Why Hotels Should Reframe The Narrative As They Open Back Up

The other day, I was reading a press release from one of New York's most luxurious hotels. For decades, it's been a bastion of wealth and privilege. I was curious, with the city beginning to reopen, how this particular establishment would approach its messaging to customers.

a piece of new york is gone: pete hamill, rest in peace

A piece of New York City died this week. Pete Hamill, a legendary New York journalist and possibly the last of a breed, died yesterday at age 85.  Obituaries describe him as a "tabloid poet" or "tabloid hero". If he hadn't existed, perhaps Raymond Chandler would have invented him.  It seems only fitting to let the Daily News tell his story.Legendary journalist and author Pete Hamill, a tabloid hero and teller of New York tales, dead at 85Pete Hamill, the Brooklyn-born bard of the five borou...

When building a startup, think like a buyer

Tyler Griffin Contributor Share on Twitter Tyler Griffin co-founded Prism Money, a consumer-focused bill payment tool, in 2012 and is now a managing partner at Financial Venture Studio, which invests in early-stage fintech startups. “Never run a dual-track process.” You’ll probably hear this advice if you ask an investor about raising money and selling a business concurrently, and it’s good advice.

State Travel Restrictions During COVID-19: A Complete Guide

As the coronavirus pandemic continues, travel restrictions are constantly emerging—and not just internationally.

Some states have imposed a mandatory quarantine upon arrival; in other destinations, negative COVID-19 tests must be presented to enter.

Enforcement Of Hotel Industry’s New Face Mask Rule Is ‘On A Case By Case Basis’

During a 1,800-mile road trip last month from Colorado to New York, Kelly Arthur and her daughter deliberately chose brand-name hotels that touted their COVID-19 safety protocols, from ramped-up cleanliness standards to policies on face masks and social distancing. Along the way, they were repeatedly disappointed by what Arthur says was a frustrating lack of follow-through.

This is incredibly frustrating for those eager for a much-needed summer vacation. Luckily, some destinations have already reopened their borders to international tourism, or set hard d...
