Designed by Philippe Starck, the Hudson is very well located by Columbus Circle and practically on the corner of Central Park. The property has a cool décor and a vibrant atmosphere, and some of its highlights include the lobby covered in plants and the many in-house eating options. The hotel bar scene heats up at night, so grab a seat at the beer hall and chill out watching the cool crowd made up of guests and locals. Rooms are rather small and with strong wooden motif, top-notch linen and some design objects. If space is a concern, select one of the more spacious excellent suites available.
