Luxury for less: Score a top hotel for half the price
Finding hotels that deliver real bang for the buck isn't easy, but it is possible. In the series Luxury For Less, we show you some of Oyster's fanciest hotels, and where you can get a similar luxury experience -- for half the price. Sure, you might have to sacrifice a trendy brand name or 24-hour hallway butler, but you'll still be getting the same flavor of luxury. To start off, we're going to compare two stylish, downtown New York City boutiques: the hip Mercer Hotel in SoHo and the Smyth Hotel in TriBeCa.
