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
The hotel location is great! Lots of nice restaurants close by. The hotel itself is not welcoming. The staff is unfriendly and don’t know how to communicate with guests. Next time I will definitely book another hotel.
I was expecting a nicer experience.
Very long checkin, with only one person at the desk who also had to pick the phone...
Rooms need at least a brush up, with too many signs of tear and wear.
Rooftop ok, but not as good as others.
We knew what to expect when we booked here. We were not put off by the construction work around the hotel because the reason we chose it was due to the location and our familiarity of the local area.
Enjoyed the stay again.
Poor information about that the outside rooftop bar was closed and the inside was booked for privet events - a lot of noise the hole night because og trucks from UPS.
We loved the part of the city, and the sights.
Roof bar m, the main attraction of the bar, was closed two nights in a row. Check before arriving that it is open as otherwise you could really be missing out. Overall seems like a good hotel but this was disappointing
