5 Mid-priced and cool hotels New York


5 West 8th St
(betw 5th and 6th Ave)
Greenwich Village
+1 212 321 0100

For traditionalists looking to soak up true Greenwich Village spirit. A distinguished design has morphed this once flop house into something quite grand. Rooms are small, but beautifully appointed, with white marble baths outfitted with brass fixtures. The lobby is a popular NYC hangout. One block up from Washington Square Park.


310 West Broadway
(betw Canal and
Grand St)
+1 212 965 3000

For those who plan on hitting all the designer shops. Still trendy, who can resist the comfortable, voluptuous lounges which grace the second floor. You can totally relax in the comfy upscale rooms too, decked out in beiges and taupes, knowing that you are near to all that is Soho, but at the quieter end of the spectrum.


45 West 38th St
(betw 5th and 6th Ave)
Midtown ➅
+1 212 719 4100

If you’re looking for views for less cash. A sprawling 22-story hotel in an area that’s close to everything, but a little off the beaten track. Celebrity chef David Burke’s Fabrick restaurant is a treat to have off the lobby, and the rooftop bar Spyglass has winning views of the Empire State Building. Rooms are small but smartly laid out, with thoughtful touches.


15 Gold St (betw Platt St
and Maiden Lane)
Financial District
+1 212 232 7700

If you want to stay in the oldest part of Manhattan. Don’t let the plain brick facade fool you. Inside is a jewel of a hotel sporting the tone of a gentleman’s lodge – in tanned leather and polished wood. Rooms are sizable with marble baths. Close to subways for when you want to whisk uptown.


52 West 13th St
(betw 5th and 6th Ave)
Greenwich Village
+1 212 375 1300

If you love the village and walking everywhere. Gas lanterns adorn the entryway in this hotel evoking past times. The lobby is somewhat grand with velvet couches and a fireplace, and rooms are decently sized and priced, with Art-Deco flavor. Lots to do in any direction from the front door.
