With more than 20 theaters within a 10-minute walk, the aptly named Muse hotel is an inspired choice for a New York City getaway. Located in Midtown Manhattan, this stylish boutique hotel is just 3 blocks from the heart of Times Square. You can pick up discounted show tickets at the Times Square TKTS booth, a 5-minute walk from The Muse. Manhattan's famed Restaurant Row, a quarter-mile west, includes well-known eateries like B. Smith, Becco, and Orso--perfect for a pre-theater dinner. Rockefeller Center and shopping on Fifth Avenue are also a quarter-mile away.
Designed by architect and set designer David Rockwell, The Muse welcomes you into an artistically appointed lobby with a dual-sided fireplace and a dreamlike forest installation. Leather benches and upholstered chairs are arranged to encourage friendly chats over complimentary morning coffee and tea. In the evening, the lobby's living room is the setting for a complimentary wine reception, which also includes tea, artisan chocolates, and energy bars. Sip a glass of Syrah and check your email--complimentary wireless Internet access is available throughout the hotel.
NIOS, the onsite restaurant, serves American comfort food with a creative twist. Ask the restaurant’s Master Sommelier for wine advice, or sample the signature cocktails conjured up by the Master Mixologist.
Guestrooms help you unwind in style and comfort. Pillowtop mattresses are layered with goose-down featherbeds, Frette linens, and down duvets. iHome clock radios with iPod docking stations are bedside. Wrap yourself in a signature animal-print bathrobe and choose from more than 150 channels, including HBO and Showtime, on the high-definition LCD TV. The TV also includes the hotel's dedicated yoga channel. You can inquire at the front desk for a tote bag with a yoga mat and other gear. In-room safes accommodate laptops. Bathrooms are stocked with spa-inspired, eco-friendly Etro toiletries; unused products are donated to area charities. Recycling bins are provided in all guestrooms. In-room spa treatments utilize organic products. And the hotel is entirely smoke-free.
You can maintain a healthy fitness routine in the 24-hour fitness center. Or go out for a walk with your dog: The Muse welcomes pets at no extra charge.
