The Mercer Hotel Review

: Housed in a splendid Romanesque Revival building, this hotel has the kind of minimalist interior that causes the non-hip to wonder if the place is still under construction. Never mind. The hotel has been a celebrity favorite since opening its doors, competing with the Soho and Tribeca Grands to draw in a fashionable, Hollywood-esque clientele, along with their paparazzi. There are only 75 rooms, some with fireplaces. The most desirable overlook the courtyard. Natural fibers, warm woods and, in many, leather banquettes set the tone. The look is pristine and modern, but this place is certainly not minimal when it comes to amenities. You’ll find three dual-line phones plus HDTV and other typical upscale conveniences. Bath fans and their companions will enjoy the extra-large marble tubs sized to fit at least two people. Guests can relax --- or pose --- in the library, the lobby that doubles as a lounge, the bar or the highly rated below-ground restaurant, Mercer Kitchen, a Jean-Georges Vongerichten eatery presided over by chef Chris Beischer. For those who wish to enjoy this award winning chef's ouevre in the comfort of their room, the hotel offers room service from the restaurant. Rates include complimentary Wi-Fi and access to 24 Hour Fitness.
