You know what a hotel is, of course. Andperhaps, you also know what a condo is--a residential(居住的) building divided into separateunits that are owned by different people. What you may not know is that in someU. S. cities, the two have come together into something called a "condohotel".
Some condo hotels can now be found in beachand mountain towns and a few small cities.However, none is more famous than thegreat lOS-year-old Plaza Hotel in New York, on Fifth Avenue across from CentralPark. The Plaza closed for repair in 2005. When it reopened two years later,more than half of it had been changed into one of these modern condo hotels.
Here' s how it works : You buy what equalsto an apartment (公寓).If it' s at The Plaza, it will cost you between $1.5 million and $9 million. Soyou own a part of the building. But there' s some inconvinience. You may staythere no more than 120 days a year. The rest of the time, the hotel' s workerscan book guests into your place,just as they would in the regular hotel' srooms. So if you' re lucky and rich,you can now live in really special quartersup to almost one third of the year,while others pay off your mortgage (房贷) the rest of the year.
So far,a great many of the nation's condohotel units have been purcltased not by rich peoplebut by richer companies,including foreign ones. They want a nice place for their bosses to stay when they'rein town or working late at the office.
