Midtown West

Hotels in Midtown West

Most people don't think of midtown Manhattan as a place to chill out—but don't tell the Shoreham, a 177-room hotel that resembles a chic spa retreat.

This comfortably chic hotel holds a prime location—flanked by Times Square and Fifth Avenue—and adds its soaring 48 floors to the already magnificent New York City skyline. Built from the ground up, this new property strikes a cosmopolitan pose in midtown.

Stylish and compact, this former members-only club is a well-designed secret among midtown hotels. The 65 smallish rooms have combed-plaster walls, chocolate-marble showers, and Honduran mahogany accents; TV's placed behind two-way mirrors are clever space-savers.

Situated within a mile and a half of Central Park, Times Square, and the theatre district, this 17-story hotel is ideal for visitors seeking a convenient location and affordable rates. The 597 rooms are basic but clean and comfortable, and all of them are large by New York standards.

With a faux fur–clad lobby, Jetsons-style leather chairs, and mod prints by photographer Guy Bourdin, 6 Columbus presents an opportunity to revel in 1960’s nostalgia.

Situated just south of Central Park, Le Parker Meridien hotel juxtaposes classic chic with whimsical details.

A modern interpretation of a British gentlemen’s club, the Blakely hotel is situated in midtown west, just a short walk from Central Park and Broadway. Inside, the lobby is furnished with Persian rugs, worn leather couches, and bookshelves lined with Charles Dickens classics.

Instantly recognizable by the large red “WJ” marking the front entrance, the six-story Washington Jefferson Hotel is located within a 10-minute walk of Times Square, Central Park, and the theatre district.

Since opening in late 2006, the London may have received less press than its Gordon Ramsay-run in-house restaurant, but this elegant, all-suite hotel justly deserves its own following.

When trendsetting hotelier Ian Schrager opened the Royalton in 1988, he proved that a hotel could be as hot of a destination as a nightclub.
