The YMCA of Greater New York today unveiled updated guest rooms and hospitality services in branches across the City and launched a new website that showcases the organization’s commitment to offering travelers and residents “a place to sleep in the city that never does.”

Each guest room, which are similar to a youth hostel, features private or semi-private rooms, complimentary use of the Y’s pools and fitness centers, 24/7 security, no curfew, courteous staff and housekeeping service, cable television and air conditioning, and easy access to public transportation. Google maps on the new website highlight all the restaurants, shops, and cultural attractions each exciting destination has to offer. Overnight rates average about $90 and special group discounts are also available. New and improved facilities include three great locations in Manhattan, hip neighborhoods in Brooklyn, and one of Queens’s hottest destinations:harlem_guest_room

“Whether it’s to visit the Big Apple from abroad, or to tour college campuses, or to take a City break, the YMCA offers a wonderful travel alternative that’s safe, affordable, and ideally situated in three of the five boroughs,” said Eileen O’Connor, Vice President of Operations of the YMCA of Greater New York. “Historically, the YMCA of Greater New York guest rooms have hosted a number of luminaries over the years including Civil Rights leader Malcolm X, playwright Tennessee Williams, and ‘beat’ author Jack Kerouac. We’re excited to write this new chapter with the unveiling of our updated facilities and launch of our new website.”

The website was designed and developed in partnership with Blue State Digital. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to continue our long-standing relationship with the Y,” said Rich Mintz, Blue State Digital’s Executive Vice President. “It’s our hope that the updated site experience not only attracts new users to these incredible spaces, but also helps them know New York more deeply. YMCA Guest Rooms are important: they’re embedded in the communities they serve, making them a genuine—not to mention fun—way to experience the city.”
