Travelers wanting to experience life in the Big Apple will soon have more lodging choices courtesy of Airbnb.
Airbnb announced they are adding 200 apartment-style suites to New York City’s famous Rockefeller Center when they convert 10 floors in a partnership with RXR Realty LLC.
As part of Airbnb’s new category “Urban Lodging” the suites will offer stunning views of different NYC landmarks including the Empire State Building and give vacationers a taste of living like a local in the Big Apple.
“When we launched Airbnb over 10 years ago, it was immediately clear how people opening their homes could make guests feel like locals,” Airbnb’s Chief Executive Officer Brian Chesky said in a statement. “With this new partnership with RXR, we hope to provide that same unique feeling, in the form of new spaces in the heart of Midtown Manhattan and elsewhere so that everyone can enjoy an authentic New York experience.”
