The New Yorker hotel has a prime location a block from Penn Station. Walk out to the Eighth Avenue side of the Manhattan station, go right a block, cross the street and there it is.
That location is now more valuable with the new Hudson Yards development taking shape, and the High Line.
The New Yorker retains its art deco look inside and out. The hotel’s interesting history is noted in a shrine to inventor Nikola Tesla, who lived there in his final years.
There’s a diner-style restaurant on the first floor, the Tic Toc, and an Italian trattoria.
The New Yorker is all about convenience. Check-in is fast and efficient. The rooms are well-appointed and clean. Major subway lines are within a block, and Times Square is a few blocks uptown. Rooms offer great views of the city and beyond.
For these reasons, particularly for the staff and the great rooms, the New Yorker has become one of our favorite hotels. It’s run by Wyndham. See website.
