I knew nothing about this hotel until I was booked into it on a recent business trip. Located midway down 44th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues, its front is so unprepossessing it's easy to miss (my cab driver certainly did). Once inside the doors, however, a whole world of luxury opens up. The open plan lobby/bar/restaurant is dark-panelled and sinuously curved, a triumph of modern design in what must have been a blocky functional building. The reception desk inside a cutout niche in the wall is a trifle much, but the staff is gracious and helpful, and the rooms -- well, suffice it to say I've never had a better sleep in a hotel room anywhere. For those who like a late-night scene, the lobby bar doesn't disappoint. Just make sure to flag down a server the moment you get there and keep an eye on them so they don't go missing.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

The design - simultaneously sophisticated and complex - juxtaposes an icy cast-glass vestibule and brass furnishings with soft suede upholstery, thick leather walls and hide-covered chairs to create a dark, sexy and luxurious space. Design and architectural details include a mammoth floor-to-ceiling hand forged cast-bronze fireplace, a twenty-foot screen that was once part of the facade of a building in France and hand-upholstered leather walls. ... more less
