A promising new arrival in the East Village.

This much anticipated glass and steel tower finally opened last year giving guests a whole new view of the city. Stylish, but not precious, it makes a good base for travelers looking to be close to New York University, Union Square, the Village and Soho, plus it's an easy ride uptown by subway.

Location

The East Village hasn't had a real hotel option until now and I like the fact that the location gives one a fresh take on the city. The neighborhood is becoming increasingly well known for restaurants and funky bars, plus new museums like the New Museum on the Bowery.

Bedrooms

Rooms are small but the lack of size is mostly made up by the spectacular view and amazingly comfy beds (they are hard to get out of they are so luxurious). The furnishings are practical but not flashy in a palate of taupe and grey, but I love touches like the mini bar with jewelry and make-up on offer as well as the usual snack suspects. Bathrooms include toiletries from Red Flower, one of my favorite brands. As in most tower hotels, ask for a room higher up for the best view and go for a larger room category as space in a standard is just too cramped.

Public areas

The main lobby area feels a bit corporate to me and, for the most part, not a lot of guests hang out there, but the library with the fireplace is more appealing. 

Eating and drinking

The staff are generally nice and helpful but room service can be slow, especially on the weekends.

Who stays there

Travelers who are more interested in discovering downtown than the typical tourist sites. Europeans in town to shop.
