In Winston-Salem, NC where I now live, the prototype for the Empire State Building, i.e., the R. J. R. Reynolds Building [1] now has a Kimpton Hotel on the bottom 6 floors [2], and apartments on the 11 floors above [3]. There may be some way to arrange hotel cleaning for the residential apartments, or you could hire outside, but I believe residents also get access to many of the hotel amenities, e.g., the basketball court, etc., and of course the restaurant and bar. The building is beautiful, and there's plenty to do outside the doors as well on 4th St, Trade St, the other mini-downtown-areas, Innovation Quarter, Old Town Salem, etc., with some awesome biking / walking trails not too far away (round-trip to around Salem Lake is 16 miles [4]).

If I were to choose the hotel-like lifestyle that would be a good, perhaps affordable, option.
