HOTEL CONDOS VS. RESIDENTIAL CONDOS
There are two types of condos – residential and hotel.

Only select units are condo hotel units. The majority of the condos cannot be rented out on a short term basis.
It’s easy to identify which condos are which. The unit numbers for hotel units are all numbers. The unit numbers for residential units are the floor number followed by a letter.
Residential condos have more expansive views to the hotel condos since they are on floors 29 to 89. The hotel condos are on floors 17 to 27.
Because hotel condo units are often occupied by paying guests it is very difficult to schedule showings! Your best chances are on a Monday or Tuesday in the early afternoon between the time the unit has been cleaned and the next guest has checked in.
