We stayed at The Hudson on West 58th Street. It's just around the corner from Central Park. The Location is great. The hotel was designed by Philippe Starck who named his Hudson chair after this hotel. I loved staying here and I'd highly recommend it but just a couple of negatives...
1. The rooms are tiny, really tiny but if your looking for fab hotel in a fab location this compromise is worth it.
2. The rooms are very dark, they are wood paneled which is gorgeous but the lack of a ceiling light and natural light (due to high rises) was a little annoying.
3. Although it's very good value to stay at the Hudson they make up for it in the restaurant and bar! One glass of wine in the Library was $18!
It was New York Fashion Week while we were there and the hotel was buzzing with models and pretty cool people plus one morning I looked out to check the weather and there was a fashion show/shoot on the roof garden!
