I am in a NY hotel for a few months for medical treatment. For a portion of my stay, someone from my church charity group paid. After that, I paid myself and everything was good. My reservation is until June 5th and I have the funds to pay until then. However, someone told my church that I actually have money (which isn't true) and that I want to stay free to agreed that portion do the reservation was closed (because it was a few weeks ago, he asked hotel for reimbursement. The manager here is helping me and didn't do it, but the man from the church called Amex and got a refund. Now the hotel threatens to evict me tomorrow if I don't pay. I could pay a portion, but not everything.
If you've been in the hotel for a few months, you CAN'T be evicted tomorrow. You actually should be able to hang in there until June 5 without much difficulty.
Dear New York Hotel Tenant:
In addition to having a paid reservation through June 5, 2016, you may have other rights derived through New York State and NYC law, that protect you as a hotel tenant, that depend upon, in part, the age of the hotel, the number of rooms, and the monthly or weekly charges for a room back in 1968. So you may wish to check out the information located at: http://www.lawhelpny.org/resource/notice-of-rights-and-duties-of-hotel-owners-a?ref=oHRJF
