The Hudson Hotel

One of New York’s hippest hotels, the Hudson, promotes itself as ‘The’
ultimate lifestyle hotel for the 21st century. Located in midtown, just steps
from Central Park, Columbus Circle and the theatre district, Hudson is a
brilliant reflection of the boldness and diversity of the city, stylish, young
at heart and utterly cool. Hudson’s main entrance features a classic Philippe
Starck play on proportions, a small door leads into a neutral, low-slung foyer
that functions brilliantly as a decompression chamber, transferring guests from
the buzz of New York to the separate reality within. This i zone contains a
singular, intriguing element where a thirty-foot tunnel of vivid
chartreuse-coloured light pierces the room at an oblique angle. This luminous
glass tunnel houses an escalator that transports you, both literally and
figuratively, to a dream world that is both captivating and unforgettable,
Hudson’s climactic lobby. With forty-foot ceilings and rampant climbing ivy, it
is a soaring and magical space unlike any other.

The ethos of the Hudson is one of sharing space, while it should be mentioned the rooms are small by New York standards, this is more than compensated for by the inspired choice of public areas, ranging from the splendid sky roof terrace with loungers, perfect for enjoying a cocktail in the sun enjoying views across the Hudson river, the outdoor Arabian themed terraced bar area, the Hudson Cafeteria; a soaring and dramatic, yet warm and intimate midtown Manhattan restaurant with oversized communal wood tables and benches of a homely pantry style. and the Hudson Bar, one of New York’s hottest nightspots from the moment it opened, a dazzling venue decorated in a riotous collection of styles. It features a glass floor lit from beneath, a hand painted ceiling by world-renowned artist Francesco Clemente, and furniture design that looks like Louis XV meets 2001: A Space Odyssey. It is the perfect place for drinks, lively conversation, people-watching, celebrity spotting and experiencing the undeniable excitement of New York.

Rooms at the Hudson are compact but exceptionally cool, richly panelled
Makore wood walls and floors imported from Africa evoke the spirit of travel to
an exotic destination. Every detail emphasizes a sense of adventure, including
furniture upholstered in steamer trunk fabric and finished with brass rivets.
Bedside lamps with allegorical images hand-painted by renowned artist Francesco
Clemente lend a spirit of dreamlike fantasy. Crisp linens, entertainment on
demand, in-room wireless and luxurious bath products from agua by Korres assure
every guest need is met in consummate style.
