Our favourite rooms
Each room type is modeled after a Japanese ryokan, with a platform bed and minimalist furniture, but the Studio Suites are the most spacious, with a chair and a soaking tub. Opt for rooms 85 or 95 to catch the most sweeping skyline views. Upper-level Uptown Queen rooms have bird’s-eye views of the High Line, and Downtown Kings – overlooking the courtyard – get the most sunshine.
The rooftop plunge pool (open in summer months) is surrounded by squishy day-beds for people watching, sun soaking and skyline gazing.
There's no spa on-site, but the in-room massages– with organic products from The Ritualist – are a delight.
Hipster glasses to help fit in with the gallery-hopping art crowd; botany books for identifying native plants along the High Line.
Dogs are welcome; a $50 non-refundable deposit is required for Spot to stay in your room.
All ages are welcome, though the hotel does not provide rollaway beds, baby cots or a children’s menu, so accommodations are best suited to independent teenagers who can occupy their own room.
