For our daughter's August wedding in New York City, the vast majority of those attending were from out of town. So in the early spring we visited a bunch of west side hotels (the wedding was held at Chelsea Piers, so we wanted people to be staying close by), and we chose the Yotel based on the friendliness of their event planner Maysoon and the deal she was able to offer us.
Also, the Yotel has a funky youthful vibe which everyone in our family liked. They call the rooms "cabins" and yes, they are fairly tiny, and it takes a minute to figure out where all the light switches and stuff are, but they are pretty well stocked with all the amenities you need. For the wedding weekend, all people really needed was a place to sleep and a place to shower and get dressed in, and the Yotel rooms were more than fine for that.
And for hanging out, the 4th floor spaces served us well. The first day everyone was there, a bunch of folks congregated in the Yotel restaurant for afternoon coffee. At various other times we gathered to chat and meet and greet and so forth. All went well.
And then the big day arrived, and Maysoon upgraded our daughter from a junior suite to the presidential suite and there were lots of tears and omg's and the makeup and hair people were there with the photographer and all the wedding party and it was a happy scene and wow, the day started with a bang.
In short, the day was all we had hoped, just the most amazing day for our girl and her guy and all our family members, and Maysoon and the Yotel played a major part in making it happen, and we will always always have a special place in our hearts for them.
