The first New York City flagship location of Mint House, the tech-enabled hotel company offering apartment-style accommodations for the business traveler, will soon be opening at the historic 70 Pine Street building in Lower Manhattan. Scheduled for launch on November 20, Mint House at 70 Pine will be home to 132 suites that will reinvent the hotel stay experience for traveling professionals through a unique relationship with American Express Global Business Travel (GBT). The opening of 70 Pine will be the latest addition to the deal, which includes Mint House suites in four other major American cities: Denver, Miami, Nashville and Minneapolis.
Mint House’s high-tech, light-touch model naturally allows for effective social distancing and self-sufficient living via mobile contactless check-in and keyless suite entry in many locations, pre-stocked grocery delivery and pre-set smart thermostats — plus twice the space of traditional hotel rooms, full kitchens and in-suite laundry. This year, Mint House expanded upon its best-in-class cleaning regimen with the roll-out of the Mint Clean Standard, a set of rigorous cleaning processes that integrates a 74-point checklist and utilizes reactive oxygen species for continuous control. Ron Klain, former White House Ebola Response Coordinator and Mint House investor called it, “an industry-leading effort to keep guests and employees as safe as possible,” and “a carefully crafted plan to use technology, innovation and planning to reduce risk and protect guests”.
Mint House will be working with American Express GBT’s consulting and account management teams to help source new clientele and determine growth to new locations across the globe. “Together we are re-inventing the hotel experience for the modern business traveler,” said Lucas.
Located in the heart of the Financial District off of Pearl Street in a historic art-deco landmark, Mint House at 70 Pine will offer guests a one-stop-shop in Lower Manhattan, complete with Michelin-starred restaurant Crown Shy, an Australian-style coffee shop, a gourmet grocer, state-of-the-art fitness centers, golf simulators, and a bowling alley. In-suite, travelers will have access to local coffee from Brooklyn-based Sey, record player with curated vinyl selection, custom-designed furniture and accents, and Mint House’s industry-leading technology, smart TVs, a 24-hour digital concierge, and pre-stocked grocery delivery. One travel procurement executive from a Fortune 500 company said, “Mint House ticks all the boxes. You have resolved the sore points in the industry.”
