About the King & Grove
After stints as the Thirty Thirty and Hotel Lola, in June of 2012 the hotel became King & Grove New York, part of a consortium that also includes properties in Brooklyn and Montauk. Judging by the new look of the place, one gets the feeling that this time its identity will stick.
The King & Grove New York's Flatiron neighborhood is booming with some of the city's trendiest new boutiques, restaurants and bars. It's also mere blocks from the Empire State Building, Bryant Park, the Fashion District and the area surrounding Madison Square Park.
What will travelers find if they choose the King & Grove? A handsome lobby scene for starters: a big open space that smartly integrates social space (namely a bar, with thoughtful seating options) and guest services like the front desk and concierge station. The centerpiece is a huge silver art installation that hangs from the ceiling like a cluster of balloons.
Rooms are done up in a stylish black-and-white color scheme, with geometric wallpaper and splashes of bright chartreuse. There's a range of room sizes: a twin bedroom and a classic single (125 square feet), plus suites and multiple queen-sized options, as well as the guest room (at about 400 square feet, it’s the hotel’s largest), which has two double beds and a sitting area. Bathrooms sport modern fixtures and glass showers, and some offer handicapped-accessible tubs. Throughout the hotel’s 276 rooms you’ll find flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi and iPod docking stations. And some rooms have views of the Empire State Building – ask for those when calling to reserve.
The hotel does significant business with international travelers and entertainment-industry clientele. The King & Grove’s dark, sexy lobby is also a choice hangout option for locals.
At the moment, the hotel has no restaurant of its own, though guests have myriad options just outside the front door. Across the street is the Italian restaurant Campanile, and next door to the hotel is Lalibela, an Ethiopian place where you can eat and then wander upstairs to have your fortune told by a psychic. Further down the block are Tavern 29 pub and Winston’s Champagne Bar
