If Craigslist job openings are any indication, it appears the Flatiron Hotel (1141 Broadway at 26th Street) has struck some sort of lease/sale/arrangement with the guy behind Hotel Toshi, Robert ‘Toshi’ Chan.

Here is an excerpt from the job listing. “We are currently putting together a hotel and restaurant management team for the Flatiron Hotel Toshi: front desk staff, sales reps, project managers, epicureans, and creative curators (for visual and performance arts initiatives).

The Flatiron Hotel was finished in April and ready for occupancy…but immediately put on the market for sale. It is said to feature 64 rooms, a lobby with a 20,000 gallon aquarium (see photo left), space for a restaurant, and has a 200 square foot rooftop ready for a lounge.

Originally it appeared to be a Meyer Jabara managed hotel, and more recently is said to be at the center of a lawsuit with the owners. The location is prime considering the continued growth of the Madison Square Park area. The rooms are said to be delivered turnkey with ‘jacuzzi bath or Swiss rainfall showers, surround sound entertainment systems, LCD tvs,  marble bathrooms’, and the hotel apparently can be ready to open within 30 days of closing.
