The popularity of vacation rentals just keeps growing against hotels, becoming more mainstream thanks to sites like #Flipkey, Homeaway, VBRO and Airbnb. Now vacation rentals are seeing more potential in the upscale side of things, taking inspiration from luxury and boutique hotels with added amenities and unique interiors.
MySuites is one company that has been on this trend since the late 2000s. Based in New York City, they offer a range of “boutique suites” for rent. These boutique suites are vacation rental apartments designed by the MySuites team and used exclusively by their guests. The apartments are found in areas popular with the locals, not the tourists, giving guests a more authentic NYC experience than a hotel. Suites are available in neighbourhoods such Chelsea, Greenwich Village, East Village, Meatpacking District, NoMad District and Nolita. In any suite, you’re just steps away from the best in dining, entertainment and shopping Manhattan has to offer.
What makes MySuites special over most vacation rental companies is that they are also a design studio. This allows them to do the interior design for all their suites, taking inspiration from their local NYC roots and including a mix of modern and vintage furnishings and decorations. They will often include pieces from favorite designers like Philippe Starck and Eames and will even let you buy items in the suites to take home.
The suites are either one or two bedrooms with full kitchens and living rooms setup to make you feel at home. Then to match the experience found at a boutique hotel, they offer services such as a concierge, driver, room service, grocery delivery, high-end gym access and a private chef. The result to their guests is a unique and personal NYC experience without forgetting the luxuries of a hotel if you need them.
