Archer Hotel New York

Midtown Manhattan's boutique jewel
Archer Hotel New York mixes the creative artsy spirit of New York's Garment District with energetic, centrally located Midtown Manhattan. The Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel’s 180 rooms can be found right in the heart of the city, just blocks from Bryant Park, Times Square and the Theater District.

Designer Glen Coben cleverly gave this space an elegant, industrial twist that tips a hat to its history in the area. From the moment you enter through the brick-and-glass facade, hints of the neighborhood's past shines in the details (chesterfield sofas, subway-tiled bathrooms).

When you first walk in, it might surprise you that Archer is a hotel at all; the lobby opens to AVA Social, a lounge-worthy gastropub with eclectic food and a head-turning central bar. But look to the left and you will find a blue leather tufted counter staffed with smiling hosts eager to check you in and show you to your snug and fashionable room.

  • The glass-fronted building contains 22 floors in the heart of Midtown, and its views of the iconic Empire State Building are stunning. (For exclusive vistas, book an Empire-view room.)
  • Archer boasts an amazing collection of artwork. All the paintings and photographs on the lobby walls and in the guest rooms were curated from local artists. That includes a patio 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+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.
