The 56-square foot hotel room

Tiny is in during these tough times.

A New York hotel is offering a touch of luxury on a small scale. The Jane Hotel in Manhattan has rooms that are just 7 feet wide by 8 feet long.

That's just a little bigger than the bed. But the rooms go for less than $100 a night. That's a micro-price in the Big Apple.

The Jane's roomettes have luxury amenities such as 350-thread count sheets, a flat-screen TV and free wireless Internet.

Co-developer Sean MacPherson says they want to make the Jane feel "charming and special" rather than just cramped. But guests will have to give up a bit of privacy.

The rooms are too small to have private baths, so the bathrooms are shared.
