Location

Hell's Kitchen has few hotels but plenty of inexpensive ethnic restaurants at which to dine. Lincoln Center and Times Square are a short cab ride away. 

Bedrooms

The hotel’s modern 222 rooms have high ceilings, oversized columns, oversized artwork, modern desks, stone baths and marble vanities replete with L'Occitane products. King rooms are the smallest category and are smaller than other hotels in the area (they're about 250 square feet). Higher room categories are more spacious and have deep-soaking tubs, living areas and terraces. The Heaven Over Hell’s Kitchen Suite has a dining room and sitting area as well as a private rooftop terrace and Jacuzzi. The Kitchen Suite is great for families as it allows them to dine in and enjoy the views.

Public areas

The lobby is truly chic, with glass, stone and leather all working in harmony. It makes for an elegant atmosphere. 

Eating and drinking

The soon-to-be-opened Dining Room will seat 80 people and feature seasonal and locally-sourced dishes with a Mediterranean feel. The Lobby Bar is next to the restaurant and features what the hotel calls "dens," which are private spaces at which to have a relaxing drink. The rooftop restaurant and lounge offers amazing views of the Hudson River. Guests can enjoy light fare as well as a choice of top-shelf liquor, plus the hosted "wine hour" between 5 pm and 6 pm daily.

Leisure facilities

The Ink Spa has three treatment rooms and the fitness center is open 24 hours. An outdoor pool on the rooftop is open during the warmer months.

Service

Families and people traveling with pets are handled with special care. 

Who stays there

Families, pet lovers and single females. 

Price advice

A standard room doesn't offer as much for the price as a suite. Opt for the latter as you will get more value for your money.
