Art Deco icon newly renovated for modern business travelers just steps from Penn Station
When this Art Deco icon opened in 1929, it was the city’s largest hotel. The Brooklyn Dodgers, Spencer Tracy, and Joan Crawford danced in the ballrooms to Benny Goodman, and everyone from Nikola Tesla to Muhammad Ali bedded down in the guest rooms. Now the hotel has been renovated, and it offers simple, fresh digs for a new generation of travelers. The two-story marble lobby features a gilded ceiling and high-back chairs in ruby-red, charcoal and sapphire next to coffee tables stacked with books and a glass case filled with hotel keepsakes. Upstairs, rooms have textured wallpaper, royal blue armchairs, and slate-gray tufted headboards above Simmons mattresses dressed in crisp white linens. The subway tile bathrooms, although a bit small, have shower/tub combos, comfy robes, and True Blue Spa toiletries. Fuel up in the morning with breakfast at the Tick Tock diner, located just off the lobby, before heading out for a day of exploring New York City. There’s also Trattoria Bianca, which is open for lunch and dinner and serves dishes such as Chianti-braised short ribs and seafood fritto misto. Those looking to keep up their workout regimen can head to the 24-hour fitness center.
In the Area
The Wyndham New Yorker’s prime Midtown location puts some of the city’s most iconic sights right at your fingertips. Start the day off by flexing that plastic at Macy’s flagship store on Herald Square, and then head to the top of the Empire State Building for jaw-on-the-floor views. You’re also not far from other renowned attractions including Grand Central Terminal, Bryant Park and the New York Public Library. Cap off the night by snagging tickets to a New York Knicks game or a concert at Madison Square Garden, or head uptown to see a Broadway show. For an expense account meal, indulge in single malts and steaks at Keen’s, a New York institution since 1885. Or make like a local and grill your own meat at Madangsui, in nearby Koreatown, followed by karaoke in your own private room at Gagopa.
