Overview

Artsy boutique sleep with contemporary style, top notch service and a prime Midtown perch

The Look

Quirky ultramodern digs inspired by 1950s art and design. The lobby has a clubby throwback feel with leather armchairs and polished wood walls topped with a wink thanks to electric yellow ceilings and a graphic print border. Zebra carpets and primary colored wallpaper printed with floor-to-ceiling picture frames set a whimsical tone in the hallways.

Bed and Bath

The 37 guestrooms are less eccentric, styled in toned down charcoal and grey hues with pops of color (thanks to mod red chairs) and pattern (the dotted carpets reference modernist icons Charles and Ray Eames). Tufted white leather headboards hover above pillowy beds dressed in Belgian linens and houndstooth throws. Sleek slate bathrooms come equipped with rainfall showers, stainless steel appliances and C.O. Bigelow products.

Beyond

Curl up on a funky zebra-print chair or chrome-colored sofa with a cup of java, some fresh fruit and coffee cake served daily at the second-floor lounge. After the morning pick-me-up, work on that fitness routine at the free gym a block away in sister hotel, Ameritania. The supreme staff has service down to an art and can give you the insider scoop on the best eats and must-sees.

In the Area

Pay tribute to the hotel’s design theme by checking out the galleries at the Museum of Modern Art. Next, wander through the exhibits at the Museum of Arts and Design, then stroll across the street to Columbus Circle and Central Park for a breath of fresh air. Those more musically inclined should catch a show at Carnegie Hall, a few short blocks from the hotel. Wrap up by tasting your way through the wealth of foodie favorites in the neighborhood, including the swoon-worthy swine at BarBacon gastropub, Brasserie Cognac’s classic French fare, McGee’s Irish bar (the model for How I Met Your Mother), and Frank Sinatra’s signature spot, Patsy’s Italian Restaurant.

This hotel can be rated a bit under excellent Our room was a bit small and very warm when we checked in. However, staff worked hard to remedy the problem. Thank you to Alexis who stayed constant to fixing the issue. A very warm, friendly and concerned staff made our 2 night stay terrific
