The elegant rooms exude style with a twist of artistic decadence and traditional New York flair with a modern edge. The hotel’s own 24 hour kiosk is stocked with all the goodies needed by 24/7 city travellers. And there’s free wifi!

60 Thompson is a sleek and stylish SoHo retreat that is out to impress with its clean and modern design by Thomas O’Brien and Aero Studios. The entrance of the hotel shines with numerous shelves of backlit glass jars of orchids.

60 Thompson owes part of its popularity to the hip crowd as well as its charming SoHo location and attentive service. The sophisticated, Moroccan-inspired rooftop lounge “a60” is accessible exclusively for hotel guests and offers unobstructed city views. The clean and modern rooms are accented by marble bathrooms and luxurious Kiehl’s beauty products. The mezzanine-level ‘Thom Bar’ draws a young and well-dressed clientele especially during the bustling event shift.

The French Quarters Guest Apartments is located in the heart of Hell’s kitchen. Apart from pleasing design enthusiasts by its sophisticated ambiance, this is also located in the mecca for gourmet lovers. NYC’s famed Restaurant Row is just around the corner, Broadway and Times Square is just a few minutes’ walk away. Relax in the charming rooms with a distinct twist of New Orleans flair and be spoiled by the hotel’s amenities and its central location to the best that New York has to offer.

The luxuriously modern Chambers Hotel is located in the epicentre of Manhattan’s fashionista hot spot. Just a few steps from 5th Avenue and with its legendary shopping venues such as Bergdorf Goodman and Tiffany’s, this hotel embodies the fashionable culture surrounding it. The calming interiors of the Chambers Hotel house over 500 original works of contemporary art including Roberta Smith, John Waters and others.

    Thanks for your comment John. These hotels are individually operated or part of small, exclusive chains.

    Interesting – I’ve never heard of any of these and they all seem so unique. Are they all individually operated or are any affiliated with the larger hotel programs? It’d be nice to be able to use points on a hotel like this.
