- Style Mad Men modern
- Setting Tailored triangle below Canal
Inspired by a Madison Avenue ad man's boutique bachelor pad, Smyth Tribeca hotel in New York delivers Sixties style in a sophisticated, sexy way. Leather-lined walls, mid-century modern furnishings and understated, masculine rooms make this the ultimate city slicker. Lucky for you, the key has been left under the flowerpot.

- Our favourite rooms We love the airy corner rooms such as 410 and 411, they share a corridor, ideal if you need to stretch out. Both have ample space, modern, polished chrome lighting fixtures, comfy couches and stunning views of the cityscape. You can get this combo on a few different floors, the higher you go the better the view.
- Packing tips Bring your Lomo camera, or download the app so you can take faux-vintage snapshots in the lobby.
