Rent a Room in Greenwich Hotel for $15 a Night (Seriously)

Screen shot 2010-02-16 at 3.19.16 AMTired of waking up your roommate every time you and your significant other get at it? Want some privacy without sacrificing traditional dorm culture? Well, according to the WSN, NYU is allowing students to rent a room at Greenwich Hotel for $15 a night for up to two consecutive nights. That’s cheaper than most motels in Las Vegas. No, seriously.

Of course, there’s a catch. The policy only really applies to NYU commuters, often tired of heading back home after a long night of a) meetings and studying in Bobst, and b) drinking enough for the parents to smell.

WSN also reports that commuters would have to notify G-Ho management by noon of the day they planned to reserve a room, and check-in between 5 and 11 p.m. The available rooms were previously “used exclusively for traveling staff and faculty and were opened to commuters during finals week.”

We know the policy technically only applies to commuters, but we would love to see a non-commuter student try to stretch that. Here’s something to keep in mind: Greenwich Hotel is only a few blocks away from Cubbyhole and Stonewall Inn. Just saying.

    HAH – “Greenwich Hotel is only a few blocks away from Cubbyhole and Stonewall Inn.”

    I would argue that, when visiting either of those establishments, finding somewhere to sleep at the end of the night is the least of your worries. Though I guess it would be kinda cool (or terrifying) to tell someone unfamiliar with NYU that you want to take them back to “G-Ho.”

    Opening up the article by mentioning the roommate aspect got my hopes up and then I was really disappointed. Was that the reaction you wanted in a reader…?

    This is going to make satisfying my creepy fetish of briefly occupying random rooms of college dorms for cheap prices run so much more smoothly.
