I loved the Maritime! From the wonderfully maintained 60s architecture to the great food at the Bottegga. Its location is perfect...right in the heart of Chelsea, near the High Line and Chelsea Market (great food mecca). The culture and life of the hipster crowd was great for drinks on the terraces and the clubs next door. The staff are attentive and polite...and they dress cool too!
The trip was primarily for business so we were able to order in room service (a bit pricey) for early breakfasts before we hit the road, and the lobby allowed for informal impromptu meetings - again with doting staff.
The rooms were awesome - amazing view out to the High Line and beyond. I loved the nautical theme, with a cabin styled and designed space. It utilised all nooks and crannies and made the room feel spacious. The mini-bar is stocked to the hilt, although I think some things are a little over-priced...but that's what you expect with a place like this. The CO Bigelow amenities are the perfect escape to a long day (lavender peppermint) - if only they sold them in stores! What we disliked was the marble flooring in the bathrooms - extremely cold to walk on, especially when you wake up in the morning! But it was something we were able to overlook due to the great service.
Overall, it was a great stay, and I'm already planning on booking there for my next NYC trip.
