“High design but a tad awkward.”
The hotel is very cute and it's next to the High Line. The rooms are on the small side and the high-design furniture is awkward. For example, the only seating consists of a stool and a bean bag. The bed is on a platform, essentially on the floor. Only a small table crowded with stuff and only a narrow shelf in the bathroom. The shower enclosure is essentially in the room and there's no privacy. The whole place looks cool but it isn't comfortable.
“Teeny Tiny Hipster Space”
The room was just too small and the desk minuscule. I was in NY to make a presentation and when I set about to get ready for it, I had to perch myself on the beanbag chair that was surrounded by my luggage. The desk "chair" was a foot stool of sorts w/o back support. While the hotel was nice enough to supply an ipad with the room, it dominated the little desk space there was. I knew I was getting a smaller room, and that it was to be a stylish "dark" hotel in a still gritty neighborhood. But the rolling out of bed onto the concrete floor was a bit tough for these older bones! I'm game for about anything but the space was inadequate for my wife and I. Only things one could do in the room were to (a) lay or play on the futon; (b) take a shower; (c) use toilet and brush teeth. Right by the High Line though. Remarkable lack of access to anything remotely resembling a coffee shop or deli. Staff very courteous. Hotel new, clean. popular restaurant downstairs. Nice espresso bar if you want to stay in.
