Bed & Breakfast (B&B) is familiar to most of us as quaint country homes nestled in small friendly villages, far removed from urban centers. Our agency, At Home In New York, offers B&B in one of the greatest cities in the world, with a diversity of accommodations including luxury apartments, townhouses, and artists' lofts.
Your choice among these may be the first step to a new and enriching travel experience, plus an economical alternative to an expensive hotel stay. We offer attractive and comfortable accommodations in prime locations throughout the city. Our B&B hosts are gracious New Yorkers, many of whom are artists and professional people who enjoy sharing their own special secrets and knowledge of the city (i.e. bargains, favorite restaurants, special haunts, events, etc.) ......
Our accommodations are located all over the city, from Lower Manhattan, Greenwich Village, Soho, Chelsea, Gramercy Park, the Upper East & West Sides, The Bronx, and Brooklyn. Just tell us where you want to be and we'll concentrate our search in your desired area.
Hosted B&B is a Bed & Breakfast in the home of a New Yorker. Guests are staying in the guest room of their host, who remains in residence, provides breakfast, and is available (but never intrusive) to give information and assistance to guests as they may require it. There are usually maps, menus of neighborhood restaurants, and other useful information on hand.
