"Fresh" is the word for pet-friendly Hotel Indigo NYC Chelsea. Opened in December 2009, this boutique hotel boasts a fresh, organic design in the heart of Manhattan's Flower District, a verdant oasis brimming with profusions of freshly cut blooms. You'll also be steps from the hip and historic Chelsea neighborhood, renowned for its restaurants, nightlife, and cutting-edge shops and galleries. Walk 20 minutes up fashion-minded Seventh Avenue to reach the Theater District and Times Square, or hop aboard the subway--the train stops just a half-block away. Get your pulse racing with a brisk walk along the new High Line, an elevated park with city and Hudson River views--the closest access is three-quarters of a mile west. You can top off your day at the Empire State Building, just a half-mile from the Hotel Indigo. The panoramas from the 2 sky-high observation decks are particularly glorious at sunset.
Can't get enough of those New York views? The Indigo's chic rooftop bar, Glass, faces the Midtown skyline. Stretch out on a chaise longue and sip a creative cocktail, then head downstairs for contemporary cuisine at Blu, where the menu features main courses of seafood and steak as well as a hearty array of breakfast omelets. Work off some of those calories in the modern, 24-hour fitness center, or attend a complimentary class at the nearby indoor cycling studio Revolve. Another healthy perk: The hotel is entirely smoke-free.
Guestrooms are bright with natural light, gleaming hardwood floors, and colorful contemporary art. Snuggle up in luxury linens and choose from more than 150 channels on the Sony flat-screen HDTV. Enjoy a late-night snack from room service, provided for your convenience 24 hours a day. Need to check email or do a little work? You've got complimentary WiFi available throughout the hotel. Spa-style bathrooms feature natural Aveda products and plush robes. If you can't bear to leave Fido at home, bring him! Pets are welcome here for a surcharge.
