          The location is great. It's close to major transport lines and within 5 minutes' walk from the park. The staff is friendly and helpful. As far as hotels in New York go, it's also "affordable".

          There are some negatives: it's quite noisy and the rooms are very small. However, if you're holidaying in New York you will probably not spend too much time in your room. The breakfast options are limited to in-room service (i.e. very expensive) and the hotel's bar is not good value for money.

          The location of the Hudson couldn't be better as it is located near Columbus Circle and the Lower West End of Central Park. The hotel itself has an impressive lobby, but very slow elevators, and typically only 2 or 3 of the 8 (I think) that exist. Our room was tiny...and I mean tiny. We had a bed, a nightstand and a small stand with a TV. The bathroom could only fit one person in at a time. However, the price was right....about 149/night plus tax. It is also within a few steps of a Whole Foods Store, where inexpensive lunches and beverages could be purchased, and the subway. I would probably stay there again.

          Great Ambiance


          My husband and I stayed at the Hudson for a quick get away. We stayed there a total of 3 nights. I must admit that the room was very small, but it was one of the cleanest rooms I have ever stayed in and we do travel a bit. The staff was was very courteous, From the greeter at the door to housekeeping. This hotel is not meant for children. There is no dresser to put your clothes away, however, I would stay there again. I had a clean room and we were able to walk to all of the attractions. Not to mention one of the bars in town is right in this hotel. It is beautiful.

          Hudson Horrors


          We booked in for a fall weekend at the Hudson after staying in several Ian Schrager hotels in the past. As much as we love the Delano, we hated the Hudson. An extremely unfriendly 'welcome' by the front desk. Rooms so small they are claustrophobic- and these were upgrade rooms! The one bright spot was a lovely waitress in the library bar (Alex?). I won't go back. For the money, I'll take the Peninsula anyday.

          Won't Be Back


          I stayed at the Hudson this past weekend and was disappointed overall. At the "upscale" library bar on the lobby level, my husband & I paid $40 for 2 drinks, which I found to be absurd - even by NYC standards. Not to mention the fact that I've seen walk-in closets larger than our guest room. Let's put it this way - when you take a shower (even a short one), the entire guest room turns into a stifling over-heated sauna & you want nothing more than to open the door to the hall. I also did not appreciate the tiny, 13-inch TV - I practically had to sit at the foot of the bed to see what was on the screen. The singular upside is that the purpose of our stay was to attend a wedding, so we mercifully received a reduced rate as part of a block of reserved rooms - thank God. The check-in / check-out process was inefficient (no express check-out), & everyone working there seemed to be about 16-20 years old. Capping off our not-so wonderful stay is the fact that the "Agua" soap product provided in the shower (which, incidentally, was about a 3 foot X 3 foot cube) gave me the worst allergic reaction I have ever had. I ended up having to attend the aforesaid wedding with bumpy, itchy skin all over my cheeks. Thanks for nothing, Ian Schrager. Next time, stick to nightclubs.

          To say the rooms are small is an understatement


          When you first draw up here, the Hudson is very impressive. The building, the decor, the staff, the customers are all very stylish. You wonder why, as you queue for reception- how come it's so relatively cheap?

          You find out when you get to your room. Don't take your cat becuase you won't have room to swing it. Stylish yes, spacious - NO!. The effect is of a cabin on a yacht, what with the tiny dimensions and wooden floors. If you are at all claustrophobic, find somewhere else. If you have a lot of gear, find somewhere else. If you want to go to a cheap but trendy place, and don't mind the cramping- give it a try

          If you do stay, try to find a room as high as poissible. a lot of the rooms have windows opening out onto the atrium at the bottom of which is often a very noisy bar. the higher you are, the quieter it becomes

          Trendy = Trashy


          I live in Midtown and recommended the Hudson to my parents as a fun place to stay on their next visit to the big city.

          I've been to the Hudson a few times to have a drink and really liked the kitschy lodge atmosphere of the hotel.

          I went with my parents to check them into their room and that's when my opinion of this hotel changed drastically. The girl (and I mean girl, almost everyone that works there has to be in college or just graduated) at the front desk did not greet us very warmly. Infact she didn't greet us at all.

          She was very cold during the entire check in process and we were told that the room we had requested was not available (even though reservations were made 30 days in advance) and that their was only one other room in the hotel of our description (deluxe queen) clean.

          So, they were a bit disappointed but were eager to see their room. When we entered the room we were astonished to find that it was occupied by another guest who was occupied singing in the shower.

