Archer Hotel Review: With a noteworthy house art collection and souvenir pieces by local artisans available for purchase, you might at first glance mistake the Archer Hotel for a modern gallery or museum. The stylishly composed 22-story structure feels right at home in New York’s trendy Garment District thanks to its stunning brick, glass and steel façade. Inside, designer Glen Coben has dressed the 180 guest accommodations with distinctive, well-chosen details like airy floor-to-ceiling windows, five-star bedding, custom drapery, 42-inch LED high-def televisions, Nespresso coffee makers and subway-tiled bathrooms that showcase walk-in showers and Malin+Goetz bath products. Concierge and nightly turndown services keep the sense of luxury going; guests also have access to free Wi-Fi, state-of-the-art fitness and business centers (both open 24/7) and dry-cleaning/laundry service among other amenities. To fuel up for midtown Manhattan adventures, chef David Burke's fabrick serves up sophisticated small plates, entrées, snacks and desserts. Bugatti Bar in the hotel lobby makes a perfect perch for a cocktail or light bite.
