There is one employee of the hotel that is mentioned fondly with more frequency on Tripadvisor than any other–by a mile. Check out these excerpts from guest posts:
“Staff are great, especially Ronnie who helped us every day with great advice.”
“The super friendly concierge, Ronnie was always on hand with great tips of where to go and how to get there, even gave us a sample of his famous chilli sauce to bring home to Australia.”
“Ronnie, the doorman/concierge/bellman and all-around nice guy, was a joy, and really symbolizes the heart and soul of the place.”
I would say that probably the most accurate description of Ronnie’s job is that of an ambassador. Ronnie Jenkins, a born and bred New Yorker, has been working for the hotel for seven years now and is the go-to guy when you need to know where you want to go to
or what you want to do. He’s a fountain of information…and more than happy to share his knowledge with all the guests so that their trip to New York is just that much better. No matter where you want to go, see, drink or eat, Ronnie has the perfect suggestion.
So it only makes sense that from time to time, this blog will ask Ronnie to share with us a tip that he’s currently passing along to his customers. Today he’s urging them to head to the Poetic License Festival, held at the at the Poetic Theater at 195 East 3rd St. The festival runs from January 21st through January 27th. The Poetic Theater is a theater company that works with both poets and playwrights to create a visceral, poetic theater. All for 5 to15 bucks. Yep, you read that correctly–no performance is more than $15.
Ronnie’s bringing his goddaughter, an aspiring poet, to the festival so you know it’s got to be good, right?
So check back with the blog and get more advice from our food and entertainment guru, Ronnie!
(Note to Ronnie: I’m not writing nice things about you to get a sample of your famous home-made hot sauce, although frankly that wouldn’t suck.)
