With an exterior that resembles a roadside motor lodge, this remote Hell’s Kitchen hotel isn’t the snazziest property on the island. Still, the Skyline recently underwent extensive renovations, and its claim to fame as the “largest sleeping rooms in the city” may not be far from the truth. The deluxe king room, complete with standard amenities, is nearly twice the size of a typical chain hotel, while the junior suite adds an additional half-living room separated by a sliding glass door. The junior suite consists of an equally large living room that can be used as a second bedroom for large families or groups. 1050 Restaurant, serving American/Continental fare, and the Penthouse Ballroom, overlooking midtown, are among the hotel’s events spaces. Apart from an on-site pool, the Skyline’s nearby recreational options are few and far between. At least the dirt-cheap $10 daily parking rate (for cars) helps compensate guests for the extra cab fare to city attractions.Pros
Roomy accommodations, cheap parking and a pool.
Guests who value atmosphere over space and value should look elsewhere.
