The Standard floor plan is posted in the room. • Paper, decoration or other items cannot be taped or otherwise attached to the doors, walls, or ceilings of the Room without prior permission of HI-New York. • Only registered guests and staff are permitted beyond the public area on the first floor. • Food & Beverages are permitted in the Community Room but at the conclusion of your meeting, please clear the tables of all cups, plates, napkins and dispose of in the trash receptacles provided. If more trash bags are needed, please ask at the Front Desk. Spray cleaner and paper towels are to wipe down tables of food and beverage residue. If the space is left in an unsatisfactory condition, there will be a minimum cleaning charge of $25.00. • Please ask your guests to be respectful of guests and other visitors to HI-New York, and keep noise and activity levels to a minimum outside the function rooms. • Organizations will be expected to bring their own supplies such as paper, pens, and other office supplies.
