A New York hotel with a sense of place
In a city like New York with hotels on every corner, it’s refreshing to check in to one that’s far from the cookie-cutter design. Hyatt Union Square New York incorporates as much local flavor as possible — bath amenities are from C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries in Greenwich Village and a table in the lounge sits on a tree stump salvaged from Hurricane Sandy — without going overboard.
With just 178 rooms, this hotel feels more like a boutique inn than a Hyatt. Guest rooms feature hardwood floors and modern touches such as Geneva sound systems. Ten of the rooms, all located on the second floor, flaunt spacious terraces, which is something you don’t find very often in New York.
Dining is an important aspect of the New York hotel as well. One Five Hospitality Group (of Tocqueville and 15 East) offers three unique concepts here. The Fourth, which is the signature restaurant, is an American brasserie that serves up breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. And across the lobby is the lounge, Singl, named after single-malt Scotch.
