Exposed concrete and raw leather nod to the warehouses that used to populate the area, while chrome fixtures, glossy walnut paneling, and blue and white furnishings give the hotel a yacht-like feel. The common spaces are also tempered by green touches; vertical gardens adorn the back walls of the lobby and restaurant. Artwork includes detail photographs of New York bridges and mirrored murals on each floor. Upstairs, 122 guest rooms tend toward the nautical, with lacquered wooden headboards, Midcentury Modern furnishings, and clean white linens with navy trim. Well-stocked minibars include full-size bottles of Hudson Bourbon or Don Julio and ample snacks (there’s also room service from the ground-floor restaurant). Il Principe, the Hugo’s 80-seat Northern Italian restaurant, serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a wood- and marble-surfaced space; grab a seat on the front patio when the weather is nice. The two-story rooftop bar, open year-round, has retractable windows offering panoramic views of the skyline to the east and the Hudson River to the west.
In the Area
Tucked between Tribeca, Soho and the West Village, Hudson Square is just a few blocks from some of the city’s best shopping, drinking and dining options. Head east for prime shopping: Mercer Street is home to boutique favorites Cutler and Gross, A.P.C., and Rag & Bone, while Broadway has big names such as Bloomingdale’s, Top Shop and Uniqlo. Catch an intimate dinner away from the crowds at Little Prince — sit at the candlelit bar and order the French onion soup burger. Just a few blocks away, on Spring, the nearly 200-year-old Ear Inn is the city’s oldest working bar, serving reasonably priced wines and draft beers (as well as chicken pot pie) alongside live jazz on Sunday, Monday and Wednesday evenings. Get your dessert fix at Jacques Torres, New York’s Willy Wonka–esque chocolatier.
How to Get There
My friends and I came for a few days, and I must say Josh was great help, the rooftop was really cool, And the breakfast really hit the spot. I’ll deffinetely be returning for my next trip back to the city!
I had a quick business trip to NYC for one day. I decided to stay this time as the Hugo Hotel. Great property with nice rooms, a very relaxing restaurant for breakfast. It is also close to a lot of other great shops and restaurants in Soho. Very friendly staff - especially Sam at the door. He made it a memorable visit for myself and colleagues. Very helpful!
This boutique hotel was about 4 years old and boutique it was. Small rooms and pricey... if it weren't for a great staff, this stay would have not been as enjoyable. I was here for my daughters 21st birthday, all the way from Edinburgh and we enjoyed his impeccable enclosed rooftop bar (great view). We were able to have free drinks courtesy of the front desk agent Pinki which was fab because drinks were pricey also, go figure. Other than the hotel itself the location was perfect. We were not too far from much at all. Downtown New York got it going on!
Hugo Hotel was centrally located, very clean, and just amazing! The door men are wonderful and allow you to explore NYC in the best way! Its not a "chain hotel" and you can feel it! Every member on the staff was eager to assist!
We found the stay at Hotel Hugo to be great. Rooms were well kept and were reflective of advertisement. Beds were comfortable. Everything worked well and enjoyed the morning breakfast. Although it was cold outside, the room was very comfortable and staff made the stay even better, especially bellman Ismael Lugo, exceptionally friendly and helpful. Good location..... We walked everywhere and easy subway access.
