1. Westgate New York Grand Central Hotel in New York City
Though housed in a historic building, the Westgate Grand Central in Midtown Manhattan is a beautifully remodeled hotel that features 300 suites, light and airy design, and modern amenities.

2. TWA Hotel
Though brand new, the TWA hotel is a throwback to the sixties, when the building in which it is housed was built as a terminal for the now-defunct Trans World Airlines. The hotel is adjacent to JFK airport and features 512 guestrooms (all with ultra-thick windows to reduce the noise of the jets taking off), a 10,000 square-foot observation deck, and a swimming pool.
3. Equinox Hotel
Equinox, the nation-wide fitness brand, is branching out into the hospitality industry. Its new 212-room property sits within the Hudson Yards and plans to cater to the same clientele as its fitness centers. The resort offers a spa, SoulCycle, and healthy room service options (no creamy pasta here!). Guests also enjoy access to the 60,000 square-foot fitness center, a plunge pool, saltwater pool, and outdoor pool, among other amenities.
4. Times Square EDITION
If Times Square is calling your name, book a room at Times Square EDITION, a 452-room, 43-floor mega hotel. The hotel plans to include a bar and dining room, where Michelin-starred chef John Fraser will serve up gourmet eats.
5. Sister City
You don’t have to be wealthy or even well-off to enjoy upscale lodging in NYC. Sister City, a project spearheaded by Ace Hotel chain, is being applauded for its affordable rates and minimalist vibe. The 200-room hotel is situated on the former location of Bowery Salvation Army and features entry-level options coming in at as small as 130-square feet. Rooms contain a bed, storage, nightstand, and small private bathroom.
6. Hotel Hendricks
As its namesake was, this swank new hotel plans to be a trendsetter with its mix of mirrors and mahogany, animal print, exposed concrete, and polished copper décor. The hotel is located midtown and features 176 rooms. Rates are surprisingly affordable.
7. Moxy NYC Chelsea
The Moxy chain, which is part of the Marriott International brand, designed this Chelsea hotel with millennials in mind. The three-tier hotel boasts 349 rooms, a street-facing atrium, a vertical wall of greenery, and a small flower shop at the entrance (Gwyneth Paltrow-approved).
8. Renaissance New York Chelsea Hotel
The Renaissance New York Chelsea Hotel pays homage to the past and mother nature via its rooftop garden terrace, dark woods, and earth tones. Because the site was once home to the Antiques Garage Flea Market, the lobby features a massive two-story installation of antique knobs, locks and keys.
9. The Artezen
The Artezen, located in the financial district, is another hotel that boasts minimalist vibes. Though the 89 rooms aren’t as compact as those at Sister City, they top out at 275 square feet. The hotel’s rooms and lobbies feature works by local artists.
10. Selina Bowery
Selina Bowery is a Latin American-inspired hotel that caters to millennials and digital nomads alike. This Chelsea hotel will be the brand’s first in NYC and all of the U.S., and boasts 126 rooms, an art gallery, and co-working space. What sets is apart, however, is the fact that it plans to offer a majority of its 63,000 square-feet to artists as studios, recording studios, and in-residency programs.
