NEW YORK, NY – New York-based hotel, Hotel 3232 gives patrons something to look forward to: a fully equipped kitchen including fresh food waiting in the fridge. Perks such as personalized grocery services are an emerging trend in a growing number of hotel chains [source: http://www.nhbr.com/February-7-2014/Personalized-grocery-delivery-a-growing-trend-at-hotels/], spearheaded by the Manhattan boutique hotel, which is known for its outstanding guest service.
Located near Park Avenue in midtown Manhattan, Hotel 3232 specializes as a luxury boutique hotel, offering a number of deluxe rooms that are equipped with a kitchen and dining area, which results in a cozy and welcoming atmosphere – a breath of fresh air compared to the mostly sterile and uninspiring hotels that accommodate tourists in the area. Mark Shemel, CEO and Principal of Think Properties, was surprised to see just how excited many guests are about the new grocery shopping service: “Sophisticated travelers would rather not be bombarded with takeout menus as soon as it is lunch time. Providing kitchens that come with everything they need is handy but shopping for groceries often proves to be a challenge in a city that you don’t know. Our staff are all locals, they know where to get exactly what our guests want and are always happy to walk the extra mile to guarantee a memorable stay at our hotel.”
Hotel 3232 is at the forefront of a new trend in the hotel industry: According to USA Today, travelers are increasingly attracted to services that can provide them a home-like experience [source: http://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/hotels/2013/09/10/hotels-room-service-grocery-deliveries/2788329/], while a survey by PKF Hospitality Research reports that room service revenue on the other hand has dropped by as much as 9.5% from the year 2007 to 2012. Hotel 3232 has recently introduced a number of new services true to their slogan “a home away from home”, including free bicycle and gym clothes rentals in addition to the complementary gym membership for the duration of the stay, and a special storage service for returning guests, mostly businessmen, that allows them to leave personal items at the hotel rather than carrying them back and forth on every trip. Leisure travelers are well taken care of too, of course: Organized tours, ticket procurements to shows on Broadway, or club reservations – the expert concierge services is available around the clock and knows how to turn a trip to New York City into a truly unique experience.
Hotel 3232 is located off the corner of Park Avenue and offers luxury private accommodations in the heart of Manhattan, surrounded by landmarks such as the Empire State Building, the New York Library, Times Square, and much more. Floor to ceiling windows are one of the hotels most notable features all of which overlook the 19th century brownstone streetscape. Queen and Studio units come with private balconies while its Deluxe Suite grants guests access to a private roof deck with spectacular views of New York City’s skyline. Transport hubs like Grand Central Station and Penn Station are within walking distance, as are numerous subway stations, making it the perfect starting point for business trips as well as sightseeing adventures.
