GPS Carlos Melia at Yotel New York City | New York, United States | Just Checked IN at my Premium Cabin at Yotel New York. I am fully fascinated by the concept and style of this hotel. Luxury cabins with full five-star services, avant-garde design and technology, a great location for a very affordable price. Where Mission Control is their version of a Concierge Desk, fully automated Check IN, a robot that stores your luggage and a real Dohyo is the restaurant and bar. I will be posting more upon departure, but I wanted to share this with you all, since I found it to be the coolest affordable hotel option in New York City. where you won’t jeopardize quality and service for price.

R Lounge at Renaissance Hotel Times Square | Times Square, New York City | Have you been looking for the most fantastic views of Times Square and Broadway.? Well stop, don’t look anymore, because I have found them for you, you must pay a visit and a drink or two, to R Lounge at the Renaissance Hotel Times Square. (FYI views are fantastic all day long, but to get the TOP experience, try to get your table book from 6PM on). Last night I was invited to the Renaissance Hotel Times Square, to assist to a private event to raise funds for the True Colors Fund (Cindy Lauper) sponsored by American Airlines, Grey Goose and my dear friend Troy Masters Founder and Publisher of Gay City News. Now I know where I want to be seating for next New Years Eve.
Surprise yourself with New York’s best kept secret. No matter what time of day, the views from R Lounge (voted Best Scenic View by OpenTable diners) are spectacular both inside and out. Boasting floor-to-ceiling windows and breathtaking panoramic views of Times Square, this new NYC lounge and bar comes as a welcome oasis and stylish escape from the hustle and bustle of Times Square. The menus by Chefs Jason Potter and Bromberg Brothers. American food, influenced by Italian and other international flavors. Items such as Blue Ribbon’s – by Bromberg Brothers recognized with a slew of “Top 10” and “Best Of” awards, northern fried chicken wings, grilled cheese paninis, BBQ pork sliders, and smoked salmon toast are available at R Lounge in addition to the hotel’s complete dinner menu.
As if all this wasn’t enough, and after a few glasses of Grey Goose and enjoying the views with local friends and colleagues, the one and only Ms. Cindy Lauper came in to the room, looking AMAZING like always. She welcomed everyone and thanked us for supporting the True Colors Fund. (see her full speech below)
