Citylife to open ThirtyThirty value-priced hotel

NEW YORK -- This summer, business and leisure travelers will have another hotel choice in the city when the Citylife Hotel Group opens ThirtyThirty.

This will be the third hotel in two years for Citylife, which last year opened Habitat and On the Ave hotels.

Like its sister hotels, ThirtyThirty, which will be located at 30 E. 30th St., will appeal to "contemporary budget travelers" with room rates that will run from $125 to $175 a night.

In addition to serving the city's booming leisure market, ThirtyThirty is expected to draw a large part of its clientele from visitors to the burgeoning businesses along "Silicon Alley."

"We're in an ideal spot for anybody coming to the city, whether guests are working for a dot-com or want to visit the Empire State Building," said Ralph Stephenson, general manager.

"We're near terrific restaurants and even some of the city's great one-of-a-kind venues."

ThirtyThirty is close to several educational institutions such as New York University Medical Center, the School of Visual Arts and the Fashion Institute of Technology.

Also close by are the New York Public Library, the Pierpont Morgan Library and the City University of New York's Graduate and Research Library.
