Lodging near highest mountain peak in Northeast US proposed

Fri, 2 Dec 2016 22:11:34 UT

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The owners of a historic cog railway that climbs up New Hampshire's Mount Washington, the highest peak in the Northeast, want to build an upscale hotel a mile from the summit, in keeping with hotels that once graced the mountain in the 1800s, and to accommodate an increasing number of summer tourists. The railway owners are considering a 35-room hotel with a restaurant on their own land that would withstand the weather extremes of Mount Washington. The railway runs 3 miles up the west side of the mountain, and became the first-mountain-climbing cog railway in the world when it was built in 1869. The owners want to build a 25,000-square-foot hotel at the site of a train siding allowing trains to pass one another, called Skyline.

Thu, 1 Dec 2016 21:52:38 UT

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Airbnb will start enforcing limits to private home rentals in two popular European cities on the home-sharing platform, London and Amsterdam, the company said Thursday. In London, a typical Airbnb host earns 3,500 pounds ($4,408 ) by sharing their space for 50 nights a year. Since the company launched in 2008, when the co-founders invited travelers to sleep on an air mattress in their San Francisco loft, Airbnb has grown to be one of the world's most valuable private startups by collecting fees when private hosts rent out accommodations listed on the site.
