Ray: Nice, right?

 

CHRIS NEW TRACK:

AND THEN THERE’S THIS CRAZY PERK THE MARK’S 70 FOOT SAIL BOAT.

 

RAY:

SO WAIT, THAT YACHT IS PART OF THE 75 GRAND A NIGHT DEAL?

 

CHRIS:

ACTUALLY NO.

YOU HAVE TO PAY EXTRA FOR THAT.

 

RAY:

THE 75 THOUSAND DOLLARS ALREADY SEEMS PRETTY EXTRA TO ME.

 

CHRIS:

A TWO HOUR SAIL FOR TWO PEOPLE IS 5-THOUSAND DOLLARS.

 

RAY:

WOW, $75-GRAND A NIGHT AND 5-K EXTRA FOR THE BOAT RIDE IS TOTALLY NUTS.

I’M DYING TO HEAR WHAT YOU FOUND OUT ON BOOKING THE CHEAPEST ROOM HERE.

 

CHRIS:

OKAY SO THIS IS A FIVE STAR HOTEL. NOTHING HERE IS CHEAP.

THAT SAID, THE CHEAPEST TIME TO BOOK A ROOM HERE IS IN JANUARY, FEBRUARY OR MARCH.

AND ALSO IN THE SUMMER WHEN IT’S NOT AS BUSY.

 

RAY:

AND HOW MUCH WAS BEST DEAL YOU COULD FIND?

 

CHRIS:

595 BUCKS A NIGHT FOR A STANDARD ROOM

 

RAY:

AND HERE’S WHAT THAT ROOM  LOOKS LIKE.

 

CHRIS:

THIS ROOM IS 400 SQUARE FEET

(MEASURING ROOM + CEILING exactly 9 feet)

 

RAY:

THAT MEANS YOU COULD FIT 25 OF THESE 400 SQUARE FOOT ROOMS

 

CHRIS:

INTO THAT ONE 10,000 SQUARE FOOT PENTHOUSE UP STAIRS.

 

RP: Let’s check out what’s in the closet. Slippers- are these mens or womens?

//

RP: There’s a yoga mat in here, umbrella- bad luck dont do that.

 

RAY:

CHECK OUT THE BATHROOM IN HERE. IT’S HUGE.

 

CHRIS:

IT’S GOT A FULL SIZE BATH TUB. AND MONOGRAMMED ‘M’ TOWELS FOR THE MARK.

 

RAY:

SO THERE IS ONE THING THAT THIS SUITE AND THE PENTHOUSE BOTH HAVE IN COMMON.

 

CHRIS:

AND THAT’S ROOM SERVICE- NO MATTER WHERE YOU STAY IN THE HOTEL, IT’S PROVIDED BY JEAN GEORGES.

 

RAY:

IF YOU DON’T KNOW THE NAME.. HE’S CONSIDERED ONE OF THE TOP CHEFS IN THE WORLD.

HERE’S WHAT WE FOUND ON THE ROOM SERVICE MENU:

 

09:16:42 The least expensive thing for breakfast is the half-chilled grapefruit for $10 bucks-

09:17:10

 

RP: Let’s see what the most expensive thing for dinner is on this menu-

 

CHRIS:

The roasted free range organic chicken – a whole chicken? $90 bucks.

 

RAY:

ENOUGH WITH THE EXPENSIVE STUFF.

NOW LETS TALK ABOUT WHAT YOU CAN GET HERE FOR DIRT CHEAP:

 

CHRIS:

AND FOR THAT WE START OUT FRONT- WHERE THE MARK PARKS– A HOT DOG CART.

 

RAY:

A VERY FANCY CART THAT SERVES UP FIVE STAR HOT DOGS FOR JUST 6 BUCKS.

 

CHRIS:

JUST LIKE THE RESTAURANT AND ROOM SERVICE HERE – THIS HOT DOG CART IS RUN BY JEAN GEORGES.

 

RAY:

SO THESE ARE GOURMET WEINERS.

 

CHRIS:

AND THEY COME WITH SOME FANCY TOPPINGS.

 

CHRIS:

So I got an organic chicken hot dog with the works – sweet, spicy it’s really good. I like the Siracha.

 

RAY:

DOES JEAN GEORGE MAKE A GOOD HOT DOG?

 

CHRIS:

IT’S PROBABLY THE BEST HOT DOG I’VE EVER HAD.

 

RAY:

SO 75-GRAND GETS YOU ONE NIGHT IN THE PENTHOUSE OR 12,500 HOT DOGS-

 

CHRIS:

I THINK ONE DOG IS PLENTY!

