TikToker finds hotel window opens on operating restaurant

One of the best parts of eating in a restaurant is listening to dates. You might like to think you’re better than that, but you’re not, because the second you feel the tension in someone’s voice two tables away, it’s nearly impossible to get over it. ‘ignore. Now, what if you had a one-way mirror and could watch random people chatting over dinner for hours on end, wouldn’t they be wiser? What if the mirror opened and you could grab something straight from their table and eat it yourself? A TikTok user experienced this exactly when she discovered that the window of her Airbnb rental in a Manhattan hotel opened directly onto a fully operational restaurant.

Desiree Baker (@desireerosebaker) posted on December 20 on her arrival at Cassa Times Square, where she expected a room with a view of Manhattan, as advertised in the photos in the ad. Instead, she said, “I pull the blinds, there are no buildings. We are in a restaurant. Showing and not just saying, she pulls the blackout curtains across the room, revealing a couple having dinner directly outside her window, though they seemingly have no idea she’s there because the windows were set up as windows. one-way mirrors.

In the follow-up videos, Baker is contacted by one of the guests she filmed a dinner just outside her bedroom and went to Tempura NYC restaurant to bang on her bedroom window, which her friend then opened. Restaurant staff even gave her shots of tequila – in glasses that she could return by ironing them out the window and placing them directly on the table.

Baker attempted to contact his hosts through Airbnb and reportedly has received the following message:

Hi Desiree, apologies for taking [sic] a little time to replay [sic] you, in fact, we were going to cancel your reservation because we had room problems, but we were able to accommodate you.

I believe everything went well during your stay and I am happy to know that we were able to accommodate you at this time of year.

Best wishes

After seeing the TikTok, Airbnb contacted Baker and gave him credit.

Looking at the photos of Cassa Times Square and Tempura NY, it looks like the hotel built the restaurant on an outdoor terrace. Looking at the interiors of the restaurant, Baker’s bedroom window appears to be right in the corner of the dining room.

While I understand what the problem is, I also don’t, because this piece looks amazing. Post in my hotel room with wine and listen to strangers trying to understand each other around downtown tuna rolls? What else could you wish for from your New York vacation?
