A chic boutique property with the Empire State Building right across Fifth Avenue.
With a front door that opens directly onto Fifth Avenue, this sweet little hotel sits across the street from the Empire State Building. The lobby (connected to a Starbucks) is about the size of an elevator, but the friendly staff and the chic room that awaits you quickly diminishes any claustrophobia that might creep up. Clean, cozy rooms include complimentary Wi-Fi and other tech extras, including iPod docks and LCD TVs. The marble-lined bathrooms have spa bath products and comfy bathrobes. For a true New York experience, ask for a room with a view of the Empire State Building.
