Balconies and kitchenettes aren’t elements you’d typically associate with a boutique Manhattan sleep, but a stay at this trendy Murray Hill property guarantees you at least one (and, in some cases, both) of those homey perks. Even the sun-drenched rooms aren’t the classic cramped quarters synonymous with the Big Apple, though the extra square footage comes at a cost: this hotel completely sacrifices a lobby in favor of your roomier chambers. Comic book- and graffiti-inspired paintings by resident artist Chris Georgalas, a Colombian-American creator with roots in nearby Jackson Heights who has been characterized as a modern-day Duchamp, fuel a distinctly urban ambience (originals are available for sale at the front desk). It’s just one of the myriad ways this four-star gem establishes a meaningful connection with its dynamic Midtown surroundings. Be sure to schedule a session with one of the friendly onsite concierges to skip the serpentine lines you might encounter elsewhere for city bus tours, Broadway shows, museum visits, and helicopter rides.
In the Area
Bold-faced landmarks like The Empire State Building, Penn Station, Grand Central Station, and Times Square are practically in your backyard. Lesser-known but worthy attractions near the Flatiron-Murray Hill neighborhood include The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology and its rotating door of international textiles curated by historian Valerie Steele, the decidedly friskier Museum of Sex (guests must be at least 18 years or older to enter), and a cluster of design emporiums such as Marimekko and ABC Carpet & Home. Be sure to reserve one hedonistic evening for nearby Koreatown, an energetic neighborhood lined with barbecue joints, karaoke bars, and round-the-clock spas.
How to Get There
Front desks people greets you with a warmth smile! Evelyn and Johanna are lovely ladies that goes beyond their responsibilities just to make us satisfied. We’ll surely comeback! Great area to stay because it’s near to different tourist spots, specially the Empire State!!
Hotel was very clean and staff was very nice! Location is perfect, with the subway only a half a block away. Felt very lucky as we got an upgrade from a queen room to a king room. Room is nicely appointed, and we had a room with a kitchen...would be great if we were staying for a longer time to be able to have breakfast, wine and cheese, etc...
Me and my family (13 yr old daughter and my wife) stayed here for 2 nights. Our room had 2 nice queen size beds, just as advertised. The room was very clean and very quiet. The rate was also very reasonable. Everything in NYC is just soo expensive, so if you can a good deal on the hotel I'll take it. Also easy to remember where the hotel is located b/c of its name!
