City CoPilot Courts AirBnB Set with ‘Front Desk’ Services on Orchard Street
With so many cash-strapped residents turning to AirBnB for additional funds, a new symbiotic business waits in the wings. That company would be City CoPilot, whose sole purpose is to be a “front desk” of sorts for travelers staying in and around the Lower East Side.
City CoPilot just unveiled its brick-and-mortar presence over the weekend at 143 Orchard Street (formerly Express Tailor which moved to Clinton Street). The new store offers services such as short-term luggage storage for hosts and guests, and a “key exchange” system.
Their mission statement is so obviously geared toward the AirBnB set:
We make checking in and checking out easier for hosts and guests. City CoPilot is your trusted point of contact for all of your check in and check out needs. From holding traveler’s bags to facilitating a key exchange.
City CoPilot officially opens to the public this Friday (October 10).
