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.

Lack of customer service
Navigate82884

A recent 5-day stay; a Hudson website booking with breakfast included and paid for, which was not available because there is no food service. Housekeeping consistently left only one clean towel after removing the used towels. Reception desk staff were abrupt; not offering any information about the facility at check-in. The location is great, but the obvious inattention to creating a good guest experience downgrades the accommodation.

Good location basic room.

I was getting worried about staying here after reading some of the reviews. Was my 1st time in New York. The room was very small and dark (not enough room to swing a cat) as us brits say, but the bed was comfy and the hotel was in quite a good location next to Central Park prob 15 mins if that away from Times Square. The aircon was quite noisy but didn’t feel that hot in the room to have it on constant or at night though, yes had the dreaded window bathroom room don’t think you could really see anything when both bathroom curtains were closed, stayed in a lot nicer but not the worst, was the resort fees that was a nasty surprise at the end of the stay but think this is the same for all New York hotels.

Very noisy

The location is great, near central park and subway station, the lobby is very nice, but the rooms are very noisy.
The windows are old and it feels like we are sleeping in an airplane, there is always noise.
I asked to switch rooms but I was told that if I will turn on the air conditioning I will not hear the noise from the street because it's more loud and that all of the rooms are noisy.
Beside that the room is very basic.
