Finding a hotel in NYC can be brutal. Good thing SMW NYC has partners Morgans Hotel Group and GrandLife Hotels. At Morgans Hotel Group, you have options at the Hudson, Mondrian SoHo, Morgans and Royalton, all starting at $118 a night. And if you’re an Insider Pass holder, you get a free upgrade and WiFi. What’s not to like about that?
GrandLife Hotels is also giving a discount to attendees and Insider Pass holders! For 10% at the SoHo Grand, click here and for 10% off at the Tribeca Grand, click here. For those with an Insider Pass, you receive 15% off at the Tribeca Grand (details emailed to purchasers).
