Suddenly, the hotel itself became the destination.

The decades between 1880 and the 1920s were glorious ones for Manhattan. This sliver of land located between the rivers was evolving from a bustling seaport into a world financial center. Steamers were becoming a frequent and luxurious mode of transportation. They arrived in Manhattan carrying passengers from all walks of life-the very rich and the very poor.

Manhattan has long been renowned for the diversity of its offering of hotels‚―from some of the best in the world to some of the worst. Around 1880, the entire nature of the hotel experience began to change. Formerly, hotels had been just a place to stop between here and there for a hot meal and a warm bed. Suddenly, the hotel itself became the destination. New affluence, new technologies, and new fashion all came together in the decades between 1880 and 1920 to influence the demands of hotel guests, eventually changing the hotel themselves. This book gives a glimpse into the hotels of the super rich, the not-so-rich, the middle class, the Bohemians, and the workers. In a city as dynamic as New York, it should come as no surprise that so many hotels have a juicy tidbit or two of historical gossip attached to them. Manhattan Hotels: 1880‚–1920 may well be the most extensive work in print on the subject of the city‚’s hotels in this period. Farfrom being a book for specialists, however, it is designed to bring Manhattan and its hotels of this era to life for all those who have been captivated by the electric excitement of the place.

A good book but I wish there were more photo's of turn of the century hotels ,there are many and date up to the 1920's with information about architects and each was built.

I. needed a picture of the Murray Hill Hotel in New York and this was the only place I could find it. It was great, perfect and will be a great asset to the book I am writing.
