Tranquility awaits at this om away from home.
Starwood's midtown Element hotel provides the kind of peaceful retreat people try to create in their own homes. But this property sits smack in the middle of Midtown --- not always the easiest place to get away from it all. The hotel serves up understated design that will feel pleasantly familiar to anybody who has spent time in a truly relaxing spa waiting room. Lines are clean, colors tend toward a natural palette and --- really! --- Midtown feels a million miles away. Business guests in need of a place to hang their hats (and set down their laptops) for an extended stay should consider Element. There's even a laundry room for DIY-on-the-road types. All rooms feature signature Heavenly Beds, 32-inch LCD TVs, rainforest showers and complimentary Wi-Fi. Guests also get breakfast on the house every morning. The lobby functions more like a huge living room, and you may find yourself hanging out there doing work or just people-watching. Pooped and not up for going out in the streets to buy some chow? The 24-hour grab-and-go pantry is stocked with tasty basics.
