Critic Reviews

National Geographic


In a city known for its foodies, the hotel's Print Restaurant not only holds its own, but trumps much of the midtown culinary competition.



Set in a former printing house, the hotel is close to everything without being too close.



The design feels contemporary-corporate, with a dash of glamor from the rooftop bar and Zagat rated restaurant. However, it's the dramatic views--both from the bar and the rooms themselves--that really sell this hotel.


The 222 rooms were renovated in 2016 and are bright and sleek, with Mid-Century Modern-inspired decor and lots of colorful accents. Many have views out over the Hudson River.

Guest Rooms

The hotel's former life as a printing house keeps rooms from being too similar in terms of shape and layout. All rooms have high ceilings and feature in-room yoga mats, bright blue and navy accents and flat-screen TVs (with yoga DVDs for putting the mat to use). Eco-friendly bath products are available in each room. West-facing rooms have floor-to-ceiling views of the Hudson, while east-facing rooms have views of the cityscape.
