Critic Reviews



There’s no attitude in the lobby, which is just off newly cool Madison Square Park in the 1909 Metropolitan Life 'Clocktower' building. The crowd and décor are sleek and sophisticated, but new arrivals are made to feel like they belong.



The sensuality isn’t overt—no red walls or lamps here, in fact the room décor is strictly neutrals (lots of light oak in the rooms). But then you look up at the 14-foot ceiling with their ocean-like waves, down at the bed with its faux fur throw, and out the windows at the spectacular views (this is one of the tallest hotels in the city) and it’s clear that this is a place for adult romance.
