The hotel is surrounded by some cool museums, such as The Tenement and The New Museum and is only a short walk from Eric’s favorite area: East Village. Head to St. Marks Place for alternative shops and a lively music scene.

Whilst not the best-looking building from the outside (the sixties have a lot to answer for when it comes to architecture) don’t judge a book by its cover. On the inside, the hotel does not fail to impress, with just the right combination of luxury and cool to suit the grit and modernity of the area.
