HGU New York

Old New York meets new New York

The lobby and lounge set the tone—floor-to-ceiling columns, neutral hues, decorative molding, a contemporary art collection, an asymmetrical chandelier, a marble-mantel fireplace. At this newly renovated 110 year old landmark building, guests experience a lovely blend of history and artistry.

Ultra-chill hotel by day, contemporary art gallery by night

What it's like

Fresh from a top-to-bottom renovation, HGU outlaws cookie-cutter design in favor of a creative style with beaux-arts accents. Reminiscent of a residential living space, the guestroom entryway serves as a decompressing welcome home. Inside, hand-woven patchwork Turkish rugs and plush headboards compliment wood cabinets, fine furniture, and white tile pre war-style bathrooms. Every room comes with an iPad, as well as wireless charging technology provided by Fli Charge (also found throughout the property for convenient charging anywhere).   

Independent spirit

High art, high tech, high hospitality.

Small touches

HGU joined forces with Gallery 151, a premier contemporary art gallery in the Chelsea neighborhood, to showcase some of New York's most prominent and up-and-coming artists throughout the property.  

Eat and drink

The Lobby Bar serves professionally prepared coffee and cocktails in a cozy, well-lit room flanked by large paintings and accoutered with handsome leather and suede furniture.  
NoMad Kitchen opens in August.
The rooftop lounge, set to open in 2017 with bistro lighting and views of the Chrysler building, will serve a cocktail menu, a juice bar menu, and a small plates menu.
