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
This hotel is the prefect stay. Great location and amazing staff. William in particular was a star - he made us feel incredibly welcome and was super helpful with our requests. 5 star hotel through and through!!
Stayed in Stewart Hotel for 14 nights while visiting my son over Mother's Day. When I checked in I was given a smaller room than what I paid for. I reported the mistake to Jenny at the front desk and she made everything right! She immediately took ownership of the mistake and apologized even though she wasn't the person who checked me in. She moved me to a spacious suite and I was very comfortable for the remainder of my stay. Prior to the room change she explained all the details including what time to vacate the current room, where to store my bags, and what time the new room would be available. When I walked through the lobby the next day, she confirmed with me that everything was to my liking. Jenny is a TOP NOTCH professional and I will stay at this hotel again!
Great help from all the staff particularly Jenny and Ryan at the front desk. Room was spacious and clean. The bed was very comfortable. Great location across from Penn station. Highly recommend this hotel.
Just arrived at the Stewart hotel and had an amazing welcome as have been upgraded by William.
Really looking forward to our hotel.
Very beautiful room and a lovely location.
Many thanks to the stewart hotel
We just had arrived from a overnight train ride. So we were exhausted and aware that check-in is not until 4 pm and we arrived at 12 noon. When we approached the front desk we were met by a young man named William. Before we could plead to check in early he had already done it. Also, when we booked the trip they gave us a green size bed, whereas we have always had the king size. Before I could say anything William had already upgraded us.
The room is amazing!! The people are great! We are looking forward to a return visit.
