... I turned to the right and I saw only two seats available across the main aisle from each other. Barbara and I moved into the aisle and her seat was available but mine was blocked by a large red suitcase. The person sitting next to the my vacant seat was draped in a black robe, a black scarf and black face veil. They were staring down at their feet. The person had a very large red suitcase blocking passage to the seat. Barb said, "Excuse me, ...
... the road through it should be flanked by six metre high screens. Staten Island we didn’t visit. The ferry to it is free, because, as one New Yorker told us, “There’s nothing there”.
The same could be said about Manhattan. Grand Central is beautiful, especially the Vanderbilt Hall, but the Chrysler building, apart from its famed spire and eagle gargoyles, is a very ordinary building. The Empire State Building is unremarkable and nothing more than a ...
We left for heathrow at 6:15am, minimal traffic. Met Ruby at the airport at 10. Got an email confirming that I have been successful in my application for my counselling course and have got an interview. We chilled in the airport before departing at ...

We finally made it across to join the crazy lines to board the cruises - I swear half of NYC was down there in the boiling heat, including a significant number of Australians (isn't funny how you can pick out our accents from anywhere!). After 40 minutes of lining up (even though everyone had tickets?!), we were finally boarded and ready to head out on the grand finale of the day. I have to say ...

After we were dropped off back at our apartment, we chilled for a bit before walking over to check out the Flatiron Building (The Daily Bugle) as the sun was setting. Amanda and I saw that there was a gathering in Madison Square Park so we went to see what was going on. It looked like a mini music festival and Suzanne Vega was singing, it sounded really good and the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Night Hotel New York City
Great weekend in the City
Stayed at Night Mar 31-Apr 2, 2006 for $239 per night plus tax. My husband and I would definitely recommend this hotel...it was new, clean, cool, and staff was very attentive. The location--half a block from Times Square--made it the perfect spot for our theater tickets and dinner reservations. Although some would say rooms are small, I found ours to be on par with other hotel rooms we've stayed at in the City. Bedding, amenities, robes were all top notch and the black/white decor very chic. The manager on duty, Stacia was extremely helpful and accomodating with a small problem we were having while there.
We will definitely revisit Night.
The hotel NIGHT created a New York experience I will never forget. I do travel a lot and I have stayed at many of the best hotels in NYC but NIGHT hotel will be my home away from home in NY from now on! Upon arriving at NIGHT, the exterior of this hotel makes you think of the color of the sky at dusk. It has oversized black front doors, progressive dance music playing outside and well-groomed bellmen dress in chic black. When you arrive you get a feeling as if you should be behind a velvet rope waiting to enter the hottest nightspot in town. Once inside, the lobby is just as cosmopolitan and chic. Black walls, wonderful black and white photography, perfect chic furniture, and the most unbelievable front desk staff you will ever encounter. First everyone that works here is attractive and friendly. They are all dressed in black and white. When checking in, the front desk was overly friendly. I have never been at a hotel that had such a professional and friendly staff. During my check in, the lady at the front desk that was checking me in (Anastasia Meehan) asked me what I was going to be doing during my stay. I told her I had tickets to a few shows and had been trying for over a month to get tickets for one show in particular. She told me she would contact a few people and see if she could help me. The front desk also made sure to honor every single request I had for my room. Upon reaching my room the hallways played light progressive dance music as well and the numbers for the doors were on a monitor screen instead of just numbers posted on the wall. It was one of those added touches that let you know you were staying somewhere special. My room was amazing! The pictures do not do these rooms justice! Beautiful carpeting with the hotel logo on them, plasma televisions on the wall, amazingly soft mattresses were in the most unique beds I have ever stayed in, very cosmopolitan wallpaper, and an awesome soft black mosaic tiled bathroom with a rainfall shower head. The only part of the décor I did not enjoy as much was that the shower had a small glass partition but did not have a door to the shower. It did look cool but was not very good at keeping the water in the actual shower. Other than that, there was not one single thing about this room I would change. The décor of this hotel is absolutely beautiful and designed with a style very accommodating for all people but it is defiantly a hotel with a chic younger person in mind.
Two nights at the Night
We spent the weekend (April 7-9, 2006) in NYC and stayed at the Night on W. 45th Street. Great location for the theatre. Rooms are New York small and decorated in a chic black and white motif. Room and bathroom were very clean. Bed and pillows comfortable. Bathroom towels were soft and fluffy. Good shampoo, conditioner, etc. Also, they provide nice bathrobes.
Biggest complaint was that our room faced another building and really had no external light. Felt like a cave after the first day. A nice cave, though. Would stay there again, but try to get a street view. Staff was very friendly.
Night hotel is a FABULOUS, cool hotel to stay in. I stayed there at the end of March in a room with a queen bed for $239/night. After doing extensive research of reasonably priced cool boutique hotels in NYC, I think I struck gold with Night Hotel!! The rooms are new, clean and spacious for NYC standards. I was expecting a shoebox, but there was enough room for my friend and I to move around in with our luggage. The bathroom is clean too. Great "rain-like" shower head. Our room was pretty quiet. We stayed on the 6th floor next to the elevator. I was a little concerned about the noise, but it wasnt bad. You could hear the "ding" of the elevator, but it didnt bother me at night. I am a heavy sleeper though... The service is very friendly too. There were a few hiccups, but this is expected since the hotel had only been open for 5 weeks when we got there. Such as, the room service menus weren't ready (but they have a 24 hour diner that delivers to your room!!)
My boyfriend and I spent one night at Night Hotel. Location was superb..literally 1 minute walk from Times Square! We arrived in NYC early (10:30am); there was not a room ready for us, but they were able to check in all of our luggage. We visited the museum and when we returned for a nap at 3 pm, we were quickly given our keys and our luggage brought up. The bell-hop showed us some details of the room (how to work the TV, the mini bar, heat/ac, etc). The room was awesome. Although small (what is expected in Manhattan), it was wonderful
Very different and exciting!!
My stay at the Night Hotel was one I'll remember. I was fortuante enough to get a promo rate on the internet since the hotel isn't exactly in full swing yet. The fact that room service was not set up yet made no difference to me since the staff were all at my beckon call. They were very graceful about the inconveniences and made up for it ten fold with their friendliness.
The design of the hotel is very intriguing. For a boutique hotel, the rooms were luxurious and comfortable. I would reccomend this place to people in NYC for business or pleasure.
Great Value - Highly Recomend this
The Night has just opened but I had a really tremendous and stress free 3 night stay. The entire staff are fantastic and the rooms are really great. It is the perfect location in New York if you love the theater as we did. 2 thumbs up to the Night and their staff and we cannot wait to return!
I stayed at the Night hotel recently, and had a fabulous time. The staff were very friendly and accomadating. The decor was delightful, and very unique. The rooms were very comfortable, and efficient. The elevator was out of service, but the bell person was happy to escort me to my room and carry my luggage. Would definitely stay again.
