Bottom Line

This health-conscious chain hotel is riddled with wellness-oriented features, including an excellent fitness center with modern machines and in-room fitness zones with exercise balls, yoga mats, and a selection of workout channels. The upper-middle-range property also has a casual eatery that offers various healthy bites and beverages. The 150 guest rooms, though small, are clean and stylish, featuring pleasant contemporary decor and modern conveniences like Keurig machines, mini-fridges, iHome docks, and sleek bathrooms with rainfall showers. The convenient midtown location is close to Penn Station and right by the A, C, and E subway stop, plus it's within walking distance of several top attractions like the Empire State Building. For a nearby alternate with more features, check out the W New York Times Square, which has two restaurants and a bar -- but it's pricier.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Health-oriented chain hotel with stylish, contemporary interiors

A new brand from the IHG chain, EVEN hotels aim at promoting a health-conscious lifestyle while traveling via a plethora of wellness features and amenities. This Times Square outpost does just that, with great fitness facilities and a healthy casual dining option, as well as small and thoughtful details like a hydration station in the lobby and a lovely green wall sprouting plants by the entrance. Stylish, contemporary interiors are peppered with pops of color, like bright orange stools in the lobby and fun bleacher-style wooden seating accented by patterned pillows, that overlooks the dining space below. Cork and Kale, the hotel's fast-casual eatery, features wooden tables and stools and offers a relaxed vibe. Overall, this is a great choice in a convenient, central location that's suited for business travelers as well as tourists. Past guests rave about the friendly and attentive service here.
