In the heart of the meatpacking district close to the 'hood's main clubs, restaurants and across the street from the city's new Highline Park. There is also good shopping, like a flagship Apple store and a huge Scoop outpost.
Rooms are fine but not spectacular; done in neutral shades with bright accents. This was the neighborhood's first design hotel and it's showing its age a bit. But a renovation is in the works.
All the public areas feel a bit like a club and downstairs at night there is always a parade of people going to the nightlife area. If you want to see and be seen this is the right spot, but I think it feels a bit too much unless you are under the age of 30.
Eating and drinking
Have a drink at the rooftop bar for epic views of the city. The restaurant is okay but I prefer spots like Spice Market, Pastis and Standard Grill - they are just across the street.
I love the rooftop pool that's open all year round. It's heated, there's piped-in music underwater, and now, thankfully, it's reserved for hotel guests only. I also love the Exhale Spa (don't miss the Core Fusion classes) and the complimentary WiFi.
As can be expected at a one-stop party nexus, the staff can seem a bit fatigued at all the crowd control. Nonetheless most of them do try to fulfill guest requests.
