Sophisticated north Chelsea sleep with an all-American restaurant, a spa, and killer skyline views
This glass-and-steel tower on a roaring stretch of Sixth Avenue is easy to spot for its rows of neat shrubs and constantly revolving doors. Inside, the enormous lobby is kept cozy with carved wood panels, red marble floors, and a genuinely welcoming staff. The check-in desk is in front of a giant red velvet curtain, from behind which peeks a tiny bit of a Renoir-like painting of a blushy female nude—a coy touch that’s echoed across the property. Ride up the elevator and the playful artwork fades into a very Manhattan palette of grays and blacks. Japanese panels and doors line one side of the 292 guest rooms, each of which has kingsize beds, cushioned headboards and wall-to-wall windows that open the room up to the city. The signature restaurant, The Vine, serves farm-to-table American fare (eggplant caponata crostini, Yellowtail crudo, wood oven roasted chicken etc.) in its pretty indoor-outdoor dining room. The 1,000-square-foot fitness center is open round the clock and outdoor group fitness classes are available occasionally. There's also a full spa offering massages, facials and even jet-lag recovery. This being a Kimpton hotel, kids and pets are welcomed with personalized gifts and amenities.
In the Area
While the hotel's immediate vicinity isn't the prettiest, you're a short walk from all the restaurants, galleries and nightlife in Chelsea and the lights of the theater district Times Square. For a dose of retail therapy, take your plastic downtown to Meatpacking and hit Diane von Furstenberg’s flagship and such designer stores as Yigal Azrouel, Carlos Miele and Alexander McQueen. If you’d prefer more culinary indulgences, head to Chelsea Market and gather picnic essentials among the cheesemongers, lobster purveyors, bakers and gelato makers before checking out the sunset views of the Hudson from your perch above the city on the High Line, a park built on elevated railway lines.
