Profile

Nestled between industrial buildings and the Queens end of the 59th Street Bridge, this boutique hotel is a mod oasis in an otherwise gritty area. Despite its lackluster surroundings, the 63-room spot boasts ultrasleek décor and is a convenient option for wedding parties celebrating at nearby banquet hall the Foundry. The spacious, high-ceilinged rooms are meticulously decorated in white, gray, and rust orange, with a minimalist design that focuses on openness and visibility. How open and visible, exactly? In the king superior rooms, the large bathrooms are completely exposed—meaning there are no walls to divide the spalike space from the rest of the suite. (Suites with frosted-glass–enclosed bathrooms are available for guests seeking a less voyeuristic experience.) Hip-hop tracks spin in the lobby lounge and bar, where modern beige banquettes and mirrored orbs give the room a chic, space-age feel. There’s also a tiny on-site café, a 24-hour fitness center, and a 6,000-square-foot rooftop lounge with a D.J. booth, fire pit, and a stunning view of Manhattan. And speaking of Manhattan, a shuttle service ($5 per room, per trip) takes guests to nearby subway stops.

Pros

Spacious, modern rooms; impeccably clean facilities; and a swanky rooftop lounge.

Cons
There is nothing to do within walking distance. Plus, the surrounding area is in various stages of development…or decay.

Claim to Fame
Occupants of nearby Silvercup Studios have used the hotel for TV shoots, so you may recognize the lobby lounge or rooms from 30 Rock and Gossip Girl.
