Wel-come to the Hotel Penn-syl-vania (doo doo doo doo doo doo DEW DEW)

Hotel Pennsylvania

The Hotel Pennsylvania! What a fine hotel. It was designed by McKim, Mead & White, the same firm who designed Pennsylvania Station, right across the street! You can definitely see the resemblance, with the columns, the stately appearance, and the sorta-Grand Central-y feel to it. The former Pennsylvania Station was destroyed in 1963. You might recognize it today as Madison Square Garden!

York Restoration Corporation hasn’t yet had a chance to stay a night at this fine hotel, but – the reviews seem to agree that it’s a fine example of a luxurious, classy, well-respected up-scale hotel.

That reminds York – what’s the difference between a HOtel and a MOtel? It seems to York that motels are usually smaller, strip-mall-appearing things off the sides of semi-abandoned rural highways, whereas hotels usually carry a sense of class and expense.

But then again, what do we know? Just one of those odd questions that no one seems to know a definitive answer for.

Until someone tells us, we’ll keep substituting one for the other.
