This is a cool hotel. Dark and broody with a terrace for drinks where the young and beautiful hang out showing each other pictures of cool things on iPads. Even better, the hotel will remove these beautiful young things to make way for paying guests which (partially) compensates those of us envious of their youth.
We spent a fortune but it was worth it. Ate at the Italian place a couple of times (good) and spotted Jody Foster there (obviously we pretended not to notice, to notice would be not cool).
Free rental of bicycles (cool ones, obviously) a big hit that you should do. Local area is bohemian - very mixed crowd and lots of little bars etc.
Rooms are NYC big (read small) but again, cool.
Service was excellent and I suspect that all the staff were 'resting' models and actors but not pretentious at all.
