One hotel in New York has come up with a quirky way to attract high end customers through its doors. If you book a Suite at The Peninsula New York, you’ll have access to a chauffeur driven Mini Cooper S Clubman as a complimentary amenity! It might feel like a scene from The Italian Job as you traverse the city on four wheels – except with a little more luxury thrown in. The car and driver will be available for up to 3 hours per day for your sightseeing, excursions or shopping needs – meaning you can zip around the city at your leisure and see the best that New York has to offer.
The hotel’s concierge team have even created a series of self-guided three hour motoring tours to highlight the city sights. Each one can be accompanied with directions and customised tips available on a choice of iPhone or iPad for use during your Mini adventure.
Each stylish Mini Cooper is finished in the signature Peninsula Hotel green colour and is equipped with leather seats, a tailor made rooftop box to house any store purchases along with an iPhone mounting dock and a mini fridge stocked with cool drinks to keep you refreshed on your travels.
Guests simply need to book either a Junior Suite or a Junior Executive Suite at the hotel – both of which include marble bathrooms, a 42” flat screen plasma TV and a whole host of in-room gadgets including a TV and radio system with hands free telephone in the bathroom, an iPod docking station and the obligatory high-speed wired and wireless internet access.
Only one piece of advice, make sure you don’t go and blow the b—– doors off!
