At Goldman Sachs, Trimming Costs Means Bunking at Embassy Suites

  1. Staying at the Embassy Suites Hotel in lower Manhattan has its perks: The nightly manager's happy hour features free beer and popcorn. Flash a room key and earn a seat at the complimentary all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet and a 10% discount at the Chevy's Mexican-style restaurant next-door.

    Guests can also rub shoulders with the bankers at Goldman Sachs Group Inc., which recently ordered that its employees stay there when visiting New York headquarters.

    It's a far cry from the plusher digs Goldman employees used to enjoy at the Ritz-Carlton and the Carlyle. But cost-cutting and government oversight mean finding out how the other half lives.

    Some of the bankers aren't happy with the switch. "No one's supposed to complain out loud, but, let's face it, we're spoiled," says one Goldman employee. "They turned us into hotel snobs."


    :D :D :D

    Well, it makes a little sense since it is literally in the shadow of their new headquarters.
