Bottom Line

On a busy block just off of Herald Square, the mid-range Hotel Metro is attractive and tranquil. The Art Deco-themed lobby is cozy, with plush beige seating, and the breakfast room -- where a free continental spread is served -- doubles as a quiet lounge during the day. Room decor continues the Art Deco look, bathrooms are sleek, and modern amenities include flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and iPod docks. A highlight during the warmer months is the rooftop bar, complete with breathtaking views of the Empire State Building.

Oyster Hotel Review


An understated boutique option with a serene vibe

The tranquil lobby incorporates Art Deco design touches, such as a chandelier, mirrored columns, and photos of old Hollywood

The surrounding area may be hectic (the hotel is just a block from Herald Square), but Hotel Metro maintains a tranquil vibe throughout its rooms and common spaces. An attractive Art Deco theme pervades with warm colors, plush velvet furniture, and framed black-and-white Hollywood photos. After breakfast service, the breakfast room transforms into a cozy lounge, and guests can dine in the adjoining Metro Grill for lunch and dinner. The hotel also features small fitness and business centers. An equal mix of business and leisure travelers choose this property, which is located near both corporate offices and popular tourist sights.


A block from Herald Square

Map of Hotel Metro

Hotel Metro is on a busy street just a block from Herald Square. The location is not particularly charming, but it is a great jumping-off point for sightseeing; numerous subway lines are just a block away, as is the Empire State Building. Business travelers also find the location convenient to numerous office buildings, and it's a 5-minute drive to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.


Art-Deco-inspired rooms feature warm decor, upscale toiletries, and modern amenities.

The Premier Queen Room incorporates subtle geometric patterns, continuing the Art Deco style of the hotel

The 181 rooms are decorated in reds, golds, and browns, and feature Art Deco-inspired accents, such as subtle geometric patterns. Small but sleek bathrooms have hairdryers and upscale toiletries. Modern amenities include free Wi-Fi, iPod docks, and flat-screen TVs.

Premier Rooms offer added amenities such as work desks, coffeemakers, and mini-fridges stocked with free sodas and waters. Located on the top four floors, they also boast nicer views and are further removed from street noise.


More features than many other mid-range boutique hotels

The rooftop garden terrace and bar provides views of the Empire State Building in summer months

Hotel Metro may have a boutique feel, but unlike many mid-range boutique hotels, it boasts a number of property features.

To start, the hotel offers a free daily breakfast; there are no hot items on the menu, but items include bagels, muffins, cereal, yogurt, fruit, and of course, coffee. The adjoining Metro Grill opens for lunch and dinner and, during the summer months, guests can enjoy cocktails and views at the rooftop bar. Hotel guests can access the roof throughout the year if they're willing to brave the cold.

The hotel also has a small fitness center featuring several cardio and weight-training machines, as well as free weights and flat-screen TVs. There is also a salon and a small business center.
