Highs & Lows

  • I stayed in a terrace suite, and I absolutely suggest you do too. (That is, unless you can afford the penthouse.) The terrace suite invites fantastic natural light into the room, which I need. And the terrace is huge. Those city views are breathtaking. Oh hi there, Central Park, which, FYI is just a five minute or less stroll from the hotel. There’s also two flat-screen TVs and a Nespresso machine.

  • The room’s design was perfect. Opulent but not the in-your-face kind.

  • The bed was great, but the star of the room, besides the terrace was THE SHOWER. You can fit like five people in that shower. I’ve never seen such a massive rain shower head. Heaven is real.

  • The Fresh brand products, which I love, especially the shampoo.

  • The electrifying lobby! Feels like you’ve found yourself in a modern, super hip art gallery. I’m so into the Instagram posting-friendly, towering, trippy video wall.

  • Art everywhere! And that’s all because of the Quin Arts program, which offers bi-monthly exhibition series, interactive artist salons, a permanent collection, and that aforementioned amazing 15-foot abstract video wall.

  • The location is everything. Central Park, Radio City, the LOVE sculpture, etc.

  • Fantastic, friendly customer service.

Important Bits

  • Type

    Artsy, chic midtown boutique. That rhymed!

  • Vibe

    It felt very Manhattan, if that makes sense. In other words, it’s located midtown and super close to iconic Manhattan staples (Central Park, Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center, MoMA, so much shopping, etc), but it’s on the relatively quiet 6th Avenue.

  • Location

    Midtown Manhattan.

  • Rooms

    208

  • Music

    Chill, hip music in the magic and moody lobby.

  • Year Opened

    2013

  • Designed By

    Perkins Eastman. Fun fact, according to Quin’s site: the hotel was “Once host to the century's greatest Artists, including Ignacy Jan Paderewski, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Marc Chagall” before being restored by Perkins Eastman.

  • Health & Wellness

    A well-equipped gym.

  • Restaurant

    The Wayfarer which serves tasty American fare to a hip crowd.

  • Bar

    There’s a big bar in the restaurant.

  • Minibar

    Yep. The boutique minibar staples.

  • Children

    Sure, but keep them away from the art, please!

  • Price

    Pretty good prices for a hip midtown boutique.
