OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Located at 29th Street and Broadway in a vibrant yet less-than-luxurious area in the centre of Manhattan, shops, restaurants, and subway lines are nearby. Yet although it's close to a lot, it's away from the top tourist areas and therefore is quieter and feels more like genuine New York. Get a great rustic pizza at Marta, and for more upmarket Italian food try La Pecora Blanca.

By plane: flights to New York take 6 hours 50 mins from London and Edinburgh, and 7 hours 10 mins from Manchester. The hotel is a one-hour taxi ride from JFK airport. Public parking nearby. Book flights to New York.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

This hotel, a building dating from 1904, has a striking design, with much use of black, grey, charcoal and white. The lobby has a high ceiling and thick columns, groups of chairs and big brown leather sofas and black chairs, mosaic flooring and a long black marble table, often used as a workspace. The facilities attract locals, so it can be a good venue for meeting some interesting NYC citizens.

THE FACILITIES

This isn't the kind of hotel packed with facilities like spas and pools but makes up for this with its very original character. As well as the different bar types and restaurants, there's a small gallery space, hairdressers and a shop. There's a fitness centre with basic equipment in the basement, and a large lobby, which usually has a few people working from their laptops during the day, and which takes on a bit of a nightclub vibe when there's a DJ night.

BED AND BATH

Guest accommodation varies a lot in size and style, from small rooms with bunk beds to large suites. Larger rooms may have a seating area - a retro leather sofa - and all show contemporary artworks. Bathrooms tend to be small, and usually just have a shower. But all look cool, and clearly a lot of thought has been put into the interior design.

Room types: Bunk Bed, Single, Double, Small, Medium Queen, Medium King, Large, Double, Loft Suite

Key amenities: ensuite bathroom, Pearl+ soap, Rudy's Hair and Body Products, free Wi-Fi

FOOD AND DRINK

The restaurant, The Breslin, has quite a focus on meat, but pescatarians and vegetarians also get a look in, and there's a good spread for breakfast. There's also an oyster and seafood bar in the building, the retro-themed John Dory, as well as a popular sandwich bar, No. 7 Sub, and a just as popular coffee bar, the Stumptown. If that wasn't enough, there's also a characterful Lobby Bar in the big black main space of the hotel.

Lobby Bar: breakfast and all-day dining. Open 7.30-11.30am and 2-10pm. Mains from $15.

Stumptown: coffee, breakfast, lunch. Open Mon-Fri 7am-3pm, Sat & Sun 8am-4pm.
