– “How to Buy a New York City Hotel” – by Nicky Hopkins (ABS) article A new book by Nick Hopkins aims to show how a hotel can become a place of love and beauty.
In this New York-based book, Hopkins tackles one of the biggest challenges to becoming a luxury hotel in the city.
“The Hotel is a way of life,” Hopkins tells The New Yorker.
“You go to a hotel and it’s an experience that is almost as personal as you are.”
In the past decade, more than half of the luxury hotels in the world have closed their doors.
In the United States alone, there are almost two million hotels, with some closing in the same decade.
Hopkins believes that the hotel industry is facing a similar crisis, and it is only going to get worse.
“This is a big problem for hotel owners because they are so dependent on their properties for revenues,” she says.
“And there is a lot of money that they can’t invest into things like new hotel construction, because they don’t have the capital to do it.”
Hopkins says that the industry has been losing ground to Airbnb, which has taken over hotel rooms.
“If they were really interested in having a hotel, they would build new hotels and not build new luxury hotels,” she explains.
“They should be doing that for a good reason.”
Hopkin is not alone in her views.
A study by the Pew Charitable Trusts found that hotel rooms have become so expensive that they could become unaffordable for many people.
“I don’t want to say that this is an epidemic,” Hopkins says.
“But I think that this has gone so far that the average person is not able to live with the rent, which is outrageous.”
Hopkinson says she believes that Airbnb will become the dominant luxury hotel industry.
“It will be like the Titanic that is being towed out to sea,” she predicts.
“There are no guarantees.
But I believe that Airbnb has a very high chance of succeeding.”
The hotel industry in New York has been hit hard by the recession, but Hopkins hopes that it can overcome the challenges.
“People in New Jersey are already talking about how they are getting back on their feet,” Hopkins explains.
“In New York, the people who are trying to save the industry are not trying to do so by changing their laws, they are trying, with the support of Airbnb, to change the laws that they have.”
You see this happening all over the country, where there are people who have lost their homes, and are trying desperately to get by.
The people who want to stay have been pushed out by the economic downturn.
But if we have enough pressure to push back, maybe we can push back the housing crisis.
