Private terraces and a clubby atmosphere are highlights at this urban retreat.
This hotel offers the chance to hide away from Midtown's madness without running too far from the action. It's a peaceful respite right in the thick of office buildings aplenty and just a short walk from Rockefeller Center and other tourist hot spots. Accommodations include standard guest rooms, studios and multi-room suites for up to six. Top floor rooms come with city views, and many have private terraces. The hotel offers its own brand of bed with triple-sheeted down comforters and several pillow options.
Contemporary style incorporates curated art, including a blown-glass mobile and sculptures. All rooms include access to The Club Room, with complimentary Wi-Fi, a fireplace and weekly wine receptions. Continental-style breakfast is a bargain with all sorts of goodies, the highlight being New York-style bagels and smoked salmon. Business amenities include Wi-Fi, secretarial services and meeting areas. The hotel is surprisingly kid-friendly, and it also lends guests "Experience Kits" with extras like yoga mats, DVDs and iPods loaded with walking tours and workout playlists.
