Tourists arrive to find illegal hotel out of business

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - Some tourists are finding themselves out in the cold during this warm weekend.

They booked rooms for this weekend at what they thought was a hotel on West 73rd Street in Manhattan, but when they tried to check in they were turned away.

The hotel turned out to be illegal, as it was instead made up of a block of apartments inside a residential building.

Its operator, a company called WooGo Group, was evicted.

It’s believed that 80 of the building’s 200 units were being rented as hotel rooms.
