An imposing structure at the crossroads of Midtown Manhattan.

Enrique Norten of TEN Arquitectos designed the imposing Cassa Hotel and Residences, part of the Desires Hotels group. The narrow steel pillar rises from the ground to tower over many area buildings - it's quite breathtaking. The steel and chrome design theme is echoed in the modern and over-the-top interior. Volcanic walls and abstract impressionist photography meld to create a rich space.

Location

Perfectly positioned at the crossroads of the east and west sides of Midtown. Times Square is two blocks away, as is Grand Central Terminal. 

Bedrooms

The hotel's 166 rooms and suites have a modern feel and run the gamut from studios to junior and executive suites. Cream leather chairs and ottomans are juxtaposed with black leather-studded headboards and printed carpets. the platform beds are extremely comfortable and I loved having extra fluffy pillows. Irene Mamiye photography and Taschen and Rizzoli books line the walls and tables. Limestone baths feature Duravit faucets, rainforest showerheads and amenities by Angelo Caroli. 

Public areas

Stepping into the lobby, you are immediately drawn to the polished, black volcanic walls and the red check-in desk. A glass catwalk runs over the restaurant below the lobby. 

Eating and drinking

Restaurant 1945 focuses on healthy variations of classic American fare. The chic space is divided into three sections: U-bar, Great Hall and Dining Room. The first two are more laid back than the last. The hotel lounge and terrace are year-round retreats for cocktails and socializing.

Leisure facilities

The hotel has a top-notch fitness center with cardio and strength training equipment.
