Archer Hotel New York

Midtown Manhattan's boutique jewel
Archer Hotel New York mixes the creative artsy spirit of New York with energetic, skyscraper-laden Midtown Manhattan. The Forbes Travel Guide Four Star Hotel’s 181 rooms can be found right in the heart of the city, just blocks from the Theater District and world-class shopping.

Designer Glen Coben cleverly gave this space an elegant, industrial twist that tips a hat to its history in the Garment District. From the moment you enter through the sparkling-glass facade, hints of the neighborhood's past shines in the details, from the antique sewing machine perched atop the vintage catwalk over the bar to the brightly upholstered furniture.

When you first walk in, it might surprise you that Archer is a hotel at all; the lobby looks more like the entrance to a swanky restaurant, a sentiment enhanced by the actual chic, industrial-style bar to the right of the main door and Charlie Palmer Steak just beyond. But look to the left and you will find a robust marble counter staffed with smiling concierges eager to check you in and show you to your snug and fashionable room.
Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Archer Hotel New York is only blocks from some of the most popular destinations in the city. From there, you can walk to Times Square, Grand Central Station or Rockefeller Center.
  • The glass-fronted building contains 22 floors in the heart of Midtown, and its views of the iconic skyline are stunning. (For exclusive vistas, book the panoramic Empire Suite.)
  • Archer boasts an amazing collection of original artwork. All the paintings and photographs on the lobby walls and in the rooms are done by local artists. That includes a dress sculpture by Thea Lanzisero (another nod to the hotel's Garment District history).
  • Thoughtful design details make the Archer experience special, from stylish "blue sky" umbrellas by the Museum of Modern Art in each room to Malin and Goetz toiletries.
  • Perched on the 22nd floor, the glamorous Spyglass rooftop bar puts you up close to skyline icons like the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building.
