We can't believe it. After years of delays, New York City's Six Columbus hotel is finally open. And the opening rates--as low as $200--are surprisingly good, given the chic vibe the place gives off and its great location.
Of course, our sis site HotelChatter has been all over this story from the get-go, and we'd be remiss if we didn't take a stroll down memory lane to see how we got here.
This is the story of the little hotel that could:

If you haven't already heard, a plane has crashed into the Beldaire Building on Manhattan's Upper East Side.
Details are still forthcoming about what type of plane and how it crashed but it is confirmed that there are residents and workers trapped inside. Heavy debris has also been reported falling from the building. However, this does not appear to be an act of terrorism. (Yet we think it's freaky that it happened today on 10/11.)
Our one hotel tip: If by chance you are staying in a hotel on the Upper East, getting back to your hotel room or out of it will be pretty hard as the streets are closed off near the crash. So check in with your hotel's front desk about what they are doing to assist guests. Also visit Gothamist and CNN for more information on the crash and how it's affecting the surrounding area.
