OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Located in bustling, trendy NoMad (or Madison Square North), this used to be the Garment District and there are loads of shops, restaurants and bars nearby and a good choice of subway lines to choose from. A fantastic, good-value Korean restaurant, Her Name is Han, and an inexpensive café/deli, Bread and Butter, with loads of choice, are almost next door.

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 35-minute taxi ride from JFK airport. Parking on-site costs $81 per day. Book flights to New York.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The hotel's design is pretty minimalist and the set-up of public spaces encourages interaction. The youthful clientele ensures a buzzing atmosphere much of the time. Some modern, colourful artwork brightens up the place.

THE FACILITIES

Facilities are quite minimalist here, for example, a small store in the lobby with snacks replaces room service. Instead of a gym, on-site guests get complimentary passes to a sports club a few blocks away. A laundry service is offered. Service is good and friendly on the whole.

The white walls are broken up with dark wood panelling and there's a small desk area, storage under the bed for luggage and a small bit of hanging/storage space.

There's a chilled bar around the cosy lounge areas on the second floor and another bar on the rooftop.
