Points of Interest

1. Café Cluny

Owned by Lynn Wagenknecht of Odeon fame, Café Cluny is a West Village bistro attracting diners with its eclectic décor and menu of simple, French-inspired cuisine. The dining room has closely-packed tables and a small corner bar lined with stools. Knick knacks and artwork adorn the walls, and the glass case full of stone birds is... More

You’re on your own at this hip approximation of a Victorian pied-à-terre, but that’s one of its selling points. Checking in means ringing the buzzer so a staff member can come up from the basement and hand you the key. Occupying an unmarked 19th-century town house, the inn’s 15 spacious rooms are tasteful arrangements of upscale flea-market... More

The small space, which has only two plush booths and a handful of barstools, is decked with antiques and retro-inspired pieces; ship plans from the early 1900’s serve as wallpaper, and an elevator is repurposed into a bathroom. The... More

The Palm Court’s famed stained-glass ceiling was re-created pane-for-pane with the help of New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission. Touch-screen AMX systems in the 282 guest rooms deliver on their promise to make easy the tasks of controlling lighting, contacting the concierge, and summoning your white-gloved butler. Unfortunately most... More
