1.CitizenM New York Bowery – Manhattan
The concept of this hotel is sure to win you over! It’s a friendly place to live, with 24-hour restaurant service, an exceptional rooftop, and a top-notch gym. The rooms are comfortable and the view from their large bay windows is breathtaking. They’re also connected, so you can manage the blinds, lights, music and even watch Netflix or Disney+ at the end of the day.
Located on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, you’ll be right in the heart of the hustle and bustle and all the best bars and restaurants. The location is top-notch, less than a 20-minute walk from Little Italy and Soho.

The other very positive point about this hotel is the design and comfortable common areas you can enjoy: a cinema room for 50 people (yes yes totally 😂), a gym open 24 hours a day and a café. One last point to convince you: from the hotel’s rooftop, you’ll see the Statue of Liberty, no less. 😎
To reach Manhattan, you can take the boat or walk 15min to access the subway.

4. Arlo NoMad – Manhattan
A new hotel in a perfect location: 300 meters from the Empire State Building and 650 meters from Madison Square, the 6 subway isn’t far away either. We find it ideal if you’re planning a short stay in New York and want to be as close to Manhattan as possible. The 14m2 rooms each have a crazy view of New York through their huge bay windows. This is the hotel where we dream of going to sleep! A must during your visit to one of the two rooftops with panoramic views and the hotel’s Mediterranean-inspired restaurant.
++: the view of Manhattan from the rooms, a sure-fire favorite.

5. The William Vale – Brooklyn
This hotel is a little one in the heart of Brooklyn! Who’d think you’d find an 18-meter swimming pool on the roof of this Williamsburg hotel? My second favorite feature of this hotel is the large bay windows in the rooms, offering exceptional views. Some even have balconies facing Manhattan. 😍 The staff are very welcoming and helpful, which makes for a very pleasant stay.

6. CitizenM New York Times Square – Manhattan
This hotel is located at the foot of Times Square, ideal for a stay in the heart of New York! The hotel is ultra-modern, the design is top-notch and the atmosphere is very pleasant. The hotel’s 3 terraces are perfect for relaxing after a day in the Big Apple. A gym is also available, for the more motivated among you! 😉
The rooms are very comfortable, with comfortable beds. As with the CitizenM Bowery, the rooms are connected, so you can manage your room’s music, lights and blinds.
