NEW YORK, May 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Manhattan-based hotelier Hank Freid may be a bit of a maverick in business, but to many budget-conscious travelers he could very well be Gotham's own Robin Hood. An innovator in the boutique budget hotel arena, Hank Freid offers travelers a unique experience and unprecedented pricing and service in the NYC area. In fact, this New York developer has made it his mission to share the big city's splendors with tourists from all over the globe and all walks of life through the Impulsive Group, his lifestyle hospitality company.

The Broadway Hotel & Hostel is just one of Freid's travel treasures.  Now, following a recent transformation, the premier property is defining a new hotel category in Manhattan. Taking privacy and comfort to a new level, the Upper West Side boutique property offers travelers a distinct combination of bespoke hotel-like amenities with a variety of accommodations, all at affordable rates. The property offers guests the choice of spacious semi-private rooms that feature one queen-size bed or two twin beds.  For a more intimate experience, travelers can book the hotel's private quarters, which offer en-suite bathrooms complete with a modern design. The stylish guestrooms accommodate a maximum of two guests per room, providing double the amount of space per guest. The Broadway offers signature amenities such as the state-of-the-art plasma televisions, a full communal kitchen complete with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, library with fireplace, plus high-speed Internet access and free Wi-Fi in the lobby lounge. Nightly rates starting at only $24 per person allow travelers to stay on a budget and use the extra cash to see the sights during their Big Apple visit.  

"We are taking the boutique budget hotel concept to the next level by adding more privacy and space, without losing the community atmosphere and sense of culture we created that our guests have come to know and love," said Hank Freid.  "Our travelers can enjoy the communal areas that bring our boutique properties to life, to watch TV and movies, trade travel stories and plan what's next, while having upscale amenities and services to retire to when the day is done.  It's the best of both worlds and what truly defines the boutique budget hotel experience."

The Impulsive Group's portfolio offers travelers a variety of options from the boutique

accommodations at Broadway Hotel and Hostel to the four-star luxury of the Sanctuary Hotel, located in the heart of Times Square. The crown jewel of the Impulsive Group's portfolio, the lavish and chic Sanctuary Hotel is scheduled to open in December 2010. Each Impulsive Group property carries its own distinctive character and charm and features and the latest amenities. There's even a Moroccan-themed hotel, the Marrakech Hotel, dressed with exotic and colorful North African artifacts and decor. Each hotel is conveniently located - yet another added value, with some room rates starting at only $139 per night.
