A touch of class and ultraclean rooms near lively Broadway.
The Premier Hotel in midtown Manhattan proves that the Millennium Hotel group is pro. The Singapore-based company opened The Premier as an alternative to its neighboring Millennium Broadway, a darker, busier space. The light and quiet Premier has only seven rooms per floor and a dedicated round-the-clock staff. The private Premier Lounge is a small but lovely spot to enjoy complimentary continental breakfast and a nightly reception. Bathrooms have separate soaking tubs and shower stalls made of Portuguese limestone. Restaurant Charlotte offers new American cuisine with special children's, vegetarian, genetic mutation-free and nut-free menus. For the allergy-sensitive, "Pure" rooms are available. These are specially treated to remove most allergens, including dust. Surfaces are sanitized, pillows and mattresses are encased and the air is hyper-purified --- not such a bad idea in Midtown.
