The hotel is classy and cozy. The door man is a corrupt and crooked. Every request for a cab was accompanied by, first, a suggestion to take his buddies' town cars at a premium rate, then, once I insisted on a yellow cab, he would lead me to another friend waiting along the curb, who was willingly waiting for a "special rate." I eventually insisted on getting my own cab, and watched as the door man led one hotel guest after another to his pre-arranged rides, in every case exchanging cash with his drivers as he got his cut of the inflated deal. Crony capitalism thrives at every level in NYC.
