Hyatt Union Square New York

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 without going overboard.

With just 178 rooms, this hotel feels more like a cozy boutique stay than a Hyatt. Guest rooms feature hardwood floors and modern touches such as Kube sound systems. Nine of the rooms, all located on the second floor, flaunt spacious terraces — something you don’t find very often in New York.

Dining is an important aspect of the New York City hotel as well. Restaurant group APICII offers unique concepts, serving up breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Sitting in the middle of Manhattan’s up-and-coming Digital District, Hyatt Union Square New York offers easy access to a wide array of attractions.
  • Located in the Union Square neighborhood near the East Village, you’ll find the famous Greenmarket, the historic Union Square Park, great shopping and fantastic restaurants all within an easy walk of the hotel.
  • Designed by acclaimed interior designer Paul Vega, the hotel is both residential and contemporary. It’s modern enough that you can tell a lot of thought was put into creating a stylish space, but doesn’t feel sterile.
  • Throughout the hotel, you’ll find unique touches. In the restaurant, that interesting chandelier hanging overhead features hand-blown glass, while one wall is dedicated to book shelves. 
Things to Know
  • The luxury hotel sits about a block and a half from Union Square Park, so during the summertime, you can take advantage of the famous Union Square Greenmarket for fresh produce, artisan meats and plenty of entertainment.
  • Visiting in the winter is just as attractive. The entire city is engulfed in festive décor, the Union Square Holiday Market debuts and the holiday spirit is running rampant throughout New York.
  • The entire hotel is sleek yet welcoming with a show-stopping historic facade, 25-foot lobby ceilings and wood floors in the guest rooms. 
The Rooms
  • With just 178 rooms, each one feels unique. The regular rooms feel spacious, especially by New York standards, and about 30 percent of accommodations have an open-bath floor plan that makes these rooms feel even bigger.
  • All of the accommodations boast wood floors, Italian millwork and a cork wall, adding a decidedly contemporary feel to the room.
  • You won’t find much artwork in the standard rooms, but one really striking piece comes in the form of a headboard. Created by a Scottish designer, the cushions have a spring/summer design on one side and a fall/winter theme on the other.
  •  Another nine rooms and suites, which are located on the second floor, sport beautiful terraces — a rarity in New York.
The Restaurants
  • One of the coolest things about Hyatt Union Square New York is its focus on quality dining. These aren’t your run-of-the-mill hotel restaurants; in fact, an outside group (APICII) partnered with the property to provide a unique, neighborhood-inspired dining experience.
  • The Union Square hotel’s main restaurant, Bowery Road, is an American brasserie that serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. Here, you’ll find options ranging from grain bowls to a sublime burger made with Pat LaFrieda beef.
  • Don’t miss a cup of coffee or a freshly baked pastry at the Bowery Road bar. 
  • On the other side of the lobby, you’ll find the Library of Distilled Spirits, a comfortable lounge named for its tome-lined walls.
