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

Hotel Metro

Scene

An understated boutique option with a serene vibe

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.

Features

More features than many other mid-range boutique hotels

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