Mystic hotel is both memorable and fabulous is several ways! From the moment your cab pulls up , the Mystic hotel overhang pops with class and excitement. Once you walk it you're greeted with the most clean and delightful smell of what I can only imagine are french flowers. On the walls are modern, simple art. As you walk up to the counter, we were greeted by a handsome and extremely kind gentleman who provided us with all of the details we needed for our stay to include directions to Chinatown and all of the best local cafes.

The elevator is small and vintage and provided a quirk that we both found exciting and quaint. Had we taken the stairs, we would have been greeted by a romantically lit red carpet with giant window at each level. (as shown in photo)
The room was small but just what you would expect from a "boutique" style hotel. The bed was a queen size bed with clean and plush white bedding with ample pillows. Above the bed was a large mirrored wall piece that provided the illusion of a room twice the size. Each side of the bed had a small table and a storage area. The window on the adjacent wall had a cute seating arrangement with a small art deco table and a dangling red spotlight above the seat. (as featured in the photo)
The bath room was small with a sliding glass door. The sink fixtures were very modern and most notably, the mirror was framed very uniquely making the area very beautiful. The shower was clean and the products offered were high quality.
The room itself was clearly a delight. It was beautiful and the best hotel experience I've had to date. Simply put, in my mind...it's my happy place :)
All of this doesn't even explain to you the value of the Burritt Room. A very swanky, hip and fun tavern with a delightful staff who are equally accommodating during slow hours as much as their peak hours. They even went so far as to explain some of their most signature drinks and talk with customers about previous life experiences and signature delights.
If you want to experience Union Square, Chinatown, Little Italy and more, Mystic Hotel is the place for you. When you're there, you feel like you're in the home you wish you could afford!
Finally, our reservations were made last minute, in fact just 8 hours before our stay. The staff provided us with a government discount and was very pleasant even at 3am!
LOVE LOVE Mystic. Can't wait to go back again.
