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 Wife and I Stayed here for a weekend getaway in the city. We live in Long island but decided to stay here for a few events we had planned for the weekend. My wife suggested we take the Rail Road in but im a loser and decided I wanted to drive into the city for my own comfort lol. Luckily the hotel had Valet Parking for us. Our room was amazing. I love the slick design of the entire hotel overall. If you’re like us and looking for a couple extra curricular activities after you’re done with your normal activities ask for Josh. He pointed us in the direction of some really nice spots around the area. Overall had an amazing time at this hotel. I dont normally leave a reviews but my experience here gave me no choice. 5 stars for sure.
Overall, just okay. The vibe is trendy & hip, but the service is below average. Price was high for what you get. The beds are not great, room service lacking. Lots of room for improvement, especially with room service.
Really nice clean hotel, really awesome rooftop bar/area, would definitely go back. Easy check in, walking distance to a lot of great restaurants/bars/venues. Made our one day vacation a great one, thanks again!
very convenient to our wedding venue, high quality of decors, good food at restaurant, great location to many high-lighted spots, you can plan a vacation by staying at this hotel, you won't be bored at all.
It is a good spot for the price and the place looks really cute but I had some issues. One more the water wasn't working, and one evening the hotel room next to me was smoking and it was pouring into my room (the front desk did take care of it). I wouldn't stay there again because of the issues I had, but it could have been one off incidents.
