and this one, to your Boss and ask him to please try to do better next time....555

    I was expecting to see spider man swinging between the buildings.
    not sure I would class it as a classic city view but city view it is non the less.

    No premium, it's like the 3rd cheapest room out of like 6

    My work never complains about my expenses but I like to keep my hotel expenses down.
    Most guys in my industry either have to pay 50% of their expenses or it's a % of their revenue.
    My firm pays it all

    So I try and keep the costs down but still stay in 4-4.5 star places by just do Priceline or Hotwire.

    One thing that helps my expenses tremendously is no one wants to do dinners anymore.
    People just want to go for drinks and get home.
    I love it, means I am usually done with clients by 7pm or so and have the rest of night for me

    The hotel is pretty cool and in a great location.

    I was thinking of paying up for a bigger room when I got in my room but although small everything works and I'm in my room for like 1 hour before out for the day and then come back and sleep. So thought fxuk it .

    Last night they had a band playing in one if their conference rooms, and they were pretty good.
    Great rooftop bar also

    Sometimes I like a boutique trendy place like this and sometimes they just get on my tires and I just want a regular hotel like a Hilton or Westin

    Fuck I wish I had your lifestyle. It'd shit me to tears at first but then I'd probably get used to it.
    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    I have a good mate who lives downtown in NYC...he takes a pic from his window everyday...this is more like what I would expect or be hoping for, from a joint advertising a "city view" in Manhatten...
