i was just checking out hotel rooms in nyc as my preferred host was fully booked -- and i remembered that surface was branching into a hotelier in lower east side -- http://surfacehotel.com/

does anyone know what happened to the venture? who knows what their business case looked like but surely, it wasn't the cleverest of ideas to launch a hotel in 2004 considering the business climate...

i've developed a nasty habit of replying my own requests, or maybe you're just ignoring my posts and i'm left to my own devices? anyway, the surface hotel is renamed to hotel on rivington and opening has been pushed back six months to october. surface magazine is still involved -- question is how i could have missed it, despite subscribing to it?

We got a press kit for this at work. The rooms are going to be $250 and up, and suites at $3200 if I remember right. Great location, but very bad for the neighborhood, as it's the first luxury hotel in a predominantly middle class area.
