    Haha! I'm sure when I come to visit again I won't have $400 to spend daily. Unfortunately...

    But I already have living arrangements set up for 1 week so I'm good. No Palace Hotel for me.

    Benniest, you're young enough looking to where you can just "latch" onto some parent-looking hotel guest(s) and walk right in along with them.

    Haha! Very true... It'd be like a mission impossible episode trying to get into a fancy hotel.

    Hopefully they build their own building in NYC. Something akin to their Phillie tower.

    The nightclub where music greats Louis Armstrong and Tony Bennett once performed was closed in 2009 during a landlord-tenant dispute. The reopening was announced Tuesday, and an executive chef will be named in the coming months.

    Guests at the Rainbow Room dance on the revolving floor of the restaurant and nightclub in December 1998. The city granted the Rainbow Room landmark status this past October.


    The Rainbow Room opened as a supper club in 1934 after the repeal of Prohibition.

    Yawn. Quite a downgrade. At this point, the tower would be be better without a sign.

    At least whats there now (GE) tried to emulate what was there in the past (RCA)...
    This is just gross/crass...agreed- better without (sad).

    I like the old-school GE logo, sort of italicized 80's corporate font in red neon. It fits the building. The new sign looks like something from a 4 story suburban office park landscraper.