          Back to the front desk - asked to see the manager who did not offer to even acomodate with another room us for their mistake. The manager threatened to delete our reservations because were were upset! I informed him that the girl told us that that room was the only clean room (how absurd) and that a 4 star hotel is obliged to accomodate guests for their mishaps. With other guests listening to this now brawl he finally changed his tune (just a bit) and arranged another much smaller room.

          The worst part of it all is that the management did not apologize or even act civil. The girl even told me that several times that she has gone to hotels that this has happened to her! More like at a hostel! Mistakes happen and this one was even laughable but the blatant ignorance of the hotel's staff is far from a joke.

          My advice is DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY! For a pint sized room that is over $300 a night look into special rates at the Peninsula, St. Regis, the Shoreham or W Hotels, all which are in prime neighborhoods unlike the Hudson (58th b'tween 8th and 9th). It is very obvious that this hotel will not succeed if they do not teach their staff etiquette and general customer service do's and dont's. I'd suggest to just go their and have a drink if you don't mind paying $15 for a martini and if your in the neighborhood.



          Like many others, I heard the Hudson had small rooms but it's decor made up for it. Yes it was stylish and had "cool" lamps in the room etc.. but the whole atmosphere of the hotel was snobbish. Even the bellboys had attitude. The staff was not friendly or warm, never saw a maid the whole time we were there. The beautiful terrace that we would have loved to enjoy at night closed at 10:00 and so did the garden patio filled with lit candles and plenty of seats no one could go out and use. Overall lots of show, no go. Would not go back.



          I must admit after reading some very good and some very bad reviews of the Hudson Hotel, I was wondering how my experience would turn out.

          Upon arriving at the Hudson I was greeted by some VERY friendly staff members, in fact through out my week stay the staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. I made it a point to use as many of the services as possibe and at every turn my experience was A+. Yes the rooms are small...but very well appointed and functional. The bathrooms are tiny but very well designed. The roof top terrace was fantastic. The Hudson bar was amazing. The drinks above par.The cafeteria was great. I can not imagine staying anywhere else. Alot of money and time went into designing this place and it shows. Even the elevators were great.

          I loved this place!



          After reading all of the horrible reviews that the Hudson Hotel received I was a little skiddish about staying there but I had already paid in advance. From the moment my sister and I arrived at the hotel (4 am after a night of clubbing) we loved it!! The staff was fabulous and very helpful. Yes the rooms are small but we were lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite since there were no standard rooms availible upon our arrival. The decor is incredible and again, the staff was awesome! I am so happy that we stayed there and I will definitely stay there again. Regarding the room sizes, Hello! You are in New York!! Why are you hanging around in your room to begin with!!! The food at the restaraunt is delicious and it is definitely worth your time to at least visit the Hudson Bar if your not staying there. Hands down this is one of the best experiences I've ever had at a hotel.



          After seeing the Delano in Miami, I was anxious to stay in one of Ian Schrager's hotels. The Hudson Hotel seemed like the perfect choice for us. We are a young and hip couple in our 20s, and I especially love trendy and faddish hot spots. However, the Hudson was an immediate disappointment. The staff was incredibly rude. Whether it was answering one of our questions or picking up the front desk phone, they were not willing to lend a helping hand. In fact, all of the staff looked like they had just taken a giant dose of valium. While trendy, the room was incredibly small! It was the size of a dorm room. The bathroom was so small that my knees were pressed against the bathroom door when I used the toilet. And I am only 5'4. I can see staying here for maybe a night for the experience of it, but to stay any longer is crazy. Considering the number of cool hotels in NYC, it is insane to select this one.

          Outstanding Style


          I researched user reviews for Hudson on other sites, most of which complained about the room size. Face it, in New York city, you'll pay tons to get a large room. Despite the size of the room, which I personally found cozy, the decor was marvelous. The bed was the softest, cleanest bed I have ever seen in a hotel. The Lobby was a visual feast, as were the bars. All through the hotel, the furniture and artwork was modern, the lights were dim and unobtrusive, and the hotel was accented perfectly, including a fresh red rose on every table. Every floor smelled pleasantly of aromatherapy (not what you expect in the city), and we found the staff to be extremely helpful with our 'tourist' questions. The hotel was ideally located, and the sky terrace provided breathtaking views of the city. I was extremely impressed with this hotel, and would definitely stay there again.
