Overview

Complimentary bike rentals available
Small rooms

This trendy hotel enjoys a central location that guests love, merely two blocks west of Union Square. This property certainly has the "wow" factor: The Clift's decor is best described as a mish-mash of styles, with vastly differing furnishings and artwork contrasting so heavily that it works. But guests have mixed feelings  like any work of art, you either love it or you hate it. Some travelers describe the Clift as tasteful and hip, while others feel that it's too swanky for its own good and that the high room rates are a direct result. The guest rooms are much more demure, dressed in purple and cream hues and outfitted with, flat-screen TVs, honor bars and Bose sound systems. (The hotel also provides in-room spa treatments and 24-hour room service.) Should guests prefer to embrace the hotel's sense of style, consider doing so with a drink in hand at the Redwood Room.

READ MORE 

Known for its Redwood Room bar, the Clift's hip scene is typical of the Morgans Hotel Group, which bought the historic hotel from Four Seasons and reopened it in 2001 after a makeover by Philippe Starck and Ian Schrager (the latter of Studio 54 fame). The lobby and the small but comfortable rooms are short on amenities but high on scene and style.

A mix of hipsters, music-industry types and celebrities flock to the moody, dramatically illuminated lobby, dominated by a gigantic Napoleonic chair that could accommodate Shaquille O'Neal, with room to spare.
