A luxe downtown Manhattan destination
As one of just a few luxury hotels in Lower Manhattan, Conrad New York stands out from the moment you walk in. The atrium lobby is a showstopper with its 14-story, blue-and-purple Sol LeWitt mural reflecting azure hues onto the two-story, cable-and-aluminum sculpture by Monica Ponce de Leon.
The 463 guest suites — yes, they are all suites — are nothing short of contemporary works of art themselves. Expect a two-room layout, which is provides plenty of extra space for work or leisure, with a blond wood design scheme and contemporary accents.
Head down to the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel's onsite restaurant, Atrio, for a Mediterranean meal along with views of the Hudson River. Or, during warmer weather, make your way up to the rooftop Loopy Doopy Bar for some light bites and craft cocktails.
