Expert review of The Bryant Park Hotel
This imposing hotel, housed in the former American Radiator building, is one of the city’s best properties, particularly now that it has worked out some early days' kinks. I particularly like its proximity to Bryant Park, which makes it feel much more peaceful than most hotels close to Times Square.
Right next to Bryant Park, one of the city’s most pleasant green spaces, it’s the perfect spot for a lunchtime picnic and there is a great free movie series in the park come summer. It’s also right by the Fashion Week tents, which explains the particular buzz the hotel has during the shows.
Large, comfortable, mostly white rooms come with hardwood floors and lots of light. Some of the best units include a terrace and many come with lovely views of the park.
The lobby is a visual standout with its red leather accents and high ceilings - it’s also a good spot for a business meeting.
The hotel got a new stamp of approval when it opened an outpost of LA hotspot Koi recently. The Cellar Bar is also a good choice for a pre-dinner cocktail or nightcap.
I love the private screening room.
Cheerful, helpful and kind staff are a stand-out.
