So remember this incident?
Well, I didn't tell you, dear readers, where we stayed...
Remember how I told you that I wasn't staying at a Best Western? I was serious.
Pretty swanky lobby, no? What isn't pictured is the nice gentlemen who wait at the elevator and sometimes even check your key if they think you don't belong in their establishment (not that that happened to me or anything...)
Overall, very nice hotel. Good service (barring the whole locked out of the room thing...but even then they were nice). Great location (right on Central Park). A little traffic-y (one of the drawbacks of being right by the park, I guess). Would have definitely recommended it to a friend.
Fast forward to this weekend...
Woman is Found Strangled at Luxury Hotel on Central Park
In case you are too lazy to click on the link I will give you the run down...a woman from Dubai had been living in the hotel (Essex House) since August (WHEN I WAS STAYING THERE) and was found dead (and naked) in her apartment Saturday afternoon with a knife still in her neck. The head of housekeeping has been arrested in the murder (and attempted rape)...he used his Master Key to get into the apartment and commit the murder.
An even scarier account of things that makes the NY Times article look tame.
Is this not the scariest thing you have ever heard?
All I need is something else to add to my neuroses.
