About Moderne Hotel
The original boutique hotels were small, personable and unique. The Moderne Hotel honors those early days, before the concept multiplied across the city and became diluted. With just 40 rooms, the Moderne’s intimate scale and high-glamour aesthetic make it one of the best boutique options in the area. The stylish interiors feature bold, abstract artwork, design-forward furnishings and brightly patterned throw pillows.
In the richly-appointed guest rooms, the Moderne balances design with full-on comfort. The beds are especially soft, layered with Belgian sheets, and the bathrooms are stocked with upscale toiletries. Few of the rooms have views, but they make up for it with a rare treat in NYC: Quiet.
Another big draw of the hotel is its location on West 55th St., four blocks from Columbus Circle and Central Park. Head downtown from the hotel and you’ll hit Times Square and the Theater District in less than ten minutes—perfect for visitors who want easy access to Broadway shows without living among them. Compared to Times Square, this strip of West 55th St. is relatively subdued.
The lobby is cozy, but the relaxed second-floor lounge provides plenty of space to unwind, plus complimentary snacks and beverages. The Moderne also offers free access to the fitness center at their nearby sister property, Ameritania.
This Moderne Hotel is ideal for visitors who want to be near all the action, but not necessarily in it. It’s within walking distance to Times Square, but its location on the relatively relaxed West 55th St., coupled with its intimate scale and quiet, interior rooms, make it perfect for those who value a more low-key environment.
