Everybody go: Hotel, motel, Holiday Inn
You see, if your girl starts acting up, then you take her friend
I loved yodels as a kid, which is what I think of whenever I hear about the hotel chain Yotel. Or maybe yogurt, or motels, but it’s definitely not mohels. Or maybe the cool robotic arm they call a concierge that’s visible from the street at its 10th Avenue location. Hal would be proud. Or maybe I ask myself ‘Can you shoehorn a family of four into their standard mini-room?’ Anyway yesterday the company announced they’ll be opening their second NYC hotel in LIC. No location was given but a little snooping indicates it might be 38-65 11th Street just north of the Queensbridge Houses and across from Paretti Hall. It definitely will contain 178 rooms and a skybar with views of Manhattan. Who knows, maybe they’ll even leave yodels on the pillow at night?
