Highs & Lows

  • Those escalators. Yes, they’ve been all over your Instagram feed, but in person their magic never gets old.

  • In a perfect world, the lobby would be my apartment.

  • The architecture is amazing - tucked just far enough into Chrystie Street, you would never expect to find this sleek playground for the senses waiting beyond a few discreet bushes.

  • I was in the heart of NYC but never wanted to leave the hotel, is that weird?

  • Appealing to all us independent travelers, there’s a self-service closet on each floor where you can stock up on additional towels, toiletries, and…ice!

  • The staff, you guys were awesome.
