Originally opened in 1929 as the Governor Clinton Hotel, the Stewart Hotel combines historic New York architecture with contemporary style. Designed by Rottet Studio, the grand two-story lobby pairs the building’s original coffered ceilings and carved bronze elevators with a cylindrical chandelier that mimics the topography of Manhattan’s skyline, and emerald-green velvet lounges that are both seating area and abstract sculpture. Huge graphic floral prints, a nod to the nearby Flower District, create accent walls in the 618 airy white guest rooms, which have pops of coral and chartreuse. The 313 studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and terrace suites, designed by the Rockwell Group and completed in March 2012, are ideal for longer stays and for families, thanks to spacious layouts (up to 950 square feet) and kitchens with convection ovens, stovetops and mini-fridges. Located right off the main entrance, the Niles NYC restaurant dishes up classic American fare in a bustling dining room. Burn off your meal at the 24-hour fitness center, which offers treadmills, ellipticals, free weights and a guest laundry, or break a sweat with the free FitKit, which includes a yoga mat and workout DVDs.
In the Area
Catch a Knicks game or a concert at Madison Square Garden, directly across the street. For a break of greenery in the concrete jungle, walk the Flower District on 28th Street, or stroll along the High Line, a historic railroad that has been turned into an elevated public park on the West Side. Fashionistas will swoon over the Museum at FIT, which houses a collection of 50,000 garments from the 18th century to the present. Spend an afternoon browsing the art galleries in Chelsea, particularly Pace, Gladstone and Tanya Bonakdar.
How to Get There
I've been to New York many times and stayed in many different hotels but the Stewart Hotel is by far the very best. The staff were unbelievable.we were upgraded on arrival without even asking to a magnificent room with plenty of room for 4 people which included 2 bathrooms a sitting room and a wrap around balcony with amazing views. Thank you so much to all staff of the Stewart Hotel. We will definitely be back.
Stayed at the Stewart for a couple of evenings, and it was a great experience. We flew in on a red eye, and due to our inexperience of NYC and lack of sleep struggled to get to the hotel.
But once we arrived, the lovely Jenny got us an early check in, and had us upstairs and getting a quick power nap in we were experiencing NYC
Thanks Jenny and the Stewart!
Location is everything! So convenient to subway and many other attractions. We arrived early morning expecting to have to store luggage until check-in but Jenny got us a room right away. We were so grateful to be able to change clothes and then hit the town!
