Expert review of 6 Columbus - A Thompson Hotel

A sophisticated boutique hotel in an unbeatable central location.

When this property opened a few years ago, by the same owners as 60 Thompson, it brought some downtown cool close to Central Park. It isn't achingly hip like its neighbor the Hudson but it feels more chic than some of the stuffy big hotels nearby. 

Location: 

An incredible address close to Central Park, the Time Warner complex (with its restaurants, shops and Whole Food megaplex), Lincoln Center, Fifth Avenue and most of the major subway lines.  

Bedrooms: 

Small but comfy rooms come with great beds and 60's retro decor in blue and brown tones. I like the Guy Bourdin artwork plus modern amenities like the flatscreen TVs and iPod docking stations. But business travelers will bemoan the "mood lighting" which is not ideal when you need to read and work on your computer. The blue tiled bathrooms with Kiehl's products feel fresh but beware the thin walls if you have a noisy neighbor.

Public areas: 

Small dimly lit lobby is serviceable but not really where guests tend to hang out. 

Eating and drinking: 

The hotel's restaurant is an outpost of Blue Ribbon Sushi, one of my favorite restaurants in the city. Even though I don't find it as intimate as the one downtown, and the food isn't quite as stellar, it's still an excellent Japanese restaurant for this part of town. A much anticipated rooftop bar is supposed to open soon. 

Service: 

The amazing staff are a real draw. They are helpful, professional and charming.
