Massive Luxury Hotel That’s Trying To Kill Airbnb

  1. 150$ IMO is a great rate but if it was 100$ it would have been a AirBnB killer

  2. I like his take on ideas. You adapt or you perish.

    Many people are complaining about the lack of staff but I think this is perfect for people who don't want staff constantly hovering over them. Reminds me of that almost 0% interaction ramen house.

  3. Not a bad idea and I respect the challenge to AirBnB but it still won’t beat it. AirBnB offers convenience of location, amenities, and privacy in the comfort of a real home for that same price. Some people honestly just want a place to crash for cheap when visiting.

  4. Great idea! My company supplies quality hotel bedding and towels, if anyone need these, please contact me, thanks.

  5. this is a really good idea but id take out all the restaurants and all that; only a big hotel with many rooms that the renters stay in and help themselves. a community air bnb/building if you will

  6. i like the idea, it would be great to see this expand to other major cities such as LA
