It is the little things that make a difference at the Archer Hotel New York. Modern travelers have come to expect standard hotel amenities such as coffee makers, robes, slippers and even turndown service. At the Archer, they’ve raised the bar. Recognizing that their guests don’t want commonplace, they have added exceptional touches that make an ordinary hotel stay extraordinary.
Everyone knows location is everything. This is especially true in New York City. The Archer Hotel sits squarely in Midtown Manhattan making makes it easy for guests to get uptown or buzz downtown posthaste. The Theater District, Fifth Avenue, and Times Square are all within walking distance. The Archer is also within a shadow’s distance of the Empire State Building. Be sure to book a room with a view of the iconic skyscraper. You will be able to lay in bed and take in this stunning view each night through floor-to-ceiling windows.
These days at the bare minimum every hotel room has a coffee pot. Keurig machines have become the defacto standard. The Archer Hotel ups their game by taking this amenity one step further. In an attempt to make improve your morning cup of joe, or maybe just your morning in general, you will find a Nespresso machine in your room. If you enjoy a hot cup of coffee before you shower, you will know this is an absolute delight.
The Turn Down Service
I enjoy turndown service. It is always nice to come back to your room in the evening to find the shades drawn, the bed made and a little something sweet on your pillow. Each night the Archer Hotel incorporates locally curated treats into their nightly turndown service. With notes that wish you sweet dreams and encourage you to live a little, how could anyone possibly resist these 100-calorie Dylan’s Candy Bars?
Slide back the door to reveal a shiny black and white subway tiled bathroom where the lights come on automatically. A real plus for those of us who get up in the middle of the night. The large walk-in shower is stocked with great smelling, all natural Malin + Goetz toiletries. A pile of opulent Frette towels and adorable his and hers slippers are tucked into the vanity. My husband and I have had the privilege of staying in a lot of hotels, which means we’ve seen our fair share of hotel bathrooms. I can safely say the Archer Hotel is a real standout.
You don’t need to look any farther than the Archer Hotel for great New York City eats. Choose from light bites in the Foyer Bar or dine off the full menu at Charlie Palmer Steak. The restaurant has recently relocated to the hotel and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you are just looking for a drink and perhaps some snacks to share, take the elevator to the 22nd floor. There you can grab a seat at Spyglass Rooftop Bar and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Chrysler and Empire State Buildings
With superior amenities and fantastic service, this boutique hotel has earned a top spot on my list of places to stay next time I am in town.
