60 Thompson St, New York, NY 10012, USA
The hotel feels like a private club rather than a hotel. The former 60 Thompson hotel underwent a major face lift, but designer Tara Bernerd’s modern, sophisticated aesthetic retains its homely feel. It has 97 minimalist rooms with edgy elements, an intimate art-lined lounge, and a roof terrace serving fine craft cocktails. Befitting its cool downtown neighborhood, it feels fresh, just a bit trendy (contemporary portrait photography, edgy coffee table books everywhere, sleek and modern furniture).
