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.

A new brand destroys a great hotel-would not recommend!

The only thing you have going for your property is price and location, the quality of the property is beyond awful and very much below the previous owners standards. The furniture, walls, tubs, shower curtains have not been replaced or repaired and have marks everywhere. We had a suite and the living room literally had zero light(no lamps, light fixtures, etc). We asked management to bring up a light and they proceeded to set up a table and a tiny reading lamp to remedy the problem-ridiculous. To top it off the day we checked out the elevators were not working and many guests including ourselves were forced to take the stairs with our luggage to exit your building.

Very disappointing. Triumph of form over function. Rooms are very small and the hotel itself has seen better days and is obviously riding on it being continued to be seen and promoted as fashionably trendy. Those days have passed I'm afraid and there is a sense of faded grandeur about the place. No facilities in the room I was in - don't know if that is different if you go for a large more expensive room. Might have been helpful if they left the breakfast room open with the tea and coffee making facilities available but no. And I had a run in when i asked if two of my friends (who were staying at the hotel) could get tea or coffee and was told they would have to pay for breakfast! The best thing about it was its location and the comfortable bed..

Creapy place

Horror movie place:
- broken curtains
- no space to Wall
- no towels at arrival
- dirty room with dirty mirror and mold on the walls
- dirty moquet
- slowest lifts ever
- no lights.

Best thing: check out.
