Sneak Peek: New York's New Conrad Hotel


It’s no surprise that watching a sunset in Manhattan (drink in hand, of course) is as elusive as finding street parking. But the island’s west side is lined with buildings that look out over the Hudson River—why haven’t more places taken advantage of this great view?

Fortunately, someone’s doing just that. One of Hilton’s luxury brands, the Conrad, is opening soon in NYC’s Financial District and will feature an outdoor bar on the 16th floor (pictured, above)—ideal for sunset gazing. Oh yeah, and they’re doing other cool stuff, too. The place used to be an Embassy Suites, and while I appreciate ES’s big rooms and free hot breakfast, accumulating stars isn’t their focus. So I was excited to get a behind-the-scenes tour of the transformation.
