Sohotel New York City

First known as The Westchester, The Occidental, The Pioneer, and now as the “Sohotel”, this landmark building has long been a fixture in the Bowery, operating as a stop for travelers as far back as there are written accounts. Sohotel is more than just a hotel– it’s a neighborhood. It offers a fabulous choice of room types (all decorated to a high standard) and all the usual modern facilities you’d expect from a boutique hotel, but the without the huge designer price tag. The decor is exceptional for the price and comes with a slightly kitsch vibe – think dark woods, stylish exposed brickwork and lashings of animal print furnishings.

Refinery Hotel

In the upscale midtown garment district, this place pays homage to its history as a hat factory by mixing cool industrial spaces with repurposed vintage furniture made from old sewing machine tables and other tokens from the past. It’s got a really cool quirky vibe that attracts a young hip crowd of guests and locals alike. There are so many cool things within its walls… the rooftop bar is something else, glass-walled with amazing city views.. then there is a cool prohibition style jazz bar and a signature restaurant with old style leather booths and a delectable menu of locally sourced American dishes. It’s the kind of hotel you don’t really want to leave

The Marlton Hotel

The Marlton Hotel offers upbeat contemporary/classic accommodation housed in a historic building. Located in the trendy Greenwich Village, the building dates all the way back to 1900 and has hosted many important cultural figures over the years. The swanky and characterful Marlton is adorned with chic but cosy decor with more than a hint of nostalgia. Think stylish designer furniture, unique accents, dark woods and plush leather banquettes all bathed in a warm light. Other amenities include an onsite eclectic Mediterranean restaurant, a cool cocktail den, a coffee bar and a strong focus on vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options throughout the hotel – very hip but still realistically priced.

The Algoquin Hotel

The Algonquin Hotel is a historic hotel located at 59 West 44th Street in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. The hotel has been designated as a New York City Historic Landmark. The 181-room hotel, opened in 1902, was designed by architect Goldwin Starrett. It was originally conceived as a residential hotel but was quickly converted to a traditional lodging establishment. Its first owner-manager, Frank Case (who bought the hotel in 1927), established many of the hotel’s traditions. Perhaps its best-known tradition is hosting literary and theatrical notables, most prominently the members of the Algonquin Round Table.

The Mansfield Hotel

Constructed in the popular Beaux Arts style, and influenced by neoclassical Roman and Greek architecture, the Mansfield was originally built as a hostelry for well-heeled bachelors and socialites. Notables such as painter John Butler Yeats, father of the poet William Butler Yeats, stayed to experience a thriving New York following his immigration from Ireland. During the 1950s, the Mansfield was home to Max von Gerlach, who was believed to be the inspiration for Jay Gatsby, from F. Scott’s Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby.”
