Paying homage to its printing house past, this 222-room, 18-storey eco hotel with its inviting rooftop lounge and unobstructed sweeping views of the Hudson River on the west and the midtown Manhattan skyline facing east, makes an indelible imprint as the first upscale midtown hotel to grace the far west of Times Square. The building, built in 2010 with colossal windows, soaring ceilings and a striking, 3-storey rooftop addition by architect Carlos Zapata, underwent major transformation while still maintaining the integrity of the original structure. The air-conditioned hotel welcomes guests in a lobby with 24-hour reception and check-out services, a hotel safe and lift access, and there is an on-site restaurant and bar and conference facilities available. For additional fees, guests may make use of the Internet access, room and laundry services, and a car park.
The charming city hotel is located in New York City's burgeoning and historic Hell's Kitchen neighbourhood. It is close enough to the city's iconic epicentre, yet far enough away to be an inviting and playful urban retreat. The property is convenient to Columbus Circle (3.2 km) and the Time Warner Center and just a stroll away from such notable landmarks like Central Park South (3.3 km) and the American Museum of Natural History. Guests will find shops, Penn Station, the Hudson River and Madison Square Garden around 3.2 km away, while restaurants are to be found in the immediate vicinity. Miramar Ski Club is approximately 6.4 km from the eco hotel, Times Square is 1.1 km away and Manhattan Beach is around 30 km away. The city of Philadelphia is approximately 172 km away. Other nearby places of interest include the Intrepid Museum (1.6 km), Javits Convention Center (1.1 km), Gershwin Theater (900 metres) and Rockefeller Plaza (1.6 km).
The hotel's guest rooms include luxurious linens, large-scale artwork, modern linear desks, an LCD flat-screen TV, safe, iron and ironing board and wireless Internet access. All guest rooms feature soaring ceilings ranging from 3.5 m - 4.5 m, stone-tiled bathrooms with oversized showers and bathtubs, textured stone accent walls, a full-length mirror, hairdryer and marble countertops.
