About the MAve NYC
The MAve NYC is a small boutique hotel that emphasizes style without sacrificing quality or substance. The sleek rooms are appointed with blonde bamboo hardwood floors and glass-enclosed showers, and the lobby is decked out in gleaming red and white, with a large case of decorative red-and-white balloons. Stay here and you just might feel like a fabulous extra in a White Stripes video.
The hotel is well-situated just off of Madison Square Park, a beloved local greenspace that isn’t necessarily on every tourist’s checklist, though it should be – grab a Shake Shack burger and you’ll see why New Yorkers flock here for lunch. The nearby Flatiron Building is a marvel to look at, and the Empire State Building can be easily reached by foot. And you’re within easy range of much culinary thrill-seeking in Korea Town.
A lot of hotels try to lure guests by promoting their fabulous food and wine programs. The MAve NYC takes another approach: With the exception of a free continental breakfast, the hotel dispenses with dining and drinking altogether. The idea is to pass the savings on to the customer, and create a less pricey alternative to nearby competitors. The MAve is hardly a bare-bones crashpad, however – it offers free Wi-Fi, ultra plush pillow-top mattresses, H20 Aquatics bath products and 32" HDTVs in every room.
The MAve speaks to the traveler who wants style, but isn’t impressed by a fancy name or a cooler-than-thou lobby scene. Its location is convenient but not trendy. Its rooms are contemporary but not over the top. Families do just fine here, but so do solo travelers. As a rule, although the MAve has its own identity and aesthetic, it’s enough of an all-purpose hotel to not box itself into serving just one traveling niche.

And of course nearby alternatives abound, including Eleven Madison Park, which is widely considered one of the finest restaurants in New York
