Our favourite rooms
The City Queen-Terrace rooms have a few extra square feet of space inside (bumping them up to 160sq ft), but the main draw is the generous patio with two sunloungers, an outdoor shower and views of downtown Manhattan. The standard City and Courtyard Queens and Kings are the same size, so take your pick depending on if you value floor-space or rollover-space.
Follow the Arlo philosophy: everything you need, no excess. Alright, fine, bring the selfie stick.
All the common areas are wheelchair-accessible, and there are rooms in all categories designed for guests with mobility issues. All guest rooms, as is typical for New York, average at a petite but perfectly formed 150sq ft.
All ages welcome. Twin bunk rooms can be connected to a King room on request. Highchairs are available in Harold's Meat + Three restaurant.
