Take a trip downtown to a neighborhood in Lower Manhattan known for being the home of New York City’s most treasured artists’ lofts and galleries, a variety of shops ranging from trendy upscale boutiques like Versace to national and international chain store outlets like J.Crew. It is an area that is an archetypal example of everything that makes the city fabulous all in one neighborhood. It is here that you will find Hotel Hugo.
Hotel Hugo is fresh, new, and now open. Hotel Hugo delivers unparalleled city and river views including those of both the Freedom Tower and the Empire State Building as well as bespoke guest experiences.
The hotel was designed by Beverly Hills-based architect Marcello Pozzi, and is a true boutique hotel down to the detail and care that goes in the the decor of the lobby, restaurant, rooms, and breathtaking rooftop bar. The property features 124 guest rooms, and two top floor suites, with plush robes, a stocked minibar (with top shelf products), and a bed that s so comfortable you literally may never want to leave!
The best part of the hotel is the rooftop cocktail lounge with 360 degree city views of NYC-a view that few can compete with. The hotel’s bar has already played host to exclusive intimate and very private high profiled events for A-list celebrities. The hotel also includes Il Principe, an Italian restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating by restaurateur Sean Largotta of Crown Group Hospitality. This hotel is the perfect staycation, date spot, or place to grab after work drinks.
As soon as you enter the lobby your jaw will drop when you get a look at the front desk with a wall of live plants as the back wall. Drawing inspiration from the neighborhood’s early 20th century architectural heritage, Hotel Hugo’s design juxtaposes raw industrial elements with elegant modern finishes. This includes high-gloss, imported Italian walnut paneling, chrome fixtures and exposed concrete.
The staff is friendly, down to earth, and knowledgeable. The cocktails are by far some of the best in the city. Try the Hugo! The hotel is a gem that truly must be experienced.