 

RAY:

AND WHETHER YOU’RE A GUEST AT THE MARK OR NOT-

THE NEXT DEAL IS FREE

 

CHRIS:

YOU CANT BEAT ZERO BUCKS.

 

RAY:

TUCKED AWAY ON THE SECOND FLOOR –

 

CHRIS:

IS A FIVE-STAR SHOE SHINE.

 

RAY:

WHERE WE BOTH GOT OUR SHOES- CLEANED, BUFFED, AND SHINED BY HARRY.

[RAY SHOES GET SHINED]

 

RAY:

I ALSO CHALLENGED CHRIS TO COME UP WITH A MUCH CHEAPER ALTERNATIVE TO THE MARK’S FIVE THOUSAND DOLLAR SAILBOAT RIDE.

 

CHRIS:

AND I DELIVERED BIG TIME – WITH AN OPTION THAT’S COMPLETELY FREE.

Chris: It’s probably going to be a lot more fun.

 

RAY:

NOW THIS IS A STRETCH BUT GO WITH IT –

 

CHRIS:

AND IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE MARK HOTEL AT ALL.

 

RAY:

BUT JUST LIKE THE SAIL BOAT YOU’RE ON THE SAME RIVER WITH THE SAME VIEWS-

CD: It’s probably going to be a lot more fun. // RP: It will definitely be cheaper.

 

CHRIS:

ONLY INSTEAD OF BEING ON A YACHT-

 

RAY:

YOU’RE IN A KAYAK.

 

CHRIS:

OK, IT’S *NOT THE MARK’S SAILBOAT-

BUT IT IS 5 THOUSAND DOLLARS CHEAPER.

BOTH TAKE OFF FROM LOWER MANHATTAN.

 

RAY:

AND THAT’S WHERE THE SIMILARITIES END.

RP: He tells me that this is like the equivalent of going out on a yacht, now he’s like the yacht is much better. CD: Here you can’t get champagne, but you can get a view of the west side- RP: I actually put champagne on my water bottle. This is champagne toast to Chris rowing around.

 

CHRIS:

SO, I SPOT AN ORANGE FLOATING PAST OUR KAYAK.

I PLUCK IT OUT OF THE WATER AND I JOKINGLY OFFER IT TO RAY.

AND WATCH WHAT HE DOES.

 

21:15: Bites orange. It’s actually not bad.

 

RAY:

HALF A GRAPEFRUIT AT THE MARK WAS TEN BUCKS.

THE WHOLE ORANGE FLOATING IN THE HUDSON WAS TOTALLY FREE.

 

21:45 Yum (heh! laughs, spits it out.) Throws the other half away.

 

RAY:

SO -YOU CAN DEFINITELY BLOW A TON OF MONEY AT THE MARK:

 

CHRIS:

$75,000 FOR ONE NIGHT IN THE PENTHOUSE …

 

RAY:

$5 GRAND FOR A TWO HOUR BOAT RIDE-

 

CHRIS:

$10 DOLLARS ON HALF A  GRAPEFRUIT

 

RAY:

AND 90 BUCKS ON CHICKEN.

 

CHRIS:

BRINGING YOUR ONE DAY TAB TO OVER $80 THOUSAND DOLLARS.

 

RAY:

OR YOU CAN DO THE MARK ON A BUDGET:

 

CHRIS:

WALK OVER TO TRY THE  $6 GOURMET HOT DOG –

 

RAY:

WHILE  YOUR THERE GET YOUR SHOES SHINED FOR FREE.

 

CHRIS:

(DON’T FORGET TO TIP!)

AND THAN HIT THE HUDSON ON A FREE KAYAK

 

RAY:

AND IF YOUR LUCKY SOMETHING FREE AND TASTY MIGHT FLOAT BY

BRINGING YOUR TOTAL TAB TO 6 BUCKS.

 

CHRIS:

WE WANT TO KNOW: WOULD YOU EAT AN ORANGE FLOATING IN THE HUDSON?

LET US KNOW IN THE COMMENT SECTION.

 

RAY:THAT’S THE QUESTION WE’RE ASKING? WE JUST DID 8 MINUTES ON THE MOST EXPENSIVE HOTEL IN NEW YORK AND WE’RE ASKING ABOUT THE ORANGE?

 

CHRIS:DID YOU HAVE SOMETHING BETTER?

 

RAY:NOPE. — DON’T FORGET TO SMASH THE LIKE BUTTON, LEAVE A COMMENT AND SUBSCRIBE.
