Close to Grand Central

Grand Central Station is a 6-minute walk from Pod 39, and guests can reach the shops of Bryant Park in 12 minutes. Times Square, the Museum of Modern Art, and Central Park South are less than a half-hour away on foot. The theaters of Broadway are a 20-minute walk from the hotel.

Cocktails on the rooftop

Guests can enjoy the view from the rooftop lounge with a cocktail, then grab a bite at acclaimed Salvation Taco taqueria and cantina. The vibrant bar doubles as a playroom, so it's possible to hit a ping pong ball with one hand while sipping a beer with the other.

Free WiFi, cool design

Snug, stylish hotel rooms feature steel or blond-wood furnishings with blue accents and white-tiled bathrooms. Guests can kick back watching the flat-screen TV, and surf the Web using free WiFi. Bathrooms impress with rainfall showers and designer toiletries.
