More Blue Logan designs on the room keys.

This bed may look unassuming but it was insanely comfortable.

The symmetry of the doors on either side of the TV was very relaxing, we love balance.

The new décor is contemporary with a vintage twist, although it’s minmal, the abundant textures like the grasscloth walls and velvets make it so cozy and comfortable.

No shortage of drinks and stemware options in the mini-bar.

Any minibar with Tates cookies is fine by us.

Controversial choice of short robes!

It’s always better to have a separate bath and shower.

There are Ren products in the bathroom.

The typography was done by British illustrator Blue Logan and feels very New York.

The suite can be made private by pocket doors, which we liked a lot.

Another controversial choice: thong slippers! They’re actually really comfy.

The balcony: giving you classic New York Soho fire escape views.

Best part about the bathroom was the pocket door for privacy. That way you can close that one and the main bathroom door. Your romantic getaway will be saved of any awkward loo noises!

The second floor lobby has been completely overhauled and they have such a good vibe.

Books: the best kind of decor.

In the bar area there are a few private nooks and booths.

Art by British artist Harland Miller created and curated art for the walls.

Bar.

This piece made us smile.

The street level entry has been made to feel as comfortable as the main lobby.

Something about this façade feels warm and welcoming.

My room was a little suite, that sofa pulls out too.

    Really comfortable and mixes mid-century and contemporary style. It feels young but not desperate to be cool or anything.
