Overview

Style steal near Central Park with buzzy bars and sleek Philippe Starck interiors

The Lowdown

A fortress of unabashed but accessibly priced glam, Hudson New York caters to travelers who care as much about the scene as the sleep when it comes to hotels. From the moment you enter, signs of Philippe Starck’s vision are everywhere. Two sleek escalators transport patrons into a dramatic greenhouse that doubles as the hotel lobby. All 878 guest rooms were spruced up in 2012 following a year-long revamp and are now lighter and brighter than before. The Makore wood walls and exotic African flooring remain but illuminated mirrors, funky x-ray bedside lamps and brand-new stainless steel furniture have lifted the look. But the rooms are not the draw here: The always-happening common areas are the hotel’s main focus. Your hotel key card grants you VIP access to some of New York’s hottest party scenes, including the beer hall and burger joint, Hudson Common and brand new arcade and dance hall, Half & Half. The Library pays homage to Hudson New York’s sister properties in London, offering a quieter vibe with a fireplace and wing chair.

In the Area

Just two blocks away is the entrance to the 843 acres of Central Park, with its grassy knolls, picturesque bridges and gurgling fountains. Or head south and you’ll find more than 150,000 photographs, sculptures, drawings and prints at the Museum of Modern Art, not to mention its stellar French-American restaurant, the Modern. The upscale gastronomical opportunities in this area are outstanding: Per Se, Jean-Georges and Marea are all within a couple of blocks. Afterwards, take in a show at Jazz at Lincoln Center, which is located in the Time Warner Center on Columbus Circle and is home to a 15-piece big band led by Wynton Marsalis. No stay in Midtown is complete without a shopping spree along Fifth and Madison avenues — go for retail therapy at Bergdorf Goodman, Saks and Fendi, to name a few.

Dont Book to go Here

This hotel has many issues which have been covered in great detail in other reviews these include:

Only one of the two front doors work and these are one person size so health and safety concerns if there was a fire.
Some lifts broken and not working.
Some public areas closed off, no food being served.
Very tired decoration.
Toilet tiny and shower room weird.
Dark throughout hotel.
Aircon noisy even if turned off in the room.
Staff battered and bruised from receiving complaints.

It is disgusting that on arrival you have to pay a facility fee of circa $30 per day - this supposedly to cover use of facilities eg WiFi and gym. But surely these should be standard or advised at the time of booking. They do give you $10 credit per day to use in the bar but surely it’s up to us where we choose to spend our hard earned cash and I wouldn’t choose to use the bar in this hotel given the other issues highlighted. Owners should be ashamed of this they should be handing out credits for their poor maintenance of the hotel not ripping customers off.

Great location and our room was clean - although very small.

Please go elsewhere the owners of this hotel don’t deserve you.

Management please do not respond with some positive spin , please refund your facility fees which you are stealing off guests on arrival.

DARK,DARK,DARK!

When entering this hotel you're confronted with an escalator to take you to reception. Some brave souls were attempting this escalator ride with loads of luggage, but would strongly suggest you go left to find a bank of elevators to get you to reception. Some will work.
This is where review title comes in.
From then on the hotel becomes the darkest hotel we've ever been in. That includes the hallways and rooms, and also the bar.
The room features a very small bathroom with paper cups instead of glasses. The room itself is small with an ok bed (just), and a darkwood slat blind which is immovable. Behind that is a roller blind which is broken, and after speaking with other guests in our group appears to be the same in most rooms. With the darkwood walls it all makes the room so dark even with the poor lighting on.
On top of all that the restaurant was closed!
There are other places to eat close by, so don't be too depressed!
The only recommendation I could make about this hotel was the position as it's almost next to Central Park.
It's the only reason for the 3* rating
