We have been informed, and rightly we believe, that the New Chelsea Hotel Management (aka: BD Hotels) did not actually avert a public relations disaster. It is, and still remains, a public relations disaster. We hope that it remains a public relations disaster until Stanley and David are back where they belong.
It's clear from the press release that perhaps these people have rarely stepped foot inside of the Chelsea. A top priority is to "create more inviting and livelier common areas." Have these people never stopped to talk to the lobby sitters? They're a pretty lively crowd.
