Your Chariot Awaits

The New York Palace has a lot of special features for guests, including our great décor, amenities, restaurants and stellar service. In addition, The Palace also offers guests rides to and from local events in the hotel’s luxurious Maybach.

Acquired in 2006, the Maybach is available to guests on a first come, first served basis within a 20 block radius of the hotel. The Palace’s driver, Braktia Salah, is the only driver of the vehicle. On a daily basis, Salah is responsible for taking care of the car as well as the guests that he is transporting.

“The Maybach has only been driven by me for seven years since it arrived at the hotel,” says Salah, who is originally from North Africa. “When I’m not working, the car is parked in the garage and waiting for me.”

Aside from the daily maintenance of the vehicle, Salah takes guests to Broadway Shows, top New York City restaurants like PER SE, museums and other points of interest that are located close to the hotel. In addition to the Maybach offering, he is very excited to see how renovations will enhance the overall guest experience at The Palace once complete.

In the past, Salah has driven many VIP guests, including royalty, entertainers and even famed basketball star, Shaquille O’Neal. Standing at over seven feet tall, we’re happy to report that Shaq was able to fit comfortably in our spacious Maybach!

This service is available free of charge for all guests at The New York Palace. If you’ve ridden in our Maybach, please share your experience with us in the comments below.
