When Yoii Go to New Tfork
Live at Hotel Pennsylvania because:
It's a hotel of character and distinction, built and operated for those
discerning travelers who want the best that New York can provide;
In going to the Pennsylvania you select a hotel accepted by people
of good taste and you can be proud of your New York address.
Extra-Comfortable The comforts and conven
iences of the Pennsylvania will add notably to the
pleasure of your New York visit. This largest
hotel in the world provides many extra thought
fulnesses in equipment and service that you will
appreciate such as the morning paper you find
under your door when you wake, but which isn't
charged in your bill; the reading light on the head
of your bed; the circulating icewater in your
bathroom; the full-length mirror in your room,
nnd so on through a long list of special things that
add to your satisfaction.
But What About Rates? Despite the extra
comforts and advantages of the Pennsylvania, its
rates are no higher than those of other hotels
of the. first class which are comparable to it in
character. Rooms for one person are $3,
$3.50, $4, $5 and $6; for two, $5, $6 and $7
(with twin beds, $6, $7 and $8); parlor suites,
$12 and up. Every room has private bath and
many other unusual conveniences, including those
And Here's an Instance of Policy: When
you buy a newspaper from the stand in the lobby
you pay just what you'd pay a boy on the street
two cents for a two-cent paper. That practice
typifies the square deal you're entitled to and
get in this good hotel.
