I run a graphic design company in NYC called Hotiron Creative.
I like a nice hotel. But I prefer to have spare cash for dining, experiences and travel. I recently discovered the joys of staying with others and renting out my own place, and I've met some of the most amazing people that I probably would have never met otherwise.
I used to host with a lovely studio in Midtown East, but the gov threw down the gauntlet. Gah! Miss those days and my awesome guests.
Anyone who hosts me is welcome to swap with my gorgeous east village loft. :)
